A few years ago I began heavily researching and looking into the “gluten free” craze. A former friend of mine had elected a gluten free diet and I was not sure about how the decision would affect ones health. What I found is that certain food options were excluding particular grains and using other flour bases for ease of digestion. Hence why folks who suffer from Celiacs can enjoy the alternative food options in their diet. In my investigations, for those of us who choose gluten free and are not a slave to the dietary restriction, I found that by adding in gluten free food options creates for a more well balanced diet.
Gluten free foods have received such a terrible reputation for being tasteless, cardboard like, flavorless. Last I checked, potatoes, garbanzo beans, rice, to name a few, are pretty tasty in my diet. Though most have found these flours to be less than savory in their recipes and foods, snacks like The Gluten Free Bar and their newest addition Gluten Free Bites. The Gluten Free Bar offers delectable, healthy grab and go bites perfect for any occasion.
â€œWeâ€™re two brothers who get along well with each other, but not with gluten,â€ said Elliot Rader, Co-Founder and Partner at GFB. â€œOur goal is to create fun and flavorful gluten-free snacks for everyone â€“ after all, eating is something we do each day so letâ€™s enjoy it. The development of Bites has been an exciting transition into the cluster category. We basically combined the nutrition of a protein bar with the decadence of a truffle. No other cluster in the category does this and weâ€™re excited to share the Bites with our customers.â€
Admittedly I hid this package from my kids. We received a package of the Dark Chocolate Coconut and PB&J to try out. With dark chocolate as my favorite (and most decadent) treat the GFB bites did not last more than a day. The bite size snacks, which are two bites a serving, they were easy to pop into your mouth and enjoy. Rich delicious flavor without any guilt. They have great MACRO figures, if you happen to track your macronutrients, with 5 grams of fat, 12 grams of carbohydrates and 4 grams of protein. Packed with goodness all around! The PB&J can’t be beat too with the same figures, not to mention it tastes just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
