NuGo Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar Review

NuGo Peanut Butter Chocolate BarThe NuGo family of products come in many different incarnations - all with a nutritional or diet realted claim. There is regular NuGo (100% natural, low fat & low glycemic), NuGo Dark (dairy free& vegan), NuGo Organic (vegan & 10 grams of protein), NuGo Free (wheat-, soy-, and dairy-free plus high fiber), NuGo 10 (gluten & dairy free, vegan & raw), Crispy Cat (gluten & dairy free, vegan & organic) and Smarte Carb (sugar free, high protein & low glycemic). I picked up a NuGo Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar for only $0.99 and couldn't wait to try this all natural, low fat treat.

NUTRITION FACTS

This particular bar was advertised as being made with real milk chocolate and although I tend to go for dark chocolate, real chocolate in any form is appealing! I wasn't sure where this would place me on the fullness-o-meter, but I excitedly unwrapped it to find out. The bar is a crunchy mix of "crisped soy nuggets" drizzled with milk chocolate. The texture was crunchy yet satisfying, and the peanut butter and milk chocolate blended together for pure PB & chocolate bliss. One bar is 50 grams in weight, so I was definitely satisfied.

As for calories, NuGo Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar provides 180 of them, with just 5% of the daily value for saturated fat, 8% of the DV for saturated fat, 2.5 grams of fiber (8% of the DV), 13 grams of sugar, and 11 grams of protein. Each bar is also infused with hefty doses of various vitamins and minerals for added nutrition. Check out the ingredients at NuGo.com.

So far I have tried this NuGo bar and NuGo Smarte Carb Sugar Free Chocolate Black Cherry Bar and I've been very impressed with both. Should you be lucky enough to find a NuGo bar, don't pass it up - especially if you can find it at the bargain price of $0.99 like I did.
