Product review: Squarebar! For all your vegan bar needs!  »


Since Clif Bar got in seriously hot water with ethically minded folks everywhere due to the company’s lack of transparency regarding its cacao-sourcing, I’ve been on the lookout for a bar with the same nutrition content, consistency and crunchiness of a Luna or Clif bar.

Squarebar, a relative newcomer to the vegan bar market, comes in three flavors, and comped me one of each: cocoa almond, cocoa crunch, and cocoa coconut. Each flavor is squishy inside and crunchy outside, and yes, I can honestly say I believe they will definitely satisfy any Clif or Luna cravings.

These are high in protein, which is pretty groovy if you plan to use these to fuel your hike from a meditation circle in Dolores Park to your girlfriend’s sixth-floor walkup in the ‘loin. The cocoa chocolate tastes the most like chocolate Clif bars, but without the gunky vitamin aftertaste. Perfect!

While not raw, these bars are gluten-free, organic, non-GMO, and sweetened with two of my fave low-glycemic sweeteners, coconut nectar and stevia. I’m partial to raw things, but if you like Luna or Clif bars, these will seriously satisfy without the guilt of supporting a company that won’t expose its sourcing practices. Squarebars are available at local health food store or order them online.
