Journey Bars Review + Giveaway (2 Winners)

I was recently given the opportunity to sample the exciting and nutritious Journey Bar. When I received my box from them, the first thing that struck me was the fun little maps on the packaging detailing the regions that inspired each flavor: Coconut Curry (Thailand), Rosemary (France), Pizza Marinara (Italy), Sesame Ginger (Japan), Sea Salt (USA). The journey doesn’t end with the packaging though, the instant you open one you’ll be amazed by the remarkably accurate aromas that will transport you around the world. While each flavor has a distinct aroma, the texture and nutritional benefits remain consistent across the line. All five flavors currently produced by Journey Bar are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and GMO-free.

Journey Bars Review + Giveaway

I took my samples with me on my own little journey to Spain and thanks to the people at Journey Bar, now you have the chance to win your very own Journey Bar sample box.

Journey Bar is sponsoring a giveaway so that two lucky vegan miam readers (US entries only) can take home a sample box that includes five different vegan & gluten-free & soy-free & gmo-free bars.

Our personal favorites are the Coconut Curry and the Pizza Marinara Journey Bars.



coconut curry journey bar


Coconut Curry Journey Bar

Taken outside of a flat in Valencia, Spain (Europe), it was a lovely day, around 33°C. The Coconut Curry Journey Bar tastes faintly of coconut, but mostly curry. The bar is not messy nor greasy to eat during travels. It tastes savory with a little crunch from the quinoa, almonds, and amaranth, but with a smooth, supple texture.

ingredients
whole grain blend (gluten-free oats, organic buckwheat, organic flaxseed), organic tapioca syrup, almonds, whole ancient grain crisps (amaranth, quinoa, brown rice), pea protein isolate, vegetable glycerin, plum puree, non-gmo canola oil, water, pumpkin, sea salt, chicory root, spices, natural flavor, baking soda, onion powder, garlic powder, citric acid.

Contains: Almonds & Coconut

pizza marinara journey bar

Pizza Marinara

After opening the Pizza Marinara Journey Bar package, it invariably hits you: the sweet and fresh smell of pizza essentially ripe tomatoes and herbs. The flavor is a bit sweeter than the Coconut Curry; however it’s great for anyone who like bars on the savory side with a little sweetness like these. It tastes both sweet and savory with a little crunch from the quinoa, almonds, and amaranth, but with a smooth, supple texture.

ingredients
whole grain blend (gluten-free oats, organic buckwheat, organic flaxseed), organic tapioca syrup, almonds, whole ancient grain crisps (amaranth, quinoa, brown rice), pea protein isolate, vegetable glycerin, non-gmo canola oil, plum puree, water, tomato powder, natural flavor, onion powder, sea salt, chicory root, garlic powder, baking soda, spices, citric acid.

Contains: Almonds

rosemary journey bar

Rosemary Journey Bar

The Rosemary Journey Bar delivers a nice and fresh rosemary aroma, but faint Provençal flavor. It tastes savory with a little crunch from the quinoa, almonds, and amaranth, but with a smooth, supple texture.

ingredients
whole grain blend (gluten-free oats, organic buckwheat, organic flaxseed), organic tapioca syrup, almonds, whole ancient grain crisps (amaranth, quinoa, brown rice), pea protein isolate, vegetable glycerin, plum puree, non-gmo canola oil, water, pumpkin, sea salt, chicory root, spices, natural flavor, baking soda, onion powder, garlic powder, citric acid.

sea salt journey bar

Sea Salt Journey Bar

The Sea Salt Journey Bar is like a healthy alternative to salty chips. Look at this one as the plain option, the foundation for the other bars if you like. It has no strong or lingering flavors, other than the sea salt presence.

ingredients
whole grain blend (gluten-free oats, organic buckwheat, organic flaxseed), organic tapioca syrup, almonds, whole ancient grain crisps (amaranth, quinoa, brown rice), pea protein isolate, vegetable glycerin, plum puree, non-gmo canola oil, water, pumpkin, sea salt, chicory root, baking soda, onion powder, garlic powder, natural flavor, citric acid, spices.

sesame ginger journey bar

Journey Bars Review + Giveaway

It was a pretty gloomy day in Valencia, Spain (Europe). It was rainy during the last week of August. The Sesame Ginger Journey Bar has visible sesame seeds with a faint ginger flavor. My last bite consists of a faint spicy sensation from the ginger.

ingredients
whole grain and seed blend (gluten-free oats, organic buckwheat, sesame seeds), organic tapioca syrup, almonds, whole ancient grain crisps (amaranth, quinoa, brown rice), pea protein isolate, vegetable glycerin, non-gmo canola oil, plum puree, water, pumpkin, chicory root, sea salt, natural flavor, baking soda, onion powder, garlic powder, citric acid, spices.
