There is nothing worse than being a kid on a gluten free diet.
Okay, so there probably is, but when you're young and all your friends are eating biscuits and cakes and your stuck in the corner with an apple and a packet of nuts, life pretty much sucks.
That is until I got sent some samples of these gems, which are enough to keep any kid - or inner child! - smiling.
Nature's Path Crispy Rice Bites are exactly what gluten free food should be about - less of the no-calorie no-taste dried fruit rubbish please - I want some TASTE.
And when you're a kid, that's all you want - you don't want to be eating seeds, you want some simple, sweet flavours in friendly, 'normal' packaging.
The great thing about these delicious cereal bars, available in ‘Berry Bobbly’ (raspberries & blueberries); ‘Choco Knobbly’ (light milk chocolate) and ‘Peanut Butter Bobbles’ (peanut butter with a milk chocolate drizzle) is that they even LOOK like normal cereal bars - from the packaging to the product.
My favourite was the Choco Knobbly - it kind of reminded me of the days of making rice crispy cakes with Mars Bars, except this was a better attempt than mine!
The peanut butter variety provide a sweet and crunchy taste, and the berry one is great for something sweet and a bit fruity.
Overall I was immeasurably impressed with these - there are not enough coeliac-friendly products on the market and I for one applaud Nature's Path for giving it a damn good go!
