GoodOnYa Bar Review & Promo Code!




I was SO excited when the wonderful people at the GoodOnYa bar company decided to send me some samples for review!  I recently found this company online & it just sounded so neat!  (And, come on, is that not the COOLEST name you've ever heard!)  ;)  As a mom who is still trying to lose weight (20 months after the birth of my child! - UGH!) - I'm always looking for healthier things to eat.  The GoodOnYa bars are DEFINITELY healthy!
As Kristen Buchanan, the founder of Good On Ya, says on her website...
 "I founded this company in 2001 after playing field hockey for the US National Team for 11 years. As an Olympic athlete healthy food was obviously a big part of my life. But back then, as an athlete, I equated being skinny and fit with health. Sure exercise is a big part of it, but in my quest for gold (and coming in 5th) I trashed my adrenals, joints, muscles and ended up with a full blown auto immune disease of the thyroid. A low fat, high carb diet is what we thought was healthy. And lots of energy drinks with food colorings, synthetic salts and sugar. (yeah, a LOT of sugar)... I often say “it’s not just about selling bars for us”, and it isn’t. If it was we would have made a very different bar. One that could retail for .99 and we’d source the cheapest ingredients, add a boat load of sugar to make it taste ok and market the heck out of it.That’s just not who we are."






Good On Ya prides themselves on using quality, organic ingredients, such as: 100% Organic Sprouted Flax, 100% Organic Raw Brazil Nuts, Organic Dark Chocolate, Celtic Sea Salt, and Organic Valencia Peanut Butter, just to name a few.

All of their bars are Dairy Free, Soy Free, GMO Free, and GLUTEN FREE!!!  Yes, all of my friends on gluten-free diets, you heard that right!!!  WooHoo! 

They have 4 yummy flavors: The Breakfast Bar, Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate, Peanut Butter Honey, and Superhero.  I got to taste the first three...
Yes, that's right, the Breakfast Bar's package is ripped.
I did that.  I just COULDN'T WAIT to try one of these babies!

Breakfast Bar Ingredients: 100% Organic Sprouted Flax, 100% Pure Organic Maple Syrup, 100% Organic Raw Hemp Seeds, 100% Organic Raisins, 100% Organic Raw Sunflower Seeds, 100% Organic Raw Brazil Nuts, 100% Organic Unfiltered Olive Oil, Organic Dark Chocolate, Celtic Sea Salt, 100% Organic Pure Ground Vanilla Pods

Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Ingredients: Organic Valencia Peanut Butter, 100% Organic Raw Honey, 100% Organic Sprouted Flax, 100% Organic Raw Sesame Seeds, 100% Organic Raw Hemp Seeds, Organic Dark Chocolate, Celtic Sea Salt, 100% Organic Pure Ground Vanilla Pods

Peanut Butter Honey Ingredients: Organic Valencia Peanut Butter, 100% Organic Raw Honey, 100% Organic Sprouted Flax, 100% Organic Raw Sesame Seeds, 100% Organic Raw Hemp Seeds, Celtic Sea Salt, 100% Organic Pure Ground Vanilla Pods

Here's a picture of the Breakfast Bar - missing a few bites. ;)
You can really see all the yummy ingredients -
the raisins and seeds, etc.


I have to say, I thought the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Bar would be my favorite.  After all, I am a chocoholic!  But I was actually surprised by the Peanut Butter Honey Bar!  Don't get me wrong, the Peanut Butter Chocolate and Breakfast Bars are both good too!  But my FAVORITE was definitely the Peanut Butter Honey!  The nuttiness of the peanut butter and sesame seeds, the sweetness of the honey and vanilla, and the saltiness from the sea salt just gave this bar the perfect combination of salty and sweet, crunchy and chewy!  I saved the rest of that bar for tomorrow morning's breakfast, but I gotta tell you, I'm not sure its gonna last until then.  ;)  (My hubby tasted all the bars as well, and he was in agreement with me - the Peanut Butter Honey is the yummiest!) ;)
