About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.
Despite being gluten free, I love to try new products and am always interested to hear about new places to eat.
I try to help the environment and purchase organic products where possible.

Enjoy :)

Glutino Breakfast Bars Review

11-1019M Breakfast Bars CherryA couple weeks ago, Dominion was clearing out gluten free products - some had close expiry dates but 90% of them were good until the fall or later.

One of the items I picked up was the Glutino Breakfast Bars - they are normally $5.99 a box which is WAY too expensive for me, but for $3.00 - I was willing to try them.

I picked up the Cherry flavour, but they also come in Strawberry, Blueberry and Apple. They are pretty much the same texture as a nutrigrain bar - maybe a little more coating (and less fruit filling), but overall, pretty comparable.

The taste is also pretty good - there is a very slight after-taste with the first bite, but goes away as you keep eating.

I don't think I'd spend $6 on a regular basis for a box of these, but $3.00 is pretty reasonable and I'd purchase them again. In fact, I ordered the blueberry flavour online from Vitacost and am excited to try them!
