Vegan Energy Bars is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Vegan I love the promotion of vegan baking on here. The inclusivity is very much appreciated, especially over the holidays. I always buy the Vegan Becel because it’s the same great brand I grew up on, with the same great taste...just made with compassion. They were great!
