Review: [Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bars]

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a good day so far. I’m typing this on Monday night and it’s been a busy day on our end! Wes is getting his 4th and 5th teeth and he has been handling it like an absolute champ. I think the key is distracting him with lots of stuff- snacks, toys, going outdoors, and a bath. Hopefully the trend continues the next few days, I’d hate to see him get too cranky over darn teeth!

I have a pretty cool snack I wanted to share with you guys today: Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bars.

What are they? Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart bars are crafted with the goodness of hemp and other tasty ingredients too. There are three different delicious flavors to choose from: vanilla, chocolate and apple cinnamon. Each 45 gram bar contains 10 grams of plant-based protein and 10 grams of omegas.

As a Sweatpink ambassador, I was given the opportunity to try out these bars and share my thoughts with you! I received 2 sample bars to try- one chocolate and one apple cinnamon. The flavors sounded pretty cool, but I was quick to flip the bars over and check out their nutrition stats and ingredients.

Yeah, they’re a bit calorie dense for a smallish bar, but they have some pretty great ingredients, protein and healthy fats! These are definitely bars I would keep in my bag or in the car in case hanger (hungry anger) ever hit.

I first tried the apple cinnamon, and thought it had a pretty good flavor. It kept me satisfied between an early light lunch and dinner and didn’t have any nasty aftertaste or cause any bloat. I stashed the chocolate bar in my purse as an emergency snack for the various events I was attending last week and it came to my rescue! The chocolate is pretty good- just short of actual chocolate, but without the guilt.

Not sorry for the leopard print bra there. ha!

I’m not really a vanilla person, so not sure if I would ever pick those up, but I love the two I received and would definitely purchase them for future use. I didn’t think I was a picky eater until it came to the whole ‘snacking’ thing and I realized I look for quality ingredients as a means to give me the proper fuel I need. Especially when I’ve got a 10 month old in tow and need to keep my energy levels up at all time.

Another factor that makes these a winner in my book? They’re Canadian made! #gocanada

  1. Thanks for this review. I actually had these in my cart at Costco last week and put them back due to the fat content (and not being sure I would like them!) Maybe I’ll try them next time.

  2. I bought these and didn’t enjoy them. I couldn’t even get my kids to eat them :/ I love Hemp Hearts but these fell short for me. Glad you like them though!
