Nugo Organic Protein Bar Review

If you want lots of yummy flavor & fuel that you can feel pretty good about eating, Nugo’s got it. These bars are chock full of organic ingredients. Talk about a GIANT leap up from your typical snack bar.
If I had to pick one, the double dark chocolate bar takes the cake in regards to overall taste & enjoyment. I love the health boosting qualities of chocolate (when in its pure form & without additives)
Here are a few tweaks I would make with these bars:
-Lower sugar content
-More raw ingredients (like raw cacao)
-Less or no use of soy
-Specificity on what “natural flavors” are
Here is what these bars have that many bars do not:
-A laundry list of organic ingredients (these are Certified Organic bars)
-All non-gmo ingredients
-A decent macro ratio (5g fat/26g carbs/10g protein)
In my pantry, I see these bars as a healthy treat/snack for our 6 year old and a candy bar replacement for me. I like to keep my sugar intake at bay, thus, I won’t be eating several of these a day. However, a big bravo for the use of organic ingredients. I find myself looking for more raw, though! I recommend them to someone looking to make a healthier swap in their junky-snack routine, one that will provide them with fat, carbs & protein.
