When we go to the store and I want to get him a treat (read "bribe him to be good"), I head to the sports nutrition section and pick up our "go to" bar because I know the ingredients are safe for him. I was delighted when NuGo sent me samples of bars from their "Free" line because these yummy bars contain no hydrogenated oils, trans fats, or waxy vegetable fat compounds and are soy, gluten, and dairy free!
NuGo Bars look delicious as well and we all know how important presentation is to our kiddos and grown ups too! They remind me a little of rice crisp type treats with drizzles of chocolate or vanilla icing squiggles.
The Free line offers three flavors to choose from: Dark Chocolate Crunch, Dark Chocolate Trail Mix, and Carrot Cake. I loved all three and before I tried them I thought Dark Chocolate Crunch would be my favorite. Dark Chocolate Trail Mix won in the test taste for me. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the wrapping; I imagined one of those bars that are all nuts stuck together with a glue-like sweetener. BUT the trail mix bar is a delicious blend of rice crisps, nuts and dried fruit. My mouth is watering as I type.
NuGo has several different lines of bars to choose from and even candy bars (yum!) The folks at NuGo have made an easy-to-read chart to help you choose which varieties suit your needs.
