VERNON, Calif., May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As summer nears, Van's International Foods, maker of delicious whole grain waffles, cereals and snacks, introduces wholesome new gluten-free treats that are sure to satisfy the kid in everyone. New indulgent flavors of snack bars and granolas bring rich flavor and a solution to the age-old dilemma: should I eat something delicious or something nutritious?
First up, Van's Simply Delicious® Soft-Baked Whole Grain Granola Clusters (MSRP: $4.99) in Double Chocolate and Banana Nut. This decadent, bite-sized, gluten-free granola is soft and chewy, perfect with frozen or Greek yogurt or by the handful when a craving hits. Just as impressive are the nutritional credentials: 12-14 grams of whole grains and 120 calories per serving.
- Double Chocolate blends real chocolate chips with cocoa, coconut and pecans for a tempting alternative to a chocolate bar that's so delicious kids won't even know it's whole grain.
- Banana Nut brings together real banana flavor with pecan, walnut and almond pieces. It's like banana bread, but by the handful.
Both new granolas are as simply made as they are delicious, with no high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients, hydrogenated oils or GMO oils.
New additions to its ever-popular snack bar line are Van's Simply Delicious Banana Bread Whole Grain Snack Bars and Chocolate Gramwich Sandwich Bars (MSRP: $4.49), flavor-packed, delicious and filling gluten-free treats that can satisfy a sweet tooth or halt a hunger pang. While perfect on a road trip, as an on-the-go breakfast or for a between-meal snack, they're also a wholesome and tasty dessert alternative.
- Chocolate Gramwich Sandwich Bars pack as much favorite-treat nostalgia as they do delicious flavor. Made with real chocolate sandwiched between two whole-grain, graham-style bars, they're a one-of-a-kind pick-me-up.
- Banana Bread Bars blend bananas with gluten-free oats and flaxseed to create a tasty and portable version of banana bread that's wholesome enough to enjoy as part of breakfast.
Van's new snack bars provide 10 grams of whole grains, are under 200 calories per serving and are baked with simple, real and clean ingredients. And, like all of Van's snacks, the new snack bars are certified gluten-free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization.
"Summer snacking – or any snacking, for that matter – should be fun," said Tim Smith, Van's vice president of marketing. "Van's new granola and bars do what we do best – make wholesome foods delicious and easy for busy, active adults and kids alike."
