Mareblu Naturals/180 Snacks Offers Gluten-Free Healthy Choices

My latest obsession is Costco.  How have I not shopped there before just last month?  I mean, it is right up the street.  Last week I went in to Costco to buy some produce and was able to spend some time browsing some of the snack aisles.  I came across these Almond Rice Pops with Blueberries from 180 Snacks.  The front of the bag said “gluten-free”, so right away I was excited.  I love blueberries and almonds and this seemed like a great snack.  I was very pleased with these little bites of happiness!  Once I got home I did some more research into the company and found that they make a variety of gluten-free snacks.

180 Snacks is part of Mareblu Naturals.  Mareblu Naturals makes a wide variety of snacks that are certified gluten-free, vegan, peanut-free & kosher.   Here is some more information about the company:

Mareblu Naturals was started in response to the over-processed, imported, unhealthy snacks that flooded the aisles of my supermarket. I was concerned about the kinds of foods my four children were being exposed to. When developing the Mareblu product line, I had several goals in mind:

Locally grown and packaged – I didn’t like buying foods that were produced in, or made up of products brought from unknown locations. I wanted Mareblu to taste fresh and come from trusted growers

Natural – Artificial colors and flavors never seemed very healthy to me. I found that nature has provided all the flavors necessary for creating snacks that both kids and adults love. Dried fruits, nuts, evaporated cane juice and sea salt all combine for a natural flavor you can feel good about eating.

Healthy – By creating Mareblu from the best premium products available, I found that the health benefits were enormous.

In addition to the Almond Rice Pops with Blueberries under the 180 Snacks name, Mareblu also makes the following products:

  • Crunch Bags – Clusters of dried fruits, nuts and/or seeds in bag for snacking.
  • Crunch Bars – Bars made from nuts, seeds and dried fruit.
  • Glazed Whole Nuts
  • Dry Roasted Nuts

I wonder how I have missed all of these awesome products in the past?  I love dried fruit & nuts, so these are definitely my cup of tea.  Mareblu Naturals & 180 Snacks products are available across the U.S. or online.  Click here to find out the best way for you to find some of these yummy snacks.  I, myself, see a return trip to Costco in the near future to replenish my supply.

  1. I have got to get to Costco and check it out! There is one fairly close to us and I’m not really a big warehouse shopper….but these things I’m hearing about gf items there have peaked my interest ;)

      It is interesting, I don’t normally shop at these types of places either, but for certain things, you can’t beat it. Plus, $4.99 for a rotisserie chix on a busy night that is marked “GF” is a bonus! Oh, the maranantha almond butter is a great deal, too!

    I went to Costco today to buy some Almond Pops with Blueberries only to find out they are discontinuing them.

      I was at my costco last week and again today,(Santa Clara, CA) they do not have the blueberry ones like they did in this summer but they had the Almond Rice Pops with Cranberries, This is a 17 oz bag and is priced at 6.99. I picked up a few bags since they have a long shelf life.
      The lady checking receipts at the door told me that Costco’s in Monterey and Santa Cruz carry the Mareblu Dark Chocolate club size bags. I don’t know if it was almond or cashew version but I’m going to have a friend check it out for me. i LOVE these snacks and they are also very good smooshed up over greek yogurt.

  4. Too bad Costco doesn’t have them now. I called 180 snacks and they said that Costco has ordered more and they would be in the warehouses in 2 weeks–that was 4 weeks ago. My local costco hasn’t a clue about them and their item number doesn’t show up (I saved the bag from when I purchased on their introductory order). I’m going to try to call Costco corp tomorrow or the next. I have already left an email with 180 snacks. We shall see. marleen
