This is one review from the site, dated 23 May 2009:
The Prana Bar is delicious and healthy, made with organic ingredients and is 77% raw organic foods. Prana Bar is organic, gluten free, vegan and All natural and specializes in enzymes, which help the digestive system absorb food nutrients. Prana will also increase energy from acai powder, which is also a powerful antioxidant with high nutritional potential. The ingredients are quite simple, which is very good in my book. Instead of sugar, this bar has organic agave nectar and organic date paste for sweeteners, which will provide long-lasting energy.
The organic dried coconut is good for cleaning the intestines, removing parasites and cleansing the blood. Organic raisins are a source of boron, a mineral that protects the bones against oesteoporosis. Almonds provide protein, fiber, vitamin E and monounsaturated fats, and are rich in minerals like Iron, Calcium, Phosphorus and Magnesium. Amaranth is a source of lysine and phytosterol, working on inflammation and chronic diseases. With all those amazing nutrients, this bar is highly recommended for your health.
Enzymes, the delicate dynamos cannot be duplicated by science, because they are the stuff of life. Enzymes break down food into basic components so the body can absorb nutrients and eliminate waste efficiently. Your body can manufacture enzymes, but the more you use your enzyme potential, the sooner it runs out. Nearly all the enzymes naturally present in food are destroyed by processing and cooking, causing your body to deplete its own limited supply when digesting such foods. Raw, organic and unprocessed foods, rich in enzymes, restore your enzyme levels and increase health, vitality and longevity.

The taste is fantastic…sweet but not sugary, with a slightly salty taste. The raisins gives a special taste, together with the almonds and coconut. It reminds me of home made candy.
