Day 2 is almost over and I'm going to end it on a high note! I love food and most of you readers know that about me by now...just look at my past giveaways! I most especially love healthy, delicious, organic food! Here's another very delicious review and giveaway sponsored by Tram Bars, soon to be known as Kate's Real Food! This is an energy bar that is made with REAL, TASTY FOOD.
Once upon a time, in the early 90’s, Kate Schade began making her own food bars for skiing at the Jackson Hole Ski Resort. Stopping to buy lunch is not an option for the ski bum lifestyle. So, while waiting in long Tram lines, she would pull out her own lunch options (the Tram Bar) from her jacket pockets. Word spread and Kate's Tram Bars sparked interest among Jackson Hole locals. Through repeated coaxing from friends and farm workers, they are finally hitting the shelves of outdoor and health food stores around the US.
Tram Bars provide the ultimate taste and satisfaction available in an energy bar. Made with all natural and organic ingredients, Tram Bars mix different textures and flavors to make every mouth and body happy. Tram Bars are the only fuel you’ll need/want on the slopes and trails. The combination of protein, carbs and fats sustains and satiates the body and mind for hours, whether it be climbing a mountain, having a snack, breakfast (goes great with coffee!), or waiting in the Tram line!
I'm a huge snacker...in fact, I bet I snack all day. I'm one of those always on the go people who needs food...it's my energy source. I know I mentioned in a previous post that I'd like to be put on the 'on-the-go' designated list but it's true! I'd love to just take a year off from running around from place to place. Since I can't afford to do this yet, I'll enjoy my crazy, on-the-go lifestyle with some awesome snack bars to keep me going!
I can recall my first bite of a Tram Bar. A good friend of mine had gone on a two week road trip to the Grand Tetons National Park and he returned with a bag full of goodies for me. I dumped it all out on the floor and saw this thick 3oz bar all by itself off to the side of the stuff. I turned the bar over, looked at the ingredients, ripped it open, and sank back into the bean bag I was sitting in...ahh, a meal in my mouth. It was amazing and delicious and organic and healthy! Everything I look for in a snack!
I remember it so vividly because the bar had literally filled me up within a few minutes of eating it! It was great! The mixture of the oats, honey, peanut butter, chocolate, and various dried fruits were perfect. I could taste every single flavor (sweet, salty, fruity, chewy, and crispy) with every single bite. Kate is right when she says that 'no two bites are the same'!
As I said above, the Tram Bar is only 3 ounces. One Tram Bar has 360 calories, 16g of fat, 49g of carbohydrates and 8g of protein. This bar packs a punch and gives you enough natural energy to finish your marathon, climb up the mountain, ski down the slopes, or get you through your busy day. You can easily incorporate the Tram Bar into whatever type of lifestyle you choose. Tram Bar would prefer it to be an outdoor lifestyle. Get outside and play...but don't forget to bring along your Tram Bar!
Currently, there are three different Tram Bars (The Original Tram Bar, Caz Bar, and Grizzly Bar). The Tram Bar and the Grizzly Bar are the same...the Grizzly Bar is marketed to a more general outdoor-loving audience. The Caz Bar is a mixture of dark chocolate and coconut spice flavor. This is one I'd love to find in my local coffeehouse!
