Leclerc Praeventia Bars (Almond & Apple With Green Tea Extract) Review

Leclerc Praeventia Almond and Apple Bars With Green Tea ExtractI have been waiting to try some of the Leclerc Praeventia products for a while now, especially after trying the delicious Leclerc Praeventia Dark Chocolate Chip 70% Cocoa with Red Wine Extract Cookies. The opportunity came up on a recent trip to Target, where I finally spotted a box of Leclerc Praeventia Almond & Apple Bars on sale for $2.69.

Leclerc Praeventia products are made from ingredients with well known benefits according to their website. In the case of this Almond & Apple Bar, it contains inulin, a prebiotic dietary fiber which promotes digestive health, in addition to green tea extract and dark chocolate (70% cocoa), ingredients known for their polyphenols (antioxidants) content.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 25 grams (2 bars, 1 pouch)
Calories: 100
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 25 mg, 1%
Carbohydrates:16 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugar: 7 grams
Protein: 2 grams

Well, enough reading about the product, it was time for a taste test and I was not disappointed. Oh the bar is so delightful, but it's barely more than a few bite-fuls! Each "pouch" (as Leclerc describes their wrappers) contains 2 "bars" they say. I say, that it's really just ONE bar broken into 2 pieces, but as I mentioned, it's really tasty. Each granola-like bar is chewy and full of body, with bits of dehydrated apple and almonds that are somewhat discernible. The overall sweetness of the bar is just about perfect and the prominent dark chocolate coating on the bottom takes each bite to a new, delicious level.

Each 25 gram pouch of Leclerc Praeventia Almond & Apple Bars provides 100 calories, 4 grams of total fat (6% of the daily value), 1 gram of saturated fat (5% of the DV), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 7 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein. If you look through our nutrition bar reviews, we describe ONE 28 gram bar as tiny - so can you imagine what 2 bars that weigh 1/2 of that each is like?!

Although these bars are small they are the most delicious 100-calorie pack that I have ever had. The short and sweet ingredient list starts off with agave nectar and goes on to list a few more different types of sweeteners.

If I can find Leclerc Praeventia Almond & Apple Bars (or Leclerc Praeventia Dark Chocolate Chip 70% Cocoa with Red Wine Extract Cookies) on sale again, I would buy this again as a not-so-bad way to satisfy my sweet tooth when it starts acting up again.
