Betsy’s Bar None Review: Allergen Friendly Bars and a Rebrand Worth Noting

For Moms, Moms-To-Be & Toddlers 2 Years+*

I originally did a review back for Betsy’s Best Bar None back in 2015, and was thoroughly impressed by both their nutritional profile and taste. Fast-forward three years, and the company has undergone a rebrand, with better packaging and better tasting bars than ever before! Betsy’s Bar None bars are the perfect alternative for those with dietary restrictions, allergies or those looking for lasting energy on-the-go.

THE PRODUCT:

Betsy’s Bar None was founded by Betsy Langton in 2011 in Portland, Oregon with the goal of “offering a wholesome, allergen-free product that is, above all, delicious and nutritious.” 100% Organic, Vegan, Gluten-free, Soy-free, Nut-free, Grain-free and Paleo, these allergen-free bars have always carried some of the cleanest, nutrient-dense ingredients on the market.

Having recently undergone a rebrand, these reformulated and repackaged bars are now healthier and better tasting than ever! They are also made from 95% ingredients sourced from the North American continent, continuing their foundational commitment to local farmers and the community. Betsy’s Bar None are now completely allergen-free, as well (where before they were produced in a facility that contained some of the most common allergens).

Available in 5 delicious and innovate flavors including Anise, Cinnamon Cardamom, Dark Chocolate Chip, Lemon Coconut and Peppermint Chocolate Chip, all of Betsy’s Bar None products give you the perfect balance of flavor and contain just the right amount of substance and bite.

THE COMPANY:

Inspired to start her own small business after completing an internship as a Nurse Practitioner with the Oregon Department of Corrections, Betsy was troubled by a lack of support for the convicted. By combining her mission to support prisoners in their adjustment after release with her vision to share quality snacks, a socially conscious business came to life. Betsy’s Bar None was created to help bring awareness to the process of Restorative Justice [in which prisoners and parolees are taught to successfully reenter society], enabling the company to continuously donate a percentage of their profits to the cause. Known as the Insight Prison Project, Betsy’s Bar None continues to donate funds to this organization.

NUTRITION-WISE:

Betsy’s Bar None products are 100% Organic, Vegan, Gluten-free, Soy-free, Nut-free, and Grain-free and do not contain any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Sourced from 95% local ingredients, the new formulations are now completely allergen-friendly and taste better than ever!

Made out of a simple compilation of seeds, including hemp, pumpkin, sunflower, chia and flax, each bar contains 5 grams of protein, offering a balanced supply of the 9 essential amino acids. They also contain around 200 calories, 11-12 grams of which come from healthy fats, 4-5 grams of fiber and 14 grams of natural date sugar. Furthermore, Betsy’s Best None does not add any additional rice, soy, or pea protein isolates, and does not contain any fillers, such as oats.

*Betsy’s Bar None really are great for kids and adults of all ages. Free of almost every allergen (except coconut), these bars contain a healthy mix of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. They are also easy to chew. And while they do contain quite a bit of sugar, it is almost completely from dates, so they don’t affect the body they same way that other processed sugars do.

With that said, I personally wouldn’t want to give my really little one any of the chocolate flavors [or even a full bar for that matter] because I don’t think they need to be introduced to so much sugar and sweets at such a young age. However, they are definitely better than any other chocolate bar you would typically buy and a piece here or there would actually make a nice treat for a toddler – as opposed to your typical chocolate bar, cookie, cupcake, etc.

WHERE TO BUY:

You can conveniently purchase Betsy’s Bar None directly from their Online Store, or please visit their Store Locator for the location that sells them nearest you.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

With so many bars out there, I’ve got to admit that there are few brands that really impress me these days. In order for a brand to stand out I’m looking for something that tastes great, is gluten and dairy-free, doesn’t contain tons of sugar, contains organic ingredients, has a good nutritional profile, and doesn’t have any artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors.

After trying Betsy’s Bar None, I’ll be the first to say that they pass the test! Not only are these bars full of great ingredients, they really do taste amazing! With 5 delicious flavors to choose from, they all have a slightly roasted and nutty taste [without containing any nuts at all] due to their addition of various seeds, are just the right amount of sweet (thanks to their use of dates), and contain a nice kick of herbs and/or spices to give you the perfect rounded-flavor that you won’t find in many other bars.

Whether you are looking for something chocolaty or slightly sweet, Betsy’s Bar None has a bar that will satisfy your taste buds. Plus, they are extremely satiating since they contain a healthy mix of fats, protein, and fiber and will please the most hungry of bellies. Or, you can just break off a piece or two to help curb your craving and save the rest for the next time you want a bite of something tasty.

Try any or all of Betsy’s Bar None today and find out for yourself how delicious these allergen-friendly bars can be! Because it’s those small steps that make healthy living a lifestyle – so why not take one today?!
