Unlike mass-produced energy bars that contain refined ingredients, Hammer Bars are made in small batches, using only natural, wholesome, 100% organic ingredients. Fluctuations in growing conditions and different harvest times can cause mild variations in the flavor, oil content, and sweetness quotient of the cashews, almonds, and dates used in Hammer Bars. As a result, the taste, texture, and amount of oil coating the bar may be slightly different from batch to batch. Please be assured that we conduct a thorough quality control check on EVERY shipment of Hammer Bars received. The taste, texture, and overall quality MUST meet our stringent standards before we approve the sale of Hammer Bars to you.
