SORTEDfood: LivBar Featured in Episode of "Taste Testing LA 'Food Trend' Products Featuring Donal Skehan"
Episode Except: "The reason I picked it up was because it looked like a really interesting healthy snack and it wasn't for all those wonderful ingredients we have named, but it was for what isn't in there 'gluten free, soy free, dairy free, corn free, GMO free' but also because the packaging...Not only is it free of all those ingredients, it's also plastic free."

Review Excerpt: The folks at LivBars have thought of everything. Where many energy bars are full of isolates, sugars, additives and preservatives, LivBars are not. Instead they are bursting with organic whole superfoods including seeds, coconut, fruit, whole grains and spices. This makes LivBars superfood energy bars that balance protein and complex carbs providing you with real food-fueled energy. They are also major allergen friendly. The package is even compostable! Well done LivBars!
Review excerpt: "I won’t lie – I’m not a huge fan of lemongrass anything. I’ve tried in a lot of different products but, just can’t get behind it…until now that is. This bar was so delicious and filling! It was the perfect combination of lemongrass and cherry flavors. They balanced each other out perfectly so I couldn’t taste one over the other. The consistency was that of a granola bar, but the soft and chewy kind. It also left me satisfied for a while which bars usually don’t. It’s also vegan for any of our vegan followers out there who are looking for a new and delicious snack."
Review Excerpt: "While I’ve always wanted to be the type of person to make my own nutritious bars at home, I never seem to find the time or have the right ingredients. I’ve tried my hand at a few different energy bites but they never turn out just right. So when I found LivBar, I was delighted to see some of my favorite ingredients packed into these healthy options!"
THE DYRT TEAM VERDICT OF LIVBAR:
“I really like that LivBars are made in Salem, OR. It’s great to know that a local small business is behind them. And as someone who usually picks snacks based on flavor instead of substance, I feel comfortable knowing I won’t have to choose between taste or quality ingredients.” — Taylor (usually snacks on Tootsie Rolls)
“It isn’t too mealy or gluey or hard like some health snacks can be. It’s the first time I’ve tried a supplement bar that tastes like real, appealing food instead of dessert-protein Frankenstein.” — Meg (usually snacks on corn chips)
“These bars do a really good job of integrating unique and exciting flavors into something both yummy and filling. I would definitely bring these out on the trail.” — Maggie (usually snacks on frozen waffles)
“The blueberry vanilla kale bars are super tasty and light.” — Sarah (usually snacks on beef jerky)
“I tried the lemongrass, cherry, matcha. I like that it’s made of real ingredients, not artificial junk. The lemongrass flavor really stands out. It’s a nice texture – it’s somewhat hard to the touch but soft and chewy once you bite into it. Really unique flavor options. Love that the wrapper is compostable!” — Anna (usually snacks on granola)
Article excerpt: "They provide the nutrients and energy to get through a day of skiing or snow shoeing. They just taste so natural and they are big enough to enjoy throughout the day if you just need a quick pick me up in-between runs."
