Cascadian Farms Oatmeal Raisin Kid-Sized Bars - Another Possibility for your Dairy/Egg/Nut Free Home

Just came across a new chewy granola bar by one of my favorite companies, Cascadian Farms.   You won't find dairy, egg or nuts included on this ingredient list, all important allergens we try to avoid in our home.

Cascadian Farms Oatmeal Raisin Granola Bar, distributed by Small Planet Foods, Inc., Sedro-Wooley, WA. 



S.A.F.E. Product Review

The listed ingredients are: GRANOLA*(ROLLED OATS*, BROWN RICE SYRUP*, SUGAR*, SUNFLOWER OIL*, SEA SALT, BAKING SODA, VANILLA*), TAPIOCA SYRUP*, RAISINS* INULIN*, CRISP RICE* (RICE FLOUR*, SUGAR*, SEA SALT, MALT EXTRACT*, ANNATTO COLOR), OAT FIBER*, RICE MALTODEXTRIN*, SOY LECITHIN, CINNAMON*, SEA SALT, NATURAL FLAVOR. *ORGANIC.
It also states on the packagingCONTAINS SOY INGREDIENTS

Want to know what they're blogging about?  They post about recycling, composting, recipes... a huge variety of ideas!  Be sure to visit this link:  Cascadian Farm Blog 

Another added commendation about this product is that it states on the packinging the following:  
  • CERTIFIED ORGANIC.   This product is certified organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture in accordance with the organic standards of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
I know that 'natural flavor' can be of concern for some.  For this reason, I will be reposting corporate response I received from the last time I posted about their products and the 'natural flavor' ingredient.

The only negative?  They are too small for my kids.  They have to eat two of these at time.  There are 8 kid-sized bars, 0.78oz each, in every package.  I'd like to see them produce this granola in the 1.2oz size, even if it only means 6 in a package.  

Try them out and keep me posted on your thoughts.
