Updated R.E.D.D. Bar Review

Reformulated with Less Sugar and More Taste for an All-round Great Plant-Based Bar

REDD Bar has always been one of my favorite bar brands, but now that they are reformulated with less sugar, no caffeine (so my kids can have them), and tastier than ever – my family and I just can’t get enough!

For Moms, Moms-to-be & Children 18-Months+*


For those familiar with RE.D.D. Bar, they have not only changed their formulation, but they have also changed what the acronym stands for Radiant Energy Deliciously Delivered. What used to be a mix between a Protein Bar + Energy Shot + Multi-Vitamin (as can be read in my original R.e.d.d. Review), is now an even tastier and healthier version (thanks to less sugar), that kids and adults can enjoy!

With a semi-firm texture and a taste that mimics exactly what the flavor says (ie, the Mint Chocolate flavor couldn’t taste any more like a grasshopper shake!), you’ll be amazed to learn that all of their products are plant-based, contain very low amounts of sugar, and have a nice helping of protein and fiber to boot!

Available in Chocolate, Oatmeal, Peanut Butter, Mint Chocolate, and Salted Caramel, these bars will leave both your belly and taste buds satisfied no matter what kind of treat you’re in the mood for!

With roughly 10g of Protein, numerous Superfoods, Vitamins + Minerals, as well 7g of Fiber and only 3-5g of Sugar, you can be sure you are doing something good for your body when you eat R.E.D.D.

Certified Gluten-Free, and containing numerous Organic and non-GMO Project Verified ingredients, all of their products are also Kosher, Vegan, Soy Free and Brown Rice Syrup Free (since Brown Rice is said to contain arsenic). In fact, they are sweetened with a mix of Dates and Monk Fruit, which is why they taste so decadent without all of the sugar grams! R.E.D.D. also added a healthy dose of Adaptogenic Mushrooms to their products, giving them the maximum amount of nutritional oomph that a snack this size can get!

*Filled with good-for-you ingredients, R.E.D.D Bars are great for children and adults alike. And now that they contain a very minimal amount of sugar and have taken out the addition of caffeine entirely, I can feel good about recommending these to kids, even as young as 18-months. However, since they do taste sweet, I recommend these be considered a “treat” for very young children as it is most important to fill their bellies (and taste-buds) with vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, and leave sweet treat tasting snacks as an occasional indulgence.


Here's how it happened, according to Founder, Alden:

“My college meal plan wasn’t cutting it. I burned through it in the first few weeks of the semester. After that, finding good alternatives was tough. I could’ve probably gotten by on chips but, to me, food is really important. It affects you, mentally and physically. Eat crap, feel like crap. Eventually, I found my way to a local health food store.

“I didn’t have much time or money so I wasn’t looking for anything fancy. I hit the bulk foods section and mixed a bunch of inexpensive, nutritionally dense ingredients into a big bag. The concoction — and trust me, it really was a concoction — not only sustained me, it gave me a serious and sustained energy boost.

“I started carrying my new energy “bar-ish” thing to classes. Much curiosity ensued which quickly became a budding, dorm room business. It beat selling pot. Anyway, that’s how the predecessor to Redd was born. I called it “Rawgasms” and it literally started out of my backpack (we had to change the name eventually…). At first, my goal was just to offer my fellow broke students a healthy, affordable alternative to whatever junk food they were eating to supplement the school meal plan. But then, you know…

“After two years of serious grassroots success and a ton of feedback, I hooked up with designer and health food enthusiast Reed Allen. Together, we re-branded, refined, re-designed, etc, etc… I doubled down on my initial commitment to the highest quality, all natural ingredients and, in June of 2014, we released our first product: Chocolate Brownie by Redd. The rest, as they say, is history.”

The first time my husband tried one of the bars from R.E.D.D. he commented on how good they were and that they taste like the bars that I make. Which is exactly what I want in a bar! Healthy for you yet super enjoyable to eat is what I strive for every day and is why I often make most foods myself. However, I don’t always have time for this and will often want something that I can eat while rushing out the door – and is why I love when I can find a good bar!

Made with all the ingredients I love minus the ones I don’t, R.E.D.D. really is a high-quality bar that will allow you to feel good about what you’re eating! Filled with protein, healthy fats and a big dose of superfoods, you can’t go wrong when you go R.E.D.D.! Don’t believe me? Use my coupon code ~ jessica15 ~ for 15% OFF your ENTIRE order and tell me you don’t love these as much as I do! Because it’s those small steps that make healthy living a lifestyle, so why not take one today?!
