I was in the grocery store early this morning (yes there was something I HAD to get for school) and stumbled on Attune Dark Chocolate Probiotic Wellness Bars. Attune says, "this powerhouse probiotic bar packed with 5 times the live active cultures of yogurt." At just 99 cents per bar, I decided to get one and save it for a little chocolate fix later.
The taste of this dark chocolate square is 'melt in your mouth sublime' in the way that only good, high-quality dark chocolate can. I sampled my two squares and was left quite satisfied - although if someone had offered me another one, I certainly wouldn't have turned it down. I can usually convince myself that chocolate is good for me regardless, but this makes it even easier.
Each small 20 gram Attune Dark Chocolate Probiotic Wellness Bar provides just 80 calories, 6 grams of total fat (9% of the daily value), 3.5 grams of saturated fat (18% of the DV), no sodium, 3 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar, 1 gram of protein, and a whopping 30% of the RDA for calcium.
While I was deciding on what yogurt to purchase for the week, my eyes were drawn to a box of colorful nutrition bars - in the yogurt section. Of course, I was intrigued as to what these bars were doing in the yogurt section, so trying them was a must. Turns out that these bars are Attune Probiotic Wellness Bars which are supposed to promote digestive health and improve immunity due to the probiotic cultures in the bars - 5 times more than the active cultures of yogurt.
While Attune makes Granola probiotic wellness bars as well, I opted for the Chocolate variety, specifically an Attune Cool Mint Chocolate Probiotic Wellness Bar. Upon ripping off the corner of the package, the smell brought visions of Andes mints dancing in my head. However, once the wrapper came off, the visions subsided as a chocolate bar full of crisp rice tantalized my taste buds. The bar is scored in the middle with the word attune written on either side. Each bite is crispy and creamy at the same time. The smooth chocolate contains a slight hint of minty essence that serves its purpose without being overpowering. This bar tasted exactly like a sinfully delicious chocolate bar. Health was the last thing on my mind while enjoying the minty creation.
