If there’s one thing you should know about me it’s that I’m all about snacking. Usually healthy, sometimes not so much. But when it comes down to it, I really love finding new nutrient-rich foods that keep me full without packing on the poundage. So when GNU Natural Foods contacted me to do a review of their Flavor & Fiber Bars, my answer was a resounding ‘yes!’
Gnu bars are a healthy snack that pack 12 g of fiber into each, 130-140 calorie bar, and ach bar is made with delicious, all-natural ingredients and are available in more than eight adventurous flavors like carrot cake, cinnamon raisin and chocolate brownie. All GNU bars are vegan except for the Blondie, which contains milk powder.
Just in case you were wondering where the “GNU” comes from, the name was inspired by the African Gnu that has an ox-like head, mane of a horse, and horns of a buffalo. It looks unusual from the outside, but inside it functions beautifully – as does the GNU bar.
Another thing I love about GNU bars? They’re a small company that’s committed to making all-natural foods that help address specific nutritional needs and health conditions. And in light of the American obesity epidemic, their all natural bars are just the type of healthy snack we should be all eating, and especially giving to our kids.
I was shipped one box of 16 bars – 2 of each of their 8 flavors – and have been extremely impressed by all of them! The peanut butter, chocolate brownie, blondie and carrot cake were all delicious, and none of them left me feeling hyped up on sugar or unsatisfied in my hunger. They were just the right amount of protein and calories a snack should provide, but were so delicious it was like a having a special mid-day treat. (my little sister-in-law Bethany loved them, too. )
Here’s the awesome news – GNU bars is offering to giveaway AN ENTIRE 16-bar case to one reader in their choice of flavor! How rad is that? To enter simply leave a comment telling me why you’d like to try GNU bars. Extra entries are granted for:
