Review: RXBAR Chocolate Sea Salt

Let's kick 2017 off with a food review, shall we?  I need to start doing these more often!

RXBAR is a brand I came across when I was doing my detox last summer.  Very simple ingredients - and dairy free, soy free and gluten free.  These chocolate sea salt bars have only 7 ingredients: "Dates, Egg Whites, Almonds, Cashews, Cacao, Sea Salt, Natural Chocolate Flavor".  Gotta love that.  

Dates and the nuts aren't exactly low calorie/low fat, so you do see those reflected in the nutritional stats.  I'm trying to think positive because it's all natural ingredients, but it is still 200 calories for a small bar.

How's the taste?  I've tried other flavors in the past, but this was my first try of the chocolate sea salt flavor.  It wasn't overly chocolately - if you hadn't told me it was chocolate, I might not have picked that out.  I did enjoy the few grains of big sea salt crystals on top.  It's a dense bar, and a bit more sugar than I'm looking for traditionally when I'm looking to add some protein as a snack.  I'm torn right now as to if I should recommend it!  I like this company and their product line, I'm just not a raving fan of this particular flavor.  Blueberry was a bigger hit for me.  They're on the pricey side too - $2 per bar at Trader Joe's.  I do appreciate the natural ingredients though... ;)
