These bars were part of my gluten-free contingency pack that I took along on my recent trip to Switzerland. They not only made for a portable snack in my carry-on, but also were perfect breakfast supplements when I just wanted something quick and satisfying while on the go. I have long been a fan of Glutino but had never seen this product (or varieties) before. Being a self-confessed chocoholic, I decided to sample the chocolate peanut and chocolate banana varieties.
What’s nice about these bars is that they are small but have a bit of bulk to them. They really reminded me of the chewy granola type bars that you may remember from your school lunch boxes. The bars had a great chocolate taste that was not overly sweet. The hint of peanut or banana was perfectly paired with the chocolate base. The banana was quite possibly the most intriguing and unexpected of the lot. The banana taste was fresh and crisp and how Glutino managed it I do not know – but am definitely not complainingJ. I would definitely recommend picking up a box (or two) to have on hand when you are craving a quick, relatively healthy, sweet snack. You can view Glutino’s entire product portfolio on their Web site.
