I’ve made a yummy new discovery to help with my weight-loss goal this year, though the new line of Balance Bar Dark nutrition bars tastes downright decadent.
These “Balance Bar Dark” nutritional bars were just put on the market last November and I have to say, they’re really, really good. There are three options–dark chocolate with coconut (my favorite), dark chocolate with peanuts and dark chocolate crunch.
When my daughter and I went to check out the new Fantasyland at Walt Disney World, I threw a couple in my backpack to help hold us over until we ate our meals. We ended up sharing them with some friends we bumped into at the park and they felt exactly like I did…that they tasted more like candy bars than nutrition bars.
And here’s the bonus: they’re the first nutrition bar on the market to earn the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal.
They’re also gluten-free, certified kosher dairy, high in protein and a great source of antioxidants. The dark line follows the 40-30-30 nutrition principle– a proven formula developed by scientists to help stabilize blood sugar levels that represents the caloric ratio the body needs to enjoy lasting balanced energy and satisfy hunger for longer; 40% of total calories from carbs, 30% from quality protein and 30% from dietary fat.
I already mentioned they’re really good, right?
(Readers note: I was sent a few of these bars to sample and share with friends so that I could write an honest review of my thoughts. I was not otherwise compensated for this review.)
