Made in China

If these bars are made in China, do we really know what is in them? These bars are high in sugar and hard as a rock. Chinese edibles have already poisoned babies and pets. I’m not taking a risk with my family. Why doesn’t Amazon disclose country of manufacture? Why doesn’t the company disclose country of manufacture on their website? Shame on Mrs Mays.

My child had an allergic reaction.

They were giving away samples at Costco. My daughter is 5 and has never had a nut allergy but she did with this product. So even though she doesn’t have a peanut allergy, she must be allergic to one of the other nuts in this bar. It started with major stomach pains then she started itching and got a HORRIBLE rash all over her body. Then her breathing sounded as if she was having an asthma attack (which she doesn’t have asthma but that’s what it sounded like). Luckily I realized it before she went to bed and gave her some benedryl but it was a very scary moment for us.

Please avoid this product since it is made in outside US. It is not a toy like we avoid because of possibilities of lead content. Thios is real food and imagine if there could be possibility of lead????????????

Made in China?

My brother had told me about these bars so I went on to Amazon to order them, I totally love the flavor but when my sister told me they were made in China I about died. I called my brother to tell him and he said “well that is it for Mrs. Mays” I totally agree. Can’t believe we can’t get almonds, blueberries etc. here in the good USA. Will not buy again.

These are my favorite snack bars!

Mrs. May’s Trio bars are my favorite snack/energy bars. I love them. They come in four flavors. Blueberry is my favorite of those flavors; the blueberry ones seem a little sweeter but the sugars content is the same so it may just be because I like the blueberry flavor.

The name comes from the ingredients. The bars have a trio of trios: 3 nuts, 3 seeds and 3 fruits. The nuts, seeds and 2 of the fruits are the same in all the flavors. The nuts are cashews, almonds & pistachios. The seeds are sesame, pumpkin, & sunflower. The two fruits that are in all the flavors are dates and raisins, but you don’t really see or taste them so I wonder if they are cooked down into the “glue” that holds all the other ingredients together. Dried blueberries are the third fruit in the blueberry flavor. The only other ingredients are rice malt, natural flavors, cane juice and sea salt.

These are great bars for anyone who has issues with wheat or dairy. The label says they are wheat free, gluten free, dairy free and kosher. They also have no preservatives. If you have peanut allergies, the label says they are packaged in a peanut free facility that processes other nuts.

Because of the nuts, they have 12 grams of fat per bar, but I’ve been reading articles that say nuts are a great snack and the fat in nuts is “good” fat. The label says there is 1.5 grams of saturated fat which surprised me but I guess some of the fat in nuts must be saturated. To round out the rest of the nutrition facts: calories, 170; total carbs, 15g; dietary fiber, 2g; sugars, 6g; protein, 5g; cholesterol, 0g; trans fat, 0g; and sodium, 45mg.

I love the nuts and seeds and the bars don’t have the mealy texture that a lot of energy/snack bars have. They are low sodium but high in taste and they are really satisfying. I used to get granola bars but these are so much better.

WAY overpriced – Deceptive Description

I love all natural or organic products that are good for you. This Mrs. Mays Trio Blueberry product seemed to be such a product. The taste is good. I like the combination of berries, seeds, and nuts. But when I received the product, the image shown on the webpage description is not the same as the product I received.

The actual product is VERY small — only 1.2 ounces. About twice the size of a 5-stick pack of gum. Certainly NOT worth about a dollar each! In fact, it is not worth even 50 cents each, in my opinion. The image on the website shows a 1.7 ounce bar. What I received was 1.2 ounce bars. That’s about 30 PERCENT smaller than the advertised product.

Needless to say, I was not happy at all. I was deceived. I do not believe a 1.2 ounce bar of nuts is worth close to $1 in cost. Although I like the taste and nutrition, I would not consider purchasing this item again unless the cost falls to around $5 for a 12-pack or $10 for a 24 pack. That’s about the most I can justify paying for what you get. Right now, the price at amazon.com is $23.57 for a 24 pack — or about $1 per small 1.2 ounce bar. Outrageous.

Do Your Homework

A friend of mine knows that I like to watch what I eat as far as the chemicals and un-necessary processing so she turned me on to these bars. First let me say, they are awesome. They have next to no processing, ZERO chemicals, and are very tastey. Yes, they are hard. What do you expect?? They’re nuts!!! Nuts are hard!!! The little pieces of the dried fruit they put in add a little sweetness but, they’re still nuts and therefore crunchy. It’s just like putting a handful of almonds in your mouth.

In regards to the fat content, any health related magazine, doctor, and/or website will tell you that some of the ABSOLUTE best items to eat to help weight management and a live a healthy lifestyle are nuts and seeds. They contain all of the good fat that you’re body needs while hopefully, helping you stay away from the man-created/altered fats that destroy our cholestrol, hearts and general well-being. Just like coconut, high in fat, but one the best things you could possibly put into your body. Remember, everything in moderation.

In regards to the size, yes they’re small. They are not a meal replacement bar but it is a decent amount of protein and good fats to satisfy you for a few hours until you can sit down and enjoy a healthy dinner. While I try to eat 5 small meals a day, in my line of work, it’s just not possible so I snack on one of these during the times I just can’t have a decent meal and they get me through. And have you checked out the price of nuts lately???? Any good raw nut costs upwards of $6.00lb, I’ve seen some as high as $18.00lb. So, to have this bar prepared, shipped packaged and sold for about a $1.00 (just buy them in bulk, Costco is even cheaper) seems like a good deal to me.

In regards to manufacturing, while I do wish they were put together closer to home, first and foremost, they are a business. They have to watch their bottom line just like any of us. If you do your research you will find that very few of the ingredients come from China (only some seeds and rice malt, I believe because they can’t get them anywhere else). Most of the ingredients come from the US then are shipped to China for manufacturing in a facility built specifically for Mrs. Mays. Think about it. If you can pay the same amount and have either 20 people or 1 person do a job, and those 20 people are being paid a good wage in their country, which makes more business sense. Now, I don’t like it, but I can understand it. Considering labor costs in this country, imagaine how much these bars would cost if manufactured here? And given the issues coming out of China recently, do you really think anyone manufacturing there would risk doing anything less than spectacular??? Not if they want to stay in business.
Check out their website for their safety and health inspection related info.

What it boils down to is this, if you want a great little, portable, and extremely healthy snack and you’re nuts about nuts, then you will love these bars. Do we all wish they were made in the US, sure. But barring that, they are a great product for any health conscious individual as well as vegetarians and vegans alike. Like I said earlier, they’re awesome!!

lots of pluses one big minus for me

Best tasting energy bar I’ve had, nutritious and filling so great for diet and bodybuilding but made in CHina.

Just what I expected

I was thrilled to get these bars at a great price. They are very healthy for you and taste great! The texture is pretty TOUGH though – not soft and gooey like other bars. My two year old daughter eats them and loves them – though it takes her awhile to get through it because of the texture. I think the pretty packaging helps her want to eat it 😉

Very Good!

We like these Mrs. May’s Trio Natural Bars. These are a little on the chewy, sticky side, so beware, if you have dental problems (chew carefully). Packaged in an almost indestructible cello package. The ingredients are as follows: Cashews, Almonds, Pistachios, Blueberries, Sesame Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Dates, Raisins, Rice Malt, Natural Flavors, Cane Juice, Sea Salt. That’s it! There are 24 bars in a 28.8 oz or 840 gram box. Each bar is 1.2 oz or 35 grams. The box says: vegan/no trans fat/no additives/no preservatives/no cholesterol/gluten free/diary free/wheat free/non-GMO/kosher and product of China (that worries me more than a little). Calories 170 each, 100 calories from fat, 12 grams total fat, 1.5 grams saturated fat, 0mg cholesterol, 45mg sodium, 15g total carbohydrate, 2g dietary fiber, 6g sugar, 5g protein, 2% calcium, 8% iron, 0% vitamins A & C. Yummy flavor, can taste the nuts and blueberries, not too sweet for most people, certainly a lot less sweet than any other granola/snack/breakfast/protein type bar we’ve tried. Wish they were bigger, pretty small. Otherwise, very good bars.

Great product and quality…but….

A delicious product. The bluberry bar tastes great and had great ingredients. Mrs. May…if you are listening / reading….the packaging is horrible. There is nothing worse than strugling with a package and tearing it open and having crumbs fall out on you. Considering the composition of the bar, a new, more easily openable package would be great.
Everybody buy some, so they can make more and sell them for less!!

Mrs. May’s Bars

LOVE these bars! They are a great snack, and very tasty. All three flavors are very good, but I prefer the Goji Cranberry!

Great Product, Bogus Price

These are very good nut bars, far superior to anything that you can buy from the big food conglomerates. Wonderful for breakfast or anytime you feel like some nuts. Lightly sugared, so not overwhelming in that department.

However, I can buy a box of 24 bars for $16 locally. So this is not something you want to buy from Amazon unless you are house-bound and have no other way to get them, or you can’t find a local store that carries them. Hint: look at alternative markets, not at your standard cookie-cutter supermarket.

So three stars for a great product that is grossly overpriced in this venue.

delicious and nutritious

These bars are delicious and nutritious. They are a great snack, providing great protein and the good fats from nuts and seeds. The blueberries and raisins give it just enough sweetness without making it too sweet. I initially purchased the variety pack at Costco and while it was a few dollars cheaper than on Amazon, I don’t care for all the flavors….I don’t like the tropical flavor. Save a few dollars and sign up for an Amazon subscription with free shipping.

Tasty

These are tasty bars and overall have pretty good nutrition. When ordering, take note of the SIZE – we had bought these in bulk packaging before (Costco) and these bars on Amazon were slightly smaller in size. No big deal – it doesn’t matter, we just didn’t look at the size so they were slightly smaller than WE expected.

It’s Good

These are tasty and don’t have too much sugar. They cost more than candy bars, but you get what you pay for.

Look Kids, It’s Food!

I love these bars! The only reason I was turned off at first was that the fat content seemed high at 12g of fat 1.5 of which is saturated fat but a 1 ounce serving of cashews has 12g of fat, 2 of which are saturated fat – so that kind of puts it into perspective.

I, like most people these days, am trying to eat healthier and for me that includes not just watching the calories and fat but being aware of what is in all these snack bars and meal replacement bars. I’m trying to avoid processed foods and things with chemical names I can’t pronounce, spell and/or recongnize the root words of. So these are nutritious, delicious and have a limited number of ingredients all of which I recongnize as actual food stuffs. Yippee. All of my requirements have been met and I am free to snack happily away. Thanks, Mrs. May.
