ZonePerfect Dark Chocolate Bars are some of the tastiest I've tried. The Zone Perfect Dark Chocolate Almond and Double Dark Bars are sensational, the ZonePerfect Dark Mocha is divine, and don't even get me started on the deliciousness of ZonePerfect Dark Chocolate Strawberry Bar. With so many to choose from, I still couldn't help trying a different variety, the ZonePerfect Dark Chocolate Caramel Pecan Bar.
I opened the box, pulled out a bar and unwrapped it, excited based on how much I liked the other flavors. I took a bite of the deliciously dark-colored bar but found myself a little disappointed with the taste. To be honest, this wasn't my favorite flavor. Sure, the dark chocolate was pleasant, but I couldn't taste much caramel or pecan, and the overall effect just came across as too sweet. The caramel layer was too saccharine, and it didn't taste like real caramel to me; not to mention that there was nary a pecan to be seen!
Each 45-gram ZonePerfect Dark Chocolate Caramel Pecan Bar provides 190 calories, 7 grams of total fat, 4.5 grams of which is saturated fat (11% and 23% of the daily value), 9% of the DV for sodium, 1 gram of fiber, 13 grams of sugar, 12 grams of protein, and lots of vitamins and minerals. This bar has the most fat and sat fat of the ones I tried, so that gives it another strike in my book.
The ingredients list is quite lengthy too. Overall, this bar was okay - it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't anything special either. There are just way too many other delicious ZonePerfect dark Chocolate varieties for me to settle for this ZonePerfect Dark Chocolate Caramel Pecan Bar. I received samples from the company, but it's available at their online store at $18.35 for a 12 pack.
