Tried It Tuesday: Redd Superfood Energy Bars #Giveaway

I met the founders of Redd Bar at Expo East. [If you missed my jaunt to Expo East, check out my recaps (Day 1 and Day 2).] In truth, by the time I met I them, I was a bit energy barred-out. Then, I saw the sign that said, “Turns out, the difference between slacking and slaying is exactly 2.2 ounces” and I was intrigued.

This sign made me curious and willing to try another new bar!

I went over to see what the deal was. I learned that the founder, Alden, was on a tight budget in school and was also into fitness. He knew that when he ate junk, he felt like junk. He started going to a local health food store and making his own superfood concoctions. He noticed that he felt great. He started bringing his bar/mix to class and launched a dorm room business. After two years of experimenting, he joined forces with a business partner, Reed Allen. They re-branded and refined the recipes. They launched Redd (Research Enhanced Design + Development) Bar.


I love the marketing for Redd Bars! Their slogan is “All killer. No filler.” And the box affirms that “Today, you’ll be strong and brave.” Great new mantra!! These plant based, oatmeal superfood bars are high in protein, gluten free and non-GMO. They contain 11 superfoods and 23 vitamins. They include high quality ingredients that are best for performance. Redd Bars contain 36mg of natural caffeine. They are also ethically sourced.

Redd Bars come in three flavors: Chocolate, Oatmeal and Peanut Butter. The bars are dense but chewy. They’re moist, taste delicious and are not too sweet. The Chocolate is rich, but not too sweet to eat pre-run or for breakfast. In fact, I had one before the NY Marathon last weekend. Given the late race start time, I had a Peanut Butter one, too. These bars kept me full through the race – even 26 miles later. I am definitely a fan of Redd Bar. These will be in my race bag and laptop bag, as well.

You don’t have to take my word for it. Redd Bar sent me a bunch to try and share. I will send two lucky winners one of each flavor Redd Bar to try. Please use the Rafflecopter below to enter.

    At minimum a food bar has to be gluten free for me. I’d love it to have some vitamins, since I don’t supplement that much, and it’s a bonus, although not required, if it has caffeine. I like chocolate or oatmeal over peanut butter if I had a choice, and definitely oatmeal if it’s a hot (melty) day!
