Review: Gluten-Free Tosi Almond & Cashew SuperBites
I’m back with product reviews and this is a really exciting one for us gluten-free folks – it’s a crunchy nut snack called Tosi SuperBites. A couple months ago I joined a group called the SoCal Lady Bloggers. It’s a great group of women who live in Southern California and blog. They’ve got a really active Facebook community that I’ve become a part of. One of the bloggers reached out recently and asked if anyone was gluten-free because she had a great product for us to try. Gluten-free snack? Free product sample? I didn’t know what the product was but I was excited to find out. This also was perfect timing because it was right around the time of August product review month and I was looking for yummy new products to try out and review for the site. Most excellent.
Last week I received my package of Tosi SuperBites in the mail. They came in two flavors: Almond SuperBites and Cashew SuperBites.
The packages are a pretty decent size – almost the size of a brownie you’d buy at a bakery or something. My initial reaction was “Wow, these are big and made with nuts. I bet they will be high in calories. I was pleasantly surprised when I flipped over the package and saw that one serving was only 120 calories and had 5g of protein. Not too shabby. Here’s a pic of the nutrition label:
The Ingredients for the Almond SuperBites are pretty clean, too. Check it out:
- Organic Almonds
- Organic Golden Flaxseed
- White Sesame Seeds
- Organic Chia Seeds
- Organic Evaporated Cane Juice
- Sea Salt
Everything in there is pretty damn good for you minus the organic evaporated cane juice. But even then, there is only 2g of sugar per serving so we are not talking about a lot of sugar here. In addition to being gluten-free, the bars are also free of yeast, dairy, and trans-fats. They are also a good source of Omega-3’s.
The Tosi SuperBites also come in pieces instead of one big bar. I like this because I hate breaking apart these types of bigger bars and having crumbs spill everywhere. Plus it helps me portion properly.
I tried the Tosi Cashew SuperBites first. I had it in the afternoon as a pick me up snack before dinner and before I went to go workout. It was crunchy and hearty and tasted like cashew. Yum. It was pretty filling and I liked the taste. The bar is packed with nuts and seeds, so naturally some got stuck in my teeth and I washed them out with water.
The Tosi Cashew Superbites lasted me a couple days with having a piece here and there as a snack. The next flavor I tried was the Tosi Almond Superbites. I liked the almond flavor a lot better. I generally prefer almonds over cashews so I think its a personal preference. While I am typing this review, my husband is trying a piece of the Almond Superbites. He says it “Tastes very light and has a nice crunch to it.”
Overall I think these Tosi Superbites are an excellent healthy, gluten-free snack option that will give you good, solid energy. Tosi SuperBites are new, so they aren’t on Amazon yet. If you are interested in purchasing them, you can purchase them by visiting the Tosi website here. You can buy a pack of 12 for $30 which I think is pretty good considering one pack lasted me a couple days. If you are interested in purchasing, the kind folks at Tosi have offered 15% off for my readers. Use the code TOSI15 to receive 15% off your order. There is also a flyer below for 10% off. But why get 10% off when you can get 15% off?
Tosi also has several other health related products on their site, but I have only tried the SuperBites so those are the only products I can vouch for.
I’m happy to have another healthy snack like this in my wheelhouse and look forward to seeing them for sale in grocery stores and on Amazon.
What about you? Have you tried Tosi SuperBites? What do you think? Post in the comments and let me know.
