Balance Bars Taste Test

I'm a sucker for sweets. I blame my mother as I inherited her sweet tooth. My mom always prepared desserts for after dinner, usually desserts, as in plural so we had a choice. My mom also likes to indulge in a sweet snack on her “coffee breaks”, although she's not a coffee drinker. She prefers Diet Coke and candy bar.

I, too, like snack breaks while I'm working and/or driving. But I also feel guilty eating name brand candy bars while I'm sitting on my butt soaking up those calories. So I was super excited to be able to do taste test on the following Balance Bar flavors: Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat, Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle and Dulce De Leche & Caramel.

  • Balance products are a nutritional snack with the perfect balance of energizing ingredients and great taste.
  • Balance is packed with 5-7 grams of lean protein and is also an excellent source of fiber (5-6 grams), all for 190 calories or less.

Which flavor Balance Bar do you think will be my favorite?

Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Balance Bar

Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat: I'm a sucker for milk chocolate and caramel. Add in peanuts, and I'm in Heaven. This one looked the most appealing to me, so I tore into it first. It was actually better than any comparable candy bars currently out there. I was impressed that something so nutritious could taste so scrumptious.

Balance Bar Culce De Leche & Caramel

Dulce De Leche & Caramel: I have to make a confession that whenever I hear or see the word Dulce De Leche, I immediately think of  the word “lactation”. Yes, as in breastfeeding. Don't ask me why as I have no idea. Needless to say, I was not excited about trying this one as in the back of my mind I was thinking I was trying breast milk. I know I wasn't, and it tasted okay.

Trevor, who also partook in the taste test with me, declared this flavor his favorite of the bunch.

Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle Balance Bar

Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle: I'm not a big fan of dark chocolate despite it's health benefits, but I am a fan of pecan turtles. Had this been made with milk chocolate, it may have been my favorite.

I think you all figured out that the Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat turned out to be the winner of my taste test. I also found out Balance makes a Chocolate Peppermint Patty flavor, and had I the opportunity to try that, the outcome may have been different. I'm definitely going to buy one to try. And I honestly would choose one of these over a candy bar any day as satisfying my sweet tooth won't make me feel guilty now. Maybe I'll even share with my mom!

Balance is available at retailers everywhere, including Walmart and Amazon. You can find and follow Balance on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Or for more information, visit www.Balance.com.
