I have been systematically cutting high-fructose corn syrup from my family’s diet, lately, and wow is it astounding how many places it hides. Goodness. Now, I do a lot of my own baking, so for the most part, I can easily make some of the items that tend to be the worst offenders.
But oh how my children miss Nutrigrain bars. And truthfully, I miss them, too—they’re an easy snack for them to grab, and it’s not something I can easily replicate.
But the organic fru-fru bars tend to cost about $5/box, and I don’t miss them that much.
So I was just poking around on Amazon and found these Nature’s Choice Multigrain Bars on sale. If you sign up for Subscribe & Save, they’re $30.75 for 12 boxes; that’s about $2.56/box, or roughly half what they cost at my supermarket.
Not only are they corn syrup-free, they’re also wheat-free and completely vegan. That makes them an ideal snack for kids with food allergies, too.
Now, which flavor do I order? I’m leaning towards cherry….
