I had to think for a while prior to writing this entry. How should I tackle the subject matter at hand? The product I am reviewing is not so unusual in itself but the name is extremely unique and conjures up certain… ahem, imagery. But I certainly didn’t want to be juvenile or crass.
I decided to take the mature and classy route as I talk to you today about the Bowel Benefit Bar. Let’s not make a scene.
I was strolling through a health food store recently when a delightful piece of alliteration hit me straight between the eyes. I snatched up the Bowel Benefit Bar and marveled at its snappy name and retro packaging. For a moment, I thought it was a product from a bygone era that had been sitting on the dusty shelf since the 70’s. To my delight, I discovered a current use-by-date AND a little word reading ‘vegan’ on the label. Jackpot!
The bar was sweet, nutty and chewy. It featured a mix of sultanas, apricots, prebiotic inulin, banana, oatbran, pineapple, coconut and sunflower oil. It was an enjoyable and tasty snack in the style of space bars. The company website states the bar will assist with ‘sluggish bowels’. I will spare readers the results following my BBB consumption. Instead, I will simply announce that I believe the company is not guilty of false advertising… you do the Math.
