Betty Lou's Review and GIVEAWAY

Betty Lou's Info:
I have always believed that there is a connection between what we eat and how we feel.
Everyone wants to feel their best, and when I decided to remove refined sugar from my family's diet 32 years ago, I began creating recipes that were made with honey and brown rice syrup instead. Children know what they like, and my sons were my very first taste-testers. As I fine-tuned the recipes my boys' friends took notice, and soon I had the most popular yard in the neighborhood! I was like the mom with Kool-Aid(tm) in the TV commercial.
I chose "Just Great Stuff... and Plenty of it!" as our motto because it truly reflects the dedication that we have to the quality of our products. I always use the best, healthiest, cutting edge ingredients because I believe that they taste better and make you feel better.
Today we still make Nut Butter Balls as well as our very popular layered Fruit Bars, Powdered Peanut Butter (with 85% less fat than regular peanut butter!), Low Glycemic Protein Shakes, Cookies and a line of Organic Just Great Stuff Bars that contain interesting, whole food ingredients... like organic cacao nibs, freeze-dried acai and raspberries, goji berries, mangoes, bananas and even freeze-dried spinach, kale and broccoli sprouts.
Every day at Betty Lou's we challenge the notion that healthy, all-natural, gluten-free products have to compromise on taste. We've proven that the opposite can be true! Our delicious products have been made that way from the beginning and it's what we do best!

My Review
Nut Butter Balls: 10/10! OH MY WORD. Delicious doesn't even begin to describe these! The flavors were incredible. Almond Butter, Peanut Butter, and Coconut Macadamia. HOLY MOLEY! These were perfect as a pre-workout snack! YUM! 

Just Great Stuff Bars: 8/10. They had a soft and chewy texture. The Fruit and Veggie Bar was not my favorite. I didn't like the veggie taste, I think the kale was what stood out as the most unliked ingredient of the bar. The Superberry Acai bar was pretty good though. :)

Powdered Peanut Butter: 10/10! WOW! Not only did this peanut butter taste delicious, it was only 45 calories per serving!!! You could add as much water as you desired. I didn't add a lot because I like my PB thick and creamy....mmm!!! This would also be great to add on top of ice cream for that TASTY peanut butter flavor! 

Fruit Bars: 11/10! These little bites of deliciousness were incredible! They tasted like mini pies! MMM!! 

Protein Shakes: 7/10. This was a great addition to a smoothie, but it wasn't anything extraordinary. Simple vanilla flavor. 

Would you like to win some of these delicious goodies for yourself???
