FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, & TODDLERS 3 YEARS+*
THE COMPANY: Foodie Fuel was started by two friends, born on the same day, 188 miles apart. Meeting through Eloise’s sister (who had gone through a yoga training class with Chris), the two quickly realized how much they had in common besides just their birthdates. With both of them growing up in small towns in the rural heartland of America and raised on farm-fresh foods, they had a passion for healthy living and nutrition and a dedication for feeding their kids a healthy diet and teaching them the importance of eating organic. One thing led to another and the two of them began talking about what it would take to produce an organic, gluten-free, snack line.
For ten years, Eloise had actually been making a version of the product that would go on to become Foodie Fuel’s Fuel Snacks, and so decided to whip up a batch for Chris – and she loved it! Experimenting with the original recipe, and spicing it up with some new organic flavors, the two friends worked side-by-side in their kitchens, creating batches for family and friends to try out. Their goal was to make sure that these snacks would appeal to everyone: kids, parents, teenagers and athletes – and they did!
THE PRODUCT: Foodie Fuel are sweet and crunchy snacks designed to help fuel you through your day. Organic, gluten free, low-glycemic, vegan, non-GMO, and non-processed, Foodie Fuel is a truly guilt-free, grab-n-go snack, loaded with carefully selected ingredients that provide steady, sustained energy—whether you’re exercising, studying, working, or just hungry and need a quick, healthy pick-me-up.
With 4 flavors to choose from, including Coconut Vanilla, Butter Toffee, Cinnamon Ginger, and Swiss Chocolate, it’s hard to believe that these snacks are actually good for you!
NUTRITION-WISE: As mentioned, all Foodie Fuel snacks are Organic, gluten free, low-glycemic, vegan and non-GMO. Filled with energizing and healthy ingredients, everything in Foodie Fuel was put there with a purpose – to help their snacks taste delicious and you to feel great! From cinnamon and ginger to lucuma and vanilla, both your body and taste buds will be satisfied without anything artificial or processed to speak of!
Made up of sunflower seeds, coconut sugar, pumpkin seeds, flax and chia seeds, and then a select choice of ingredients depending on the flavor, each 1 oz serving contains around 140 calories, 90 of which come from healthy fats. You will also find around 7 grams of sugar, 5 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.
*Free of most allergens and relatively low in sugar, compared to most “treats” you see on store shelves, Foodie Fuel really is a good way to help power you through your day while also satisfying your sweet tooth. However, they are a bit hard to chew (and if the bag isn’t closed all the way can become “stale” and extra tough and chewy quite quickly – although still safe to eat). For this reason, I wouldn’t recommend them to any child who doesn’t have a full set of teeth.
WHERE TO BUY: You can conveniently buy Foodie Fuel on their Online Store, or to find the retail location that sells Foodie Fuel nearest you, please visit their Store Locator.
PRICE: Bags cost $5.99 each.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Crafted with a unique blend of ingredients to literally help fuel you through your day, you will be amazed that there is no dairy or refined sugars in Foodie Fuel – just clean, natural foods! In fact, you can taste the pureness in each crunchy little bite.
And while I have to admit that I’m a sucker for anything toffee flavored, especially since butter toffee isn’t normally something vegans can eat, each of their 4 yummy flavors has just the right amount of sweetness no matter what you or your kiddos are in the mood for. Plus, the fact that they are cut into bite-sized little squares means you can have as little – or much – as you feel like, and can just save the rest for the next time the craving strikes.
