I was wondering if you've heard of You Bar, which is a company that lets you customize your own bar and only uses natural ingredients.
It sounds like a really cool idea.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Vincci!
I had never heard of You Bar until I read your message. Sounds right up my alley, too.
You can basically make your own Lara/Clif Nectar/Pure bar by combining a variety of (mostly nutritious) ingredients to your liking (from dates to optional whey protein powders to dried fruits to a variety of nuts and seeds which you can specifically ask to be roasted, raw, or organic!)
Sounds like a deliciously unique gift idea for a foodie or nutritious snacker in your family or group of friends.
