I've tried lots of different varieties of nutrition and snack bars, so I have a short list of my favorites as well as my least favorites. I was actually looking for one of my old standbys while in the drugstore today, but I found that the one I was looking for was out of stock. I scanned the various other types, and, as I bemoaned the unavailability of my preferred flavor, stumbled upon a new, fantastic bar in the process. That bar? Balance Peanut Butter Bar.
I don't know why I haven't really gotten into the Balance Bar brand before now, because really, they're delicious! This one was especially good - the peanut butter taste was perfect (a word I don't use lightly). It wasn't at all artificial-tasting, just chewy and peanutty. Honestly, my first thought on eating this was, "I've died and gone to peanut butter heaven ." I couldn't believe how quickly I finished it!
A 50-gram Balance (Original) Peanut Butter Bar provides 200 calories, 7 grams of total fat, of which 3 grams is saturated (11% and 15% of the daily value), 160 mg sodium (7% of the DV), 15 grams of protein and 21 grams of carbohydrates which includes 17 grams of sugar but only 1 gram of fiber. There is also 25% of the daily value for most vitamins and minerals. This bar is consideed a low GI bar - 40/30/30 which means 40% of calories from carbohydrates and 30% each from protein and fats (source).
I bought this bar for just $1.89 at the drugstore. This bar is a big bar with big taste. If you like peanut butter, you must try this! And I know I intend to buy it again.
