Product Review: thinkThin Bars

I have mentioned a few times before that we sometimes depend on thinkThin Bars for Jon when he is traveling or has a busy day. While some people use the bars for diet control, we use them as a solid source of protein for Jon until he can get a “real” meal. Jon is an active, growing boy, so no need for him to diet. We were introduced to the thinkThin Bars 2 years ago by one of Jon’s teachers. She felt bad because she had brought in a snack for the kids as a reward and Jon was unable to eat it. She had some thinkThin Bars in her desk and remembered that they said “gluten-free” on the package. She gave one to Jon and he liked it so much he came home & told me about them.

thinkproducts mission statement:

The goal behind thinkproducts has always been to create food for those who “think about what they eat” while living a full and energetic lifestyle. The company offers the only all-natural weight management bar made with a premium blend of soy, whey, and casein proteins. Each thinkThin bar is based on three key nutritional principals:

  • Sugar-Free
  • Gluten-Free
  • High Protein

Part of this shift to mindful nourishment is also to read what’s actually in the products you buy. Do you have any idea how much sugar or gluten you’re absorbing on a daily basis? Do you get enough protein each day? And do you drink enough water? By combining the healthiest food bars on the market with helpful advice for cooking and living, thinkproducts helps consumers take simple steps on their journey to healthy living.

thinkproducts has three different product lines: thinkThin protein bars, thinkThin dessert bars and thinkThin bites 100 calorie snacks.

thinkThin Bites come in three different flavors including white chocolate raspberry.

Jon hasn’t found a flavor that he doesn’t like. His favorite is the peanut butter or the lemon cream pie. We don’t have these in our house a lot, but like I said, I always have one or two on hand for him to take with him for emergencies. I love having products like this that I can depend on for safe eating.

For those out there following a gluten-free diet and trying to lose weight, these would be a great option. The high levels of protein are great for helping to keep you full. They would be great to have on-the-go and to add into a well balanced diet full of lean meats, vegetables & fruits.

thinkproducts can be found in many stores across the US. I like to pick ours up at Kroger when they have them on sale 10 for $10. They are also sold on the thinkproducts site or amazon.com.

I would like to thank thinkproducts for the complimentary samples of the bars that were sent to us. We really enjoyed them!
