Yes, that’s right, WalMart has gotten into the gluten-free food business. Technically, I’m not sure their Dark Chocolate Granola Bars actually qualify as GRANOLA since they seem to be made of rice crisps, but I’m not complaining. I really, really like these.
So many gluten-free granola bars require bionic jaws to chew them, or teeth of steel to crack into them. These bars are light and happy and sweet, sort of like what I would imagine Rice Krispie treats would be like if you added chocolate flakes.
Five bars come in a box for $2.48 which is about 50 cents less than the least expensive gluten-free snack or granola bars. Unlike the others, these are not “packed with nutrition,” but they have only 100 calories and 2.5 grams of fat. They’re great for a quick sweet tooth fix. Beware, if you eat while driving or on the couch, the chocolate flakes do have a tendency to fall out. You wouldn’t want those on your pants. No, that didn’t happen to me. They fell all over the plate in the photo. I’m just sayin’.
I like these bars a lot and I do recommend them.
