NuGo Dark Chocolate Nutrition Bar

Note: Thank you to NuGo for sending me this delicious bar to sample. WOW, was it good. It reminds me of a dark chocolate covered granola bar. It was nice and crispy. The layer of chocolate that covers the bar is thick. I love Nugo bars because they are 100% natural and full of protein. And seriously, this is so delicious. It's the perfect snack on the go. This was one of the best flavors I had so far from Nugo (yes, even the chocolate peanut butter, shocking), although they are all amazing tasting. And only 200 calories for this bar! I definitely give this bar a thumbs up!

From Nugo's website: Our decadent NuGo Dark bars use real cacao dark chocolate to enrobe our bars. Cacao is a natural source of flavonol antioxidants which help neutralize free radicals and protect your body from cell damage while tasting delicious. Real Dark Chocolate uses all the properties of the cocoa bean, including natural chocolate and cocoa butter. Coco butter is important because it can reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure; vegetable fat alternatives used by other companies do not carry these health benefits. Our dark chocolate protein bars prove: Delicious has a dark side®
