18 Rabbits & Reasons to Love Granola & Giveaway

It’s no secret that I’ve been on a granola kick. Granola bars have always been a staple in my pantry for anytime of the day. But no two granola bars are made the same. You’ve seen the ones that are practically mini candy bars, high in fat and sugar. If you’re looking for a good option that won’t break your calorie bank, you should take a closer look at how your favorite bars stack up nutritionally. I’ll give a big yuck to high fructose corn syrup or impossible to pronounce ingredients. And I’m not looking for a snack that has me hungry 15 minutes after I’m done eating it.

The kind folks over at 18 Rabbits sent me a nomnom package of their amazefest granola bars to try out. Not sure if it’s because I’m pregnant or just love kid’s snacks, but they also sent over a few of their Bunny Bars.

18 Rabbits mission -> Bring food back to its roots through simple authentic granola & bars.

Survey says: The Haute Diggity Date and Funky Figs & Cherries were my absolute favorite. 18 Rabbits granola bars have a different texture to them. The mixture of the fruit and nuts is perfect, and I’ve yet to meet a nut I don’t like. The taste was simple, fresh and un-processed.

The Deedee Dot Cherry Apricot Bunny Bar was packed with tart flavor. The Bunny Bars have a lighter taste to them. I enjoyed these more in the mornings or late in the day if I wasn’t planning a big workout.

18 Rabbits is also very transparent about their organic nutrients and ingredients. I appreciate their honesty! They clearly list their nutrition labels on their packaging and website.

These Haute Granola & Bars have my vote for a good all-around snack, unless you are looking for a late evening snack. I have never been a fan of eating something with this type of energy/good fat ingredients before going to bed.

With all these rabbits, not to worry, you can get your hands on a tasty sample! 18 Rabbits has generously offered to give ONE lucky reader a goodie pack.
