We all have those times when we are just plain busy. We need to get all of the things done with very little time to do it in. This is especially true for Moms. Between the errands, household duties, work, and kids we are constantly on-the-go.
So what happens when we are the go? Without fail we end up feeling hungry with no options at hand so we will grab something quick and probably not so good for us while we are out and about that we eventually regret later. Keeping a nutrition bar in your bag like Balance Bar is a great option to crave that hunger while on-the-go. Not only will this save you time since you don’t have to go out of your way and stray from your busy schedule to find something to eat but you are also putting something into your body that is nutritionally beneficial.
Balance Bar is a nutritional snack in a convenient bar form that is easy to take with you. Just throw it in your purse, work tote, or bag as you head out the door. When that afternoon hunger strikes and you know dinner is still a while away, this is a great way to get nutrients like fiber and protein that your body needs but satisfy that sweet craving while being on-the-go. Balance Bar has nutrition packed into every bar through carbs, protein, and dietary fat to provide your body with slow glycemic response, muscle recovery support, and hunger satisfaction.
I was recently sent 4 of Balance Bar’s newest flavors to taste for myself. I decided to do my own little taste test to experience what Balance Bar offers in nutrition bars.
Balance Bar Taste Test
- Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat– contains 7g of Protein and 5g of Fiber in 2 snack sized bars. Under 200 calories. Also contains 4% Calcium, 4% Iron, and 3% Potassium. The chocolate really makes this bar, I like that this bar has quite a bit of firm chew to it.
- Dulce De Leche & Caramel– contains 5g Protein and 6g of Fiber. Under 200 calories. Also contains 6% Calcium, 6% Iron, and 2% Potassium. First of all, this bar is just beautiful to look at. You can see the various layers of deliciousness. Out of all of the flavors I was sent to try, this was the one that I was not too sure that I was going to like. But I was wrong, so wrong. This bar is absolutely delicious! It has a surprising cinnamon flavor to it and its soft not hard to bite into. One snack size bar is plenty to get your sweet fix while still getting some sort of nutrition. If you are looking for a nutrition bar that doesn’t taste like a nutrition bar this one is a good one especially if you like warm and cozy flavors like cinnamon.
- Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle– contains 7g Protein and 6g Fiber. Under 200 calories. Also contains 4% Calcium, 6% Iron, and 2% Potassium. This tastes like a decadent chocolate bar. The dark chocolate pairs perfectly with the pecans and caramel with a bit of a chew. If you are a chocolate lover, this is a way to eat your chocolate and nutrients too.
- Chocolate Peppermint Patty– contains 6g Protein and 6g of Fiber. Under 200 calories for 2 snack sized bars. Also contains 4% Calcium, 6% Iron, and 1% Potassium. Straight out of the package this smells just like a candy bar that would make a mint lover rejoice. Bite into this bar and you are immediately overcome by minty chocolate goodness. This bar has a sticky chew that lasts a lot longer than the other bars, it lingers in your mouth as it slowly melts leaving your mouth minty fresh.
It is hard to pick a favorite out of the 4 bars I was given to try out. I can see each one of these working to satisfy hunger in different scenarios. However, if I just had to pick a favorite, one that I just had to have on hand all the time for a quick hunger fix it would either be the Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle for when I need that chocolate fix or the Dulce De Leche & Caramel for when I want something sweet but not chocolate.
I think Balance Bar is a great option for busy Moms to have on hand. Just like keeping my phone with me when I’m on the go is important, I also like to keep a few nutrition bars in my purse at all times for when I need a snack on-the-go. They are so easy and convenient for travel especially summer road trips! Balance Bars can be found in Walmart stores nationwide or can conveniently be ordered and delivered to your home through Amazon.
