According to the information on the website these bars were created by Nutritionists and Registered Dieticians because they wanted good nutrition bars they could recommend to their clients. They have the optimal balance of protein, carbohydrates and fats. Certified wheat and gluten free. Soy and dairy free flavors. Sweetened with low glycemic organic agave. High protein and a good source of fiber. Healthy fat and nuts. No trans fats or palm kernel oil. No artificial colorings, flavors or preservatives. No artificial sweeteners or corn syrup. The bars come in 5 flavors, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cranberry Orange, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Almond Blueberry and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. (Are you drooling yet?) 🙂 All the bars have 210 calories, 10-13 g protein and they are Wheat and Gluten free and in addition the Cranberry Orange and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip are both Dairy free as well. The first bar I tried was the Chocolate Peanut Butter, as you can see from the ripped package I really could not wait to taste this. You can’t go wrong with this combination. ( Note to self take pictures before ripping package.) I really enjoyed the flavor and taste of this bar. It had the right amount of sweetness and the right amount of peanut butter. The first bite was chewy but the bar itself has a nice soft consistency. It was so delicious.
The Oatmeal Chocolate Chip bar tastes just like homemade cookies. Delicious, delicious, delicious. I warmed it a little and had it with my morning cup of coffee and I really wished I had another for later in the week. I really enjoyed it. The next flavor the Cranberry Orange bar, I like cranberries and oranges by themselves so I was a little skeptical of this combination. But I was pleasantly surprised. this combination was really very good. You were able to taste each flavor separately but at the same time together. Understand? Ok on to the Almond Blueberry, again delicious. The bar tastes like almond butter with fresh blueberries swirled in. Yum!
The Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip was very rich. It almost tasted sinful. More peanut butter than chocolate chips so if you are looking for a rich peanut butter bar with a hint of chocolate then this is the one for you. As you can tell I really liked these bars, they do not leave a weird after taste and they are so easy to digest. They are a great pre workout snack, or even a mid afternoon snack. Try them; you will see what I mean. If you sign up for their newsletter you will also receive e coupons as well as the opportunity to request/ suggest a new Zing bar flavor. I suggested a Coffee Chocolate bar.
