Annie's Gluten Free Granola Bars and Valentine's Day Fruit Snacks

Last month I was given the opportunity to sample a couple of the new products from Annie's Homegrown, gluten free chewy granola bars. They are available in two flavors: Oatmeal Cookie and Double Chocolate Chip.

Now I've tried many a gluten free bar in my day, but the attempts of making chewy granola bars gluten free hadn't quite made it yet. That chewiness has never been there, leaving the bars dry and tough. This was not the case with the Annie's gluten free granola bars. They are very soft and chewy, as they should be. They're the closest to the Quaker granola bars I remember as a kid. (My favorite Market Day item....along with the string cheese.)

Not only was the taste and texture there, but they are full of the good stuff like:
  • 8g of Whole Grains per serving; great source of fiber
  • No artificial flavors, synthetic colors or preservatives 
  • No GMOs
  • No high fructose corn syrup
If you are looking for a more natural treat for Valentine's Day, Annie's has organic fruit snack Valentine's packs for the sweets-filled holiday. Complete with a teacher card, they are perfect for passing out at school. Unfortunately they are not sold online, but word on the Facebook is that you can buy them at Whole Foods, Sprout, Wegman's, and other natural food retailers.

Have you tried the new Annie's gluten free granola bars yet? What do you think?
