This was the selection we were sent for review. From the Fruit & Nut line we received 3 Almonds & Apricot in Yogurt. From the Nut & Spices line we received 2 Madagascar Vanilla Almond and lastly from the Plus line we received Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio plus Antioxidants.
I will start with the Almond & Apricot in Yogurt. This one is my absolute favorite. This 1.6oz bar is all natural, gluten & wheat free, 4g of fiber, very low in sodium and no Sulphur dioxide. In addition it has a low Glycemic index (28) and is non GMO & has no trans fats. That all sounds great, right? But how does it taste you ask? It is amazing! I have a sweet tooth and this satisfies it!
The 2nd one I will talk about is the Pomegranate Blueberry pistachio one from the Plus line. It has 50%DV antioxidants, vitamins A, C & E. It is all natural/Non GMO, Gluten free, low Gylcemic, good source of fiber, very low sodium and dairy free. I think he likes the blueberries in the mix. I really enjoy this one as well.
The final one we tried was from the Nut & Spices line. This is the Madagascar Vanilla Almond bar and it is just packed with nuts. Actually all of these snacks are loaded with nuts. This one has 7g protein and 5g of fiber. It is also all natural/non GMO, gluten free, no sugar alcohols, low Glycemic, very low sodium, and dairy free. My 6-year-old son liked this one and the Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio ones the same he said. He could not pick a favorite. My 4-year-old son said he didn’t like any of them because he really does not like nuts at all so I wasn’t surprised by his answer. My girls and I all picked the Almonds & Apricots in yogurt. I enjoyed the other two as well but this one has the sweetness I crave. If you don’t like nuts or if you have a nut allergy than these are definitely not for you but if you enjoy nuts these are definitely wonderful and healthy alternatives to a lot of the junk food out there.
