A few weeks ago I bought a Weil By Nature’s Path Organic Goji Moji Pure Fruit and Nut Bar. Even though I didn’t expect to love the Goji Moji bar I did and so I began to try all of the flavors that these fruit and nut bars came in.
The next flavor I tried was the Weil by Nature’s Path Banana Manna bar. I go through periods where I really love bananas and then I go through periods when I really hate them, when I tried the Banana Manna bar I was in my hate period.
I hated the softness, the blandness, and the flavor of bananas, but I have an open mind and decided to try Dr. Weil’s bar because I had a feeling it would taste good. Also love them or hate them bananas are very sweet and at this point I hadn’t had any sugar in weeks and I was craving something that was naturally sweet.
The Nature’s Path Banana Manna Bar was created by Dr. Andrew Weil so that people on the go could have access to a natural bar that would be satisfying while giving them the stable energy to get between meals.
The Weil Organic Banana Manna Pure Fruit and Nut Bar contains only three ingredients. Organic dates, organic dried bananas and organic almonds. Sounds delicious!
The bar has 180 calories 50 of which are from fat. It has 6g of fat, 0g of saturated and trans fats, 0g of cholesterol and sodium. It contains 29g of carbs, 4g of fiber, 22g of sugar, and 3g of protein. The fruit bar also has 2% of the daily value of Vitamin C, 4% of calcium, and 8% of iron.
Even though there are only three ingredients that don’t seem too exciting the Banana Manna bar is actually really delicious. All the ingredients have been blended so the bar is brown. It is really smooth and soft but it’s still firm and tough.
The dates have this mild but sweet taste that compliments the bananas really well. When you bite into it it’s like this nice burst of sweetness plus the tangy-ness of fresh bananas explodes in your mouth. And although the almonds don’t stand out dramatically, I can still detect a nutty flavor that brings it all the flavors together really well.
Besides the flavor I also appreciate how texture of this bar. I’ve had other on the go bars that have been really dried out and artificial tasting. But the Weil Bar still has a lot of moisture in it and tastes quite fresh because they don’t contain any preservatives.
I do wish this bar was chunkier at times because it would be more filling when you’re really hungry, but I think the reason why it’s so blended is because it allows the flavors to really blend and come together. If there were big chunks of bananas and dates each individual flavor would probably stand out way to much.
I highly recommend the Weil By Nature’s Path Organic Banana Manna Bar which costs $2 for a 1.6 oz bar. It’s the perfect snack to give you a stable rise in energy when you need it. Or it’s just great when you are really craving sweets but you want to enjoy a healthy treat. I think most people would actually like this bar, even one of my friends who is a sugar fiend actually said it was very good. I highly recommend it 5 out 5 stars.
