What if there was a protein bar that’s delicious and tastes like your favorite candy bar? What if that bar is made with real dark chocolate, antioxidant-rich, vegan, and gluten-free? That’s just what you get with NuGo Dark Bars.
NuGo sent me a mixed box of their NuGo Dark bars to review and let me tell you, they are all amazing! I received two each of Dark Mint Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Coconut, Dark Chocolate Pretzel, Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip flavors. The dark bars also come in Dark Mocha Chocolate, Dark Peanut Butter Cup. and Dark Spicy Chocolate, for a total of 7 flavors.
NuGo Dark bars only use REAL Dark Chocolate which is full of health benefits and flavor. They only use the best quality dark chocolate unlike some other brands that use lesser quality ingredients and palm oil in their coatings. NuGo Nutrition prides themselves on health and taste of their products.
All four flavors I tried were excellent. When I finished my bars, I couldn’t wait to go out and get more at my local store. Thank goodness they are easy to find at Publix, Whole Foods and other health food stores everywhere (search for a store near you here).
The Dark Mint Chocolate is my absolute favorite of the flavors I reviewed. The taste reminded me of a Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie, only I could control myself and just eat the one bar instead of a whole roll of cookies. Ha. If you love mint dark chocolate, you will love it. Gives you the goodness of mint chocolate and if you’re like me and watching your portions and/or calories, a bar is only 200 calories.
The Dark Chocolate Pretzel is probably my second favorite flavor. You just can’t go wrong when you combine sweet and salty goodness! Dark chocolate and pretzels together are always a win in my book. It solves that craving for both and you take the last bite feeling satisfied with your snack choice.
Dark Chocolate Coconut and Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip came in tied for third for me. Both taste awesome and I found even a bit better slightly chilled (though, most chocolate is better chilled, don’t you think?). I love coconut, so the dark chocolate with the coconut is a great combination and kind of reminiscent of a Mounds candy bar. Chocolate chip is just always a classic great dark chocolate bar in my opinion, definitely a flavor to throw in your bag to avoid a mid-afternoon snack attack.
Every NuGo Dark Chocolate bar contains 10 grams of protein, is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, certified Kosher, and antioxidant rich. As someone who is vegan and always on the look out for high-quality, great-tasting protein bars, NuGo is one that I will continue to go-to from now on.
