Skout Organic Review

What is Skout Organic?

Based out of Portland Oregon, Skout Organic is delivering organic, vegan and gluten free trail bars to the market.

It all started with a love for the outdoors/adventures and frustration with the difficulty of finding proper organic, healthy AND tasty bars – in 2008 Jason Pastega decided to throw his favorite organic ingredients in a kitchen mixer.. And BOOM! Six months later Skout Organic was founded! Skout Organic is as passionate about their organic products as they are about running a sustainable business and giving back to the community and select environmental and humanitarian charities.

“Our mission is to provide great tasting, healthy, organic foods to sustain those who embrace adventure and actively pursue the outdoors.” 

A bonus fact that makes my heart sing: The company name is inspired by a very loved companion and adventurer – the dog Scout, who spent 7 years exploring and enjoying the great outdoors of Oregon together with her human Jason.

Skout Organic Sampler

Evelin and Skout Organic

I received a sample pack of Skout Organic, including all five of the flavors: Blueberry Almond, Apple Cinnamon, Cherry Vanilla, Chocolate Coconut, and Chocolate Peanut Butter. All these bars are natural, vegan, gluten free and certified organic which means the ingredient list looks great in my eyes!

Skout Organic Review Chocolate Coconut

Let’s take a look at the ingredients in the above pictured Chocolate Coconut bar: Organic Dates, Organic Gluten-Free Oats, Organic Coconut, Organic Almonds, Organic Blue Agave Nectar, Organic Fair Trade Cocoa Liquor, Sea Salt.

Love it! How can I not when the ingredients are organic, nutritious and healthy?!

Not only does Skout Organic use great organic ingredients, but they put the ingredients together very well. The flavors are great – the combined ingredients are well balanced and go together really well!

In my book anything with chocolate and peanut butter is awesome, and that is no exception with Skout Organic. I LOVED the Chocolate+Coconut and Chocolate+Peanut butter bars! But I can honestly say that all flavors of Skout Organic won my heart. The Cinnamon/Apple totally feels like a healthy apple pie – YUM! The flavors Blueberry+Almond and Cherry+Vanilla were also very tasty. In fact, the Cherry+Vanilla bar might have been my absolute favorite with a little hint of tartness?!

Skout Organic Cherry Vanilla

As for the consistency of the bars – in my opinion they’re awesome! The bars are very fresh and have a great texture. Enough chewing resistance to make it really feel like a trailbar, but not too much so that you have to fight to chew it up. Does that make any sense? Explanation: I have tried trailbars in the past which were a bit too chunky and hard to chew for my taste.. So yes, I really love what Skout Organics did with the texture of their bars.

I highly recommend Skout Organic as a pre or post-run snack, a snack on the go, or as a TRAILbar while out hiking. Check out Skout Organic’s website and connect with them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
