Friday Favorite: Trader Joe’s Apple & Mango Fruit Bars

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

I like things simple… pure… natural… and no fuss. That is why I was thrilled to find the new Fruit Bars at my local Trader Joe’s.

Made with just fruit (my favorite the Apple & Mango has just that as ingredients… JUST apples and mangoes) these bars are not only gluten-free, but vegan and raw. They also have no additives, no preservatives, no synthetic colors or artificial flavors.

The other yummy flavors they come in are: Apple & Banana, Apple & Coconut, and Apple & Strawberry.

Best yet… they are only .99 cents per bar!

It’s kinda hard to lug around apples and mangoes in my teeny-tiny purse, so these Fruit Bars do the trick and let me have my fruits – and purse space too! Packed with 2-3 grams of fiber and only 90 calories per bar these are the perfect choice for BeFreeForMe’s Friday Favorite! Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: The Good Bean Bar

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

This week’s BeFreeForMe Friday Favorite is awarded to a bar that I, literally, just stumbled across.

The Good Bean Bar.

On a recent trip to New York City, I made a quick trip to a Whole Foods Market in the Chelsea section to grab a few “things” (o.k. …  I had to grab a few gluten-free bars to eat in the taxi rides between meetings to hold me over before the next meal).

And what a delight when I found these fruit, and NO nut bars being sampled at the store. Not only did I get a chance to try all three delicious flavors, including Chocolate Berry, Fruit & Seed Trail Mix, and Apricot Coconut, but I also discovered a new favorite bar.

And you all know about my love affair with my gluten-free bars!

The Good Bean Bars are tasty, have only 130 calories per bar, are super-filling, and are free of GMO’s, gluten and nuts. They also have 5 grams of protein and support fair-trade.

The best part about these bars are that they are made from chick peas! Healthy and delicious… my two favorite combos.

So Congratulations! All the healthy benefits and making my taxi cab rides in NYC so absolutely delicious are the reasons why these week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to The Good Bean Bars.

Friday Favorite: NuGo Slim Bars… Diabetic Friendly & Gluten-Free

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

I love chocolate. But unfortunately chocolate is one of those things on my “only eat once in a while” list, especially when I am watching what I eat.

That is why I was so excited when NuGo came out with their Slim Bars. These bars that are made with real dark chocolate, have almost no sugar and contain no Maltitol or artificial sweeteners. Diabetic friendly, gluten-free and only 2-grams of sugar (which comes from the real dark chocolate) these bars are delicious and perfect for celiacs and diabetics.

NuGo Slim Bars, which are this week’s Friday Favorite pick on, are each packed with 15 grams of protein and 9-10 grams of fiber – so they are a perfect mid-day snack. They come in three great flavors – Brownie Crunch (my favorite), Raspberry Truffle and Roasted Peanut.

With NuGo Slim Bars I can have my chocolate… and enjoy every single delicious bite…. Guilt free!
