Barnana: NEW Coconut and Peanut Butter Flavors!

If you regularly read The Fussy Fork, you know how much I love Barnana’s line of chewy banana bites.  (See my post on their original and chocolate flavors here.)  The exciting news is that they have now come out with two additional flavors: Coconut and Peanut Butter!!  Both flavors are tasty and are of course organic, vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO.

The coconut bites are seriously good.  The dried banana and coconut have been formed into cubes to make a sweet snack.

And you will feel vindicated when you look at the ingredient list which simply reads: “organic banana, organic coconut.”  It’s great to have a healthy snack to be able to take on the go!

The peanut butter Barnana bites might be my new favorite.  Anyone who has ever enjoyed a peanut butter and banana sandwich knows how well these flavors go together.

These banana bites which are covered in a thick, rich layer of peanut butter are sweeter than their coconut counterparts.  They almost taste like a dessert and are a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth!

I hope you enjoy the new Barnana flavors as much as I have.  Who knows what they’ll think of next?!  My vote? A chocolate peanut butter Barnana flavor! YUM!!

Love bananas?  Then it’s time to try Barnana’s chewy banana bites.  Barnana dehydrates organic, bite-sized pieces of bananas to create a vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free snack.  The best part is that bananas have a ton of health benefits — they are high in fiber and potassium, protect against muscle cramps, and aid in digestion.   To learn more about the benefits of eating bananas, check out the link below:

The ingredient list for Original Barnanas simply reads: “Organic Bananas.”  Each Original piece is chewy and sweet– the natural banana sugars slightly concentrated from the dehydration process.  They’re perfect for a snack any time of day.  Remember that the browning of the pieces is natural.  After all, Barnana doesn’t use preservatives or chemicals to artificially keep the bites yellow!

Barnana takes it up a notch by dunking the Original Barnana in chocolate.   Chocolate + banana = bliss.  I would venture to say it is impossible to eat just one of these bites.  In fact, the bag pictured is actually the SECOND bag I purchased.  My boyfriend ate the first bag, before I could take photos!

I’m not the only one impressed with the Chocolate Barnanas.  In 2012, VegNews listed the chocolate bites in their “This Week’s Must-Have” section stating they would “make the perfect addition to any backpacking snack pack or campfire menu.”  For the full review, click on the link below:
