I was so happy to receive some samples from Mark at Heart Thrive in my mail this week. I was so anxious to try these snack cakes as my friend Vicki has been raving about the company's other product, Suncakes. I was fortunate to get one of each flavor to review:
Heart Thrives are a delicious, VEGAN and NON-GMO energy bar. Made with oats, soy and dried fruits, each Heart Thrive supplies 30% daily PROTEIN, FIBER and CALCIUM.
Heart Thrives are made from ingredients with a low glycemic index that metabolize slowly providing sustained energy for hours.
Heart Thrives are doctor recommended as ready to eat meals and snacks for people looking to maintain blood sugar balance with slow-burning, low-glycemic nutrition. They are high in fiber and low in fat and sugar.
I am so grateful to this company for producing this "meal in a cake". I can throw these in my purse and have them on hand when I get stuck out somewhere and I don't want to cave to fast foods and sugars. They average about 160 calories per cake (give or take depending on flavor). They are wheat and dairy free! They aren't certified gluten-free and this is what the website states:
California Suncakes™and Heart Thrives® are wheat-free. However, they may contain trace amounts of gluten, so we do not label them as gluten-free. Our oats are milled at a facility that also processes other grains. When switching grains, the first several hundred pounds that pass through the mill are rejected, thereby minimizing possible traces of other grains. If you are gluten-intolerent, exercise caution; but for most individuals the potential trace amount of gluten is insignificant.
If you ORDER please mention "She Hath Done What She Could" in the comment field when you check out. I think you will love this heart shaped little snack!
