Just a quick note to let y'all know that I haven't dropped off the blog. Quite the opposite, actually. I went to the FoodBloogForum Conference at Disney World in Orlando over St. Patrick's Day Weekend and I was so inspired. I have so many great ideas for this blog and my other blog, Scoops of Sunshine.
There has been some behind the scenes work going on for both of the blogs and I have several posts in the works, including a recap of FoodBlogForum Orlando.
In the meantime, I wanted to share a quick product review of these strawberry cereal bars from Barbara's Bakery(affiliate link).
One of the main things we struggle with is having easy, portable, and
Porphyria-friendly snacks for Tara so that she can grab them for work or
have something quick at home.
That's why I was pretty happy when I saw these bars and checked out the ingredients. Most importantly, it has no soy. I got so excited about a soy free "grain" product that I initially overlooked the slightly less than stellar ingredients like red cabbage and canola oil.
They can be a little hard to find. Only one of my local grocery stores carry the strawberry bars. Whole Foods carries a few different flavors, but that's not always convenient for everyone.
On a final note, Barbara's Bakery has several different type of bars, some of which contain soy, so be careful if you are strictly avoiding it.
TCV Quick notes
Pros: Portable, good amount of carbs, low fat, low protein, quick, convenient, dairy free, soy free, tastes good
Cons: Has a few iffy ingredients, can be hard to find.
Verdict: I would definitely buy these again.
Have you tried these bars?
