Who doesn't love rice crispy squares? The sweetness and crunch are such a classic childhood treat -- but let's face it, they're kind of nutritionally void. As parents, we want every bite that goes into our kids' mouths to do them as much good as possible, but in order to even reach our kids' mouth, it has to be something he wants to eat! That's not going to be a problem with new Zbar Crispy from CLIF Kid. It's an rice crispy snack made with organic ingredients and nutrients for active, growing kids. Our family were given some samples to try, and they're a crispy, crunchy hit.
New Zbar Crispy, an organic rice crispy snack. Comes in 3 flavors -- Chocolate, Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter. Zbar Crispy also offers more calcium, iron, zinc, and vitamin D than most all-family snack bars. These nutrients are essential for kids' growth but tend to often be missing in kids' meals and snacks.
All natural: no HFCS, hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, no trans fats. 8g of whole grains.
Yum! I'm not surprised that everyone in the family loves these new Zbar Crispies. The Chocolate was the all-around favorite; not only do you get yummy chocolate flavor in every bite, you also get chocolate chunks scattered throughout the bar for twice the yumminess!
Neither Alfie nor I liked the Peanut Butter flavor much; I didn't see any peanuts in the bar, just peanut butter chips that didn't really taste like peanut butter, more like butterscotch. But the Peanut Butter was actually the kids' favorite flavor! They liked it much more than the Chocolate Chip Flavor (which was Alfie's and my second favorite), so maybe the sweetness appeals a lot more to kids than it does to adults. I guess I have to bow to the kids' opinion because these are Clif *Kid* bars, after all (although I actually prefer them to regular Clif bars because the servings are smaller).
The Bottom Line
What a great, yummy, healthy option from Clif Kid to add to my kids' lunch box and snack time stash!
