Gnu Bar Goodness

groupshotb

Hello! This is Andy. I never post, as I cannot wrestle this away from Amanda, but I am today. We recently received some samples from the good people at Gnu Foods.We got to samples each of the bars shown above. Peanut Butter, Chocolate Brownie, Orange Cranberry, Banana Nut and Cinnamon Raisin.

Gnu Bars are loaded with fiber and 100% natural. So, no high fructose corn syrup and good for you! I have been eating them for a mid morning snack and they keep me going...and pretty tasty! And only about 130 calories! YUM!

So Amanda and I each got to try one. I will break them down one by one I suppose. The Peanut Butter was probably my least favorite of the bunch. It was certainly good but I thought had the least amount of flavor of all of them. It was good, but the thing with these high fiber bars is that they taste like high fiber bars. That isn't a bad thing, but you can tell. You know what you are getting into. But it was still very good. I guess I just wanted a more intense peanut buttery goodness flavor.

The Chocolate Brownie was very good. Tastes sort of like if an oatmeal cookies met a brownie. I enjoyed it a lot, mostly because I love love love me some chocolate. You can see what the brownie flavored bar looks like above. Delicious!

The Cranberry Orange was very aromatic. It made my classroom(I am a teacher) smell amazing! It was good but to be hones the smell was much more awesome than the bar itself. Bottle that stuff and sell it! Smells great, tastes good, good for you!

My two favorite were the cinnamon raisin and the banana nut. The cinnamon raisin tasted amazing. Cinnamon and raisin are just two flavors that go so well together, you can't go wrong. The banana nut bar, I will admit it, I was skeptical. Usually banana flavored products are gross. This, however, was amazing. Tastes exactly like banana bread. It reminded me of this little shack that Amanda and I bought Banana Bread from in Maui. Although something tells me that bread wasn't so healthy!

I am hooked and bought more at trader joes. Except TJ's didn't have my two favorite varieties so I had to settle with chocolate brownie and peanut butter. Like I said, they weren't my favorite but they were really good and keep me away from snacking on things like candy. I can handle that.

I've been wanting to try those bars but they are so freaking expensive here! About $2.50!

I totally hate banana flavor anything and their banana was the BEST!! My favorite in all the bars they sent me. I even hid it away for snack w/o kids, then they saw it and I had to share. Nice review!
