We all know that fruit is good for us, but how often have we bought fruit with the intention of eating it yet watched it go bad in the course of a few days?  I know I have. OneBar are small bars made of pure fruit that are enriched with baobab for added antioxidants as well as chicory inulin for fiber. Why so small? They are exactly the size that equals a serving of fruit so now you can enjoy your fruit without worrying about spoilage.

OneBars are new on the market and I had the opportunity to try them at Expo West. They are satisfyingly good with a rich fruit taste. I honestly can't say I liked one more than the other as all three flavors were delicious.

The apple tastes like you are eating an apple in bar form with a touch of pear.

The mango is like pure mango flavor as that is exactly what it is!

The same goes for the cherry. Absolutely delish.

You are probably wondering what the heck baobab is. So was I. It seems to be a trend for this year -- yet another superfruit. This one is new to the US though the health benefits have been known to Africans for centuries. The baobab fruit is a whole food source of essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. It has high levels of vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

The best part about these bars is that there is no added sugar or nuts. And all the bars are vegan and gluten-free as well as fair-trade sourced.  Currently they are only sold in the San Francisco bay area, but you can also find them online here. For only 99-cents per bar, you really can't go wrong.

Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that in no way influences my veracious opinion.
