Lydia's Organic Tropical Mango Bar

tropical mango coconut low calorie barFirst of all, feel free to laugh at me for the picture that is associated with this post today. I really wanted to blog about this bar that I love called "Tropical Mango Bar", but I simply can't snap a great picture of it. So the picture you see is the one that the company (Lydia's Organics) has on their web site. I guess the picture makes sense for the most part, since the bar's ingredients include *only* bananas, coconut and mango (all pictured), as well as pineapple (not pictured), but I'm not entirely sure where the statue comes in. But I digress... :)

This bar is really tasty if you like the taste of the tropical fruits that I mentioned above. It is totally raw, vegan, gluten-free, organic, and oil free. It only has fruit in it! But, unlike other fruit-only bars, it is hard, thick, and crunchy rather than fruity and chewy, making it quite filling (I actually find the taste to be pretty strong). The consistency reminds me a bit of a granola bar (I'm always on the lookout for great low calorie granola by the way!).

In terms of calories, the bar is 43g and has only 110 calories, 7 grams of fat (healthy fat from the coconut), 3 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of protein (so 2 weight watchers points). It also has 10% of the RDA of Vitamin C which is an added plus. I buy these bars at Whole Foods, but I see it is also available in a bunch of natural food stores in various states.

Enjoy!
Juliet
