Zing Nutrition Bars Add New Flavors

I have been a fan of Zing Bars for a long time – over two years!  When I heard that they had added two new flavors to their line-up, I knew that I needed to sample those bars as soon as I could get my hands on them.  Zing Nutrition heeded my call and sent the new varieties along for me to sample.

I am not going to lie, I ate the dark chocolate hazelnut bar for dessert!  The bar is chocolate covered and I figured it wouldn’t hurt to get an extra nutritional bang for my dessert buck, right?  It was heaven in a neat little package!  I ate the coconut cashew crisp after a 6 mile run to refuel.  I had a 5K to run and hour or so after the 6 mile training run and the bar did a great job of keeping me going until I was done with the 5K.  I loved the combination of the coconut and cashew.

There are six other varieties of Zing bars:

  • Chocolate coconut
  • Chocolate peanut butter
  • Peanut butter chocolate chip
  • Oatmeal chocolate chip
  • Almond blueberry
  • Cashew cranberry orange

The above listed bars are also free of gluten, corn and soy, but the chocolate peanut butter, oatmeal chocolate chip and the almond blueberry do contain dairy.
