Apparently, limey Jamie Oliver isn’t the only one promoting a food revolution with America’s kids. While Revolution Foods (the makers of Jammy Sammies) isn’t doing crazy stuff like pouring sand into school buses and naming children stupid things like “Petal Blossom” and “Buddy Bear”, they are aiming to provide snacks school lunches to kids that are a bit more nutritious than pizza and Little Debbie snack cakes (no offense, Debbie).

While they’re more like a Nutrigrain bar that an actual sandwich, Organic Jammy Sammy snack size sandwich bars are everything a Whole Foods shoppin’ mom would want for their kid: organic, no trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, whole grain, wheat free and colored with things like “red cabbage extract”. 

Revolution Foods even has marketed this snack to the pickiest of kids. In addition to all the fancy-schmancy non-artificial ingredients (things like “red cabbage extract” instead of the standard coloring), they were even mindful enough to cut off the crusts, lest any child complain. The problem is so serious, we’ve developed entire product line to combat the issue.

As someone who grew up eating the aforementioned Nutrigrain bars, these little buggers are a fair contender. They’re square, smaller and don’t that that dreaded extra crust so there’s more fruit filling per square inch. While blueberry isn’t my favorite flavor in the world, the moist innards combined well with the oaty outside (I’d take a chance on trying the apple or strawberry ones). Since the bars use agave nectar instead of corn syrup, they’re still quite sweet. However, since they were cheap and they’re manageable enough for children’s hands (as well as mine) they’re a decent snack that’s easy to stash for snack time and won’t make you feel too terribly guilty when you eat it either.

Fits perfectly in my small childlike hands.

so did you like them?

Oh darn it, I was writing this from my cell phone and it failed to include the last paragraph.

Ben’s part is coming shortly, since he chose to buy these things.

good to know, I’m a sucker for a nutrigrain and these sound better.

I found some of these at a clearance “bent and dent” store in Clanton AL, paid $1. Only got one box, wasn’t sure how they would be. I LOVE them!! :) They are a better version of the cereal bar/nutrigrain bars. I’ve always been irritated wtih the Nutrigrain-type bars, many of which are candy bars in semi-disguise. These were good, and I wish our local stores carried them, BUT, I live in the sticks. Will need to take another trip to the store and stock up. I wonder if they would hold up in the freezer?

Thanks for the review.

I hope we are able to find some again as well! Maybe some different flavors this time. I think they would probably be great in the freezer, kind of like a frozen Pop Tart, but a bit healthier.

Thanks for reading!
