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 :)

Zing Chocolate Coconut Bars - Product Review

Winners has a large variety of gluten free goodies. While I don't go that often around these parts, I did stop into a Winners while I was in Toronto.

I came across a pack of 12 Zing Chocolate Coconut Bars for $12.99 - apparently the retail price was $35 - so it seemed like a good deal! Since I was waiting for my mom, I did a quick Google search, and the reviews seemed pretty good so I gave them a try.

The bars are certified gluten free and do not contain soy or dairy. Each bar has 210 calories, 10 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber and 13 grams of sugar.

I really liked the bars. They were soft, not grainy (like some protein rich bars) and had a wonderful combination of chocolate and coconut. If you don't like coconut - you probably wont' like these bars. There is a definite coconut flavour!

These bars keep you full, and make for a quick snack/meal on the run, as well as a sweet treat!

I did look for them at the Winners in the Avalon Mall, but didn't see any. The website lists Whole Foods and Safeway as retailers that carry the products so you can probably get them in some parts of Canada!
