Can Do Kid Bars – Review & Giveaway

This giveaway has ended.  Thank you to all who entered.

Last week my kids and I were able to sample some Can Do Kid nutrition/energy bars.  While they are geared towards kids, adults enjoy them too.
Can Do Kids Bars are:

    • Protein / Energy Bars made with 9 Grams of Protein and 17 Essential Vitamins and minerals for nutrition
    • All natural and 70% Organic kids snacks
    • Available in three great flavors: Chocolate Crunch, Cookies and Cream, and CAN-illa Vanilla
    • Certified Gluten Free

    What we thought:
    A key protein source in these bars is soy so they have a definite soy taste.  The two chocolate coated bars, cookies & cream and chocolate crunch, tasted pretty much the same.  Can-illa Vanilla was our favorite.  We didn’t love them, but they were good and served the purpose of a nutrition/energy bar.   They contain 12 or 13 grams of sugar which is much better than many bars.
    All of the bars are chocolate coated (white chocolate for the Can-illa Vanilla).  While the coating adds a lot to the flavor of the bars, it makes it difficult to travel with the bars in the heat.  The coating gets soft and messy quickly so I kept them in the refrigerator.  In colder weather that won’t be a problem.
    The bars are  available at REI,  7-Eleven, Whole Foods Markets, many independent grocery stores, and through the Can Do Kid website.  Be sure to check allergy information before purchasing these if you have problems with other foods.  They all contain milk and either peanuts or almonds.
    If you would like to try these bars, the company is offering a sample pack to one winner.  To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling me which of the three flavors sounds the best to you:

    • Chocolate Crunch
    • Cookies & Cream
    • Can-illa Vanilla

    And please take a minute to visit the Can Do Kid website.  The giveaway will end at 11:00 p.m. EST on Friday, August 28th.
    If your comment does not provide a link to your web site or email, please leave your email address.  If I have no way to reach you, another winner will be chosen.  The winner will be chosen randomly and I’ll contact them on Saturday,  giving them 24 hours to respond.
    Can Do Kid bars are another great option for the gluten-free community.  Thank you Can Do Kid!

      They all sound awesome! I'd love to try the Vanilla one, as typically I only find chocolate protein bars (not that thats a bad thing though =D).

    2. I would love to try the chocolate crunch flavor! Thank you!

    3. Dim and Jana says:

      We think Cookies and Cream sound the best! Thanks for the review…

    4. tracy b says:

      I would love to let my son try the cookies and cream bar. We have had a hard time finding bars for my GF son. Thanks for the chance.

    5. Gluten Free Gal says:

      It's a real close tie between the cookies and cream and the chocolate crunch! I definitely love anything chocolate! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    6. I'm a vanilla girl all the way! Thanks for the giveaway!

      Sounds interesting. Too bad they have dairy and soy. I guess it's hard to make processed foods without one of the allergens.

    8. Cookies and Cream

      These sound great. Haven't seen them any where yet!

      I'd like to try the chocolate crunch flavor.

    10. Elizabeth says:

      We would love to try the CAN-illa flavor — my girls get tired of the EnviroKidz bars, and they would be great to leave in the teacher's fridge for an afternoon pick-me-up!

    11. The one that sounds the most scrumptious is the "Cookies and Cream." I would love to try it out.

      Thanks for sharing them.

    13. Cheryl - Somewhat Crunchy says:

      I'd love to try them, are they dairy free? If not I'll give them to my step father. I'm always on the lookout for good GF snacks for him.

    14. Mmm… I've missed cookies & cream since going GF – so that's definitely my pick :-)

      Thanks for the giveaway!
