Gluten-free Lunch Box Spotlight: Do More Bars

A couple of weeks back I began a series on the Gluten Free Lunch Box.  Today the spotlight is on Do More Bars.  These bars are a healthier gourmet version of the traditional crispy rice treats that you make at home, or the pre-packaged variety that aren’t gluten-free.

The bars are made in a facility that uses peanuts, tree nuts, milk, soy, corn and wheat products. 

The utmost care and best practices are used to prevent cross-contamination.  Bars have been gluten tested with results less than 10 ppm gluten.

These bars were great!  What a unique twist on an old favorite!  I loved the flavor combinations of all of the bars, and while they do have a “grown-up” twist, they aren’t “too gourmet” for kids to enjoy.  I think my favorite of all five bars has to be the Cherry Almond.  Each bar is priced at $1.59 or $8.94 for a box of 6.  The bars can be purchased right from the website.  They can also be found in select locations across the US.  These bars make the perfect addition to the school lunch box or snack.  If you are an adult, no worries!  Toss these bars into your purse, gym bag or store a couple in your desk to help power you through that afternoon slump.

*These bars were sent to me free of charge for review purposes.  The thoughts and opinions shared here are mine and have not been influenced by anyone or anything.

    I ordered the 12 bar variety pack to try them out. They are very tasty. My favorite is the Orange-Cranberry-Pecan. The pack did not include the Cherry-Almond, so I have yet try it.
