Enjoy Life: Nut-Free and Delicious

My family has been loving Enjoy Life products lately.

Enjoy Life products are free of the eight most common allergens. They contain no: wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soy, fish or shell fish. They are also made without casein, potato, sesame and sulfites.

I am impressed with their standards. If you deal with food allergies, I'd recommend checking them out: www.enjoylifefoods.com.
They also have a wonderful blog: http://www.enjoylifefoodsblog.com/

Now let me tell you what we tried out.

A few months ago, I was contacted by Enjoy Life and asked I would be interested in sampling some Enjoy Life Granola products. They sent my family 3 packages of granola: Cranberry Crunch, Very Berry Crunch, and Cinnamon Crunch.


The kids couldn't wait to try them out. We had them the afternoon they arrived. When I explained they were nut-free, my son that has a peanut allergy was really excited.



He tried them all out.


His favorite was the Very Berry Crunch. Out of my three boys, 2 of them loved the granola. Both my husband and I enjoyed it too. I just snacked on it plain, right out of the bag. I think it would be wonderful mixed in yogurt. My third son enjoyed it the most, I think. In fact, he preferred it over the sugary cereals I offered him the next day. He had a bowl of granola in milk.


This week, I received some Enjoy Life Boom Choco Boom bars that I won from an Allergy Twitter Party.


Again, my son was thrilled to get a treat that was allergy friendly.

I made him share with his brothers.

They all really liked the candy bars. My boys each had a favorite bar.
It worked out perfectly because we had 3 varieties: Boom Choco Boom: Dairy Free Rice Milk Bar, Boom Choco Boom: Dairy Free Rice Milk Bar, and Boom Choco Boom: Dark Chocolate Bar.

I was not surprised that they each preferred something different.


I was surprised by how good the candy bars tasted. The part I couldn't get over was the dairy free. Dairy free chocolate? Oh, but it was really good. My favorite is the dark chocolate bar.

These products were wonderful. I know we will get them again. They are available at several local groceries stores and they can be bought online.

If you deal with food allergies (or even if you don't), I'd suggest checking them out.

That is awesome for you Jane Anne...what a relief to not have to worry about reading every ingredient. I love granola.

Wow...thanks for a great tip! Our youngest son would love to be able to eat granola/granola bars. Especially now that he's in college. It's a 'grab-and-go' kind of snack. His allergy to tree nuts has made that impossible, though. I'm definitely going to check out the websites...thanks again!

Interesting snacks! I am glad that there is snacks available for those that have food allergies.

Enjoy your weekend!

My little guy loves the Enjoy Life cereal bars, his favorite are the chocolate and the apple caramel. I was standing in front of the granola today at the grocery store but bought him something different instead. I'll have to give them a try next time we go :0).

Oh, thanks so much for posting about this. We're always looking for safe foods for our litle guy. He's got allergies to eggs, peanuts, tree nuts and fish. I can't wait to try these.

JUST THIS MORNING - found Enjoy Life foods in a nearby grocery store. Too bad we are away from home for the weekend - may stock up before we head home!
