Dark Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt rocked my socks off after a define body class. The sea salt was something you never see in a protein bar, and it definitely enhanced the flavor. 10g of protein is nothing to shake your head at either.
For those with allergies, NuGo also makes a line of "Free" bars that are Gluten and Soy free as well as Vegan, using Rice protein as their main ingredient. They also have a Larabar-esque bar called the NuGo 10-with only 3 nuts, 3 fruits and 4 seeds. which can be bought for on their website (with free shipping!) You can see all their products and how they might fit into your lifestyle on their website.
In case you're curious, I eat bars when I'm in a pinch and forgot to pack a meal or snack, or if I would like a special treat. At least I'm getting extra protein right?! While I think whole food bars like Larabars are the top of the line, sometimes I crave something chocolatey. I just make sure it's a product where I will enjoy every bite! You can find NuGo bars in most natural foods stores, whole foods, or buy them online.
