*BumbleBar Review*

BumbleBar is great company that offers a selection of organic energy bars.  They generously sent me their Lushus Lemon, Chunky Cherry, Chocolate Crisp, Original, Original with Almonds, and Apricot flavors.
We ate these up very quickly!  They were gone the day after they arrived:)  My mom's favorite was the Lushus Lemon, and my dad's was the Almond.  (He loves nuts:)  I personally enjoyed the Chocolate Crisp the best. 

What a BumbleBar looks like :-)

These are VERY healthy energy bars- all BumbleBars are gluten-free, great for vegetarians, wheat-free-, and dairy-free. And there is lots of fiber in them as well!  These would make a great snack for after school or on the road.  They come in brightly-colored wrappers, and are not messy which is good for little children:)  I like how there are lots of minerals and vitamins with little sugar.  If you like sesame seeds, you will like these!  BumbleBars are tasty snack that you and your family will enjoy!

The Story of BumbleBar
Elizabeth (Liz) Ward got her inspiration for the BumbleBar one day while hiking. "I'm an avid hiker. Before I got engrossed in this business, I used to go hiking almost every weekend," she says. " I lived out in the woods without electricity or running water, and I would hike eight miles every day. Being out there, it seemed like this incredible oxymoron that it's so beautiful in nature, but at the same time hikers are eating food that harms the planet (i.e. conventionally grown and/or dairy-based foods). I wanted to develop an all-organic, gluten-free food that people could take out into the wilderness."
In 1995, she sold her first BumbleBar. But this tasty, sesame seed-based treat isn't just for taking out into the woods. It's great as an afternoon snack or dessert. And kids love it, too. The bar passed the most important taste test: Liz's 13-year-old son Jed loves the bar. "It's soooo good you can't even believe!" he exclaims.
Afew months later, Liz's partner, Glenn Ward, joined the company. His role is to create a value-led business that uses sustainable practices. Liz and Glenn are highly committed to a variety of social issues, including women's rights, recycling and strengthening their local community of Spokane, Washington. In the last year, they have donated thousands of bars to numerous local and national charity events." As we grow, we plan to get even more involved in these issues," Liz says.
"I've always loved food," Liz adds. "My mother was a great cook and I grew up in the kitchen helping her. In the Midwest in high school, I helped out cooking at a soup kitchen for the homeless. Food is something that has always been positive for me. I love sharing food with people; I feel it brings a lot of joy and quality into peoples' lives. It's incredibly rewarding to know that thousands of people are out there enjoying our all-organic, vegan, gluten-free bars."
