South Beach Living Snack Bar Delights (Whipped Chocolate Almond) Review

South Beach Living Whipped Chocolate Almond Snack Bar DelightsSouth Beach Living Snack Bar Delights in Whipped Chocolate Almond Snacks was something I picked up to help tide me through a weekend getaway. Almonds and chocolate are a classic combination as well as a favorite of mine, so the combo - not to mention the "whipped" quality - proved too intriguing for me to resist, which is probably why I spent the $7.99 on a box of 6 bars, instead of buying it individually like I would normally do.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (28 grams)
Calories: 100
Total Fat: 3.5 grams, 5%
Saturated Fat: 2 grams, 10%
Sodium: 115 mg, 5%
Carbohydrates:14 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugar: 6 grams
Sugar Alcohols: 4 grams
Protein: 6 grams

I unwrapped one of the small 28 gram bars while travelling and took a bite. Initially, the almond-chocolate combination seemed artificial and strange, but then found myself enjoying the bar more and more with each bite, as I got over the super sweet flavor (these bars contain sugar alcohols). The almonds studding the nougat-like center were a nice touch. Alas, the bar was gone before too long, so I didn't really enjoy the experience much.

Each one of the South Beach Living Whipped Chocolate Almond Snack Bar Delights provides 100 calories, 5% of the daily value for total fat and sodium, 10% of the DV for saturated fat, 3 grams of fiber (12% of the DV), 6 grams of sugars, 4 grams of sugar alcohols and 6 grams of protein. There is also 20% of the daily value for calcium.

This is a small bar, but they did try and pack as many grams of protein and fiber as they could. The ingredients list might be a tough read for some - lots of different kinds of sugars, sugar alcohols & sucralose (no wonder this bar tastes so sweet), although there is no high fructose corn syrup. The protein is a blend of whey & soy.

Overall, given the flavor, nutrition, and price, I probably will not be adding this to my roster of favorite nutrition bars and I prefer the South Beach Living Chocolate Mint Snack Bar Delights to this flavor.
