Several bar brands have come out with new lines that are just a slight variation from their other products. But Pure Organic Ancient Grain & Nut Crispy Bars have several degrees of separation between them and the original Pure Bars line up. These date-less bars have more of a granola vibe, but with crispy little bites of popular gluten-free grains.
Tasting Notes for Pure Organic Ancient Grain Bars
They had four flavors of these bars, but according to their website, they’ve trimmed the product line to include just these two:
Both Tony and I really enjoyed this bar. It has a deep underlying peanut butter flavor, pleasant cocoa backdrop, and seamless, perfectly sweet taste. It’s crunchy and chewy with just the right amount of interest going on.

Contains peanut ingredients. Made on equipment that handles tree nuts.
We weren’t as wowed by this variety, which is surprising since vanilla is usually my favorite flavor. The almonds took center stage, playing off of the grainy base, but they didn’t taste quite as fresh as hoped. Nonetheless, the vanilla eventually emerges for a pleasant finish.
