CORE Keto Bars Review – Low Carb Goodness with Probiotics
REVIEW – I get excited every time I get an email offering to send samples of a Keto food that I’ve never heard of. What can I say, I love to eat and carbohydrates are my enemy (stupid pre-diabetes grrrrr). The latest taste test is for CORE bars from CORE Foods. Let’s check them out.
What is that?
CORE Keto Bars are snack bars made with real food. You even need to keep them in the fridge (although they can sit on the counter for up to a week without spoiling). CORE also sent me their regular bars which I haven’t tried myself, but my non-prediabetic significant other has tried them, so I’m going to talk about that too … but not as much as the Keto bars.
Flavor and Nutrition
Let’s start with the regular CORE bars which are available in 6 flavors including Peanut Butter Crunch, Blueberry Banana Almond, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Cherry, Coconut Chocolate Chip, and Mocha Chip Espresso.
Like CORE Keto Bars, regular bars contain probiotics that can help boost immunity. Bars contain 220-240 calories, 6-10g protein, and 22-26 net grams of carbohydrate (Total Carbs – Dietary Fiber = Net Carbs).
As for the ingredients, I won’t list them for every flavor, but for dark chocolate cherry the ingredients are listed above. The great thing about these Keto or Regular Bars is that the ingredients are organic and real. Nothing strange or bad for you. No fake sweeteners either!
What about the taste you ask? Well, according to Jeanne, she loved them. The texture was chewy and the flavor was good without being too sweet. His first question after eating the first bar was if we could buy more.
And that brings us to the price of regular CORE bars. I think they are pricey at $ 24.00 for a box of 8 bars, or $ 3 per pair. You can save 15% if you subscribe and then pay $ 20.40 per box.
Keto CORE Bars
Now on to the good stuff (for me)… their Keto Bars. CORE has 2 flavors of their Keto Bars: Peanut Butter Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt. CORE only sent me the peanut butter chocolate flavor (damn it) so this is the only one I can talk about.
Keto bars contain 160-170 calories, contain 6-7 grams of protein, and only 3g net carbs per bar. Let’s discover the ingredients of the 100% vegetable peanut butter chocolate bar.
These bars also contain prebiotics and probiotics.
Like CORE’s other bars, you will need to keep Keto Bars in the fridge unless you plan to eat them within a week. Usually I take one out of the fridge in the morning and eat it about an hour later so it is at room temperature.
The peanut butter chocolate bar has a very strong peanut butter flavor which is a good thing because I love peanut butter. However, I don’t taste like chocolate. The texture of the bar is chewy with small pieces of peanuts. It’s really good.
I like to eat one of these bars for my breakfast and I find it keeps me from being hungry for a few hours (until lunch).
And for the price, you get 10 bars for $ 30, which brings them down to $ 3 a bar. You can subscribe and save 15% $ 25.50 for a box of 10. The price is a bit more expensive than the comparable bars I buy.
What I like
- Clean the real ingredients
- Good taste
What i would change
- Lower the price
- More Keto Bar Flavors
If you are looking for vegan, gluten free, kosher, non-GMO, organic meal / snack bars, CORE bars are really tasty. If you are in need of Low Carb / Keto, CORE Keto Bars are amazing. As for the value, you will be paying a bit more than other Keto Bars / Non Keto Bars, so you will have to take that into account. I really like the Keto bars and Jane likes the regular bars, so I think it’s safe to say that CORE has a new customer.
Price: $ 24.95 for 8 bars (regular CORE bars), $ 30.00 for 10 bars (CORE Keto bars)
