Bibrave Product Review: Mission Groove Super Bites

Disclaimer: I received samples of Food Groove Mission Bites to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

Snacks. Let’s face it, we all need some, whether it be pre race/post race, during the day, after work, you are it. Bring in Food Groove Mission Super Food Bites. I was excited to give these little guys a try.

Mission Food is based out of Dallas, Texas. The goal is to have pure, raw superfoods in the form a small bite size snack to keep you going. Each bite size snack has a punch essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with the goal to increase energy, improve brain function and decrease chronic disease amongst other things. Each packet has 10 bite size morsels and come in a resealable pouch so you can save some for later (If they make it that long).

We were given 10 samples to try, but 3 separate flavors that included Truffle Punch, The Nutty Adventurer and Mother Earth. The Nutty Adventurer is a combination of  peanut butter, date, goji berries, almond protein, and Chia, amongst other things. You get the peanut butter taste with some kick of the berries. I had some paired with some chocolate chip pancakes after a 10k last weekend and I thought it was a great combo (who knew!) There’s also the Truffle Pouch, that’s more of a chocolate/fruity combination. It has some of the same berries as the Nutty Adventurer, but includes Dark Chocolate, dates and Cacao Nibs to help with the chocolate taste. These were my top two favorites, but I’m a peanut butter lover at heart so the Nutty Adventurer won me over.

Concerned about diet? No fear! Soy free, Gluten Free, Non GMO, Grain Free, Paleo and no added sugars! my one wish is I wish there could be a way to get more protein into these things. I personally struggle getting enough protein in my diet regularly, so if there was a bit more protein in these delicious bites, that would be awesome. Regardless, these are worth a try. They’re easy to pack (I’ve got some in my purse for work), tasty and quite frankly a great way to hold you over pre work out/post work out and give you some pretty awesome health benefits.
