Clean Pantry Snacks

Product reviews by Lisa VanWilliams

Here are three USDA organic companies providing healthy snack options all made in the USA. What a great way to start the New Year by stocking up your pantry with better choices for yourself and your family. If you set yourself up to only have healthy choices to pick from, that's all you have to choose from unless you go out of your way! These are great for on-the-go healthy living and you can take them anywhere.

Ralph and Luella Gamber have been making nutritious and great tasting honey-based foods since 1954. Their product line now consists of energy bars, protein bars, energy gels, organic waffles, organic chews, kids specific snacks, and their own brand of Organic Wildflower Honey. They sell these at Whole Foods, REI, Sports Authority, and Trailblazer just to name a few.

We really enjoyed the waffles, my daughter finished her half before we got back to the car.
