Product Review: Rise Energy+ Bar

Product Name: Rise Bar

Product Flavors (Energy+ Line): Blueberry Coconut, Apricot Goji, Coconut Acai, Cherry Almond, Raspberry Pomegranate


About Rise Bar: The line of bars formerly known as Prana/Boomi recently underwent a rebrand! The revamped Rise Bars are made from antioxidant-rich fruits and nutrient-dense nuts to create a wholesome, convenient snack option.

Although Rise Bar makes three product lines, we reviewed only the vegan, Energy+ flavors. The Energy+ line is designed to provide a unique combination of quick and sustained energy. Each of the five flavors has a short list of ingredients, including different combinations of dried fruit, nuts and brown rice/tapioca syrup. This line of bars is also:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten-free
  • 100% organic
  • Non-GMO
  • Peanut, soy and dairy-free
  • Preservative-free
  • Kosher

The One Green Planet Verdict: Although the five bars in this line have a relatively similar list of ingredients, they actually vary quite a bit in taste and texture! Of the bars, our three favorites were:

  1. Blueberry Coconut – This bar has a moist, chewy texture and an amazing (and sweet) coconut flavor. Definitely the best of the bunch!
  2. Apricot Goji – This bar also has a moist, chewy texture and a pleasant, mild cashew flavor. The cashews give it a nice crunch.
  3. Coconut Acai – This bar has a very mild flavor (without a strong coconut presence) and a nice crunch from the almonds and amaranth.


You know our verdict, now we need yours! The good people at Rise Bar have generously offered to send a few lucky One Green Planet readers all 5 energy+ bar flavors right to their door step!
