Product Review: The GFB – Gluten Free Bar – all natural/ dairy free/ vegan

Posted on | January 1, 2012 | 2 Comments

GFB sent me complimentary samples of their all natural gluten free bars to test  and review. I admit, I was a bit nervous, since I either really love gluten free snack bars or dislike them.  I tend to be particular, even borderline picky. Would this be a bar that I love?

Yes! I loved them. I admit it.  They were chewy and satisfying and curbed my appetite without feeling sugared up.  I tested two flavors, peanut butter, and peanut butter chocolate.

Both bars were moist, soft, and chewy and had a surprising crunch inside from crispy rice (think Gluten Free Rice Krispies Cereal
).  They also had some chunks of peanut and whole golden flax seeds that added texture and flavor in both bars.

As for flavor, the peanut butter bar  had a milder peanut flavor, while the peanut butter chocolate was kicked up a notch with the addition of dairy free semi sweet chocolate.  These bars were also sweetened with  organic brown rice syrup and organic agave nectar, which I love. These added subtle sweetness without overpowering the simple flavors of the peanut and chocolate.

I like that these bars are dense and hold their shape in warm temperatures, which makes them perfect for hikes or outings around town tucked away safely in a purse or backpack. I also like that they are higher in protein and healthy fat without being too high in sugars. Overall. these bars are a winner in my book!

Rating: 5 stars

Pros: satisfying, great flavor and texture, great portable snack, simple ingredients

Cons: Can’t think of any of the actual bar, limited availability in retail locations
