For Moms, Moms-to-be, and Toddlers +
Finding snack foods can be tough. Especially when you have food allergies. Whether it be for ourselves or our children, we want something that is going to be healthy, tasty, and satisfying. This however can be pretty tough when cutting dairy, wheat, and/or nuts out of the equation since these foods are generally pretty bland and can be difficult to scarf down.
Well thanks to Enjoy Life and their Baked Chewy Bars, giving our kids (or ourselves) a quick and healthy snack is easier, and more delicious than ever. Free from the 8 most common allergens, these soft and mouth-watering bars are now even better for you thanks to their new formulation with ancient grains.
The Product: The Baked Chewy Bars by Enjoy Life are not only tasty and convenient on-the-go snack bars, they are also good for you! Full of healthy ingredients and free from the 8 most common allergens including wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish, and shellfish, these bars can be enjoyed by anyone any time of day!
Available in 4 flavors including Sunbutter Crunch, Caramel Apple, Mixed Berry, and Cocoa Loco, there is a bar for every mood. And as of recently, these bars are more delicious than ever thanks to the additional chocolate chips in the Cocoa Loco bar and the ancient grains included in the others.
Nutrition-Wise: Enjoy Life has made it their mission to create snacks for everyone – especially those with allergies and/or food intolerances. The 8 most common allergens are wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish. Since these foods account for 90% of all allergic reactions in the United States, Baked Chewy Bars are created without them. They are also free of sulfites, another common food allergy (that is most often used as a preservative in wine [to prevent spoilage and oxidation], dried fruits, and dried potatoes.
Unlike most manufacturers of gluten-free and other allergen-free products who use “replacement” ingredients that lack nutritional value, Enjoy Life makes it a point to use nutrient-dense and flavor-rich grains and sweeteners, as well as natural extracts instead of the artificial stuff, to lock-in freshness and extend shelf life. Moreover, many of the ingredients found in these snacks are certified organic, and all are considered non-GMO, kosher, and free of all common allergens.
In a “portion controlled” 1 oz serving size, these bars are surprisingly satisfying while still being easy on the waistline. Ranging between 110 to 120 calories, Baked Chewy Bars are also low in fat and sugar, and contain healthy carbs, fiber, and protein to help keep you full, longer.

Synopsis: Not realizing that I myself had a dairy and gluten intolerance until my 20’s, it was difficult to “adjust” to this new way of eating. And now that I have a son who seems to be taking after me in regards to his food sensitivities, I am more cautious than ever to ensure that the foods I eat, and the foods I give him, are free from these allergens.
For this reason, I understand as much as anyone how hard it can be to find tasty alternatives to your typical snack foods – especially when you are looking for something that is healthy and nutritious. Thankfully, there are companies like Enjoy Life, the makers of Baked Chewy Bars that not only take these allergies in consideration, they make it their mission to develop foods that are completely devoid of them, all while tasting absolutely delicious!
Whether I’m in the mood for something crunchy (Sunbutter Crunch), something sweet (Cocoa Loco and Caramel Apple), or something fruity (Mixed Berry), I can find it in these Chewy bars. And best of all, I can throw them in my purse and eat them on-the-go, since that is what the life of a mother is all about!
