Perfect Bars
These are protein bars crafted with nut butters - peanut butter, almond butter, and cashew butter - as the base. They are blended with organic honey for a creamy consistency. They are all gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, kosher, and Oregon Tilth Certified Organic. They come in a dozen different flavors for the full Perfect Bars and in two flavors for the Perfect Bar Minis.

  • Peanut Butter
  • Almond Butter
  • Blueberry Cashew
  • Coconut Peanut Butter
  • Maple Almond
  • Almond Acai
  • Almond Coconut
  • Carob Chip
  • Cranberry Crunch
  • Fruit & Nut
  • Dark Chocolate Almond (new)
  • Dark Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter with Sea Salt (new)
While they need to be refrigerated for longevity, I was excited to learn that they stay fresh for a week out of the fridge, so they are perfectly fine all day in the lunchbox! The Minis are only available online, but you can find the full-size bars in select retailers. Search for the nearest store here.


Our Thoughts
Through my association with Moms Meet, I received a package of Perfect Bars to try. My family tried the lot of them; I passed out sample packets to friends for their feedback. And, I brought them to picnics and playdates for even more opinions.

I have to admit: I was surprised at how polarizing they really were. Perfect Bars received perfectly mixed reviews from my crew of taste-testers. Here are some of the comments and photos...

"A bit chalky, but interesting blueberry bursts of flavor."

"The perfect amount of peanut butter and a touch of coconut in every bite!"

"A great post workout snack, rich with peanut butter and just a tad sweet!"

One of my sons tried a few flavors, but groaned when he saw them in his lunchbox. "Mom," he complained, "no one likes these." What do you mean 'no one'? "Well, I let some friends try them at school...and we all think it's just like eating peanut butter. Really, really sweet peanut butter." So, he wasn't a fan and, apparently, neither were his friends. I did hear from one of the moms the same complaint from her daughter - they are too peanut-y!


My other son liked it for that exact same reason. "It's like when I was little and you just gave me a spoonful of peanut butter as a snack!" 

A friend sent me this message: "We did like the almond ones, fairly unanimously, and the rest were 'meh,' also unanimously." 


My husband was in that same camp; he preferred the almond butter ones. And, while I am not a huge fan of bars, it's usually because they are just too sweet. Perfect Bars are sweet, but not cloyingly so. I enjoyed the Blueberry Cashew, but preferred the almond butter minis for their more savory taste and their size. So, I will continue to buy the ones we liked and skip the varieties that were simply 'meh.'

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
