The company thinkproducts has recently introduced a new line of bars called the thinkFruit bars. These are unprocessed bars made from fruits and nuts, very reminiscent of Larabars but with a few more ingredients. Not nearly as straight forward as the Larabar ingredients lists, these bars add agave, flaxseed, natural flavors, and pectin to their fruit and nut lineup, but it’s still a far cry from soy crisps and palm kernel oil.
The Peanut Goji Glow bar was the first bar I tried from this company. The bar tasted decadent yet playful. It hinted at memories of childhood PB & J sandwiches with the balance of nutty and sweet, but the soft, luscious, melt-in-your-mouth texture gave it an all-grown-up feeling. It was not overtly sweet and there was no artificial after taste, just real authentic deliciousness. Next time I see this bar in a store, I won’t think twice before I toss a handful into my cart. They are definitely a great find!
