Bars from Freedom Foods - Product Review

After too many experiences when I have found myself stuck in an airport, or in a location that is nowhere near suitable food, or even just in a car and stopping at a rest stop, and not having anything to eat, I always - I repeat always - bring snacks and breakfast when I travel. Often I choose to bring instant gluten-free oatmeal along on trips. It can be made with the water from the coffee maker in a hotel room, but these oat bars that Freedom Foods sent me to try are a great alternative:

They are top-8 allergen-free and sesame-free, gluten-free, and low in sugar. In addition to the cranberries and seeds variety that you see above (and what I tried below), they come in chia with apricot and apple cinnamon flavors. I love that they are low in sugar (just 6 grams per bar).

And these are no wimpy bars. That's a 6-inch plate the bar is sitting on. I don't think I will still be hungry afterwards. 

The real test, of course, is how it tastes. I love love love these bars. It tastes the way a breakfast bar or a low-sugar snack bar should. Just plain good.

I can't WAIT to find these in stores. There is only ONE flavor of granola bar I can buy in the stores that's sesame, nut, egg and dairy free. I do like making my own granola bars too, but having an easy and quick option is SO helpful!!

Hi, I'm curious to know which granola bar that you currently buy that is free of those allergens. I haven't seemed to find one yet.
