Here at ChopChop we love cooking our own meals and snacks, but sometimes we want grab-and-go snacks, just like everyone else. With so many different brands, flavors, and varieties, it can be hard finding pre-packaged snacks with good-for-you ingredients. The good news is there are plenty of great off-the-shelf snack options for busy families, including Nature’s Bakery fig bars.
All of Nature’s Bakery bars are non-GMO, vegan (dairy and egg Free), soy free, nut free, and certified Kosher (which make them great for kids with food allergies). There are also whole wheat and gluten free bars available. The bars come in flavors such as raspberry, blueberry, pomegranate, lemon, apple-cinnamon, and pumpkin spice.
Nature’s Bakery sent the ChopChop office a box of bars and we tested them out during the week with kids and adults, and they were a hit with both. Here’s what some of us in the ChopChop office had to say:
“When I took 5 high school girls in my car to their lacrosse practice, I brought the fig bars in case they were hungry. I thought they would say no thanks. They were so excited and a few of them had had them before. They ate all the bars I had and wished there were more. The next carpool they asked for them again!”
“My kids loved them. My son who normally doesn’t eat anything with fig thought they were tasty. My daughter loved the fig bar plus no worries for me about her food allergies. Two thumbs up!”
