Each Jonesbar consists of a handful of ingredients, which they conveniently list on the front of their fun and bright packaging. They want you to be able to pick up any of their bars and instantly know you’re making a solid choice. Made with ingredients like dates and mango, almonds, chia seeds and coconut, these bars will give you a light and healthy boost. Don’t let their small size fool you, these little bars pack quite a punch at between 170-200 calories each! This bar is a fantastic companion for any hike, bike ride or even just a day in the office.
Jonesbar is offered in four delicious flavors:
- PB and J
- Peanut Butter
Let’s break down the flavors!
I was amazed by the deliciousness of these four simple ingredients. Like a tropical paradise, the tartness of this bar immediately won me over. Because these bars are fruit based with dates, fruit flavors have a natural advantage for this bar, in my opinion. It’s tender, not too chewy and has fun little chia “pops” throughout. We’re definitely off to a good start with this flavor!
PB and J
Using only 5 whole-food ingredients, these bars truly replicate the mouthwatering flavors of a classic peanut butter and jam sandwich. Just a single bite brings back memories of being a kid as peanut butter and jelly was one of my absolute favorites. Simple yet delicious!
Love at first bite – this is peanut butter perfection! Straight up peanut butter taste without any other flavor competing. These taste great and are full of nothing but goodness – just peanuts, dates, sea salt and chia seeds. It is delicious and addictive so watch out!
In case you didn’t know, I love coconut and this bar does it perfectly! It tastes just like real coconut and not overly sweet. The coconut flavor is really pronounced while the chewy texture from the almonds and chia seeds almost gives the subtly of a mounds bar(without the chocolate). I’m a huge fan.
Overall these bars are a winner. What you see on the front of the wrapper is what you get. They certainly deliver on that. I say kudos to the Jonesbar team for sticking to their beliefs and using natures gifts to create a product that is nutritious and tastes great. My favorites in order of preference; Coconut, PB and J, Peanut Butter and Mango.
