CORE Foods Complete High Protein Meal Replacement Bar:
Product Review.

Anaheim - CA Corey Rennell, Founder of CORE Foods, went on a quest to get to the bottom of nutrition. After traveling around the world with elite athletes, living intimately with twelve tribes, and searching for basic nutritional principles, the "CORE Foods philosophy was born."

CORE Meal Replacement Bars are intended to be a full meal in a package. Consisting of a fully-balanced ratio of complex carbs, healthy fats, and lean proteins, these meals-on-the-go are intended to provide the human body with a solid 4 hours of energy.

Corey provided the "IN" show with two bars for our review. Bearing in mind that this bar IS food; and thus, perishable, we wanted to try it two ways: First, fresh from the fridge; and, second, at room temperature.

We were a panel of three; and, each of us came away from this nutrition bar amazed, pleased, and surprised. The consensus for amazement stemmed from the fact that the bar tasted just as good cold as it did being at room temperature. It has been our collective experience that if something states "keep refrigerated" it is usually because one will not like it so much if it hasn't been kept in the cold.

What pleased us? The taste. It was most refreshing. Two out of the three of us have been slowly moving away from sweeteners and processed food items while the third taste-tester isn't yet ready to give up such "Western Ways." With that said, each of us enjoyed the texture of the bar, its full-bodied, spiced flavor, and the fact that we could truly taste the ingredients we were chewing. (For the record, we tried the WARRIOR Raw Cashew & Cacao bar.)

As for the surprise, well, that came from the fact that each of us did find a sustained block of energy. Our collective block of sustained energey was four (4) hours. (Five [5] hours for yours truly, three [3] for MMitchum, and four [4] for one of our interns.)

I have tried MANY nutrional bars/replacement meal bars/energy bars and CORE Foods' Complete High Protein Meal Replacement Bar hits it out of the ballpark for the following reasons: 1) The energy provided by this bar is not a nervous energy. Instead, it is a constant, foundational energy. 2) The bar IS a meal...NOT a snack; therefore, the body is benefiting from a complete nutritional stand point. And, 3) This bar isn't only good for one body; but, it's good for the world as a whole!
