Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Dark Chocolate Almond Bars Have Landed!

By Mark Sisson
98 Comments

Dark Chocolate Almond BarsThroughout the years, I’ve rolled out several recipes for Primal Energy Bars on Mark’s Daily Apple—do-it-yourself treats packed with energy, protein, and healthy deliciousness. I want to thank you for experimenting with me, because it’s brought us to TODAY…the official launch of my latest PRIMAL KITCHEN™ creation—Dark Chocolate Almond Bars.

They are everything you’d expect in a bar that bears the Primal name. And they boast 15 grams of protein, just 3 grams of sugar and 8 grams of net carbs per bar, and 170 milligrams of potassium. Those are some impressive stats if I do say so myself!

The Taste: I don’t go for the sickly sweet bars that are really just Snickers disguised in a “healthier” package, but I did like the idea of combining nutty crunch with decadent rich chocolate and chewy caramel. So, I whipped together dark chocolate, Turkish almonds, roasted pumpkin seeds, a caramel coating, and a touch of coconut for a subtly sweet but totally satisfying taste.

The Ingredients: Like all PRIMAL KITCHEN™ products, you can rest assured there are no artificial ingredients in my Dark Chocolate Almond Bars. Just: Almonds, Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Grass-Fed Collagen, Isomalto-Oligosaccharides (Cassava Root), Water, Coconut Flakes, Honey, Natural Flavors, Coconut Oil, Bitter Chocolate, Cocoa Powder, Himalayan Pink Salt, Monk Fruit Extract, Tocopherols (Vitamin E).

darkchocalmond_bar

Let’s break that down in terms of nutritional benefit.

Grass-fed Collagen: The ancestral diet was loaded with collagen protein. Primal humans ate the odd bits and tougher cuts of beef that made up the connective tissue of animals, but nowadays, these parts of the meat get thrown away…because who wants to eat tendons and skin raw? Well, some of you hard-core Groks maybe…but, we can cook them.

PRIMAL KITCHEN™ protein bars are made with grass-fed collagen protein from bovines pasture-raised in Brazil. This type of grass-fed collagen has been shown to help reduce joint pain, improve sleep quality, support skin, hair and nail growth, and enhance digestion.

The grass-fed collagen protein that’s in my protein bars is packed with glycine, and studies have shown that glycine can counteract the effects of methionine. Why do we care? Because animal foods like muscle meat, eggs and dairy get a bad rap because they’re high in the amino acid methionine, which animal trials have shown can decrease life span. With as much collagen per bar as in a cup of bone broth, now we Groks can enjoy all the benefits of a protein-rich diet.

Dark Chocolate Almond Bars 2

Inulin: Primal Kitchen’s Dark Chocolate Almond Bars are a terrific source of fiber in the form of inulin. Inulin is a prebiotic fiber that feeds the trillions of foreign cells in our digestive tracts. In other words, it’s food for your gut flora, and trust me, you want your gut flora fed and happy! Your gut microbiome controls factors into nearly every aspect of your health—your digestive, cognitive, emotional, psychological, immune, metabolic and liver health.

Inulin is also being studied as a possible weight loss aid. Eating prebiotic fiber in the form of inulin helps you feel fuller, faster—so you don’t go overboard on calories—and it won’t spike your blood-sugar levels. Preliminary research supports inulin’s effectiveness as an appetite suppressant.

Monk Fruit: Also called Luo Han Goa, monk fruit is a Chinese herb cultivated for centuries by Buddhist Luohan monks. Much like stevia, it’s a delicious and natural sweetener without all the calories of sugar.

Nuts: We’ve added calcium-rich almonds, and pumpkin seeds, a terrific source of omega-3 fatty acids, carotenoids, magnesium, and zinc.

Paleo Plus: My Dark Chocolate Almond Bars are paleo approved, and gluten, grain, dairy and soy free!

I’m sure you’ll want to be on of the first in the community to taste these bars. Order today and you’ll receive FREE domestic shipping from PrimalBlueprint.com. Or, if you prefer, you can order PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Dark Chocolate Almond Bars from Thrive Market.

I hope you enjoy my bars as much as I do. They’re a hit at the office and my family is loving them. Please let me know what you think in the comments below.

Sounds good. But both links to purchase don’t seem to work for me. The thrive link takes me to a 404 Not Found page and the native order page just spins forever and then says “We’re sorry, there has been an error processing your request!”. So much for that.

I’m disappointed that these are “protein” bars. What the world needs is some fat bars or keto bars. That said, PK might make big inroads on Quest’s market share, given that Quest has recently reformulated their products beyond repair. Please update the FAQs to address the “hydrolyzed” seen on the NF panel for the collagen. Please update the FAQs to address the provenance of the honey (or better yet, get it out of the product entirely). In the majority of processed foods on the market today, “honey” is just HFCS with a bit of bee spit (if only because that’s… Read more »

Hi Bob, We are a fat bar, that happens to be high in protein too! Thanks for pointing that out, we’ll tailor our marketing accordingly. In fact, there are 15g of high quality fat from almonds, pumpkin seeds and coconut oil in 1 bar. We consider this to the ultimate low-carb bar due to it’s reduced sugar content. Yes, we chose to include a mere 3g of sugar in the form of honey, but we think this is minuscule in comparison to the amounts of sugar seen in other “Paleo” bars. And there s absolutely no HFCS found in our… Read more »

Thanks for the clarifications. I LOVE Mark’s Greek Dressing and these bars sound great. My only concern is that there is no mention of the chocolate being fair trade. Because of the prevalence of slavery in the chocolate industry, I only eat chocolate if sourced in a manner where it’s clear there’s been no slavery. Fair-trade is the easiest way for me to know that but sometimes the source of the chocolate helps. For example, I understand the farms in Costa Rica are closely supervised for this. Please clarify what you can about the source of the chocolate components of… Read more »

Any chance of a nut butter based bar? After chemotherapy back in the mid 80s I am left with teeth that don’t stand up to whole or coarse chopped nuts (or coarse cocoa nibs for that matter). These bars look (both appearance and ingredients) to be quite yummy and I’d love to be able to get a box (or five) of these, but I’d be unable to eat the best parts. I have been getting a box of the EPIC bars every month, wallet stops me from getting more of those, are there perchance any plans for a meat and… Read more »

Hey James! We are working on a bunch of new flavors, but we haven’t determined which route we are going exactly. We will keep the nut butter base in the back of our minds. This one is definitely chewy. One reader mentioned heating it in the oven to soften it and make it easier to chew. Or what about pulsing it in the blender a few times?!? Ha!

We hear you! They are in fact, just cocoa extract with a fancy name to protect proprietary information. It’s more of a legality issue than anything else, but we are working to adjust the label to cocoa extract. We chose one of the world’s most premium bar makers located in Canada to make our bar and they are just as committed to ingredient integrity as we are!!

Liz Mostaedi
9 months 12 days ago

Our natural flavors are simply cocoa extract. There is absolutely no MSG or any other weirdness that is sometimes present in other natural flavors. We are working with the legal team to be able to label it as such and hope to make a change before we print out next labels. Sorry for the scare! And thanks for bearing with us!

… and I just did. I’ll probably eat half a bar at a time at the end of my morning primal meal and smear a little coconut oil on it and pop a few berries to end the meal. I see it as a nice supplement to a meal, a healthy dessert so to speak. Of course, a nice on the go snack in a pinch. There are a million protein bars out there, and 99.99% are crap IMO. I tried a primal bar once that was so hard I literally could not eat / chew it. I used to… Read more »

Mark, I love you and I have purchased your books and products in the past, but I am disappointed that you are introducing this non-food item. Primal Mayo is also a non-food item, but it is not to be eaten alone; it’s added to flavor and enhance real food. Some issues I have with this product: As nuts and chocolate constitute the primary ingredients, won’t the phytates interfere with mineral absorption? You break down the protein and carbohydrate macro-nutrients, but give nothing about the exact constituents of the fat composition, something you would always do when answering if a food… Read more »

Scot, I see your point. I believe this product will be useful for everyone who are on the go and are not used to fasting. This bar will suit people who travels a lot or happens to need a fast casual snack. For sure the bio-availability will not match the ones of real food. And packaged food lose lots of flavor, so I don’t see any problem with some minor natural flavoring. Look at the good: it doesn’t have vegetable oils, heavy conservatives, HFCS, hydrogenated fats, nitrites, nitrates, etc I don’t think of it as a meal replacement or of… Read more »
Morgan

Thanks Frank! Scot – Yes, we definitely recommend a real food diet. This was never meant to replace meals on a regular basis. But let’s be honest: we are Groks living in a modern world, and sometimes you need something on the go. We find that 99% of all options on the market are loaded with sugar and instead of satiating the pallet, they leave you craving a 2nd bar, just like candy. Mark spent 20 years (literally) coming up with a bar recipe that he was excited about. And even though it comes in a wrapper, it’s still real… Read more »

Thanks for your response Frank. With respect to the collagen you write that “with our bar, you know exactly what you’re getting.” Can you please point out where to find this information about the number of grams of collagen there is in each bar? You did not address my question about the composition of the fats in the bar: omega 6, bio-available omega-3, saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated. (The omega-3 in pumpkins seeds is not nearly as bio-available as fish oil omega-3). The bars state that the amount of saturated fat is 4g, which is quite low. You did not address the… Read more »

I have to correct two things that I wrote above: the carb content is stated as 14g, which it states includes fiber. The net carb content per bar is stated as 8g. So apparently, the carb/fat ratio is not as bat as I stated above. Also, the bars state that the amount of collagen protein is 15g. I think the collagen product is what is the gold here, skip the nuts and chocolate. Let a person eat those alone if they choose to. Mark, why not just put out the collagen product alone or added with a saturated fat, with… Read more »

Scot, I entirely agree. I think it’s counterproductive for the Paleo/Primal movement to be drifting in the direction of processed products and substitute foods. Moreover, it provides fuel for the naysayers, who would already have people believe that Paleo is nothing but a fad based on bizarre alternate ingredients. I know from personal experience that a Paleo diet works for many of us because we do eat real food. We practice IF by skipping the snacks, no matter how healthy they are supposed to be–particularly if we’re trying to lose weight. Even when out in the middle of nowhere, I’d… Read more »

Thanks Shary,

Mark’s blog posts are amazing. And his books are amazing. But his direction into processed foods, and they are processed foods, is I think contrary to the Primal philosophy and intellectual honesty that runs through his blog posts. I see a conflict of interest here.

Can’t wait for the Primal salad dressings, Primal ketchup, Primal mustard, Primal salsa, Primal barbecue sauce, etc.

So expensive to ship to Canada. $26 for shipping and with the exchange rate makes it over $7/bar. Will you have any stores selling these bars in Canada? I’d also be interested in your other products and I know several others who would be too.

I must say I am somewhat perplexed by some of the comments and concerns raised by readers / posters. This product by my estimation is a high quality protein bar what ever way you want to chew it. And yes one could argue chomping down a handful of macadamia nuts would be shall we say a little more prudent. But come on I certainly don’t believe these bars are harmful.

Morgan

Thank you, Rob!! Our thoughts exactly. Mark likes to say, if you’re stressing about food so much that it’s causing stress, it’s likely doing more harm than good.

Harmful? No. Optimal? Again, no. I realize that many people like the taste and convenience of snack bars and are able to keep them in the proper dietary context. But newbies to the Paleo way of life, who are often struggling with food addictions and excess weight–as well as trying to understand how to maintain a healthy diet–are going to get a mixed message regarding processed and/or replacement foods.

Hi Chuck,

We absolutely see them being able in stores like Whole Foods and other natural/independent health food stores.

This kind of bar is most welcome when out and about with active children. Yes we prefer to cook and prepare real food but it’s hard keeping up with the needs of two very active pre-teens when away from home for the day or week. Especially when their peers are eating sweets and doughnuts.

Thanks for your feedback. We’ve heard similar reports from other customers (in addition to reports from people who loved the texture) and we’re working on the issue right now. Unfortunately, the coldness of our warehouse and the cold shipping temps haven’t been nice on us and we think this is causing a hardening of the bars. We hope to soften the next batch.

I’ll answer myself….yes I zapped them for 10 seconds, it made them much softer and so much easier to bite and chew.

I have to agree with you and the other comments on the texture. I bought 2 boxes and don’t think I can eat them. I am seriously worried about pulling out a crown just to bite into it.

As a dentist I couldn’t recommend these to any one with cemented restorations such as crowns or bridges. They are difficult to chew and I found hard to digest. I was belching for hours after consuming one as a replacement meal. I like the taste and the ingredients and don’t think the storage temperature really affected then ones I purchased since I live in Louisiana.

As reported by others above, while I was thrilled to take delivery of my first box of Dark Chocolate Almond Bars, my experience eating them is less than thrilling. Despite the yummy ingredients, I’m finding they taste positively awful. And even though low in sodium, for me they are also way too salty.
