Enjoy a Sweet, Healthy Treat this Valentine’s Day with Balance Bar®
Valentine’s Day is filled with so many temptations. The chocolates, fancy dinner and red wine are the perfect way to kill the healthy eating habits of my New Year’s resolution. At least one thing I have learned about a healthy diet is that with the right substitutions and portion control, I don’t have to give up great taste. When it comes to getting my chocolate fix (needed daily!) I’ve found a guiltless way to indulge with Balance Bar®. Balance Bar®, one of the originators of energy bars and nutrition bars, has a variety of bars and flavors to choose from. Did I mention I like chocolate? For my Valentine’s Day treat this year I was delighted to receive a Balance-tine Day Chocolate Gift Assortment containing Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch and the new Chocolate Raspberry flavors.
Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch is from the Balance Bar® Gold line of bars. Containing the same balanced 40-30-30 nutritional ratio as all Balance Bars®, the Gold Line features three indulgent layers and is a great high energy food and snack alternative. The Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch is an update on a classic. There is now a crunchier cookie base and more mint flavor to this delicious chocolate cookie bar. The chocolate and cool mint come together in a satisfyingly crunchy delight for a perfect chocolate mint Balance Bar®. When I opened the wrapper to this tasty treat, the scent, taste and texture were very similar to a famous chocolate mint cookie I use to sell as a kid (and continue to over eat as an adult!) With Balance Bar® Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch I’ve found a more nutritional replacement that I can enjoy all year round.
