Small and Expensive, but Taste Good!
Reviewed in the United States on May 13, 2016
When I saw these FreeYumm treats on Amazon, I was so excited to have my son (gluten, dairy and egg allergic) try them. I ordered the Chocolate Chip Oat Bars, the Double Chocolate Cookies, and the Blueberry Oat Bars, as these were the flavors he tends to like. When ordering, I thought they were quite pricey, but that seems to be the way things are with foods that don’t contain certain allergens we have to avoid.
As soon as the boxes arrived, I tore them open like a kid on Christmas morning, opening each one to give my son to try, so I could see his reaction to the tastes and so he could tell me which he liked most/least. I was surprise by how tiny each item was. The bars were probably about one-half to two-thirds the size of a standard granola bar, and the cookie was quite small as well, making the high prices hit me even harder.
The thought of the expense went away when my son tasted them, though, and said how delicious the Double Chocolate Cookies were and how good the thought the Blueberry Oat Bar was (he wanted more of both, of course). While said he kind of liked the Chocolate Chip Oat Bars, he did not ask for more of those, and said he liked the others better, so of the three, those were the least favorite of the group he tried.
I also took a taste of the Blueberry Oat Bars and the Chocolate Chip Oat Bars (I wanted to save all of the cookies for my kiddo). I thought they were both good, but I also preferred the Blueberry Oat Bars (they reminded me of blueberry cobbler). Both types of bars were dense, moist, and chewy, as well as flavorful. Wonderful texture and taste! When I make a future purchase, for mine and my son’s own personal tastes, we will be getting the Blueberry Oat Bars and Double Chocolate Cookies, but probably not the Chocolate Chip Oat Bars.
