Review: Weil By Nature's Path Organic Chocolada Walnut Pure Fruit And Nut Bar

If you have been looking for a healthy alternative to chocolate or granola bars – look no further! I have just tried a few flavors of a new health bar called Weil, after Dr. Andrew Weil, who formulated them with Nature’s Path Company.

Dr. Andrew Weil is a key innovative person in the United States for integrative medicine which includes a balanced approach to health, using the mind, body and spirit. He has teamed up with Nature’s Path, an already popular organic company to bring forth a revolutionary new bar to the health food scene just this past year. Also, all proceeds from the sale of these bars are donated to the Weil Foundation.

Not only are these bars certified organic, they are also vegan-friendly, gluten-free, do not contain any genetically modified ingredients and contain nothing artificial and no added sugar.

The bars come in the following 5 varieties:

Weil By Nature’s Path Organic Chocolada Walnut Pure Fruit And Nut Bars, 1.6-Ounce Bars (Pack of 16)

Weil By Nature’s Path Organic Goji Moji Pure Fruit And Nut Bars, 1.6-Ounce Bars (Pack of 16)

Weil By Nature’s Path Organic Banana Manna Pure Fruit And Nut Bars, 1.6-Ounce Bars (Pack of 16)

Weil By Nature’s Path Organic Chia Razz Pure Fruit And Nut Bars, 1.6-Ounce Bars (Pack of 16)

Weil By Nature’s Path Organic Pistachi-oh! Pure Fruit And Nut Bars, 1.6-Ounce Bars (Pack of 16)

The bars have an excellent texture that is soft and chewy, yet not sticky.

The taste and flavor of this bar surprised me a bit at first – do not expect a typical chocolate taste. However, after a few bites a delicious cocoa and coconut flavor infuses your mouth. I also tried the goji berry one and it was very refreshing in a citrusy kind of way.

Aside from the great taste and texture, the list of ingredients cannot be beat. This is truly a fantastic product for anyone looking for a nutritious, delicious and healthy snack.
