Name: Tropical Mango Bar

Brand: Lydia's Organics

Origin: Fairfax


Found at: Other Avenues (3930 Judah)

Cost: $2.59

Ingredients: Bananas, coconut, mango, pineapple and love

Calories per serving: 110

Why I bought it: It's raw, vegan and organic and free of sugar, gluten and oil. I wondered what that would taste like.



Tasting notes: It has a lovely, natural sweetness. The package suggests eating this as is or re-hydrating it; the latter is a really good idea since it is super tough and hard otherwise; it's almost inedible.

Would I buy it again? No, I'll just eat the fresh fruit components instead.

What other sites/blogs thought of it: Yummy Diet Food is a fan, declaring it "really tasty."
