Behold the Beloved Barney Butter

Oh.My.God.  I have been reading about Barney Butter on various blogs over the past few months and didn’t really think much of it.  I had tried almond butter in the past and while it was good, it didn’t really “do it” for me.  I liked my Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolate Dreams as my “go-to” PB.  But, what put me over the edge into the “I have got to try this” category was a free shipping special that I saw advertised on Hangry Pants a few weeks back.  All I had to do was enter a code and order 2 jars and I got the free shipping.  Since you can’t find this in local stores, at least here in Ohio, I went for it.  Boy, I am NOT sorry in the least!  Now I see what all the fuss is about.  Wow!!  I am in love!!  Not only does this product say “Gluten-Free” on the label, but it has the about the same calories and MORE fiber than the PB I had been eating daily for breakfast.

So, instead of my Dark Chocolate Dreams on my rice cakes in the morning, I have been having the BB with some blueberry fruit spread.  I also had it on a Van’s Wheat Free Waffle yesterday with the blueberry spread for a snack….OMG…that was delightful! 

Verdict…try this if you get a chance.  A little pricey, but a great treat every once in a while if you can afford it (and hide it from the kids or don’t let them try it to start with ;) ).  I don’t have anything bad to say about this stuff at all, except that I wish one of my local stores carried it.  Maybe I can call Raisin Rack & see if they would get it in for me??  Hmmmm……

Product Review: KIND Bar

I have been wanting to try these bars for a while and found a good deal on them on Amazon.com the other day.  I purchased the Almond & Coconut for $10.10/box (8 come in a box).  I signed up for the subscription service (benefits: free shipping and lower price) where they send your shipment on a schedule that you choose (1 month, 2 months, 6 months or when you request it).  If you aren’t ready for them to ship, all you have to do is delay it.  You still get the same benefits & price.

The verdict.  This bar was excellent!  Good texture, a little chewy.  YUM!  Nutritional facts are 190 calories, 4 grams of protein & 4 grams of fiber and 14 grams of fat.  I like this because it is easy to keep in your purse or car for an emergency snack or pick-me-up.  It says “gluten-free” right on it.  It is also dairy-free and trans-fat free.  Definitely good for traveling on the road for a food that doesn’t require any kind of preparation or refrigeration.  I will be keeping these on hand, for sure.  I am interested in trying some of the other flavors like:  the fruit & nut bars with yogurt.  ***I do want to point out that there is at least 1 flavor that is NOT gluten-free…it has oat bran & whole wheat in it.  It is Oat Bran & Banana flavor, I believe. 

I am on a huge kick with products that are labeling their products “Gluten-Free”.  It makes my life easier.  I don’t have to decipher labels or call companies.  So, be on the lookout for more reviews of products that are labeled “Gluten-Free”.
