The wonderful people at Balance Bar provided me with a large box full of both the Dark Chocolate Caramel Macchiato and the Dark Chocolate Crunch bars to try out. The great thing about having so many, I was able to try them out as well as allow my family members to try them. So this review is actually written by me, but an accumulation of all of our opinions on the bars.
Let me tell you the first thing that caught my attention on these bars.
40-30-30 Nutrition Energy Bar
40% Calories from Carbs
30% Calories from Protein
30% From Dietary Fat
Not only that but they are Gluten Free, which isn't a problem for me. But I do know a lot of people who have to find good tasting foods and nutrition supplements that are Gluten Free.
Additionally, they are a great source of Antioxidants (Vitamins A, C, E, & D.
With 13 Grams of Protein and 4 Grams of Fiber
Kosher - 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified Cocoa.
Only 180 Calories per bar
Personally, I think these are great for athletes. A great bar to eat even at breakfast or a snack. To give you extra energy before/during a workout. It's got the protein needed for after workout recovery, but the calories and carbs to get you through a run or workout.
How do they taste?
This was the biggest question for me when I first received them. I'm not going to lie, I was a bit apprehensive at first. Usually I don't really like the taste of protein bars. However, I am being totally honest in telling you, they are pretty good.
In fact several of my family members who are huge chocolate lovers, love these. Additionally, I had a few kids try them, and they also really liked them.
So on how do they taste, they won several of my family members approval!
