We found these fig bars in a local allergy-free food store called Chase Foods. If you live in the Jacksonville, FL area, you got to check out this store!
The twins loved the free samples of these fig bars we received at an event so we decided to buy a whole box of 12 packs. Each packet contains 2 pieces which makes a nice built-in portion control feature. In the whole wheat type we are trying right now, the dough is made up of whole wheat flour, organic evaporated cane juice, canola oil, brown rice syrup, caramel color, apple fiber, sea salt, citric acid, baking soda, lecithin and baking powder. The filling contains fig paste, brown rice syrup, organic evaporated cane juice, rolled oats, molasses, citric acid and sea salt.
Here is what we like about this product –
- A dairy-free option for people with dairy allergy
- Simple, natural ingredients
- Tastes good
- Only 110 calories per bar
- No saturated fat or trans fat
- No cholesterol
- Provides fiber, calcium and iron
Here is what we don’t like about this product –
- Not organic
- Label says it is made on equipment shared with peanut and dairy products. Can’t claim true “dairy free”
- It could use a little less sugar – for a small 28 g bar, it has 11 g of sugar.
Overall, we like these fig bars a lot. Give them a try!
