Breakfast On The Run
Gluten Free Breakfast Bars by Glutino
Are you in need of breakfast on the run?
Well Glutino has been thinking about those of you who always have to rush out of the house without breakfast in the morning even if you have food allergies. Glutino's Breakfast Bars are completely gluten free. In fact, there are no milk or dairy products listed in the ingredients list. Better yet, each bar only racks up a mere 130 calories.
Glutino Breakfast Bars remind me of oatmeal bars and other breakfast finger foods. They taste so good that you'd hardly even guess they were gluten free. The bars themselves are quite tasty and you can get them in 3 flavors - including apple, blueberry and chocolate. Chocolate seems a bit decadent for breakfast, but hey why not treat yourself once in a while? /p>
My only serious complaint is that the bars themselves are quite small. From the size of the box and the individual packages inside, I expected a bigger bar. Such was not the case, and I was still quite hungry after eating one. My other beef (although less serious) is the price. While all things gluten free tend to come with a slightly higher price tag, I found this product to be more costly than I would have expected even from a natural allergy-sensitive product.
These little bars pack a reasonable amount of nutrition, although very little in the way of protein, so if you are looking for a breakfast alternative that will give you more oomph to get you through the morning, Glutino's bars may fall a bit short. You will get a day's allowance of Vitamin C though and a couple of grams of fiber out of just one bar. Having said that, these breakfast bars will get you through your initial munchies on the way to work, and keep you going until you can get to the cafeteria or local food concourse to buy yourself something a bit more substantial.
Glutino Breakfast Bars are not suitable for those with corn allergy, or if you have life-threatening allergies to nuts or soy.
