I truly am a fan of Van’s Natural Foods. Its hard not to love a company that really cares about the ingredients they put in their foods.

I’m loving that they keep improving and adding more products to their food line.

Check out some great new lunch box snacks, as well as a few new cracker flavors.

I am a daily lunch packer, and I love having a new item to add to my meal or as my snack. Looks like I can add a Cranberry Almond Crunch bar and a bag of Say Cheese crackers to my lunch box.

Here’s the Details on the Cranberry Almond Crunch Bar.

Gluten Free Snack Bars – Cranberry Almond

Delicious chewy cranberry and almond packed snack bars!

 Made with gluten-free oats, flax, cranberries and almonds, this bar is loaded with 10g of whole grains. But the best part? The chewy, fruity, nutty delicious taste! So go ahead take a bite, and say hello to a whole new, whole grain way to snack.

Lots of crackers featuring some VanTastic New Flavors.

My crackers included the New 5 pack of 4 Once Say Cheese portioned bags.

Also was The Perfect 10 Cracker and the Fire Roasted Veggies cracker.

Lots of Recipes cards to create amazing dips for the crackers, and other uses for Van’s Foods.

All these VanTastic foods came in this great recycled bag. I think Ginger thought she was going to get a free treat.

Not only were there dip recipes, for the crackers, but there were also appetizer recipes using the crackers.

Definitely going to make this one!

I also received a box of my favorite Van’s cereal. Cinnamon Heaven. Most High on my breakfast enjoyment list. Perfect in yogurt and I love to put them in snack bags and munch on them throughout the day.

Van’s offered so many options for so many people who have food restrictions. Here’s some back ground information on the Vans’ Company.

THE VAN’S STORY

Here at Van’s, we believe that healthy is delicious.

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.

That same passion for seriously healthy, seriously tasty foods lives on at Van’s today. We value artisanal quality and we cook our products in small, minimally processed batches with always-fresh ingredients. And since we want everyone to be able to enjoy our waffles, we offer gluten-free waffles along with organic, mini and our signature 8 Whole Grain varieties.

The original Van’s restaurant may no longer be dishing out waffles on the beach, but we still pack the same sunny Southern California spirit into every product we make. Our only hope is that you’ll enjoy Van’s foods as much as we enjoy creating them.

Van's Natural Foods

I know most of you have heard of the company Van’s. I love their Cinnamon French Toast Sticks. I crave them. I posted about them back here and again here. Here’s a few pictures to get your juices flowing.

I love to make French Toast Sticks Sandwiches. Yummy x 10.

Van’s is a Natural Foods Company. They have passion for seriously healthy, seriously tasty foods.

Here’s some exciting News. 

Van’s has expanded their food line to include healthy snacks. Coming This Summer, Van’s Natural Foods offers healthy new snacks with its all-natural, nutrition-packed whole grain snack bars and crackers. The portable treats – perfect for day camp backpacks, family road trip snacks, pool totes or beach bags – offer a delicious and nutritious way to snack that the whole family can enjoy. (Bonus – they’re gluten-free.)

Van’s Whole Grain Cereals (MSRP: $3.99) start the day out right with a full serving of whole grains and 5 grams of fiber per serving. Available in Honey Nut Crunch and Cinnamon Heaven, these cereals are made with nutrient-rich whole grains, including gluten-free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. Van’s cereals give you seriously tasty and satisfying crunch – all without dairy, egg, corn, high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients, hydrogenated oils or GMO oils.

I poured my self a big old bowl and got to it. I love cereal anytime of the day. For me it’s like coffee. Meaning this; I take my time when I eat it and enjoy the experience. Something about just kicking back and savoring the crunchy spoonfuls. I have to say the cinnamon was really good. They sure did appropriately name it Cinnamon Heaven. It was crunchy and did not get soggy in the milk, which is a deal breaker for me. Cannot wait until my next bowl.

008

Van’s Whole Grain Crackers (MSRP: $2.99) are deliciously light and perfectly crispy. A fun addition to a school lunch or a party snack everyone can enjoy, they’re baked with nutrient-rich whole grains, including gluten-free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. Available in three flavors – Multigrain, Lots of Everything! and Say Cheese! – these gluten-free crackers are full of nutrition and flavor, with 16 grams of whole grains per serving – and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

004

Crackers are my weakness. I love to snack on crackers. I like my crackers solo, dipped in hummus or topped with cheese. I was really excited to try these out once I opened the bag. They have amazing texture and I love seeing the grains and oats in crackers. These little crackers were packed with flavor. You could really taste the cheddar and all the grains. Really enjoyed my Say Cheese! Crackers.

005

Van’s Whole Grain Snack Bars (MSRP: $4.49) in chewy, delicious Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Almond and Peanut Butter Chocolate, are perfect for breakfast on-the-run, snack-time or an anytime nutritious treat. Baked with real, all-natural ingredients and nutrient-rich whole grains, the bars have 8-10 grams of whole grains and 4 grams of fiber per serving – more than four times the fiber of other gluten-free bars on the market today, according to our research.

002

We all love snack bar. I always have a box of them in my kitchen on hand for snacks and even some as meal replacements. They are easy and some are very healthy. Well I think I just found a new favorite. Again, I have to go back to texture. I love grains and nuts and when I choose bars, I choose ones with TEXTURE. I really do not care for the bars that are all blended together and have no crunch or little nuggets of goodness. Van’s snack bars are loaded with all the things I love. Little chunks of  chocolate and grains. I enjoyed each and every bite.

001

Take a look over at the Van’s Website to find these in a store near you. They will not disappoint. Now if you cannot locate a store that carries them, why not Request your local/favorite retailer to carry your favorite Van’s items. Van’s makes it easy with a Request Form you can download, check the items you’d like your store to carry, then print it. Then next time you’re at your favorite store, just hand the form to the manager! Super Easy.
