Review: Sahale Snacks Tangerine Cashew with Vanilla & Mango Bar

20170219_171127So I was browsing iBotta this week, looking for rebates…

I started using it about 2 years ago now and so far I’ve saved $228.90 on groceries, plus I get to try some new stuff, like these Sahale Snacks Tangerine Cashew with Vanilla and Mango Bars.

No, I am not being paid to write this post. I saw that there was a rebate, and I decided to try them because TANGERINE CASHEW sounds amazing! The rebate was for $1 off at Walmart so I figured I’d try some, because HEY, A DOLLAR.

Well, there’s a downside. Even at Walmart these are $4.74 a box. Andrea is a sad panda. And not only is that expensive, it’s extra pricey because it’s for only FOUR BARS. Come on! Not only that… but they’re tiny at a mere 1.4 oz. each. 😦

So I ultimately paid $3.74 for a box of four bars, which means each bar is 94 cents. A bit steep for me.

But how do they TASTE?

20170219_171137Really, really good! You can see all the various textures of the cashews, dried mango, toasted sorghum and puffed amaranth. The texture was really nice, creamy on the bottom from the cashew butter base (I loved how it has two easily seen layers) and slightly crunchy without being sharp on the top.

20170219_171200The bar was slightly sweet, with cashew being the most dominant flavor. I could definitely taste the tangerine, but it wasn’t as strong as I expected. At first, I found this disappointing, but as I continued to eat I decided that the level was probably pretty good: any stronger and it would be cloying. There’s definitely a hint of vanilla there, too. I’d give these a 7/10: Really tasty, satisfying for their size (190 calories, btw), but not so mind blowing that I can’t live without them. If they were half the price, I’d probably purchase them regularly.

Nutrition wise they’re pretty comparable to KIND bars. This bar has 11g sugar which I honestly don’t think is too bad. No artificial flavors or colors and no preservatives give it bonus points, too, but I take off a bit for the addition of soy protein. I actually enjoyed this bar more than KIND bars BECAUSE of the creamy bottom layer. Makes for a nice mouthfeel.

I say give them a shot if they sound good to you! They have four flavors to choose from:

Which would you pick?

  1. These look good. I’d try try the Tangerine Cashew one if I saw it around. I’m a fan of the Oh Yeah! protein bars these days. They are really good. Especially the peanut butter or chocolate versions. But those run close to $2 a bar which I think is pricey. I still buy them though because they are that good and really fill me up in the afternoon when I need to get thru till dinner.
