There are quite a few bars on the market, but Real Food Bar founders, Anna and Sean, thought they could do it better. They’ve traveled the world on hiking adventures, and never quite found the perfect fuel – so they created it. In fact, they’ve developed three flavors, and each one is inspired by a favorite hiking location.
Real Food Bar Goes the Distance for Healthy Dairy-Free Snacking
These chewy bars are very fulfilling with a good balance of fat, fiber, protein, and natural sugars for sustained energy. I always hesitate on calling a bar a “meal replacement” (even though we’ve all done it!), but these really are heftier than most brands on the market. I could easily see packing Real Food Bar on a hiking trip or simply keeping a stash for an on-the-go day. And knowing me, I would keep an assortment. I always like to bounce around between flavors, and Real Food Bar currently has three enticing options.
Cacao Sea Salt
I’m not surprised this is their top seller. It’s lightly sweet and salty with generously-sized chocolate chips.

Won me over for lasting energy
I’ll admit that when I first tasted these bars, I found them a bit too dense with protein powder. But I couldn’t deny how full and energized they kept me for hours. We’ve been traveling by train to various countries, and dairy-free breakfasts haven’t always been easy to come by. But one of these bars keeps me going all morning. And I’ve been warming up to the very dense texture. I enjoyed the flavors from the start. They are just sweet enough and actually taste like the flavors on the label. And I love, love, love that they don’t use stevia or any other odd-tasting sweeteners. There are no “funny” notes in the flavor. I think the cacao is my favorite (it has chocolate chips throughout), but the peanut butter is the most fulfilling.
