ThinkThin makes a variety of crunch and protein bars, all of which are gluten-free. The people at thinkThin have a good understanding of celiac disease disease and gluten sensitivity. You can learn more about their commitment to gluten-free foods in this YouTube video.
They also have a video showing how to make several quick and healthy gluten-free snacks.
ThinkThin makes three types of products: crunch bars, protein bars, and bites. I was sent samples of the crunch bars and protein bars. Unfortunately there is only one variety of crunch bar that is dairy free and all of the protein bars contain dairy. I believe all the products also contain soy, some more than others.
The crunch bars have 10 grams of protein and only 3 – 4 grams of sugar. There are four flavors, and mixed nuts (the one pictured above) is the dairy free variety. I enjoyed the mixed nuts bar. I often carry loose mixed nuts with me, but having the nuts in a bar was very convenient and enjoyable. My gluten-free son enjoyed the other crunch bars and they made a great snack for a guy on the go.
The protein bars contain 15 – 20 grams of protein and 0 grams of sugar. As mentioned, I was not able to sample these because of the dairy. All of my kids tried them and the bars were not well liked. Of course, my kids are not used to eating such high protein bars. The bars are dense (pictured above) and the flavor is not what the boys are used to.
If you are very active or for some reason need a very high protein snack, you might consider the protein bars. For general on-the-go snacking the crunch bars are a great choice.
Where to Purchase: You can order online from the ThinkThin store or Amazon. You can also find the products at stores like Trader Joes and Whole Foods. The store locator can help you find a store near you.
