NuGo Free Gluten Free Carrot Cake BarNuGo Free Bars are gluten free, soy free and dairy free. I have already reviewed the Dark Chocolate Crunch Bar and Dark Chocolate Trail Mix - both of which I liked. There is also a NuGo Free Gluten Free Carrot Cake Bar, which was begging to be reviewed.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (45 grams)
Calories: 160
Total Fat: 3 grams, 5%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 85 mg, 4%
Carbohydrates: 27 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 9%
Sugar: 13 grams
Protein: 9 grams

My first thought about this bar was that it didn't taste much like carrot cake. It did taste sort of pumpkin-y, which is not a bad thing. The icing was a nice touch, and it wasn't too sweet. I liked the cinnamon and nut flavors, and it actually contains carrots and raisins. This bar, like the others varieties, was quite chewy, but not unpleasantly so.

Each delicious NuGo Free Gluten Free Carrot Cake Bar provides 160 calories, 3 grams of total fat, no saturated, no trans, 12% of the daily value for fiber, 13 grams of sugar, and 9 grams of protein.

The ingredients include, "rice protein crisp (rice protein concentrate and rice flour), crisp rice (rice flour), crystalline fructose, tapioca syrup, walnuts, brown rice syrup, organic agave syrup, chicory root fiber, icing (sugar, invert sugar, tapioca syrup, water, flaxseed oil, salt, microcrystalline cellulose), raisins, rice protein, water, dried carrots, organic acacia gum, cinnamon, natural flavors, baking soda, salt, and almonds."

Like the other bars, a NuGo Free Gluten Free Carrot Cake Bar cost cost just $1.29 and can be purchased at NuGo online. Bottom line: good for pumpkin, not so much for carrot. I may buy this again, but I'll probably go for the Dark Chocolate Trail Mix first.
