Another blogger friend of mine talked to me recently about WB Kitchens and their paleo snacks. I was intrigued! It’s hard where I live to find snacks that I don’t end up making myself that stick to the paleo and primal diet. I have to drive nearly an hour to the closest Whole Foods…needless to say, that doesn’t happen often.
When I wrote to them, I was pleasantly surprised they were a Colorado based company. This coming May will be three years since I left a piece of my heart in Colorado. My husband’s job moves us quite a bit, and Colorado was one of my favorite places we’ve lived. It was a health food mecca, and eating clean, healthy organic food was so easy. It was everywhere. There’s practically a Whole Foods on every corner…ok, maybe not every corner. When WB Kitchens introduced themselves to me as a small company (love!), based out of Ft. Collin’s Colorado (LOVE!!) I almost asked him to send me a burrito from Big City Burrito while he was sending me some of his products to try (not health food, haha!).
A few days after emailing, I received a huge box of samples. I couldn’t believe it. My kids drooled over them, too. Brownie, coconut shortbread cookies, honey nut bars and then my favorite, the Java Mocha bar. It was hard for me to snap a few pictures before keeping them from digging in. Seriously look at this box!
The ingredients they use are the highest quality. Raw Unfiltered Honey from the a Colorado based supplier called Beeyond the Hive. I love that they use local honey. They label each bar if it is paleo, SCD or GAPS friendly which most are. Their facility is gluten free and they never process soy, dairy, gluten or any grains at all. Check out the nutrition information label. Most of the calories on here come from FAT. Perfect for those high fat, paleo dieters. The fat content also comes from coconut oil, which is great. Coconut oil is a great source of MCT’s (medium chain triglycerides), it’s easily digested, and improves the absorption of fat soluble vitamins.
The only flours they use in their bars are organic almond flour and coconut flour, completely paleo/primal diet friendly. The bars and cookies aren’t super sweet, so if you’ve been eating a paleo diet for a while I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. They’re a sweet treat, with out being sickeningly sweet. It’s just right.
Currently they are working at getting the word out about their products. You can find them right now at Whole Foods, and other natural foods retailers. Why wait for that though when you could win an entire box for your family to try? I’ve partnered with WB Kitchen’s to bring these right to you in my latest giveaway!
