VavaVida Presents: Equal Exchange Geo Bars
A delicious fair trade cereal bar
Our Equal Exchange Geobars are made with fair trade practices. These little but filling bars are packing a punch by incorporating ingredients from around the world. With apricots from Pakistan, honey from Chile, rice from Thailand, raisins from South Africa and sugar from Zambia, you will be simultaneously satisfying your hunger and helping small farmers.
What I love
I took these bars on a camping trip to Palomar Mt. and they were a lifesaver. Camping food can get a little bland when you are surviving on trail mix and granola bars. However, these bars mix up the flavor and keep things interesting.
What is is sweet is the price. They are sold in a pack of 6 for $5.96, putting it at about $1 per bar.
What you might not love
While I personally think these bars are filling, they are a little on the small side. This is no giant-sized Power Bar if that is what you are looking for. However, their little size makes both the apricot bar and the chocolate raisin bar only 120 calories each!
Snacking for good
It is not just the big donations of the fabulously wealthy that are changing the world, it is our everyday buying decisions. We have the opportunity as consumers to make a difference in the lives of people we will never meet, just by having good shopping habits. Switching your current favorite snack for a fair trade option puts us one step closer to a better global community.
