They say that good things come in small packages, and that’s certainly true of BGood’s Peanut Ginger energy bar.
BGood calls it an “artisan chocolate energy bar,” foreshadowing the creative medley of flavors that is more fitting of a chocolatier’s fine truffle rather than an energy bar.
First, there’s a wave of bitter-sweetness from the dark chocolate, which coats the bottom of the bar, thus hitting your palate first. It seems to be a higher quality chocolate than we normally see–it’s Guittard fair trade Dark Chocolate–and, it has a nice firm texture to it.
There’s a wholesome and satisfying feel to the nut butter filling, starring the organic peanuts, but also includes cashews, gluten-free rolled oats, honey, and organic flax seed meal. While small in size, you can really feel this bar sticking to your ribs.
Without being overpowering, the organic ginger elevates the complexity of the flavor with a fresh little zing. The sesame seeds on top are also a nice touch. It adds to the presentation, reinforcing the artisan nature of this bar, plus it imparts a nice texture.
This tiny bar surprisingly packs 240 calories, perfect if you’re focused on calorie-dense foods.
This bar has been a favorite of Trailfoody customers, which is why we’ve included it again, this time in the November Trailfoody.
Here’s What Our Tasters Had to Say
“I like to save this treat for when I reach the summit. The amount of energy packed into this compact bar amazed me.”
“It’s like a piece of art. First, the dark chocolate liquor. Then, the peanut butter and a dash of honey combine, ending with a subtle zing of ginger.”
“Britt dropped some on the ground, but Grif beat me to it.”
