Zone Perfect Dark Mocha BarThe Mocha flavored bars that have been reviewed so far on Iateapie.net, Kashi TLC Dark Mocha Almond Bar and Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Bar, have all gotten rave reviews - so I only expected good things from my ZonePerfect Dark Mocha Bar.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 45 grams
Calories: 180
Total Fat: 5 grams, 8%
Saturated Fat: 3.5 grams, 18%
Sodium: 210 mg, 9%
Carbohydrates: 21 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugars: 13 grams
Protein: 12 grams

When I unwrapped the bar, I was struck by the intense coffee scent - if you don't like the smell of coffee, then this is not for you, because this smells like the real thing! I took a bite, and was overwhelmed in such a good way. This bar is a heavenly combination of rich dark chocolate and espresso flavor (and yes, espresso is one of the ingredients). Thankfully, it's not overly sweet and in fact, this bar reminds me a lot of dark chocolate-covered espresso beans, which I absolutely adore. Add some vitamins and minerals and some filling protein, and this is a healthyfied version of the candy snack!

Each 45-gram ZonePerfect Dark Mocha Bar provides 180 calories, 8% of the daily value for total fat and a whopping 18% of the DV for saturated fat - high saturated fat is something that ZoneP Bars have in common. There is also 9% of the DV for sodium, 1 gram of fiber, 12 grams of protein, and 13 grams of sugars.

The nutrition facts & ingredients list can be seen at the ZonePerfect website. I received samples from the company, but the ZonePerfect Dark Mocha Bar is available at their online store at $18.35 for a 12 pack.

I can't stress enough how deliciously the coffee and chocolate flavors mingle together in this rich nutrition bar. This may just be one of my new favorites in taste. That said, although there is a lot of protein, there is a lot of saturated fat in just one bar, so I would probably buy either Kashi TLC Dark Mocha Almond Bar or Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Bar before this (neither is as tasty, but both have better nutrition facts).
