Gnu Food Bars Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! My next reviews for Gnu Food Bars. Gnu Food Bars are delicious baked fiber bars that come in a variety of flavors. They sent me two of each of their amazingly delicious bars.



The bar flavors are:
Cinnamon Raisin
Banana Walnut
Chocolate Brownie
Espresso Chip
Orange Cranberry
Lemon Ginger
Peanut Butter


These are all so delicious. As the website says: "One Gnu Bar a day gives you 12 grams of seriously good-for-you soluble and insoluble fiber. That's nearly 50% of your Daily Value!"

Some other great things Gnu Bars consist of are: they're made with 6 whole grains, fruit juice sweetened, made with organic whole wheat and kamut flours. They're vegan and kosher too! They also don't have high fructose corn syrup, no refined sugars (except in the chocolate brownie and espresso chip), no cholesterol, no trans fat, no hydrogenated oils, no dairy, whey or soy. They're basically healthy and super delicious, too! They all come in at 130 to 140 calories which isn't too shabby either!

They have the consistency almost of baked cookies. I loved most of them, not going to lie I can't really pick a favorite because they all were delicious. If I was in the mood for something sweet but not chocolatey I rocked the cinnamon raisin or banana walnut, but if I did want chocolate I went for the chocolate brownie or the espresso chip. The two I actually was not a fan of were the Lemon Ginger and the Orange Cranberry just because I have a hardcore sweet tooth and I do love sugary things. I'm not a huge fan of the lemon ginger combination with anything and the orange cranberry was too fruity for a baked bar for me. But I'm sure if you're into fruitiness you will love them.

Overall, Gnu bars are so awesome. Great for snacking on the go, I brought them with me to a few shows I was doing audience work for just to munch on and they really hit the spot. A nice, healthy alternative than regular candy bars or even granola bars. Definitely check them out!

Buy It! Head on over to Gnu Food Bars' website and browse their awesome and delicious selection. Click on the find a store tab at the bottom to see if a store near you sells them! They sell them at Whole Foods and the Vitamin Shoppe near me!

Win It! ONE winner will receive an assorted box of Gnu Bars!
