I’ve tasted NoGii Kids Bar Chocolate Chip… should you put a bar in the trolley or leave it on the shelf?

NoGii Kids Bar Chocolate Chip blurb reads: KIDS LOVE THESE BARS! Packed with nutrition and loaded with great taste – NoGii Kids is the ultimate healthy snack for our kids with premium protein, quality carbohydrates, fiber, and Omega 3′s. You can feel certain that this bar is ALL-NATURAL with NO GLUTEN, NO NUTS, and NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP. NoGii Kids-The Smart Choice for a Smart Snack.

OK: Endorsed by American celebrity coeliac Elisabeth Hasselbeck, NoGii produce a range of gluten-free, high protein snack bars.

The tasting note: The “all-natural” claim might be a bit hard to swallow, looking at the ingredients list, but these actually taste quite nice and not too sweet. The texture is similar to a marshmallow treat – chewy with a bit of crunch. They are also dairy-free and contain no nuts. Each bar is 20g, so a good treat size for children, coming in at 80 calories per bar.

The full ingredient list: NoGii Protein Blend [Soy Protein Crisps (Soy Protein Isolate, Tapioca Starch), Cocoa Soy Crisps (Soy Protein Isolate, Cocoa {processed with alkali}, Tapioca Starch)], Marshmallow Creme (Rice Syrup, Sugar, Water, Egg Albumen, Agar, Gum Arabic, Natural Vanilla), Rice Crisps (Rice Flour, Rice Bran, Raisin Juice Concentrate, Honey, Salt), Brown Rice Syrup, Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (Sugar, Unsweetened Chocolate, Cocoa Butter), Arabic Gum, Canola Oil, Brown Rice Syrup Solids, Organic Agave Syrup, Dairy-Free Milk Chocolate Coating [Sugar, Palm Kernel Oil, Organic Rice Milk Powder (Organic Rice Syrup Solids, Organic Rice Starch, Organic Rice Flour), Soy Lecithin, Cocoa (processed with alkali), Vanilla], Maize Dextrin (Dietary Fiber), Natural Flavors, Organic Palm Fruit Oil, Vegetable Glycerine, Soy Lecithin, Sea Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Natural Vitamin E).
