In addition to Nutridel cookies, there are two varieties of bars that I eat on a very regular basis for snacks. I snack twice a day (sometimes three times if you count dessert). Almost everyday, like clockwork, co-worker Donna and I pull out our 10:30am and 3pm snacks and munch, munch, crunch our way into snack heaven.
So when 18 Rabbits came into my life, I was thrilled. Of the four varieties of bars they offer, two are vegan and two are gluten-free. The vegan bars contain wheat, and the gluten-free bars contain butter, so you can't get both a gluten-free and vegan bar in one, which would be my only complaint. Aside from that, these are the chewiest, most delicious "granola"-type bars I've ever had. They are all chewy, sweet and filling. I really couldn't choose my favorite flavor, because seriously, they are all amazing. I did just pick up a new box of 18 Rabbits Nibble A Sultana bars (in the orange wrapper) at Whole Foods yesterday, so maybe, today, that's my favorite. Bonus points for these bars as The Boyfriend loves them too!
My other go-to snack bar is the Pure Bar. These are raw, organic, gluten-free, vegan and contain nothing artificial at all. Zero, zilch, zip! The creator of The Pure Bar is Veronica, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde who has an amazing bar and an amazing blog too! (Kind of reminds me of Angela, now that I think about it!)
Pure love in a bar:
Warning! These are so good, you may just want to photograph them while driving, but don't. It's very dangerous. And the picture will come out blurry anyway.I love the fact that I can get these from Trader Joe's, I love that they are raw and chocolaty and nutty, and I love (just like the 18 Rabbits bars) that I can actually visually identify the ingredients by looking at the bar.
Try doing that with a Hostess Snowball:
