We’re “Keen” on Keen-Wah Decadence Bars

Keen-Wah Decadence, also known as Keen-Wah Delicious.

I remember when quinoa first started getting popular. The first time I read about it, my first thought was: “Now how the heck do you say that?” I can’t remember exactly how I first said it before looking up the correct pronunciation, but I can guarantee you that it was humorous and way, way off. I can’t imagine I was alone in that, right? (I’m imagining you agreeing with me right now for moral support.) This little factoid—and ridiculously long intro to what will be a simple review—is just one of the reasons why YogaEarth’s Keen-Wah Decadence bars make me smile. The name helps you pronounce quinoa correctly! Brilliant!

And that’s no coincidence, as the Keen-Wah Decadence bars are quinoa-based, with eco-friendly powdered organic coconut nectar (for sweetness) and organic superfoods listed as ingredients. Sustainably sourced and co-created with yoga teachers, Ayurvedic practitioners, health experts and community members from around the world, these bars contain happy-belly goodies like almond butter, chia seeds, cacao and brown-rice protein. With about 200 calories a bar, five grams of protein and four grams or fiber, these are a snack you can feel good about. They’re gluten-free, organic, vegan and contain no GMO ingredients. They’re also high in healthy omega-3 fats. Yum.

The Keen-Wah Decadence bars come in three chocolate-covered flavors: Chocolate Chia, Coconut Almond and Cayenne Cinnamon. Chocolate Chia is the most chocolaty of the bunch; Coconut Almond is the most coconutty of the three; and Cayenne Cinnamon? Well, that one is my favorite. While they all taste good, Cayenne Cinnamon is chocolaty with just a hint of spice and cinnamon. This time of year, it’s perfection.

The only downsides to these bars? They’re pretty pricey ($2+) and pretty tiny, in my opinion. For the same 200 calories, a piece of fruit and a slather of almond butter would probably fill you up for longer. And I do wish they had more than five grams of protein. However, it’s definitely a bar you can feel good about throwing in your gym bag—and it actually tastes good, too. Plus, there’s that whole teaching-you-how-to-say-quinoa-right thing. So, Keen-Wah, we’re officially “keen” on you!
