The first time that I tried Wild Zora bars, I was at the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference in Denver. There were many booths set up around a large conference room. When I saw the Wild Zora booth, I was intrigued by the distinct flavors of their bars. I was given a sample and tried it later that evening. I enjoyed the taste so much that I went back the next day to share my enthusiasm with co-founder, Joshua Tabin.
The unique flavors and texture is what I think makes these bar stand out. They are soft instead of a hard, chewy texture that I often find in meat bars. The Wild Zora bars also have really distinct flavors that taste fresh and more wholesome than any other bars I’ve had. I also appreciate that they don’t have that strong meat taste, but instead have original flavors and ingredients.
The first one I ever tried was the Mediterranean Lamb. I loved tasting not just the lamb, but the spinach, rosemary, and turmeric as well. For us allergic reactors, it can be challenging to find foods that are safe and flavorful. I grew up eating some very bland foods whenever we would go out to eat, which is why I was so happily shocked by these bars. All of the flavors pop out in a very tasteful way.
This summer when I was traveling in Europe, Wild Zora supplied me with some samples of their new flavors to try. Since they are my favorite meat and veggie bars, I was thrilled to bring them along! I ate them in front of a palace in Oslo, fishing boats in Bergen, Norway and as a beach snack in Italy. I tried flavors like Apple Pork with rosemary, parsley, sage, and thyme and Parmesan Beef with tomato, basil, and kale. There wasn’t one flavor that I didn’t enjoy. I love good food and to be able to find something good that I can take on the go is amazing!
As someone who was also fortunate enough to be raised on organic foods, I appreciate that they are:
- Free from artificial ingredients, MSG, chemical additives, and added sugar or sweeteners
- Made of certified-organic veggies
- Allergen friendly with no grains, gluten, soy, peanuts, and tree nuts (and some are milk free)
- Made with free-range turkey, 100% natural lamb and grass-fed beef
Since then, I have found them locally at Cambridge Naturals in Cambridge, MA. A surprising discovery that has become a favorite special treat when I need some protein on the go.
