Recommended Yummy Goodness

I'm a sucker for oaty and nutty granola type bars although I can go for months without ever missing them. THIS, however, is a different story. It's all nuts...and a little bit of sweetness. Think of it like a peanut or almond brittle that won't --1. drive your blood sugar through to the next county and ---2. cut your gums into tiny shreds. The latter is really the big reason why brittle doesn't ever get eaten aside from one bite. Ouch!

Anyway, it's also not a chemist's wet dream. The simple ingredient list: Nuts (peanuts and/or almonds depending upon the variety), sunflower seeds, sugar, corn syrup, salt, and almond flour. That's it.

I bought 'em a couple of weeks ago when Smith's was having a "Buy General Mills crap for a $1.00 days". A buck a box? Heck, I thought, I'll try 'em. So, yeah, they were good. I went back and bought four more boxes. Now I'm lamenting the fact that I didn't buy 10.

Mmmmmmm, thanks, those look good! I'm always having trouble finding snack bars I can eat but those look like they have no gluten. Now to see if the Pickiest Kids in the World will eat them ;)

Hmmm, That is the one reason I don't eat nutty things, the 12 hours of trying to get the shards out of my teeth with floss sticks.

Glad you enjoyed the bars, but could you please refrain from calling them "General Mills crap"? :-)

Also, they're a good source of protein for those mid-afternoon munchies.
