Enjoy Life Foods Decadent Bars Review

The folks at Enjoy Life Foods sent us their decadent soft baked bars to review and WOW. They were super yummy! Thankfully I got a picture before we ate them all!
All of the bars (and every product made by Enjoy Life Foods) are free from the top 8 allergens and made in a dedicated bakery that is free from the top 8 allergens. So the bars are gluten free, dairy free, peanut free, tree nut free, egg free, soy free, fish free and shellfish free. I absolutely love that assurance because it allows me to rest easy every time I see their brand name.  There are no concerns ever if it has peanuts or nuts, and there are no concerns of cross contamination so every single one of their products are safe for Eliana.
The Enjoy Life Decadent Soft Baked Bars come in four flavors: Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate SunButter, Cinnamon Bun and S'mores. And ALL of them are delicious. Since the reason we are peanut free and nut free in our household is because of Eliana's allergy I decided to let you know her opinion as well :)

Cherry Cobbler (drizzled with white chocolate on top) :
Cherry Cobbler wasn't my favorite of the four flavors, but if you like cherry cobbler I bet you would enjoy it! It has some tartness to it along with the cherries too.

Eliana: It's good. Not my favorite but that's okay!

Chocolate Sunbutter (drizzled with chocolate on top) :
You can't go wrong with Chocolate and SunButter. And have you ever tried a SunCup? A Peanut Free version of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. OH My Word. Those are dangerous. This bar is basically a suncup in a bar, so I loved it!

Eliana: I love it! (munch munch munch) These are really good! Mmmmmm! I like the chocolate frosting on top (the chocolate drizzle).

Cinnamon Bun (drizzled with white chocolate on top) :
Yummy Cinnamon Buns. I Love cinnamon buns but I can't remember the last time I actually had one. They had yummy raisins in it, which went with the cinnamon flavor perfectly!

Eliana: tfse arr gud!! :: Translation :: These are good (said with a stuffed mouth) :)
Me: What do you like about it?
Eliana: It's 'cuz I LOVE cinnamon!

S'mores (drizzled with chocolate on top) :
I saved the best for last. These bars are by far my favorite (the Chocolate SunButter ones coming in at a close second). I Love S'mores. And I can say without hesitation that I did not want to share them. But I did eventually share. Kinda.. Sorta...I just happened to put them in a place where no one could find them...

Eliana: Mommy can I try one? 
Me: Try one what sweetie?

....and then I hid them all for me! muahahah! I'm kidding! Don't call foul! I will share... eventually...

With all of these bars both of us enjoyed them best as a snack with water. To me without drinking water on the side the bars left my mouth feeling dry, however Eliana had no preference. Overall we loved them. These bars are the perfect snacks for in between meals or an addition to a lunch. They are a great Allergy Friendly find and we both recommend them-- perfect for Back to School if your kids have allergies or if they go to a nut free/peanut free school! :)

Eliana's overall review: "These bars and water is like a healthy snack! Right Mommy? Not like cookies and juice. They were so good!"

So there you have it. My five year old's review of the decadent bars :)

And since Back to School is upon us we put one of the bars in one of our lunches:
The circus is going back to school! Well.. going back to school preparations certainly do feel like a circus at times so I figured it made sense :) To make this lunch I used my sandwich stampers and made two mini wowbutter (peanut free/nut free spread) and honey sandwiches. The school buses are on the Chocolate Sunbutter decadent bar road with cheese decorations on the road. Eliana has plums and cucumbers in the upper compartments. I used my circus bento picks as fun decorations and packed it all in an Easylunchbox. Eliana loved this lunch, ate every last bite, AND it was really so simple to put together! I love when that happens! :)
