Peanut Butter and Cookie Dough Balance Bars – Review

I have told you all in the past how much I love Balance Bars.  When they contacted me and asked me if I wanted to participate in their Summer Shape up Challenge and try two new flavors, I said, “Without a doubt, YES!”

I ventured out to Wal-Mart to find the two flavors I have been wanting to try for quite a while…Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter.  It took me a few stores to find them but I found them at a Wal-Mart less than 10 miles from my house (I just had to pick the right store!).

Once I found them, I was stoked!  I love peanut butter and cookie dough so I was super excited to try these!

First, let me tell you about the cookie dough.  It is a cookie dough flavor covered in chocolate.  It is 210 calories and each bar has 15 grams of protein.  As far as the taste of this one, it is ok.  It was not my favorite flavor I have had of theirs because I felt like it had too much of a “protein” bar taste.  It was good as far as protein bars go but it was not my favorite.

On the other hand…the peanut butter is the BOMB!  It seriously tastes like peanut butter fudge!  I have taken one to work for the past few days and it craves that sweet tooth that I get in the afternoon and keeps me satisfied through my afternoon tutoring sessions!  It has 200 calories and 15 grams of protein and it really does keep you satisfied.  LOVE!

Balance Bars are a great choice when you are looking for a protein bar that will keep you satisfied and tastes yummy!  They come in over 20 flavors and they follow a 40-30-30 nutrition profile.  That means 40% comes from carbs, 30% from protein and 30% from dietary fat.  That means you get a slow-glycemic response, muscle recover, and slow sustained energy.

Next time you are at Wal-mart either back to school shopping or grocery shopping, check out these Balance Bars for a quick snack!
