Review: Extend Nutrition Anytime Bars

I had to laugh after I was asked to review these bars, as unlike many of the bars I've reviewed on here, these are more marketed toward diabetics.  I'm guessing this happened because I wrote a post on diabetes last month.

However, I love trying bars of all kinds, so down the hatch they went.  I mean, if non-diabetics find these palatable, that's the true tastiness test right there.  As a plus, these claim to be gluten-free.

Extend Nutrition sent me samples of their Anytime Bar.  Since I had a couple of each flavor, I decided to give some to my diabetic co-worker who normally supplies me with cookies to try.  I had to laugh again when we started chatting about bars, sugar-free things, and intestinal upset.  Thankfully, these did not cause that (your mileage may vary, though)!


Here is a brief review of some of the bars:

  • Cookies N Crème: Not bad, reminiscent of the flavor as other brands. 
  • Caramel: My co-worked really liked this one.
  • Yogurt Berry (pictured below): Nice yogurt exterior, not too sweet.
  • Mixed Berry: Rice puff texture, I prefer the Yogurt berry because I like having the creaminess.  This one is a bit more dry.

Overall, these are pretty tasty nutrition bars, and the main gripe that my co-worker and I have about them is they are a bit smaller than other bars.
