WIN-It-Wednesday: NuGo Free Bars!

As most of you know, I am a “bar junkie” and I can’t go anywhere without my bars stashed in my purse, briefcase or glove compartment. Goodness forbid, if I get stuck somewhere and need a quick, easy and nutritious snack.

All of you gluten, soy and dairy free folks… Feel Free To Snack! NuGo Free makes gluten free, soy free and dairy free eating a real treat!

NuGo Free’s certified Gluten Free bars are one of my favorites. Full of crisp rice, fiber (5 grams per bar), protein (10 grams per bar) and healthy ingredients, NuGo Free bars are delicious & nourishing.

The three gluten-free flavors are perfect too: Carrot Cake is perfect for a breakfast on the run; Dark Chocolate Trail Mix, is a perfect afternoon snack; and Dark Chocolate Crunch, is as good as any dessert.

BONUS: Each bar is between 150 and 160 calories and only “3 points” for those watching their weight – or for those that don’t want to feel bad about eating two in a row!

I also love that NuGO Free bars are 100% natural, vegan OU Pareve plus layered with luscious, REAL dark chocolate (think YUM!) or drizzled with a touch of sweet icing. 

NuGo Free wants to give away a mixed box (12 bars) of their gluten-free bars (4 bars per flavor) to 3 (Yes – three!) LUCKY BeFreeForMe MEMBERS!

How can you win?


Let me know what flavor bar sounds the most scrumptious to you and, if you’d like, what makes you feel FREE!

(What makes ME feel free, you ask? My morning jog, a super extensive gluten-free restaurant menu, and my vegetable garden… to name a couple of things!)


Good Luck and, as always…

Be Free!


NOTE: This contest ends Sunday, June 21 at 12:00 midnight EST

    Oh my, the dark chocolate trail mix sounds amazing!!! I have been looking for GF snack bars for ages.
    This sounds like the perfect blend for snacking. Thanks for posting about it, and the contest. And what makes me feel free? A stroll in the evening by the ocean, waves crashing into the rocks and the wind giving just enough breeze to feel a little of the sea mist across my face. I love it!


  2. Melissa Conrad Says:

    The Carrot Cake sounds Delightful to me! Sounds like a decadent treat on the go! Thanks for the great contsest! I’d have to say standing on a hill overlooking a peaceful valley makes me feel free, getting caught up in the sheer vastness and splendor of it all.

    Melissa 🙂

  3. Rachel Says:

    Dark Chocolate Crunch… sounds so yummy.

    What makes me feel free…? A good book, my back porch, my son playing in the water, all on a beautiful sunny day. There’s no better feeling.

  4. Matt Says:

    The Dark Chocolate Crunch sounds the most appetizing, as you can never go wrong with sweet and crunchy (with a side of healthy!). Something that makes me feel “free” would be knowing that I have something delicious and GF prepared for dinner and not have to fret because it’s hard to pick something safe up last minute.

    Thanks for the contest, I’ll keep my GF fingers crossed!


  5. Katie Says:

    I am digging the Carrot Cake Bar!

    What makes me feel free:

    Swimming in the Ocean!
    Laughing with friends and family.
    Gluten Free Chocolate Fountains 🙂
    Being Gluten Free — I have my life back 🙂

  6. gfe-gluten free easily Says:

    I’d go for Dark Chocolate Crunch … isn’t the wisest advice “eat dessert first!”? 😉

    I feel free riding on our motorcycle with my husband, canoeing down the river by our mountain property, and camping on our mountain property with no phone, computer, etc.

    Thanks! Love all the things these bars are free of!


  7. Cara Says:

    I think the dark chocolate crunch sounds amazing, but so does the carrot cake – I haven’t had anything carrot cake flavored since going gluten free. Just being outdoors makes me free – but specifically swimming in a pool, gardening, going to the ocean, taking my bassets for a walk, and just enjoying God’s creation. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  8. Jean Says:

    Carrot cake would be my choice. Chocolate items are ok, but if it’s chocolate I want, I am content to have a piece of plain dark chocolate without add ons. As for what makes me feel free? It’s waking up early on a Sunday morning and having the house to myself for a couple of hours while my husband and three busy boys are still sleeping.

  9. Rhonda Alewine Says:

    I would love to try the Dark Chocolate Trail Mix. I am always looking for new snacks that I can travel with.
    Going to the beach is what makes me feel free.


  10. Sue Says:

    Dark chocolate crunch sounds good. I like the fact that these bars have lots of fiber and protein in them.

  11. Linda Says:

    The dark chocolate crunch sounds great (really they all do)!!! What makes me feel free? – sitting on the back porch looking at our woods and having a cat in my lap purring away.

  12. Joy Brown Says:

    Dark Chocolate Crunch? AND Gluten Free, Dairy Free AND Soy Free – to be able to eat something without worrying if I am going to get sick? That is freedom.

  13. Francine Says:

    Carrot cake sounds good to me!!

  14. Suzanne Says:

    Yum, all those flavors sound good, but I would have to go with the carrot cake. I like the fact that they have 5 gm of fiber and are lower in calories than most GF bars.
    What makes me feel free…..when I am riding my bike and I have just climbed a large hill… I just coast my way down the other side, with the wind in my hair!

  15. Alicia Says:

    Dark Chocolate Crunch sounds like a pick-me-up – body and spirit!

    What makes me feel free…Hmmm…. turning off the computer [sorry.. but yes indeed] and cell-phone, watching the sunrise or sunset, feeling a gentle breeze, singing – plus taking in all the “freebies” in life : flowers, birds, butterflies, babies and baby critters, having a walk or a talk with a friend, smiles, hugs, etc.

  16. Cassandra Says:

    The carrot cake bar sounds yummy.
    Sweet kisses from my children make me feel free.

  17. julie Says:

    What makes me feel free?—a walk in the park with my dog, she is getting on in years so any time I can spend with her is great, and playing games with my family, I just love that.
    the dark chocolate trail mix sounds wonderful, or the carrot cake both of these would be great to take to work as a lite lunch. THanks for all your great ideas.
    I just love it.

  18. Elizabeth Says:

    The dark chocolate crunch bar sounds great! Cannot beat that combination! =D Hanging out in the evening with my family makes me feel free!

  19. Debra Gowlland Says:

    Dark chocolate crunch would be my first choice with carrot cake as a close second! Going on walks with my children to the park and just enjoying spending time together without being in a rush.

  20. Anne Says:

    What makes me feel free? – my morning run – I get that “runner’s high” – it helps to start my day out right! Family and great friends makes me feel free……………. driving my car in the summer with the radio blariing, windows down and sunroof open makes me Feel Free!

    Dark Chocolate Trail Mix sounds yummy!

  21. Kathi French Says:

    Dark chocolate crunch sounds like a perfect treat for me since I eat chocolate every day! I feel free on the weekends because I get to spend it with my husband and we do whatever we want!

  22. Giovanna Says:


    These bars sounds so good. I would love to win a box. Good luck to all, and may the day be a kind and productive one!


  23. diana ciccone Says:

    I would love to try the carrot cake.

  24. Giovanna Says:

    Hi again,

    Forgot I would love to try the Dark Chocolate Crunch. Would be happy to to try any as a sample too!

    Good day to all,


  25. Marina Says:

    Mmmm, carrot cake. I haven’t had one since my grandmother made them for my birthdays when I was little.

    What makes me feel free? Wide open spaces. The city can make me claustrophobic. I love when I can get somewhere I can see the horizon and open sky.

  26. Ericka Says:

    my morning gym workout makes me feel free and healthy!!!

  27. Tiffany Says:

    The dark chocolate crunch would be yummy — any thing with chocolate is good though. Exploring in a foreign country makes me feel free.

  28. Suz Says:

    Anything chocolate. A new bar to get me through long days of airplane travel sounds good. Airports and airlines haven’t gotten the GF message yet… Being an American not only makes me FEEL free, by God, I AM FREE!

  29. Diane C. Says:

    I would love to try a Carrot Cake bar! What a great flavor to satisfy a sweet tooth craving and at the same time it is good for you! I feel free when I am in my garden enjoying my colorful containers of summer flowers.

  30. Kristy Shoemaker Says:

    What make me feel free is knowing that I can finally give my 1 yr old son a varitety of different foods and not have to worry about what is going to happen when he eats them. Both him and I are well rested now and just seeing how happy he is when he eats is more than words can decribe. I think they all sound wonderful, espically the dark chocolate trail mix.

  31. Roxann Says:

    Either of the dark chocolates sound great. The thought of having something handy when I get the urge for something sweet without having to read a list of ingrediants is just one of the things that make me feel free!!!! Sad how easy I am to please. What else makes me feel free? spending time with my daughter, she is 22 and we spend all our free time together. My dogs, and just sitting around being able to relax with loved ones, no matter where we are.

  32. Denise Says:

    Dark Chocolate Trail Mix sounds good to me! Where do you buy these?
    Not working on a weekday. It is very freeing..

  33. Lisa Durene Says:

    Wow, they all sound delicious! It would be hard to chose one!! But I think the Dark chocolate crunch. What makes me feel free is finally being able to eat food that doesn’t make me sick!

  34. kim Says:

    As a certified bona fide chocoholic, I’d have to say I am already salivating at the mere thought of the Dark Chocolate Crunch!
    What makes me feel free? Not having to make being GF an ordeal in my life.
    Such as: when my family & friends are excited about eating ‘Kim friendly’ food.

  35. Faith Pavkovich Says:

    Carrot cake would do it for me. I think chocolate is over rated. A morning walk through my flower beds with a cup of coffee in hand makes me feel free.

  36. Kara S. Says:

    Ahhh… dark chocolate crunch sounds absolutely fabulous. A day in the park or on a hike or doing something fun with my boys when I do not have to work makes me feel free. There is nothing better than their pure joy and hearing them laugh!

  37. Alisa - Frugal Foodie Says:

    They all sound good, but I am a carrot cake girl at heart.

    Feelin’ free – Enjoying a made-from-scratch meal or snacking on whole fruits and veggies. Also, hiking in the desert mountains, such a feeling of space.

  38. Gwendolyn Says:

    Carrot Cake = Yum!

    What makes me feel most free is riding a horse as fast as he wants through a field, going so fast it takes my breath away and I can’t hear anything but the wind and the sound of hooves.

  39. Sue Fogarty Says:

    All of these sound yummy! I am a certified bar junkie, too, and always looking for some good GF options to throw in my bag or stash in my desk. Portable GF food is always good in my book 🙂

    I feel free taking my dogs for a walk, driving along the coast, or relaxing in the backyard with my husband.

  40. Monica Says:

    Dark Chocolate Crunch.. yes please! I feel free with a bit of quiet time. 🙂

  41. jessica sosinsky Says:

  42. Diane Says:

    I love anything with dark chocolate. Keeping my conscience clear keeps me free.

  43. Joyce Says:

    I would love to try the carrot cake. These sound perfect for breaks at work. What makes me feel free?-spending time with my family. I have 4 children, 1 grandaughter, a new husband and 3 stepsons!

  44. Christine S. Says:

    Carrot Cake.

    Feeling free to me is subconscious contemplation while walking a wilderness trail.

  45. Marie Says:

    What makes me feel free………..spending quality time with my sons, playing, inventing new things to eat for dinner, and trying new g-free snacks to help keep my energy levels where they need to be to be the best mother I can be for four sons ages 19 yrs, 3 1/2 yrs, 2 yrs, and a 6 month old!

  46. Cali Says:

    Dark Chocolate Trail Mix, absolutely.

    I feel free when I walk by the river. I feel free when I get a big hug and kiss from my husband. I feel free when I travel to new places. I feel free when I bite into a gluten free ______ (insert anything, particularly a pizza crust) that doesn’t taste gluten free. 😉

  47. Eileen Sanders Says:

    Carrot cake sounds good to me.

  48. Esther Says:

    Carrot Cake….Chocolate….can’t go wrong with either! Both sound scrumptious!

  49. Tamela Cayward Says:

    Dark Chocolate crunch sounds yummy, then again so does the Carrot Cake. Can’t wait to try them all! Taking a nice relaxing bath with no interuptions and being able to get cleaned up and ready to face the day makes me feel free!

  50. Susan C - AZ Says:

    Dark Chocolate Crunch sounds the best to me. Anything dark chocolate is my favorite. Floating in a pool on a sunny day makes me feel free. Enjoying life without financial worries or health concerns makes me feel free too. Running joyfully in an open park makes me feel free. Wish you all many moments of freedom, joy, peace and love.

  51. Bean Says:

    well… they all sound amazing, but i think the Dark Chocolate Trail Mix sounds the best to me! I love dark chocolate!
    I feel free when I’m baking. I love to bake and create new and delicious recipes, especially ones that are gluten free!

  52. melissa mcneese Says:

    I love the trail mix. My son loves the chocolate. It’s SOOOOO great to have bars without genetically modified soy protein!!! Thank you!!

  53. Tara Serafin Says:

    My pick is “Dark Chocolate Trail Mix”.
    Feeling free to me is walking in my gardens early in the morning,
    just as the sun rises. Enjoying the shimmer of sunshine illuminating
    each flower, as the morning dew sparkles on the petals. Hearing the
    beautiful sound of songbirds and smelling the fragrant roses as the wind

  54. cecelia mangan Says:

    I would like to try theDark Chocolate Crunch, because is the next best thing to heaven. I would not mind trying anyone because they all would make me as happy as having my two grandchildren around,and especially the new one that is due next month.
