The best allergy-free bars
on January 22, 2018
**Original review Jan 2018: I think these bars are my favorite food. I’ve eaten one a day ever since I discovered them about four years ago - that’s a whole lot of bars. Now I get them on subscribe & save.
I admit they are expensive for the measly five bars you get per box. They also might be an acquired taste. These are a very dense flourless brownie with mini chocolate chips inside. They aren’t like a crumbly cake bar or a chewy brownie bar.
I find that they satisfy my sweet tooth while still keeping me full like one of those fancy protein bars. Most importantly, unlike most granola bars, these cause me no digestive issues whatsoever.
My kids (ages 7 and 3 years) love these bars, too. It’s nice to feed them a granola bar they love that isn’t full of junk ingredients.
These are very expensive, so I have tried many different kinds of brownie bars. Other brands are no comparison. However, Aldi makes a generic version of the Enjoy Life brand that they call “live G free”. They make a generic Cocoa Loco that is almost exactly the same. So my tip to you is to stop by Aldi if you have one nearby.
**UPDATE May 2018: Enjoy Life has changed these bars as of 2018. The new ones are in the blue boxes as shown in the product photos.
Overall, I have to say that people will probably prefer the new bars. However, they taste noticeably difference from the old bars. It took me a while to get used to the new taste but I think I do like it.
The best change is that they got rid of the oversized box. However, while the new blue box is pretty, it is hard to read the white-on-blue text.
The ingredient list is changed, but not significantly. The nutrition info is basically the same, except they’re no longer adding in extra vitamins and minerals. The main change is that although the bars remain 1.15 oz, they are noticeably bigger. They’re bigger because theyre lighter and fluffier now.
