The holidays are quickly approaching and for me that means I need something that is not only gluten-free but also packed with protein to get me through this busy time. This is where The Gluten Free bars and bites come into play.
The GFB was created by two brothers, Marshall and Elliott, who were looking for a high protein bar that tasted awesome AND was good for you. Along with making awesome bars and bites, their mission to be the world’s best gluten-free protein snack company out there.
They were very kind to send me several flavors of both the bars and the bites to try. As you can see the variety is great, there is definitely something for everyone.
I went for the bites first………….each package is gluten-free, high in protein, and are also vegan, soy-free, dairy-free and non-GMO.
Description: Welcome to the mellow butteriness of slow roasted cashews and fresh toasted coconut. All with our signature chewy-crispy texture, and now in a resealable pouch. Packed with simple goodness and wholesome protein, two of these bite-sized treats will keep you going ’til your next tasty meal.
MY FAVORITE! I love coconut and cashews so I knew this one was going to be a winner and I was right! The flavor is so fresh and the bites dense but not too heavy. This is the perfect little snack.
Description: That classic combination, peanut butter and jelly, finally made its way into a GFB Bite. Creamy peanut butter paired with real dried strawberries will take you back to childhood, but with a “grown-up” touch, all in a resealable bag.
I’m going to be honest, I have never eaten a pb+j sandwich in my life, seriously, so I was hesitant about this one until I tried it. It is really good, but since I don’t have anything to base it on I am just gonna assume it tastes just like its namesake.
Description: Our most requested flavor comes to you with tart Montmorency cherries and dark chocolate, enrobed in toasted California almonds. Flecked with crisped brown rice, the amazing texture brings out all the yummy notes in each bite-sized morsel. Don’t forget to read the nutrition label for guilt-free decision-making!
Yum! This one was also quite tasty and I love how you can taste each flavor, the chocolate, cherry and almond. I really enjoyed this one, and as with each flavor, they are super fresh and natural tasting.
Description: This may sound (and taste) like a decadent dessert, but it’s actually full of good-for-you ingredients and, like all of our Bites, packs serious protein. So, don’t feel guilty about indulging in this little treasure.
Last but not least, Dark Chocolate Hazelnut, another home run in the taste department. As you can see in all of the pictures, you can see the ingredients in each of the bites, something that is awesome to see so you know it’s not full of artificial flavorings.
Just like the bites, the GFB Bars are just as good. Again, I loved all of the flavors but both the coconut cashew crunch and the dark chocolate coconut were my absolute faves. I found myself grabbing one of the bars when the afternoon slump hit me, usually around 3pm. Not only are they filling, they provide me with the energy boost that I need to get me through the rest of the day, all the while tasting delicious!
