Review: Pure Bliss Gluten-Free Products

I love healthy, snacky foods.  I know snacky is not technically a word, as Word and the dictionary just told me, but I am going to use it anyway.  Foods that I can put in my purse for food emergencies (times when I need food NOW) make me happy.  I like my snacky foods to be of some nutritional value so I can save my “junk” food for dessert. 

Pure Bliss Organics makes a nice variety of portable gluten-free snacks.  In addition to their gourmet nuts, there are two varieties of gluten-free energy bar bites.

More about Pure Bliss Organics:

Mission Statement

To produce artisan-quality products from scratch, in small batches, using original recipes. We don’t cut any corners, and you can taste the difference.

To source exclusively organic ingredients for optimum flavor, nutrition and sustainability. Our products are made with organic grains, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, all-natural extracts and minimally-processed sweeteners.

To create a great work environment. Our employees are family, and we strive to create jobs that are challenging, fun, steady and rewarding.

To be environmentally- and socially-conscious in all aspects of our company’s operation. Your purchase helps us support organic agriculture and Food For Life Global, a nonprofit relief organization.

To give first class service to our customers and treat with respect and fairness all individuals and companies that we do business with.

Pure Bliss Organics does offer a number of gluten free products, but not all our products are officially gluten free.

With the exception of Blissful Trails, our organic Gourmet Nuts ARE gluten free.  In the near future, we plan to introduce two new gluten free Energy Bars & Energy Bites.

At this time, our organic Granola and organic Energy Bars & Energy Bites ARE NOT officially gluten free.  The reason for this is that these products contain organic oats, which are commonly grown and processed alongside wheat.  Consequentially, it’s possible that trace amounts of wheat gluten may occasionally spread to the organic oats used in our production.  Since even a small incident of cross-contamination may sicken a person with extreme gluten sensitivity, we recommend such individuals avoid these products.  Those customers who simply wish to cut the gluten out of their diet should enjoy our products, as no wheat is used in anything we make.

I had the pleasure of sampling the new gluten-free energy bar bites.  The bites come in two different varieties:

AppleachiaIngredients: Organic Dates, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Agave, Organic Apple Pieces, Organic Almonds, Organic Flax Meal, Organic Brown Rice Crisps, Organic Walnuts, Organic Apple Powder, Organic Cinnamon, Sea Salt

PB & JIngredients: Organic Dates, Organic Agave, Organic Fresh Ground Peanut Butter, Organic Almonds, Organic Peanuts, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Brown Rice Crisps, Organic Flax Meal, Organic Grape Powder, Sea Salt

I really enjoyed both varieties of energy bar bites.  The PB & J does taste a lot like the old favorite without the bread!  The Appleachia has a wonderfully creative name and a great flavor!  These are snacks that I feel good about eating, as they are good for me.  An added bonus – they won’t melt in my car!  They would make great snacks to pack for school snacks or lunches. 

Pure Bliss Organic products can be found in stores across the US and online
