One of the companies I ran into at the Foodbuzz Food Bloggers Festival a couple months back, was 18 Rabbits. I am trying to eat healthier (and I have a LONG way to go, trust me!) so I was immediately drawn to their table. I wanted to learn more about their Granola Bars.
What I found out was that they are Certified Organic and Kosher! Yay! They are made with Oats, not Wheat, which can be hard for some people to digest. They are very low in sodium, have no refined sugars (they use Maple Syrup & Honey instead), no trans fat & no GMO’s! These bars are also sulfur-dioxide free. Sounds good so far, right?!
Here’s what I was given to review:First up is the Cheeky Cherry Chocolate. The ingredients include sweet organic chocolate, Bing Cherries, and cranberries. The Gracious Granola base has pecans, almonds, maple syrup, and coconut. This is quite a dense bar, very filling. I like that it is not too sweet, I don’t want my granola bars to be overly sweetened, these have just the right touch of yummy sweetness. This was my fave of the two, although I genuinely liked them both! Here’s a close-up of the Cheeky Cherry Chocolate:Doesn’t that look delicious? I love cranberries, so this was a no-brainer for me. I felt good eating it, knowing it was made with organic ingredients, that were also GMO free. Next up was the Funky Figs and Cherries Bar.
This one lists figs, cherries and walnuts in the ingredients. Sweetened with honey, 18 Rabbits has added flaxseeds and cacao nibs to their Veritas Granola to make these extra special! Take a looksie:These bars are softer than some of the other granola bars you may be accustomed to, you don’t have to worry about chipping a tooth with these! They make the perfect snack for any time of the day or night. I can see myself biting into one of these after I get back from the gym, or as an after-dinner treat! Children love these bars too! You can find them on Amazon.com & Walgreens.com.
18 Rabbits also sells their Granola & Bunny Bars… maybe they will let me try those one day soon, so I can give you the scoop on them! I highly recommend these granolas bars to you-they are healthy & delicious!
