I’m a busy girl.
I’ve got this whole baby thing going on. I work 45-50 hours a week. I am coordinating a wedding this weekend at the SF Zoo. I like to fit in 4-5 workouts every week. I have 3 fur babies and a hubby to take care of.
So yeah, I’m busy.
Being busy means I need easy snacks on the go. Sometimes easy meals on the go too. I’ve made it no secret that NuGo Dark has been of my favorite nutrition bars for years. My bestie introduced me to them years ago and I was hooked on the spot. So much so that I was willing to spend ridiculous shipping fees on obscure websites just to get the goods.
And then I discovered them at Whole Foods. And even at airports too. And a slew of new flavors met my eyes…and my stomach.
While I’m a die-hard NuGo Dark fan, I was open to trying each and every new bar they offered. This includes the Slim bar they just released and so kindly sent to me:
NuGo Slims are, an almost sugar free, all-natural bar dipped in REAL Dark Chocolate with no maltitol. With only 2g sugar (coming from our REAL Dark Chocolate), these bars pack 15g protein and either 9 or 10g fiber. (Source)
I knew I’d want the Roasted Peanut first and I made an excellent choice. I loved the subtle sweetness, the true peanut taste, the chocolate coating, and the dryness of the bar. Yes I’m one of those people that like a drier bar. It makes me feel more full.
I stashed the Brownie flavor in my purse for running errands with the hubby on Sunday. Sure enough we needed a mid-day snack. He loved the chocolate! While I thought it was quite tasty, I preferred the peanut.
But you know what I noticed online? NuGo is offering a Raspberry Truffle flavor? Oh my! Hey NuGo – need a taste tester???
So if you haven’t jumped on the NuGo bandwagon, get on it will you. And just an fyi, these thoughts are all my own. Just ask anyone at HLS who saw me hoarding multiple leftover bags of NuGo’s and squealing with delight
Are you a NuGo fan? What’s your favorite?
