When I was out in San Francisco for Thanksgiving, I discovered a delicious new snack bar one morning when I went on a short walk in search of a latte.
I was very impressed by the short list of all natural and organic ingredients, and I just love the name, Awesome Bars. When I went to their website, I was ecstatic to learn that the business is a collaboration between two sisters, Leah and Stephanie.
Delicious granola bars, handmade by a team of awesome sisters?! I just had to know more!
Leah and Stephanie started their business just three years ago, in January 2010. They are currently available in 95 coffee shops and natural food stores in the bay area or online, but they will soon be available in the D.C. area (the girls grew up in Virginia!).
Awesome Bars currently come in 5 delicious flavors:
Coconut Pecan: oats with toasted coconut, pecans, raisins, sea salt, and dark chocolate.
Blueberry Almond: oats with roasted almonds, dried blueberries, sea salt, and dark chocolate.
Cherry Almond: oats with roasted almonds, tart cherries, sea salt, and dark chocolate.
Cranberry Trail Mix: oats with pecans, almonds, cashews, flax seeds, dried cranberries, sea salt, and dark chocolate.
Salty Peanut: oats with peanuts, sea salt, and dark chocolate.
All of the bars have a light dark chocolate coating on top. It adds just the right amount of chocolate to the oaty/nutty goodness of the bars. I love that you really taste the chewy oats. Every flavor is terrific, though I think I might have liked the Cherry Almond best (Coconut Pecan and Salty Peanut come in close second).
Since I loved my first taste so much, I asked the Awesome sisters if they might share an Awesome Bars Taster Pack (1 each of the 5 awesome flavors) with one of our readers. They loved hearing about another awesome set of sisters “doing awesome things together” and said yes!
