About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.

Enjoy Life Caramel Apple Bars Review

I picked up a pack of these bars a couple weeks ago at Dominion. I’m always looking for some nutritious grab and go snacks that I can take in my purse or car. The regular price of the bars is about $5 a box, but they were on for 50% off; so I took the leap and tried them.

You can smell the apple part of the bar when you go to take a bite – the caramel is not as distinct. These are sort of a baked-cookie type bar, with a fairly substantial thickness to them. Due to the thickness, they are a little dry – not too bad, but you might want some milk or tea/coffee to pair with it.

The texture wasn’t horrible, but it did have a little grainy feel. There was also a little crunch from the outside.
Taste wise – they were alright. Apple cinnamon taste (I still never tasted the caramel), and not too sweet.

As per most Enjoy Life products, they are free from the most popular allergens making them: Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Fish Free and Shellfish Free (taken from their website). While they are not organic, they are non-GMO which is nice.

Overall, I didn’t LOVE the bars, but they were not too bad. Given they were only $2.50 – it was ok; if they are $5 – I think I would have been more disappointed. Anyone else try other flavours?
