When I attended the TypeA Conference in Charlotte earlier this summer, I had the opportunity to meet and chat with the representatives from ZonePerfect. All conference goers also got to try their bars. I was super impressed with both the flavor of the bars I tried there and the company’s history.
ZonePerfect has a history of turning out a nutritionally sound and delicious product. To do this, they have often relied on a creative approach to nutrition to come up with their really amazing flavors. I love that, as a company, ZonePerfect nurtures the creativity that lets their company thrive by supporting music programs in public schools across the country.
As a mom with three boys attending public schools, I love the idea of supporting a company that supports their education. I also love the idea of being able to serve them a nutrition bar with minimal ingredients and a delicious flavor which is what I found when I tried their Perfectly Simple bars at TypeA. Of course, we all know that kids don’t always agree with their parents opinion on flavor and food. Luckily, that wasn’t the case here.
My review sample of the Perfectly Simple bars came in while I was in NYC at BlogHer’12. Sadly, this meant there were no bars left for me when I got home. According to my husband, the Perfectly Simple bars didn’t even last 24 hours in our house. Vic and my boys got to try all three flavors of Perfectly Simple bars – Toasted Coconut, Peanut Crunch, and Cranberry Almond. All 3 bars got rave reviews but the favorite, by far, was the Cranberry Almond bar. Vic said it had a great blend of flavors with neither flavor overpowering the other. Joey said he really like it. Marty wanted to know when we could buy more. Vic also said that the Perfectly Simple bars have a really nice level of moisture without losing the crunchy texture they all loved…unlike many bars, these ones didn’t crumble when removed from packaging. Over all, I’d say these bars were a huge hit and I would definitely recommend them to anyone interested in nutritionally sound bars with a simply perfect blend of a few delicious ingredients.
