Gnu Bar Review & Giveaway

Gnu Bar Review

Gnu Foods contacted me a week ago to ask if I would be interested in reviewing their bars. I haven't tried Gnu bars before so I was interested to see if I'd like them.

Gnu bar, made from natural ingredients, packs a whopping 12 grams of fiber per 130-140 calorie bar, which comes out to around 50% of the daily fiber. The bars come in nine different flavors, and three new dessert-inspired flavors (blueberry cobbler, blondie, and carrot cake) that were recently added to the line up.

Gnu Bar Review

What I liked the most was the chewy, moist, and dense texture of the baked bars. The flavors that I've tried were all delicious and weren't overwhelmed by any one ingredient. The sugar content of the bars ranges from 7-11 grams, while the fat ranges from 3-5 grams.

I admit that I was skeptical that these bars would actually keep me full; typically, I respond better to protein and fat for staying satiated than fiber. Fortunately, I'm glad to eat my words on this one. The bars do a great job keeping you full without feeling bloated.



Giveaway Details

Up for grabs is a 16-pack of Gnu Bars, flavor of your choice, provided by Gnu Bar. Here's how to win:


Winner will be chosen on Friday, June 8th. This giveaway is open to US residents only.

If you're interested in trying Gnu Bars right away, you can buy a customized 5-pack for $7.95 with free shipping. The bars retail for $1.99 individually so that's a pretty good deal. Sampler pack info.

  15. The espresso chip sounds like it would be the perfect mid-afternoon pick me up to fight off that 3 pm blood sugar crash.

  23. I'd love to try the Espresso Chip flavor. Usually I tend to gravitate towards the fruitier flavors, but this sounds awesome! Also, I've been looking for something to replace my daily morning coffees (because it's hurting my body...and my wallet!) and this looks like it'll do just the trick!
