For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 1 YEAR+*
Finding a bar that really stands out from the rest is not easy these days due to the fact that there are 100s of different brands, flavors, etc. on the market. And with each one claiming to be better than the next in either taste and/or quality of ingredients, it really just comes down to personal preference in the end and whether or not you “care” how healthy and nutritious the bar actually is compared to the flavor profile.
Well after trying the complete line from Betsy’s Best Bar None, I can honestly say that not only do these bars contain some of the cleanest, healthiest [not to mention allergen-friendly] ingredients you can buy, they also taste amazing, making them truly stand out from the others.
THE PRODUCT: Betsy’s Best 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, and grain-free, these allergen-friendly bars carry some of the cleanest, nutrient-dense ingredients on the market.
Inspired to start her own small business after completing an internship with the Oregon Department of Corrections, Betsy created Betsy’s Best Bar None 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.
Available in 7 delicious and innovate flavors including Lemon Coconut, Cinnamon Cardamom, Dark Chocolate Chip, Chili Chocolate Chip, Peppermint Chocolate Chip, Savory Rosemary and Orange Poppyseed, all of Betsy’s Best Bar None products give you the perfect balance of flavor and contain just the right amount of substance and bite. No matter if you are looking for something savory or sweet, Betsy’s Best Bar None has a bar for you.
NUTRITION-WISE: Betsy’s Best 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.
Made out of a simple compilation of seeds, including hemp, pumpkin, sunflower, chia and flax, each bar contains 10g of protein, offering a balanced supply of the 9 essential amino acids. They also contain around 280 calories, 160 of which come from healthy fats, 4 grams of fiber and 16 grams of sugar. Furthermore, Betsy’s Best Bar None does not add any additional rice, soy, or pea protein isolates, and does not contain any fillers, such as oats.
Although Betsy’s Best Bar None products are made in a facility that processes wheat, soy, dairy and nut products, there is a strict adherence to cleanliness and monitoring of the environment during production to ensure that they meet the requirements of certifying agencies: Gluten-Free, vegan, kosher and organic.
*Betsy’s Best 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 mainly from low-glycemic coconut sugar, which doesn’t affect the body they same way that other 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.
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 Best Bar None, I’ll be the first to say that they pass the test! Not only are these bars great for you, they really do taste amazing! With 7 delicious and innovate flavors to choose from, they all have a slightly roasted and nutty taste [without containing any nuts at all] thanks to the addition of hemp seeds and sunflower seed butter, are just the right amount of sweet (thanks to low-glycemic coconut sugar), 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 sweet or something savory, Betsy’s Best Bar None has a bar that will satisfy your taste buds. Plus, they are extremely satiating since they contain a healthy mix of healthy 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.
