Has anyone tried these products from Enjoy Life Foods? They claim to be free of the eight most common allergens.

I tried doing a search on this product but couldn't find anything. I'm just curious if anyone has tried these items.

We have tried the granola bars. They were good. More on the dense side, but good.

i 2nd helensmom ... definitely on the dense side, but good. we have had the granola bars, which i didn't really care for, but the cookies (especially the snickerdoodle!) are good ... just dense (probably because they are gluten and dairy free as well)

their chocolate chips for baking are pretty good. the snicker doodles are the only cookies that taste good though o0o

ahhh, enjoy life. i remember when i first found this brand in the healthfood store. i literally cried.
we love these products. the granola cereals are good. i've made muffins from the recipe on the back. we think ALL of the cookies are good. :)
the best thing is the that they sell prepackaged cookies in twos, so i can grab a few of those and our pa child can have a special store bought treat.
we really like the trail mixes, too.
alas, our youngest was recently diagnosed with a sunflower seed allergy that our allergist thinks will progress like a peanut allergy. so we are no longer buying enjoy life foods.
but... i HIGHLY recommend them. :)

We're not huge fans of Enjoy Life foods (although we give the company as a whole 2 thumbs up!). We only have a peanut allergy in our household so we don't have to eliminate gluten and dairy, etc. so we've been able to find tastier peanut/tree nut free options.
But again, we LOVE the company and their mission.

I appreciate what they are trying to do, but we tried the granola bars and they were pretty bad. I took them to the teacher at our school with celiac. She couldn't stand them either. (She asked, "Did anyone TASTE these before they put them out?") Maybe it was the dense texture someone else mentioned, and their other products may be much better. So far we have been able to find other things since my son is only PA. Hope this helps. I really do think they are a good company.

My son eats the bars. Kroger carries them. He likes them but I think they need more taste. When you have not had anything else to compair it to it does not matter. This is the only product that we have tried.
Good luck,
Suzette
