For years, I have seen and heard NoGii gluten free snacks. Though the brand was a staple at gluten free expos I frequent, I never actually had the chance to try the products. So, when I was contacted to sample and review their products thru Moms Meet, I didn't have to think twice.
When I received the box sent by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and company, I was astonished! I couldn't believe how generous this company is.
Then something hit me. Are they trying to bribe me with quantity because they lack quality? I suddenly became a bit skeptic. Can you blame me? After all, a good tasting gluten free bar is indeed hard to find in spite of the choices available.
After sorting which products are for my own consumption only (contains ingredients that aren't safe for most of the kids), I decided on tasting the Chocolate Caramel D' Lites. These 1 oz bars were an instant hit with me and Child#1 (who outgrew her peanut allergy). It was really delicious and full of flavor. This little snack has it all - sweet, salty, crunchy, gooey and yes, filling! With just 120 calories and 7 grams of protein, it is definitely a healthy treat.

Next, my daughter and I tried the Peanut Butter & Chocolate Bar. After learning how filling the D'Lites bar is, we figured out that this bar will be perfect as an in between activities meal. With 20 grams of protein per bar, (now I know why it's called High Protein) this bar has become a regular in my summer bag. Just like it's smaller counter part, this bar is really tasty and satisfying. Shhh... even my husband (who's a picky gluten free bar eater) is a big fan. NoGii is now a part of his lunch bag too.
Not a fan of Peanut Butter? NoGii Gluten Free NonGMO bars are also available in these delectable flavors:
- Chocolate Coconut

(A quick note: All the above flavors contain Soy protein)

About my earlier concern about quantity over quality, I have to say the people behind NoGii aren't just generous. They are definitely confident with their products. They know that one can will not grow tired of eating their healthy, gluten free bars. Honestly, they got me, hubby and Child#1 hooked. Even the other kids got curious. They even said that when they outgrew soy or nuts, NoGii will be the first food they will eat.
