Gnu Foods Review/Giveaway CLOSED

#88 Mindi 
 
Fiber is a huge part of our lives for so many reasons. But, the problem I find with fiber I just don't like it, and it that simple. So, having the chance to review Gnu Foods Flavor & Fiber bars it has opened my eyes and taste buds to some pretty good bars, plus in the process get some fiber in my body which I am sure it needs. These bars are a great source for helping with weight management, regularity and even hear health.


A little bit about the company: Gnu Foods is a small company that makes all natural, great-tasting foods that help address specific nutritional needs and health conditions. It was founded in 2004 with the introduction of their first product, the Gnu Bar, a high fiber bar that promotes regularity and heart health. Real health makes us feel good inside and out, physically and emotionally. Returning to real health, feeling good the way nature intended—that’s what Gnu Foods is all about.
Gnu Bars are available in 7 Great Tasting Delicious Flavors:
~Banana Walnut
~Chocolate Brownie
~Cinnamon Raisin
~Espresso Chip
~Lemon Ginger
~Orange Cranberry
~Peanut Butter
 I was actually a little shocked at first since the name of the bars are flavor&fiber I figured I wouldn't like them if there was a lot of fiber. Shockingly enough I found them quit tasty with all the different flavors of bars that are offered. Of course I did have a favorite as I do with any brand of bars I try the Chocolate Brownie Bar was so tasty and I wouldn't mind to have a few more of those bars. Plus, these little bars are not only high in fiber but they have 6 whole grains and only 140 calories that is not bad at all. With me not being a huge fiber eater I am glad to know that each bar is 50% of your daily value of fiber which I am sure will do my body good. These bars are not really hard which is nice but they still have a nice crunch to them. These bars are great for people like me who aren't much into eating fiber unless of course it is in an awesome tasting bar. I also like the fact that I can also let my little ones eat these bars to help with their health. They seemed to really like the Peanut Butter Bars the best, but with kids I am just happy I was able to get them to eat really anything that is healthy.


Here is some really great information about the bars and what they have to offer as well.
~ 12 grams equals 50% daily value of fiber
~ Works with diets and weight management
~ promotes on - going reqularity
~ supports heart health / lowers cholesterol
~ entirely clean
~ no high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils
~ 100% fruit juice sweetened; no added sugars ( except for the chips in the chocolate brownie and the espresso chip)
~ Kosher - OU-D
~ Vegan
