Barnana

Love bananas?  Then it’s time to try Barnana’s chewy banana bites.  Barnana dehydrates organic, bite-sized pieces of bananas to create a vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free snack.  The best part is that bananas have a ton of health benefits — they are high in fiber and potassium, protect against muscle cramps, and aid in digestion.   To learn more about the benefits of eating bananas, check out the link below:

The ingredient list for Original Barnanas simply reads: “Organic Bananas.”  Each Original piece is chewy and sweet– the natural banana sugars slightly concentrated from the dehydration process.  They’re perfect for a snack any time of day.  Remember that the browning of the pieces is natural.  After all, Barnana doesn’t use preservatives or chemicals to artificially keep the bites yellow!

Barnana takes it up a notch by dunking the Original Barnana in chocolate.   Chocolate + banana = bliss.  I would venture to say it is impossible to eat just one of these bites.  In fact, the bag pictured is actually the SECOND bag I purchased.  My boyfriend ate the first bag, before I could take photos!

I’m not the only one impressed with the Chocolate Barnanas.  In 2012, VegNews listed the chocolate bites in their “This Week’s Must-Have” section stating they would “make the perfect addition to any backpacking snack pack or campfire menu.”  For the full review, click on the link below:
