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."
