On the front of the Betty Lou’s Fruit Bar packaging, it says “Tastes Like a Piece of Pie!” Yes, that is indeed true. I have tried (months ago) both the Blueberry and the Apple flavors, and they are just bursting with flavor. They look more like a Fig Newton on steroids (see photo), but don’t taste like them.
On the back of the packaging they refer to the crust as flaky – I’m not really getting that, but it’s okay. The crust is hearty and does not overpower the filling. It’s a great balance.
Here are the stats (based on the blueberry): Calories 190; Total Carbs 41. But the flavor is worth it, especially whereas it contains none of the 8 major allergens defined by the FDA, which includes gluten, soy, and nuts, and these guys are both Non-GMO and vegan. Honestly, I’d never have known the latter if I hadn’t read it.
If you are on the road or even at home and you want something quick and delicious to eat, go for one of these. I’ve got an Apple Cinnamon and a Strawberry up for grabs, as well as two PB&J Bars: Strawberry and Blueberry. Just leave a comment below letting me know which kind and flavor you’d like and we’ll get you hooked up. Remember, US residents only, please. Shipping ain’t cheap!
