It’s peanut butter jelly time!
I’m always looking for new bars to add to my afternoon snack rotation. Of course, they need to be gluten-free. And there is a lot of BAD gluten-free bars on the market. So I jumped at the chance to try a new to me bar, Grab the Gold, as a blogger for the Online Nourished Fest.
These bars are great! Seriously.
I was a little skeptical because, as I said, I have had a lot of bad bars but Grab the Gold has made it into my afternoon snack rotation. (Hang around to the end, and I’ll have a code for you to try them!)
The bars are round and heavy, kind of like a hockey puck, with 193 calories and 11 grams of protein each. They are the perfect size for a snack. They also work well as a pre-run bar when I have to get out early in the morning.
My first thought when I opened the package was you can really smell the peanut butter! The actual PB flavor is perfect. It’s not overwhelming. The little bits of cranberries give you the jelly flavor. They balance each other out well. There is also a chocolate peanut butter bar, which is great when you want a hit of chocolate but don’t want to shovel an entire Reese’s bar in your mouth.
My only issue with the bars is a texture issue. And it’s totally me. I am a texture person, and there are little chunks in the bar. I think it’s the oatmeal. I haven’t quite figured out what it is. It doesn’t bother me enough not to eat the bars, though.
They also sent me an immune boost shot. I was a little hesitant to try because I saw it has stevia in it. My tastebuds are very sensitive to stevia in some products. Luckily for me, this product did not have the bad stevia taste! It is a berry flavor and quite tasty! I don’t know if it actually boosts my immunity, but it does have elderberry, vitamin C, echinacea, and zinc, so it can’t be bad.
