Today I am doing a product review of Toosum Healthy Foods Snack Bars.

Review Disclosure 

I was given a free sample of this product in exchange for an honest review.

The Company's Representation

The company provided the following promotional information about their product.
~~We know you’re careful about what you eat at meal times—lots of veggies, healthy protein, complex carbs. But snack time can be tricky because many “healthy” snack bars out there are loaded with sugar and calories or packed with preservatives and other ingredients concocted in a lab, not a kitchen.

So we set out to create a gluten-free, satisfying snack that tastes great and gives you all the healthy benefits you expect from the good foods you put in your body.

Say hello to Toosum!

Each of our delicious 100-calorie snack bars is made with nutrient-dense (and certified gluten-free!) rolled oats, chia seeds, and other delicious ingredients straight from nature, all with benefits that go way beyond their good taste.

Our seriously amazing benefits, crafted just for you:
•Low in sugar and no refined sugars
•Certified gluten-free
•Non-GMO
•No artificial anything
•Gluten-free rolled oats—heart-healthy fiber has been shown to lower cholesterol
•Chia seeds—full of omega-3 fatty acids to help reduce risk of heart disease
•Cashew butter – monounsaturated fat to help improve cardiovascular health
•Chicory root—another protein-packed, fiber-rich ingredient to help your digestive system
•Sunflower seeds—packed with vitamin E and antioxidants

•Plums – a good source of fiber that helps normalize blood glucose levels by slowing the absorption of sugars
•Blueberries—high in powerful antioxidants and vitamin C to help boost the immune system and brain function.
•Greek yogurt—loaded with probiotics to support healthy digestion

    Product Packaging

    I was sent three individual snack bar samples, so they didn't come in their usual box packaging. The snack bars themselves come in a plastic foil-like wrapper. The package describes the flavor of the bar along with a corresponding picture depicting the main ingredients. They are well sealed for freshness.

    Size of Product and Product Properties

    Each bar is 1.07 oz./30 g. and 100 calories.

    Results

    Toosum sells 4 flavors of their healthy snack bars as follow:
    • Blueberry & Greek Yogurt
    • Cherry & Plum
    • Coconut & Banana
    • Cranberry & Acai
    I was given a sample of the first three listed above. Each bar has the same consistency, a soft, chewy bar that is easy to bite and not brittle like some granola bars. They are all slightly sweet, from the added fruits and from brown rice syrup, and cane syrup. The fruit flavors are well rounded with the flavors of rolled oats, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, and cashew butter. Chicory root fiber, sea salt and vanilla are other common ingredients in the bars.


    The bars are surprisingly filling given that they are only 100 calories each. I ate one for breakfast and I wasn't hungry until lunch time. I rarely eat a large breakfast though. These would be a good healthy snack for anyone who doesn't have nut allergies. The appearance of the bars might cause some picky kids to turn up their noses; however. They look like their healthy ingredients, not masked by a chocolate coating like some popular snack bars marketed to children. But if you can get them to try them I think they would like them.

    I would recommend these snack bars for anyone who is looking for a good tasting, and healthy snack bar that is low in calories.
