Good Food for Everybody from 88 Acres #Giveaway

Before we hit the Grand Canyon, Lauren tweeted to ask if I’d “found” 88 Acres. I supported their Kickstarter in 2014 and have been enjoying their seed based bars ever since. 88 Acres makes hand crafted, nut free bars in three flavors. Since then, they’ve launched other premium allergen free foods including “Seednola” and (delicious) seed butters in three varieties.

I chatted with Hannah from 88 Acres. She reminded me that 88 Acres came from the founder’s need to come up with tasty, healthy nut-free snacks for her husband. He has a life threatening nut allergy, so the founder (who grew up on an 88 acre organic farm) started “tinkering” with seed based bar recipes. Once their friends started asking for more, they launched 88 Acres. These bars are hand-crafted in Boston in a dedicated bakery free of peanuts, tree nuts, gluten, dairy, eggs and soy.

88 Acres sent me a sampler pack of bars and seed butters and some Seednola to enjoy. The bars come in three varieties: Apple & Ginger, Triple Berry and Chocolate & Sea Salt. The “Seednola” is made from the edges of the bars and comes in Apple & Ginger and Triple Berry. Newest to their line up is seed butter in Pumpkin Seed, Chocolate Sunflower and Vanilla Spice Sunflower.

88 Acres Apple + Ginger powered me through a 17 mile hike in the Grand Canyon!

The bars have a nice texture and are softer than some other seed based bars. The Apple & Ginger has a good amount of ginger so you have to be a fan. I am! I like all three flavors – especially the Chocolate and Sea Salt. I’ve shared these with a bunch of friends in the past and they generally get thumbs up all around.

The “Seednola” is made from the edges and extras from the bars. They sent me some Apple & Ginger Seednola and I love it. It’s great plain or with Forager Project’s Plain Cashewgurt. I gave some to Amanda. She loves the taste and crunch. She did say that the smell reminds her a bit of “bird food.” And “once you get past it, it’s great.” I didn’t notice it, but I believe in truth in advertising!

Amanda also tried the Chocolate Sunflower Seed Butter. She said, “It’s not super sweet like Nutella. It tastes more like cocoa powder added to the sunflower seed butter (a bit more savory than sweet). The chocolate hides the bitter taste of sunflower seed butter. This would be excellent on three ingredient pancakes, toast and crackers.” I LOVE the Vanilla Spice Sunflower butter despite generally preferring to pass on sunflower butter. The mix of cinnamon and spice is perfect for me. I eat it with a spoon or on a banana.

I’m a huge fan of 88 Acres, but you don’t have to take my word for it! They’ve offered to send one lucky reader a gift pack of 3 mini jars of all flavors of seed butter + 1 of each seed bar.

I can’t wait to try these!

      Hi Mary!

      Hannah from 88 Acres here. Thanks for your kind words! We love hearing from people who are uniquely able to enjoy our products because they meet your needs! The products that contain cinnamon are the Apple Ginger and Seednola, Triple Berry Bars and Seednola, and Vanilla Spice Sunflower Butter. The Chocolate Sea Salt Bars, Pumpkin Seed Butter, and Chocolate Sunflower Butter do not contain cinnamon. None of our products contain bananas. Hope that helps!

      Happy snacking!

      Hannah
