As you may have noticed, I have been a bit absent lately. My brother called me “a blog slacker”. I repent.
It’s been pretty busy around here lately. I got sick during spring break, and had a tough month getting over that dumb cold (there may have been something else wrong with me, but I refused to go to the doctor). Also, I was busy copy editing articles and recipes for the May issue of Delight gluten free Magazine. (Have you subscribed yet?)
So, I got these snack bars in the mail a few weeks ago. I wanted to make sure my taste buds were fully functional before telling you about them.
Well, we love them!
Jungle Grub snack bars come in three flavors: Berry Bamboozle, Peanut Butter Groove, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. They are small bars – 100 calories each and only 2 Weight Watchers points. And unlike many nutrition bars, these actually taste like their names (though I’m only guessing at what groove and bamboozle should taste like, lol).
Jungle Grub snack bars are organic, meet school nutrtition standards, and are certified gluten-free by the GFCO. According to the package, they were “formulated by nutritionists for kids ages 3 to 99.” Each bar provides 4 grams of protein, less than 15 grams of carbs, and less sugar than a glass of milk. They are not dry and crumbly, but moist and chewy.
Carter thinks they are cookies. Here he is sporting his Jungle Grub tattoo.
If you are on the West Coast, look for them in your local stores. If not, you can buy individual boxes from ShopOrganic.com and cases from Amazon.com (or you will soon – they are currently not in stock on Amazon).
Hooray for new snack bars!
And so I don’t get flogged, here is a picture from Corice on Saturday. Can you believe she’ll be seven months tomorrow? My, how time flies.
