Stumbled across a chat of FB about these today...wondering if anyone has tried them?

States they are made in a peanut/treenut free facility.

Did you end up buying them?  The vanilla ones sound so good.

No, when I went on FB, the reviews on their customer service were awful so I didn't order.

I just ordered them off amazon. They are labeled peanut/tree nut free facility.

We got the chocolate/vanilla. Good but very filling and a little odd after taste.

What did you read about cs Hezz?

SunRype makes some, too: https://www.sunrype.ca/products/sunrype-energy-chocolate-coconut

They come in other flavours too.  I haven't tried them, but know others that like them.

That people were waiting along time for orders.  I'm not seeing as much negative talk on their FB pages anymore.  Maybe they fixed the problem.

Just looked for them on Amazon and nothing came up.

They're called Libre Naturals now and I had one for snack this morning.  I enjoy them; the berry one is my favourite.  They're working on some sort of protein bite/bar product right now as well - I'm interested to see how they taste when they're released later this year.

They now sell peanut butter bars that are made in a different facility. I decided to order a sample box and they sent a peanut butter bar in the sample pack even though the box they used says nut-free... My daughter opened the package, saw the peanut butter bar and won't touch them lol

That would freak me out and swear them off, too. I have two boxes of the new Libre Naturals protein bars at home. They arrived yesterday and I am waiting until we have more time at home before trying one. (New foods = 2 hour watch)

Did you get the protein ones?  I don't want to try chia seeds so those are out for me.  Which kind do you typically eat?  I'm going to place a big order.  (pn/tn)

I have the Libre Naturals protein bars but haven't had a chance to try them yet, and won't be up for trying anything new for a few weeks.  They do have chia in them, and I eat chia regularly.  What's your hesitation with chia?  Libre Naturals only sources completely top-10-free ingredients and requires certificates from all suppliers, so there will be no PN/TN traces.  I ordered them as a post-workout snack because I'm so hungry after runs and need something portable to eat before driving home.  I enjoy the Tailwind recovery drink, but don't know how it compares protein-wise.  I have never tried any protein bar, other than some I made from scratch using dates, cocoa, and sunflower butter.  (And now safe dates are really hard to find.  I'll have to place a Gerbs order soon.)
