Betty Lou’s Review: Some of the Tastiest and Healthiest Snack Foods Around

Betty Lou’s Review: Some of the Tastiest and Healthiest Snack Foods Around

Who doesn’t love a good snack food?! Especially when running around with 3 kids in-tow, sometimes this is all I have time for! I still crave good nutrition though, and is why I love snacks like those from Betty Lou’s!

For Moms, Moms-to-be & Toddlers 2 Years+*

THE PRODUCTS:

Betty Lou’s is known for their great tasting healthy snack foods. With 13 different product lines to choose from, each of which contains up to a dozen+ different flavors, you can find a healthier version of your favorite treat in practically everything Betty Lou’s offers. For instance, these are Betty Lou’s bars that are reminiscent of your favorite treats, only healthier:

  • Angell Bars = chocolate covered candy bar (only Organic, gluten-free and non-GMO).
  • Fruit Bars = slice of pie (that is gluten-free, low-fat, non-GMO and free of the top-8 allergens).
  • Golden Smackers = Snickers-like candy bar (but is much lower in sugar and contains organic milk chocolate, organic cane sugar, and natural milk and whey proteins).

Betty Lou’s also offers other nutritious snacks, including those that are gluten-free, dairy-free, high in healthy fats, and/or are low in calories. So, whether you are looking for a high-protein snack in one of their Nut Butter Balls, a way to get more probiotics in your life via their Probiotic Bites (Chocolate is my favorite!), or want a Fruit Bar that tastes like a slice of pie, then Betty Lou’s has something for you!

NUTRITION-FACTS:

While nutrition facts vary from line to line, you can be sure that Betty Lou’s takes great pride in the ingredients they use and the fillers that they don’t! Free of anything artificial, Betty Lou’s foods are all gluten-free. They also have lines that are Vegan.

*I will say that several of their products do contain quite a bit of sugar, whether that be in the form of fruit juice or other natural sweeteners, so do keep this in mind before allowing your little one to indulge in the full package. Yes, natural sugar is better than processed, but too much [of any kind] is still not good for you. Some of their products also contain dairy, so if you or your child is lactose-intolerant, it is best to look at the labels here, as well.

THE COMPANY:

Although Betty Lou didn't recognize it then, her business had its birth almost 40 years ago.

"I have always believed that there is a connection between what we eat and how we feel.

Everyone wants to feel their best, and when I decided to remove refined sugar from my family's diet over 40 years ago, I began creating recipes that were made with honey and brown rice syrup instead. Children know what they like, and my sons were my very first taste-testers. As I fine-tuned the recipes my boys' friends took notice, and soon I had the most popular yard in the neighborhood! I was like the mom with Kool-Aid(tm) in the TV commercial.

I chose "Just Great Stuff... and Plenty of it!" as our motto because it truly reflects the dedication that we have to the quality of our products. I always use the best, healthiest, cutting edge ingredients because I believe that they taste better and make you feel better.

Today we still make Nut Butter Balls as well as our very popular layered Fruit Bars, Powdered Peanut Butter (with 85% less fat than regular peanut butter!), Low Glycemic Protein Shakes, Cookies and a line of Organic Just Great Stuff Bars that contain interesting, whole food ingredients... like organic cacao nibs, freeze-dried acai and raspberries, goji berries, mangoes, bananas and even freeze-dried spinach, kale and broccoli sprouts.

Every day at Betty Lou's we challenge the notion that healthy, all-natural, gluten-free products have to compromise on taste. We've proven that the opposite can be true! Our delicious products have been made that way from the beginning and it's what we do best!"
