Do You Know What Vixi Stands For? Come Find Out How To Be Vixi Too!

Vixi Bar Gluten Free Power Bar

Hang tight. You are about to find out what Vixi stands for…and then you will want to be Vixi too! 

According to the VixiBar Website:

“In Latin, the word VIXI means “to live; to be alive” At VixiBar™, we believe eating natural, pure, delicious food that your body can use leads to the extraordinary ability to do… anything! … Be Vixi Today!”

Not long ago, Kate, the founder of VixiBar, sent me a package of her line of amazing protein-packed natural food bars. I was excited to try them considering I already loved her philosophy on health, nutrition, and active living and figured her bars would represent this as well.

As Kate says on her website:

“As a Fitness Consultant and athlete, I had a hard time finding a bar to eat or recommend to my clients. I wanted something with only natural & pure ingredients. It had to be GREAT TASTING, with no added sugars, free of gluten, soy and lactose, but with whey protein (non-rBGH). It hit me one morning after a classic Colorado run… and the rest is history!”

Vixi Bars are an all natural food bars that contain 12 grams of natural whey protein.

They are also gluten free, grain free, soy free, lactose free, non GMO, rich in fiber, and free from any added sugar or preservatives.

VixiBar All Natural Food Bar

Disclaimer for all of my DAIRY-Free friends here: Please note that while the bars are Lactose Free, these are NOT Dairy free. They do contain Whey Protein. 

Disclaimer for all of my NUT-free friends here: Please note that some, but not all, of the flavors do contain organic peanuts.

There are 10 different flavors to choose from:

  • Chocolate Macaroon
  • Coconut Bliss
  • Apple Crisp
  • Peanut Butter Cup
  • Peanut Butter & Jelly
  • Peppermint Patty
  • Cherry Biscotti
  • Cherry Brownie
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Peanut Butter Banana

One of my favorite things about these bars is how short the ingredient list is on each bar. There are only 5 or 6 ingredients (depending on the flavor) in each bar…and each ingredient is an actual real food that you can feel good about eating.

You can see all of the ingredients in each of the flavors on the VixiBar Product Page where you can pick which ones you want! Then you can add your favorite flavors to your Shopping Cart!

Of course, how they taste is what is most important here. After all, if they do not taste good, my family is not going to eat them.

Thank goodness my two little self-declared starving munchkins volunteered to help as testers. I swear they act as if I don’t feed them. But I do. I promise.

My oldest took one look at the flavors and made absolute sure that the Cherry Brownie, Pumpkin Pie, and Peanut Butter and Jelly flavored bars were going to be his.

My youngest, as usual, just let his older brother tell him what to do and gladly accepted the Coconut Bliss and Apple Crisp flavors.

In the end, we really shared all of the bars and we each tasted all of the flavors. The boys kept fighting over who was going to get a taste of what. And any time they started fighting over them, Mom came in and saved the day by taking the bar in question to enjoy herself.

In the end, not only did we get to try some delicious and nutritious bars, but we also got a good lesson in the importance, fun, and benefits of sharing… ;)

We loved all of the flavors that we tried, but my hands down favorite was the Coconut Bliss. I could eat that one every. single. day.

The boys, however, absolutely LOVED the:

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly
  • Cherry Brownie
  • Pumpkin Pie

And except for the few flavors that contain peanuts, the rest are actually a perfect bar to send to a nut-free school as a treat in the lunch box as well. That is a huge plus in my book.

VixiBar is on a mission to let everyone know that they can have a natural food bar with both functional benefit and great taste – a bar without compromise! I think these bars are achieving that mission for sure!
