Great Gluten Free Lunch Box Snack

I was driving back from North Jersey today and needed to stop at the Vitamin Shoppe for a few items. It had beem hours since breakfast, and I was hungry. I noticed a little cute gluten free package of something I had never seen before. It was a fruit bar that looked like a large fig newton. It is not a fruit roll up, it is a flaky fruit cobbler..

 It came in a variety of fruit flavors like blueberry, cherry, apple, strawberry, and apricot. I picked up a blueberry fruit bar to tide me over until I could find a place to eat lunch. When I took a bite, it was really good. I mean really good. I went back and bought one of every flavor to take home. I like blueberry best.

They are called Betty Lou's Gluten Free Fruit bars.
 They were $1.29 each and make a perfect gluten free snack for a kid's ( of any age) lunchbox.
 It is made of all natural ingredients and fruit juice.


I looked up the website to find out more information.
