Product Review – Glenny’s Almond Cranberry Bar*

*I have decided to review some on-the-go snacks to help people navigate the scary (and usually gigantic) grocery store and be able to pick healthy choices. Let’s be honest, in the modern world we do not always have time to cook everything from scratch, even though that would be the most ideal way to live. No one has asked me to do this, I just think it will be fun.

So, I posted one a little while ago about Cultural Revolution yogurt, and today I am posting one about the delicious snack I just consumed, an Almond/Cranberry bar that was an impulse purchase at Trader Joe’s yesterday. Overall, the flavor of these bars is great – just sweet enough, not overly sugary, and really hearty with all the nuts in there. The best part, however – is that they were priced at $0.99! In a market where bars are usually selling for upwards of $1.50, this is a major bonus. (I once saw a Kind Bar priced over $2 and that’s a little sad – though they are also delicious). I really hope this was not just the “sale price” and that they will continue to be reasonably priced. The only thing I am not totally in love with in these bars are the brown rice crisps and the brown rice syrup, as it goes a bit “against the grain-free” (ha! I just made a pun). Still, overall a very healthy once-in-awhile snack.

Stats: The bar clocks in at 21g carb (a little high, so I sometimes eat just 1/2), 5g protein, and 190 calories.

I’d recommend it if you have a Trader Joe’s nearby – or you could purchase online? Let me know if you see them popping up anywhere else.
