Glenny’s Gluten Free Whole Fruit & Nut Bar

499 glennys cashew barsWhen I opened the little sleeve on this Glenny’s Cashew & Almond Whole Fruit & Nut bar and saw that it was literally packed with nuts, I thought, oh my, this thing is going to break my teeth like those Nature Valley things did. HA! I was really, really wrong.

The consistency was great; each hearty bite was pleasant tasting, slightly sweet, and contained the occasional burst of almond flavor. No nasty crumbling or chipping or any mess at all, so these would be great on road trips while in the car, plane, hotel, whatever.

The ingredients are all natural, contain no soy, and each bar has 140 calories, 7 grams of fat (0 trans fat), 0mg of Cholesterol!, 16g carbs, and 3g protein. Frankly, I’m a little surprised at how little protein is in them since they are mostly nuts.

I purchased this box of 5 bars at WalMart. Like so many gluten-free foods, these are made in Canada (catch up, US!). You can learn more about these (and all the other Glenny’s gluten-free foods) at http://www.glennys.com/products/all-natural-fruit-nut-bars.html
