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.
Each of the new bars is free of gluten, soy, corn and dairy. They contain 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per bar, which will help keep you satisfied until your next meal.

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.
