These generously-sized vegan gummy bites are literally bursting with fruity flavor. We loved the taste, organic ingredients, and the ability to have a sweet energetic treat as a supplement.

Lately, I need all of the energy that I can get, but didn’t expect to find it in a sweet gummy format. BOLT Organic Energy Chews by ProBar are generously-sized gummy bites, bursting with flavor, and packed with electrolytes, complex carbs, B vitamins, and caffeine (from Yerba Mate – but don’t worry, you can’t taste it!).

ProBar BOLT Organic Energy Chews - Vegan

Available in four very fruity varieties (Berry Blast, Orange, Raspberry, and Strawberry) BOLT Energy Chews make for a very tasty supplement. Our gummy lovin’ teenage gal said these were “weird” but not in a bad way. That said, we adults were the ones who couldn’t eat just one, and eventually devoured several of these fruity bags.

Unlike ordinary gummies, BOLT Organic Energy Chews lack gelatin; they still have that gummy vibe but are softer and naturally vegan / vegetarian. Overall, we really liked that the BOLT Energy Chews could stand-in when we were craving a little sweet treat, while still offering some nutrition and a little get-up-and-go. All four flavors are very tasty (couldn’t pick a favorite), and I thought it was cool that they have truly natural flavor ingredients like organic blueberry and acai powders.

ProBar BOLT Organic Energy Chews - Vegan and Gluten-Free

For us, the only drawback is they taste so good that Tony downed an entire bag (2 servings) and wasn’t feeling fantastic – he had a bit of a stomachache and perhaps a B vitamin overload. I’d love it if they had single-serve packs of these energy chews for portion-control or larger bags that were obviously more than one servings for a budget and packaging-friendly option. The two-serving packages look deceptively like a single-serve, and don’t have the ability to re-seal, tempting you to eat the whole thing!

Dietary Notes: By ingredients, BOLT Organic Energy Chews are vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, soy-free, and tree nut-free. Nonetheless, check with the company on their manufacturing processes for all varieties if potential allergen cross-contamination is an issue for you.
