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.
