grabthegoldI grabbed the gold on the way to work today. Really! Grab the Gold is a balanced protein snack bar that came in one of my monthly deliveries from Cuisine Cube. I always have a bar or two stashed in my work bag in case I’m hungry and not around gluten free options.

This bar is more the size and shape of a hockey puck, maybe slightly smaller. It’s round like a hockey puck. The flavor of my bar was chocolate peanut butter and had whole chocolate chips and whole oats in it. It was moist but with chunks so it wasn’t pasty like protein bars can be. The size was perfect. I didn’t feel overly full after eating the whole thing but it filled my need for breakfast. The chocolate chips made it a bit sweet but not too much for first thing in the morning.

These bars were created in 1990 by Danielle Ontiveros when she was 16. Her goal was to create a healthy bar that tasted better than the ones she could find at the store. Grab the Gold bars are gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. They do not contain preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or trans fats.

Each bar is 193 calories with 7 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein. The product does contain peanuts, soy and corn.

Go to the stock-up section at Cuisine Cube to order in packs of 3 or get 1 as a sample first from Grab the Gold’s website.
