I’m always looking for portable snacks. Snacks to grab on the go, throw into the backpack, add to lunch, stick in the sports bag, and even the “emergency” supply in the car or purse. I want something not too high in sugar, but definitely something high in protein so the hangeries (you know, hungry + angry) stay away.
A new snack of choice is Nature’s Path Organic Love Crunch bars. The three bar choices are a tasty Mixed Roasted Nuts with Flax, my youngest son’s (6 years old) favorite Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter with Quinoa, and my personal favorite Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt with Hemp. I feel comfortable reaching for a Nature’s Path product on the go and straight from the store as the Nature’s Path company is USDA certified organic and non-GMO project verified. All three Love Crunch bars are also gluten free.
The “non-sweet option” is the Mixed Roasted Nuts as it has no chocolate, but it contains almonds, peanuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, and pumpkin, sesame and flax seeds.
The Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt is a cheat for salted carame candy. The protein of almonds, peanuts, cashews, hemp seed, and quinoa take the place of caramel. I’m not saying this replaces candy, but when I get hungry I tend to reach for the sugar and carbs to spike my blood sugar; Love Crunch, in my opinion, is an alternative that is easy and matches the flavors I crave.
My 6 year old’s favorite is Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter. No surprise! This dude is a peanut butter fanatic! This Nature’s Path Love Crunch bar has almonds, peanuts and peanut butter (of course), cashews, and quinoa.
We took the Love Crunch bars with us on a recent stay-cation trip to Canada. These were a great choice as they are portable and taste great so everyone in my family can enjoy them.
Nature’s Path Love Crunch bars are a great treat minus the trick! If you’re looking for a Halloween treat for your child’s teachers or coworkers, they’ll love having a healthier option than candy bars or baked goods.
A single bar is about $2.00. There are also packages of 12, 36, and 72 bars. If you order from Nature’s Path directly they offer FREE shipping on orders over $45 and you can save 10% by setting up recurring delivery.
