Elisabeth Hasselbeck's nogii bars are delicious!

I was lucky enough to be sent samples of Elisabeth Hasselbeck's gluten free nogii bars plus her soon-to-be-released men's nogii bar!

Over the years, I have tried out practically every gluten free nutrition bar on the market from Larabar's to thinkThin bars and everything in-between.  Although, I did enjoy some of these bars, I always felt like each bar was lacking in some way - whether there was barely any protein in the bar, it was made of mostly artificial ingredients, or it just didn't provide the nutrients I needed.

So, you can imagine how thrilled I was when I heard about the nogii bar.  It is high in protein (20 grams), I recognize every ingredient on the label, and it is nutrient dense - containing 10% Iron and 10% Calcium!

However, the best part is that the nogii bar is delicious and filling!  It has a strong "peanutty" taste, a chocolate-coated bottom with chocolate drizzled over the top!  It is sweet, but not too sweet and tasted more like a dessert than a healthy nutrition bar.  And unlike many of the gluten free bars on the market that leave you starving soon after eating, this kept me satisfied for several hours afterward.

Living on a gluten free diet, we have all been in situations where we need to be out the entire day and know that there will be no place to buy gluten free food and we can't exactly be carrying around a cooler containing our gluten free meals or taking the time to prepare a gluten free meal.

In the past, I have carried around other gluten free bars that have left me with a headache and feeling faint by the end of the day - not to mention absolutely starving as if I had been fasting all day!  Now, I will be sure to carry around the nogii bar, so that I have the energy to complete a busy day!

I was also able to sample the Men's nogii bar.  This bar contains 30 grams of protein and 15% Calcium and Iron.  It was also delicious!

Currently, the only bar available is the Peanut Butter & Chocolate All-Natural High Protein nogii Bar.  You can purchase it at Ms. Celiac's Amazon Marketplace or at Smoothie King locations.

Coming soon you will also be able to purchase the Men's Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Crisp All-Natural Super Protein nogii Bar and the nut-free nogii Kids Bar.
