Doctor's CarbRite Diet Toasted Coconut Bar Review

Doctor's CarbRite Diet Toasted Coconut BarDo you like coconut? Then you should try Doctor's CarbRite Diet Toasted Coconut Bar. This bar is particularly great because not only is the coconut taste spot-on, but the texture is deliciously flaky and chewy at the same time. The chocolate coating offsets the coconut nicely too. Other coconut flavored bars have been reviewed on here on Iateapie.net before, like Simbree Cashew Coconut Energy Bar and Raw Revolution Coconut and Chocolate Organic Live Food Bars, but this Doctors' bar has some definite advantages over the other two.

For example, while the Simbree and Doctor's bars clock in at approximately the same number of grams of fat (7 total grams [8 grams less than the Raw bar] and 1.5-2 grams of saturated fat), the Doctor's Bar weighs 57 grams and has 18 grams of protein, while Simbree is only 42 grams with 6 grams of protein. And unlike the 265-calorie Raw bar, Doctor's product has 200 calories.

Doctor's CarbRite Diet Toasted Coconut Bar also provides 24 grams of carbohydrates, only 1 gram of which is fiber, no sugars, and 21 grams of sugar alcohols (which can lead to stomach upset).

To me, this dense, intensely coconutty bar with high protein and modest fat is well worth the trade-off for the fiber and sugar alcohols (which thankfully haven't been a problem for my tummy). At $1.69 (keep in mind that these are New York prices!) this is one product I'll be buying again.
