Food Allergy Consumer Product Review: Enjoy Life Foods Chewy Bars

A few months ago, I was very excited to have the opportunity to try the new and improved Enjoy Life Foods Chewy Bars. Enjoy Life Foods is really in a category of its own. It is a top notch company. Their products are free of the 8 most common allergens as defined by the US. Food and Drug Administration and are also made without casein, potato, sesame and sulfites. I love their labeling, and I love knowing that Enjoy Life is a brand in which I can have faith. There are not many of those. In a pinch, I can run to the local grocery store, grab an ELF product and we're good to go. It's absolutely fantastic!

Now, on to the review. My two sons and I thoroughly enjoyed trying the Enjoy Life Chewy Bars. To give you perspective, my older son is now 13 and is a middle schooler. He has no food allergies. My younger son is 10 years old now, still in elementary school, and has life threatening allergies to peanuts and tree nuts. We have a "peanut-free", "nut-free" home, and I do not buy any food that is made in a facility where nuts or peanuts are present. All three of us thought the chewy bars were excellent.

My older son and I liked the SunButter crunch chewy bars best. We thought they were irresistible! That is really saying something, because before I tried Enjoy Life's SunButter crunch bars, I really wasn't that crazy over SunButter. Now, I LOVE that flavor! My younger son liked the mixed berry chewy bars best. All of us were eager to have another bar, and sad when the last bar was gone! Not only were the bars scrumptious, they were satisfying too, but not heavy. Well done, Enjoy Life! Another home run!

FAB Review
Dedicated facility:
Yes. Dedicated gluten- and nut-free. (Read more about ELF's bakery.)
Appearance: Nice packaging. Easy to open!
Taste: We tried 4 flavors: mixed berry, SunButter crunch, cocoa loco & caramel apple. All excellent!
Texture: Chewy, bendy(!), fresh
Convenience: Available at many supermarkets around the U.S. and online. You can purchase directly from Enjoy Life a box of 5 bars for $4.49 directly from Enjoy Life Foods. They also sell 6 boxes for $24.44.
Buy again? Definitely! You can't beat the quality, taste, and convenience.

Thank you to Enjoy Life Foods for giving me the opportunity to try the chewy bars and share our thoughts on them!
