Energy snacks here, come and get ’em!

I’m so glad I went to the Gluten Free Allergy Free Expo this past weekend. I tasted a lot of different products and now I’ve made a new friend who needs help with snacks when she’s out on the training field (military). So, here’s products that I tasted and have my “SEAL OF APPROVAL” and some I have not:

NOW energy bar

NOW: No energy wasted energy bars. Oh, the coconut one is heaven. There was a party going on in my mouth! I have a pamphlet the NOW people provided and they’re all about the ATHLETE. These bars are the perfect solution for providing the necessary high-potency energy and nutrition needed to Power Any Adventure. NOW products are made with all-natural, non-GMO ingredients, gluten free. They have a store locator. Even in my small town, there are about 10 places to buy these bars!

mambo-glamourEnjoy Life: Not nuts! Seed and Fruit. Enjoy Life has a variety of different products can be purchase at Amazon. Their web site also has a store locator and on-line locator. I saw on their product page that they have Plentils. Oh Heavens, these are great! They taste like baked potato chips but the first ingredient is LENTILS! My husband got a snack bag at the Expo and I found it open on the counter. I tasted one–it was definitely hard to stop eating them! Okay, Plentils can’t be taken out onto the training field unless you want to eat powdered Plentils by the time you’re done, but they’ll be soooooo good later!

highproteinNogii. NoGii Bars were created to provide a healthy NO GLUTEN alternative for active lifestyles. Whether you are on-the-go, at play, or in the gym, NoGii bars are formulated to give you and your family good, clean, gluten-free nutritional food choices. It looks like these bars are sold at Walgreen’s, CVS, Costco and other stores. Yep, even Amazon sells ’em!

BOMS logoBakery on Main Street.  They have LOTS of products. I’ve honed in on their TRUE bars, but they have granola that you can put in ziplocks and take with you…just a thought 🙂 For their store locator, my web crawler kept thinking. So, of course, I went to my next favorite store…you got it AMAZON! — OH MY, not a good source. Amazon only carries BOMS granola 😦   Their products seem a little hard to find. I did see VITACOST sells a lot of their products.


EL’s Medleys. If you were a fan of Gardettos, you will absolutely love EL’s Medleys. Once again, EL’s has a store locator, you can purchase them on their website, or you can go to Amazon. Is there ANYthing Amazon doesn’t carry? Okay, this product isn’t necessarily a great snack to take out into the training field, but I had to tell you about this wonderful product!

pineapple crunchiesCRUNCHIES Freeze Dried Natural Snacks. I thought they only had fruit crunchies, but they’ve got vegetables too. These are VERY GOOD. I can see offering them to toddlers, but if you’re looking to pack some fruit into your training bag or day trip or school lunch, oh Heaven’s, you can’t go wrong! Guess where you can buy these online…you got it…AMAZON!

All these products, I have personally tried. I LOVE them! If anyone has any more “on the go” snacks that they love, please let me know and I’ll add them to my list 🙂
