With Earth Day right around the corner, more and more people are turning their eyes to what our goods are made from and where they came from. I get so excited when I learn that I brand I love uses not only safe ingredients, but ones that benefit the world at large. Balance Bar offers nutrition energy bars that not only boast protein and fiber-fueled labels, but also ones that are made with ingredients that are helping the rainforest! The Balance Bar Dark Chocolate Crunch bars are made with 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified Cocoa. I received a box of the Balance Bar nutrition energy bars in exchange for my honest opinion.
What did I think?
The Balance Bar Dark Chocolate Crunch bars are what I am deeming the energy bar of the future! These nutrient dense bars have 13 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber and in addition to being gluten-free and kosher, also host a bevy of antioxidants and vitamins! The thing is, these energy bars do not taste like they have all of that fuel packed into it! The chocolatey exterior, delightful crunchy inside and layers of chocolate flavor leave you thinking you are enjoying a chocolate bar, instead of pumping yourself full of healthy goodness!
Aside from filling me with lots of good nutrients, these energy bars fill me with a feeling of green goodness knowing that they are made from Rainforest Alliance Certified Cocoa. By being Rainforest Alliance certified, this assures consumers that Balance Bar cocoa beans are grown on sustainably managed farms that protect people and their surrounding ecosystems including water, soil and wildlife. I love knowing that they are socially responsible!
If you are looking for a great tasting gluten-free energy bar to introduce into your diet that will not only leave you feel satisfied between meals, but also satisfied with the knowledge they are leaving the world a better place, I urge you to check out Balance Bar!
