As NFCA’s newest team member, I didn’t know what to expect when I got my first batch of products for a Gluten-Free Hot Products review. I was asked to try the new organic and gluten-free CLIF Kit’s Organic Fruit and Nut Bars. Gluten-free alternatives get a bad rap for having a hard, cardboard taste, but these are far from it. When I bit into Kit’s Organic Fruit and Nut Peanut Butter flavored bar, I got a mouthful of soft, chewy, tasty peanut butter.
With 3 varieties other than Peanut Butter, including Cashew, Chocolate Almond Coconut, and Berry Almond, these gluten-free bars can serve as a great snack-on-the-go. Co-CEO of Clif Bar & Company Kit Crawford took her passion for healthy, organic food and turned it into products for others like her looking to live an active, healthy lifestyle. With her husband Gary Erickson, Kit has worked to create a portfolio of great tasting food for people on the go. My vote? They succeeded.
Containing between 3 and 6 grams of protein, the bars are sure to help keep hunger at bay in between meals. Not only are these bars gluten-free and organic, they are also soy-free and dairy free, making them an excellent option for those with other food intolerances.
CLIF Kit’s Organic Fruit and Nut Bars are set to be available at natural food retailers nationwide in June. Not all CLIF products are gluten-free, so be sure to check the label on all CLIF products before purchasing.
