Summary:

A little bit of granola bar, a little bit of energy snack, and a whole lot of tasty. I was delighted after the first cherry-vanilla bite, and completely sold after a I checked the nutrition facts and found out that they are naturally low in sugars!

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 …

Rudi's Gluten Free Snack Bars - Cherry Almond

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.

    My son got a couple of these bars in his Easter Basket this past Spring. I got to finish one of his bars and I couldn’t believe how delish they were. He liked the flavor, but he said they take too long to chew and I thought this was one of the most fulfilling things about eating them. I like them for road trips cause they keep you busy chewing and aren’t real delicate or crumbly. These are the kind of goodies you can toss in your jacket pocket and not worry over.
