Gnu Foods Espresso Chip Flavor & Fiber Bar Review

Gnu Foods Espresso Chip Flavor & Fiber BarWhen I stumbled across the Gnu Foods Espresso Chip Flavor & Fiber Bar, it went into my cart right away ... Espresso? Excellent. Chocolate chips? Even better. I like Gnu bars in general, and I couldn't wait to try this new variety. Gnu says, "the Espresso Chip Gnu Bar is a smooth blend of rich, ground coffee with tasty chocolate chips. The bold flavors will excite and delight your taste buds."

I took a bite of the chewy bar. I liked the espresso taste, and the chocolate chips were a nice touch. This was earthier than more candy bar-like bars (e.g. Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Bar), but it was satisfying in its own way. This will join the Gnu Foods Peanut Butter Bar in my go-to Gnu bars.

Each 45-gram Gnu Foods Espresso Chip Flavor & Fiber Bar provides 140 calories, 4 grams of total fat of which 1 gram is saturated (6% and 4% of the daily value), only 35 mg of sodium (1% of the DV), 4 grams of protein and 30 grams of carbohydrates which includes 12 grams of dietary fiber (48% of the DV) and 8 grams of sugar. The ingredients are "entirely natural" and includes Gnu High Fiber Blend (whole rolled oats, organic whole wheat flour, wheat bran, organic kamut, psyllium, flax, millet).

The calorie count is wonderfully reasonable, the amount of fiber totals 1/2 of the daily recommendation for women. At $1.89, it was pricey, but totally worth it.
