I recently received a couple of samples of the new NuGo Dark Bars to try and review for you guys. NuGo Nutrition has a nice variety of gluten-free bars that are great for refueling after a tough workout or snacking on between meals. I especially like the NuGo Dark bars because NuGo uses only real dark chocolate, not the fake chocolate found in some protein bars.
There are two new varieties joining the NuGo Dark line. Those varieties are:
Chocolate Coconut - Ingredients: Dark Chocolate (unsweetened chocolate, cane sugar, cocoa butter), Non-GMO Soy Crisp (non-GMO soy protein isolate, tapioca starch, and salt), Tapioca Syrup, Agave Syrup, Coconut (coconut, cane sugar, dextrose), Non-GMO Brown Crisp Rice, Toasted Coconut, Almonds, Tapioca Starch, Natural Flavors, Gum Acacia, Non-GMO Soy Lecithin, Salt.
Spicy Dark – Ingredients: Dark Chocolate (unsweetened chocolate, cane sugar, cocoa butter), Non-GMO Soy Crisp (non-GMO soy protein isolate, tapioca starch, and salt), Tapioca Syrup, Agave Syrup, Non-GMO Brown Crisp Rice, Almonds, Cocoa Powder, Gum Acacia, Natural Flavors, Cayenne Pepper, Ancho Chili, Chipotle Chili, Cinnamon, Non-GMO Soy Lecithin, Salt.
I love the combination of chocolate and coconut, so I knew this bar would be a hit with me. I was not disappointed! There is a prefect balance of chocolate and coconut throughout this bar. I passed the Spicy Chocolate Bar along to a gluten-free friend who quickly fell in love with it! She is also a huge fan of the Chocolate Pretzel Bar, as am I.
