Oh, I had such high hopes for PureFit. They were so nice in their e-mails, in their letter to me, and in the publicity papers they sent. Poor Robb Dorf spent the last six years creating this formula, and if it was good, he could have found no better cheerleader than he found in me. My family was excited too! We were going to get free bars that marketed themselves as tasting like candy bars with the nutrition of energy bars. What's not to like?
Well, it turns out, PureFit is not to like. Sniff, my three-year-old, JK, was the only one who ate all his samples without complaint. Please see the photos and further explanation below.
Here are the bars, unopened, being desired by all of us. The flavors from top to bottom are: Berry Almond Crunch, Granola Crunch, Almond Crunch, Chocolate Brownie, and Peanut Butter Crunch. Look at how they beckon to us!
So, here's a basic rundown:
None of them had any real crunch to them. They were very chewy and made us all very thirsty. I think if you were on a trail, you would need to have water handy at all times while eating these.
Here are some random honest comments from my family - I apologize to PureFit in advance:
To be nice, because really I am, I am ending on some good notes:
Please know that I did not solicit them. I am not in the habit of reviewing, but these sounded so promising. I wish PureFit the best, I really do. But, if they want an honest last word from me - don't sacrifice flavor for health. Let me know if you work on the formula, and I'd be more than happy to do a retest and hopefully a positive review.
