I mentioned in a previous Gluten Free Bar review that I first thought they had been kicked out of my local Meijer, but like the Phoenix, they rose again with additional flavors. I said that I picked up a couple of flavors and today's review of this The GFB Gluten Free Bar Oatmeal Raisin Bar is the second of those flavors that I was able to grab. Like the last, this one was on the shelves of Meijer for $1.49. It clocks in at 2.05 ounces with 220 calories and twelve grams of protein. It's all natural, dairy free, soy free, vegan and obviously gluten free.

Balance Bar is a product that I hit a lot in the early days of the blog and then it went a year before I reviewed it again. I was thinking that prior to today that it had been at least eighteen months since I looked at one, but much to my surprise, I did a couple of reviews earlier this year. Either way, review of Balance Bars have been few and far between since 2012. So, today they make a return to the blog (again) as I take a look at this Balance Bar Bare Sea Salt Caramel Nut Bar that I was able to pick up at Meijer for $1.00. The bar itself is 1.19 ounces and has 160 calories and five grams of protein. It's also gluten and soy free, if you are interested in that kind of thing.

When Kroger posted its Free Friday Download recently, I was slightly disappointed in the fact that it was a Yoplait Greek yogurt product because I thought I had reviewed all the flavors (that I care to review) already. Much to my surprise, there is a flavor out there that I haven't yet looked at and that leads me to today's review of this single serving cup of Yoplait Greek Lemon Meringue 2% Greek Yogurt. As I mentioned previously, this was a freebie, but it would ordinarily run in the $1.00 range if you are keeping score at home. The cup itself contains 5.3 ounces of Greek yogurt and within that is 150 calories and eleven grams of protein.

If you read my last Gatorade G-Series Recover bar review, it means you are probably crazy. Ha. No, it means that you know the backstory of how I found a couple of new flavors in an "enemy" store (one that I don't visit often) and today's review is the second and final review of the bars that I was able to find. Like last time, I picked up this Gatorade G-Series Recover Chocolate Caramel Whey Protein Bar at Marsh for $1.99. It clocks in at 2.8 ounces and being that it is such a large bar, it packs in 340 calories and twenty grams of protein.

Last time I looked at one of these Gluten Free Bars, I picked it up on clearance at Meijer so I figured it was a one-time only review since they wouldn't be carrying them anymore. Well, I was wrong. Not only are they still carrying them, but they've also added more flavors and seeing that, I picked up a couple for reviews. Today's review if the first of that purchase as I take a look at this The GFB Gluten Free Bar Cranberry Toasted Almond Bar that I was able to grab for $1.49. It's 2.05 ounces and comes in with 225 calories and twelve grams of protein. It's gluten free (DUH, or as the wrapper says OBVIOUSLY) and also soy free, dairy free AND vegan.

You know a flavor profile has run its course and become overplayed when even the slow-moving behemoth manufacturers like Dannon are starting to make products of that flavor. Usually, the smaller manufacturers that can make things and re-tool faster are the ones that make something popular and then the behemoths come in and ruin it for everyone. Well, that's at least my fear and was my fear when I saw a product that could add another Dannon review (and another pumpkin product) to the blog with this limited edition (of course) single serving cup of Dannon Oikos Traditional Pumpkin Pie Greek Yogurt that I picked up at Marsh for $1.09. This cup comes in at the usual 5.3 ounces and has 170 calories with eleven grams of protein.

It's another new manufacturer! I always love it when I stumble upon something new in my usual stores because I sometimes worry that I'm going to run out of things that I can or want to review for this blog. In the back of my head, I know that would never be a problem, but I worry because that's just the type of person that I am. Anyway, today's new product is a Wholesome Goodness Cranberry Omega Granola Bar that I picked up at Marsh for $1.29. It's 1.4 ounces and has 160 calories and three grams of protein. As the name would imply, it's good for Omega fats too, so hooray I guess.
