Let’s face it, I review a lot of bars. But I only post about the ones that we like (yes, there are actually more!), and I reserve my raves for bars that we truly love …
Thus far, they’ve only released one flavor of Rudi’s Gluten Free snack bars, Cherry Almond, but I’m expecting many more to emerge as things things are scrumptious!
The earthy almond and oat goodness popped with cherry-vanilla flavor (there were dried cranberries in there, too, but the flavor remained true to the cherries). Brown rice crisps added nice texture and helped to marry the whole thing into a wonderful granola meets energy bar snack.
But the pièce de résistance is that these babies are perfectly sweet, and have only have 3 grams of sugars per bar! I literally did a double take on both the ingredients and the nutrition facts. They are modestly sized – not hefty, but not puny either – and weigh in at just 120 calories. Yet just one of these Rudi’s Gluten Free snack bars totally cured my sweets craving, and is free of alternative sweeteners – just a little honey and brown rice syrup.
Dietary Notes: By ingredients, Rudi’s Gluten Free Snack Bars are dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, soy-free, and vegetarian (they do contain honey, so they aren’t strictly vegan). Nonetheless, check with the company on their manufacturing processes for all varieties if potential allergen cross-contamination is an issue for you. Processes and labeling are subject to change at any time for any company / product.
