It's Snack Time with Lola Granola Bars #Giveaway - Ends 10-6
As a mom I try to always make good choices when buying snacks for my family. I'm always checking the packages to see how much sugar is in snacks as well as other contents like fat and unnecessary additives. Oh, and then there's always the whole finding snacks the kids will eat once I have found choices that aren't full of sugar and junk their bodies don't need. The kids each get home from school at a different time, and then they have to wait for my husband to get home from work before they can have dinner. So I like to keep a basket of "good for them" snacks on the counter. This way they aren't coming home every day complaining they are hungry and rooting around the refrigerator and cabinets in search of something to tide them over until supper. I also try to give them a variety of choices because I know they each have their own likes and dislikes when it comes to flavors. That's one of the reasons I really liked the Lola Granola Bars. They are not only good for them, but they also come in five different combinations.
The Enzo (Almonds and Cashews): GF Oats, Honey, Flax Seed Meal, Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, Shredded Coconut, Cashews, Coconut Oil, Flax Seeds, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon.
The Lola (Almonds and Cranberries): GF Oats, Honey, Flax Seed Meal, Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, Shredded Coconut, Dried Cranberries (Cranberries, Pure Cane Sugar, Sunflower Oil), Coconut Oil, Flax Seeds, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon.
The Nathan (Blueberries and Almonds): GF Oats, Honey, Flax Seed Meal, Sunflower Seeds, Shredded Coconut, Dried Cultivated Blueberries (pure cane sugar, sunflower oil), Almond, Coconut Oil, Flax Seeds, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon.
The Ruby (Cranberries): GF Oats, Honey, Flax Seed Meal, Sunflower Seeds, Shredded Coconut, Dried Cranberries (Cranberries, Pure Cane Sugar, Sunflower Oil), Coconut Oil, Flax Seeds, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon.
This gives them options with or without nuts/berries or a combination of them. I personally like the almonds and cashews followed by the cranberries bar. They are just the right size for slipping in my purse for gymnastics night too. My daughter can eat a bar on the way to practice and she doesn't get super cranky because she has to wait a little later for dinner!
Lola Granola Bars were created by Mary Molina when her family hit hard times. They were struggling to provide for their 4 young children, and were relying on public assistance and food banks. Her husband Ernie was eating junk food to save money. So Mary made him nutritious granola bars to save money, making sure they were gluten and soy free due to her children's allergies, and he loved them! The kids loved the bars, and so did Ernie’s coworkers, who asked to buy some. Lola Granola Bars was born. Lola Granola Bars have an MSRP of $1.99. Lola Granola Bars are made in small batches at their upstate New York facility, a member of Pride of New York, and support local food anti-hunger programs.
