Kylan from Rise then mailed me a bright, spirit lifting (on that cold winters day), happy box full of their breakfast, energy and protein bars. The flavors inside were so original, and I couldn't wait to try them out! Although I received some bars to try, I was not compensated for this post.
Each bar has something unique to offer in taste and texture. Rise prides themselves on simple, wholesome ingredients, so you know exactly what you are eating.
Breakfast bars are a great snack to get you going on those busy mornings. I am a major sweet tooth, and the macadamia pineapple was my favorite, but it was not overly sweet for those who are not as sugar obsessed as I am. Each bar has a great combination of chewy, crunchy flavor. If you like crunch, the cashew almond was wonderful too!
Protein bars come in flavors like lemon cashew and honey almond. With 15-20grams of protein, over 20grams of carbohydrates and sweetened only with natural ingredients these are the perfect post workout snack to deliver the vital nutrition needed to start the recovery process.
Energy bars came in very handy for me as I need to eat something every few hours with my high volume training. When I needed a pick me up, I reached for a Rise Energy bar to keep me going till I could get something more substantial.

Is it really all positive?
As much as I love the company, and I loved the products, there were a few things that I considered downsides
- It can be difficult to determine minor differences in flavors between some of the bars. I was expecting more of a powerful flavor punch from some of the exotic flavors, but I am not sure I would be able to guess the flavors given a blind taste test.
- To enjoy Rise bars, you must like chewy! Almost all of their bars were chewy, in a way that is similar to oatmeal raisin cookies. That was fine for me, but if you are looking for bars with a lot of crunch, these are not for you.
- The carob chip protein bar was not my favorite; it was almost bitter tasting. I know protein bars are not known for their flavor, but I would have liked a little more flavor. I do like carob, but I couldn't really taste the carob at all.
Okay, now for the best part! Rise is offering one lucky winner the opportunity to win a sample box containing one of each flavor! This Giveaway ends Sunday March 2, at 11:59pm. Good Luck!
