Halo Bars – The Sinfully Healthy Snack Review and Giveaway
I worked so hard to get “in shape” (or at least more in shape than I was) before our family took a couple of beach vacations. Somehow over the month and half though I have slipped back into some seriously bad habits. Cereal at bedtime, lattes from local drive thrus (thank you gift card), experiments with baking desserts… it all spells out some extra poundage. Not cool. Well that’s when ProBars new line of Halo Bars literally came knocking at my door. I was given the opportunity to do a Halo Bar Review and boy did it come at a good time.
When you first hear that there is a healthy, all natural, low sugar bar that tastes like a dessert, you might have some serious doubts. I did! Once I bit into the chewey deliciousness of the Smores Halo Bar, all of my doubts were washed away… seriously… with the glass of water I washed it down with. (Remember? I’m trying to get back into healthy!) I easily throw a few Halo Bars into my purse and even into a lunchbox for our family when we’re on the go!
According to their website Halo is:
- Sinfully Healthy Snack
- Certified Organic
- Only 150 Calories
- Low in Sugar
- Vegan and Dairy Free
- All Natural
- Good Source of Omega 3 & 6
Halo Bars come in 4 mouth watering, not healthy tasting, flavors. They seriously taste like a decadent dessert. S’mores, Rocky Road, Nutty Marshmallow, and Honey Graham. My favorite is Nutty Marshmallow… no… Smores… uh… I can’t decide! Whatever your favorite is, you can easily find their nutritional information on the ProBar website when you click on each flavor. They also provide you with an easy way to purchase these bars for you and your family in the Probar Online Store. While $1.39 per bar isn’t cheap, it’s not necessarily overpriced either. I know there are some cookies on the market out there with a lot more sugar and UN-natural ingredients that go for the same or more.
Here is more on what Halo has to say about themselves: Although there are lots of organic, nutritious ingredients in HALO bars, the primary sugar we use is organic brown rice syrup. In contrast to typical sugars like corn syrup, brown rice syrup has a low glycemic value and does not cause a sudden spike in blood sugar after consuming it. This is because the sugar profile in this syrup is 50% soluble carbohydrates, 45% maltose and 3% glucose. The glucose is immediately absorbed and metabolized, maltose takes from 1-1.5 hours, and soluble carbohydrates take 2-3 hours to be metabolized. This results in a constant supply of energy spread over a long time rather than a sudden rush. HALO bars have zero trans fats or partially hydrogenated oils.
