Van's Natural Foods Review

Thank You to Van's Natural Foods for providing me with their product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

I received a very generous package from Van's that included their Nacho, Nacho, Man Multi-grain chips, Mighty Good BBQ Multi-Grain Chips, PB&J Blueberry and Peanut Butter Sandwich Bars and PB&J Strawberry and Peanut Butter Sandwich Bars, ALL Gluten Free to base my review. The package also came with a cute little glass plate and several free product coupons to try out their other products. 

     Van’s Multigrain Chips (MSRP: $3.29-$3.49) in Nacho, Nacho, Man! and Mighty Good BBQ! are loaded with 18 grams of whole grains and just 130 calories per serving. Made with gluten-free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth, Van’s Multigrain Chips are crispy, crunchy and bursting with flavor. These guilt-free treats keep it real, containing no high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients, hydrogenated oils or GMO oils, and they’re great for dipping or enjoying right out of the bag. 15 chips/130 calories.
· Van’s PB&J Sandwich Bars (MSRP: $3.99 - $4.49), a delicious, classic blend of real peanut butter and fruit jelly, sandwiched between two whole grain, gluten-free bars. This sweet, chewy delight, available in Blueberry and Strawberry, is perfect for a quick, healthy breakfast, lunchtime treat, snack or dessert featuring 10 grams of whole grains. 1bar/160 calories.
· Van’s Love Your Heart Waffles (MSRP: $3.49). These Non-GMO Project-certified waffles feature 1 gram of heart-healthy soluble fiber, 34 grams of whole grains and is made from a mix of whole grains including whole wheat, barley, oats and more. Warm, yummy and deliciously heart healthy—talk about a loving way to start the day.

It was difficult keeping all of the hands out of the box once it arrived. The kids were most excited to try out the PB&J Bars! They are good, healthy snacks that I feel good about sending them out the door with for school and according to them, much better than the previous bars I was purchasing for them. They literally lasted less than a minute on the plate!

I was excited to try the Multi-Grain chips. While working I have a bad habit of munching throughout the day so it was nice to have a nice healthy snack to munch on. 

Here is a little information about Van's from their site:

"You may not know it, but Van’s has been cooking up tasty, good-for-you waffles for almost a half century. It all started back in the 1970s at the original Van’s restaurant. It was there, inspired by our California beachside roots, that we first dished up whole grain and gluten free hot ’n toasty waffles. By the late 1980s, we decided it was time to bring our tasty waffles to a whole new group of customers – right in their local grocery stores."

Van's has many different products to choose from. They have a great breakfast variety that includes Pancakes, Cereal and French Toast sticks! What a great way to start your day than with a delicious healthy breakfast. 

They also have a very nice blog where you can get recipes, organization tips and more so be sure to check them out! Overall, I am completely satisfied with Van's products and WILL be a return customer!
