Filling All Natural Granola Bars

Disclosure: I received a package of granola bars to facilitate my review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family.

I am always on the lookout out for tasty snacks that are filling and natural. It’s also a bonus if everyone in the family likes them, too! During our homeschooling day we like to take occasional snack breaks, but I need something quick and easy so we can stay on task!

Vermont Nut Free Chocolates

I was introduced to Vermont Nut Free Chocolates and invited to review their TANABAR Granola Bars. Vermont Nut Free Chocolates offer a variety of nut free treats that are hand made from scratch in their own nut free facility. It was founded by the mother of a little boy with peanut allergies. Knowing how dangerous they can be, she wanted to offer snacks that are safe for those with nut allergies.

Although we, personally, don’t have nut allergies, I know many that do. Whenever we take snacks on the go where we will be with others, I try to be sure we don’t have foods with nuts. One of our friends’ son has a reaction just from peanut exposure. He doesn’t have to eat something with peanuts to trigger the reaction. This means if a facility even uses peanuts for other products, they are still not safe for him. So I think it is amazing that Vermont Nut Free Chocolates are completely nut free!

For my review I received a box of Assorted TANABAR Granola Bars. I love that I also received a catalog as well! All the chocolates look so delicious!

TANABAR All Natural Granola Bars

TANABAR are all natural granola bars available in three different flavors – Chocolate Chip, Sweet Raisin, and Triple Berry. Of course, they are also completely nut free. All natural, quick and easy, and available in multiple varieties? Sounds like just what we need!

The first thing I noticed about the TANABAR granola bars are the consistency. I could tell they are hand made and made with rolled oats. I was most impressed by the size! They are thick and, in turn, filling. They have a great texture. They do crumble a bit, but I just made sure the kids were eating them over the table. I prefer this consistency personally!

TANABAR All Natural Granola Bars Review

All three varieties are full of flavor. My personal favorite is the Sweet Raisin, but I really enjoy them all! The kids did as well! I think the boys favored Chocolate Chip, and our daughter favored the Triple Berry, but they all would eat the others and enjoyed them as well. I know this because our preschooler won’t eat anything he doesn’t like!

What I like most of all is that the TANABAR Granola Bars are a snack I can enjoy and feel good about giving to our children as well. They are quick and easy as well as filling – the perfect snacks for our mid-day snack! I am definitely happy with the TANABAR Granola Bars!

    They look delicious although sadly the word natural means nothing in this world of GMOs and toxic cancer-causing pesticides.Imo it’s only natural if it’s organic or non-GMO project verified.

    These look delish,but I always worry about the words Natural or organic… we really know whats in our food

    • Truly? Possibly not. Unless you, personally, grow it and raise the animals, there really is no way to know 100%. There are a lot of misconceptions about a lot of things, though – this included. Many feel if they make it at home they know what’s in it, but you have to know what is truly in each ingredient you put into it. That is a lot like the popular DIY laundry detergent recipe with Borax and Fels Naptha – totally unhealthy and not at all natural, but people think because they made it at home it’s safe.

      We just have to make the best choices we can to keep our families healthy.
