A friend of mine gave me a box of these bars to try a few months ago.  I was excited because there are two things I adore in this world: chocolate & coconut.  This bar has both!  Besides the great taste, I was amazed at how nutritious those bar actually felt feeding my body.

After eating, I didn't have a sugar overload like other “energy bars.” These Cocoa Cassava Bars are the fuel to feed your body natural goodness, quick easy – and with chocolate and coconut!

Check the ingredients listed on the back of your energy bar for high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, gluten, preservatives, and soy proteins. If your bar contains any of these health bombs, toss it in the trash — now.

Why do you even need these bars?

Well, I know you probably lead a very busy life, and can't always sit down to enjoy a healthy and relaxing meal.

And for a variety of reasons, you may be inclined to buy and eat one of the many meal replacement or protein bars on the market:

  • You need something quick and convenient. Perhaps you're late for work and you haven't had breakfast
  • Or it's mid-afternoon, your energy is flagging and you need a fast pick-me-up
  • Or you need to lose a few pounds and substituting a healthy bar for an unhealthy meal sounds smart
  • Perhaps you want to exercise but haven't eaten in hours. Your stomach may be growling and a granola bar sounds healthier than a candy bar or other sugary snack

I understand, but here's the problem.

With so many of these energy bars available on the market today, it can be hard to determine which bar is good for you. What's more, many of these bars are so loaded with less-than-optimal fats and loads of sugar that they aren't any better than eating a candy bar.

Your confusion over knowing which bar to select is not your fault.

The marketing of these bars is very intentional and very slick. In fact, the industry spends millions of dollars to advertise these bars every year.

Now, in a perfect world, I would advise you to forget all about these bars and just stick with healthy foods. That's still the best policy to follow most of the time.

But it's not always practical-or realistic.

The good news is I have found a bar that is filling, nutritious and delicious!

Since their introduction, our new CocoaCassava™ Bars have become one of the most popular products offered on Mercola.com-and for many good reasons.

For starters, unlike so many of these other bars, our CocoaCassava™ Bars are loaded with a smart balance of healthy protein, fats and fiber that truly promotes optimal health.

How Do CocoaCassava™ Bars Stack Up Against
Other “Energy” Bars?

My team and I have been researching this market for quite a few years, but I've never been totally satisfied with the bars on the market. So I decided to take the road less traveled-and formulate my own bar.

I brought in one of the world's top biochemists. We spent tens of thousands of dollars on research in developing an energy bar that is a nutritional powerhouse!

Knowing you would be as discriminating as I am, I demanded that the bar fit the following requirements:

  • Great taste, otherwise you wouldn't eat it
  • All-natural ingredients
  • No preservatives or stabilizers
  • Unrefined sugars to support blood glucose health and promote sustained energy
  • Smarter fats, with no trans fats
  • Fiber for the healthy support of your digestive system
  • Consistent with the precepts in the Take Control of Your Health program
  • Excellent value
It hasn't been an easy task. It has taken a full year of detailed research to develop our nutritious, delicious CocoaCassava™ Bars. In fact, we had to change the formula 16 times to create what we truly believe is themost health-promoting and best tasting bar on the market today!

I made sure that our CocoaCassava™ Bars supply you with REAL nutritional value and real taste.

And now you can discover the new CocoaCassava™ Barfound only at Mercola.com-the quick, convenient and health-promoting solution for busy people like you and me.

The CocoaCassava™ Bar is a nutritious choice with a perfect balance of smarter fats, protein and fiber that will truly nourish your body and support your health — Plus it tastes delicious!

All-Natural Ingredients Make Our CocoaCassava™ Bars Delicious, While Promoting Good Health

Why are our CocoaCassava™ Bars so delicious?

Because we use the finest natural ingredients, including Proserum®, the highest quality native whey protein from raw milk. And of course, you'll get incredible taste from the rich dark chocolate in these bars.

Plus, you'll find that coconut oil and shredded coconut add a delicious tropical flair, while enhancing the texture and fiber content. In fact, to ensure you receive the highest quality available, CocoaCassava™ Bars use the very same Fresh Shores Coconut Oil sold at Mercola.com.

And now, we've taken it a step further, and enhanced these already-great bars. Since the chia seeds we used occasionally became lodged between the teeth, we've now replaced them with ground flaxseed — to eliminate this mild potential annoyance.

Chia seeds are highly nutritious, but all-natural flaxseeds are also quite remarkable… and provide you with many health-promoting benefits:

  • Supports your immune system, with a high concentration of omega-3s
  • Helps reinforce your digestive tract with a smart fiber boost
  • Promotes healthy hormone levels because of a high concentration of lignans

All this without sacrificing the amazing taste of our original CocoaCassava™ Bar.

What You Won't Find in Our CocoaCassava™ Bars

Just as important as what you will find in the new CocoaCassava™ Bars is what you won't find in them:

You won't find any gluten, which is a highly allergenic substance for many people with sensitivities.

Instead, you'll find natural cassava flour in our bars. Cassava, or manioc root, is an edible starch and a major source of carbohydrates. Cassava has been used as a major staple food for many South American tribes, since Pre-Columbian times.

Besides being less allergenic, cassava flour is also much more nutritious than wheat flour, which has typically been refined, bleached and stripped of nutrients.

You won't find any high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). This chemically-converted, non-natural, corn-based sweetener can have negative effects on health. Fructose is metabolized to fat more than other sugars, making it clearly fat-promoting.

But you won't have to worry about this in our CocoaCassava™ Bars, because they don't contain high fructose corn syrup.

You won't find toxic artificial sweeteners like sucralose, Nutrasweet or aspartame.

Our CocoaCassava™ Bars contain specially-chosen, longer-lasting natural and unrefined sweetener sources. This means that the sugars in our CocoaCassava™ Bars metabolize more slowly and evenly into blood glucose for sustained energy.

You won't find problematic soy proteins. Most food and energy bars contain soy proteins. And today's cheap soy protein, much of which can be waste products of the soy oil industry, is often over-processed with high heat that destroys the inherent nutritional value of the protein and can produce toxins, such as nitrates and monosodium glutamate (MSG).

That's why we use Proserum®, the highest quality native whey protein. The tiny bit of soy that we do use, soy lecithin, is from organic non-genetically modified soy.

You won't find any monosodium glutamate. MSG, or glutamic acid, is often used as a flavor enhancer, despite the possible adverse reactions associated with it. There is no MSG in our bars.

You won't find any nuts, genetically modified ingredients, polyunsaturated oils or preservatives in our CocoaCassava™ Bar either.

What you will find is a satisfying and delicious bar that is filling and nutritious!

If You Are A Chocolate Lover, Don't Worry, I Kept You in Mind

There were two reasons why we added a high quality, natural-source dark chocolate to the CocoaCassava™ Bar. The first was taste! I think you will find them not only healthy for you, but they taste delicious, too!

However, taste was not the only reason for including chocolate in our CocoaCassava™ Bars. Aside from our desire to have you savor the delectable taste and aroma of the high-quality chocolate in our bars, you can derive good nutritional benefits by eating chocolate in moderation.

Chocolate has been shown to be relatively high in antioxidants, which fight free radicals that damage body tissues*. And dark chocolate not only contains these high antioxidants, but the polyphenols in dark chocolate may also support good blood pressure health and insulin health*.

So Take the “Taste Test” Challenge!

Right now, I'd like to challenge you to compare our CocoaCassava™ Bar to any other bar on the market-Pria Bars, Clif Bars, Power Bars, or any of the hundreds of bars out there.

Do your own “taste test.” Compare them for taste. Compare them side-by-side for their real (not just slickly marketed) health-promoting benefits. I am convinced that once you try them, you will love these CocoaCassava™ Bars as much as I do.

Each box of 12 nutritious and delicious CocoaCassava™ Bars retails for just $36.97, which amounts to just about $3.00 each. (These nutritious bars are available in an economical box quantity only.)

When you add up all the valuable nutrients in each of our bars, this is truly one of the best health bargains you'll ever find.

And when you compare the cost of this nutritionally-sound food bar to the cost of even a quick meal at a restaurant (or one of those less-than-healthy coffee lattes), you can easily see the real value.
