Zone Perfect Perfectly Simple Bars Review & Giveaway **Closed**


I really have some very awesome and unique nutrition bars to tell you about today called Perfectly Simple and they are made by Zone Perfect so you know that they are going to be so AWESOME!

They have 3 flavors in that particular group and I was sent these three to try:

1.) Cranberry Almond
2.) Toasted Coconut
3.) Peanut Crunch

I will start with the one that was my all time favorite, Toasted Coconut. I love that one! I pretty much love anything that tastes like coconut!

 
As you can see because the wrapping is really clean and that is because instead of using my pictures where the wrapping came out all bungled up and you couldn't read much, I decided to use their clean pictures so you could see all the writing.  In the Toasted Coconut, there are only 8 ingredients, 10 g's of protein and it is Gluten Free!

And that is the magical part of this whole bar! It is Gluten Free and made with only 8 ingredients so you get no other gunky stuff in there that is not needed. Plus, I believe that is why they called these 3 bars, Perfectly Simple, because they are not hard to make!
 
 
Peanut Crunch was my second choice of what I loved. Who doesn't love peanuts? If there hadn't have been a Toasted Coconut who trumps everything, then Peanut Crunch would have been my first favorite, it is that good! Again, you can see on the package that this one actually has less ingredients! It has 6 ingredients and is still 10 g's of protein and Gluten Free also. 
 
Those of you who are Gluten Intolerant, you just have found a whole new 3 bars that actually taste good! I have IBS so I still will pick up Gluten Free versus Regular if it has it because I am experimenting to see if the longer I stay on a sorta semi Gluten Free diet, if that will ease some of the symptoms of the IBS. I could be wrong, but it doesn't hurt to try.
 

Lastly, Cranberry Almond was my last choice. Now, I have to say, I loved the almonds but I am normally not a cranberry eater and definitely do not eat cranberry with turkey on Thanksgiving. I can eat it when mixed in a trail mix or something that hides the flavor a little and this bar did a pretty good job so it is not totally not good, just not my favorite.

I would still eat it if given the choice between that and another food I don't like so it's not the bar's fault that I don't like Cranberries. As you can see, this one has 10 ingredients, which is the highest of all three bars but it still has the 10 g's of Protein and still is Gluten Free.

The main reason all 3 bars are made with different flavors is because everyone is not gonna like the same thing, so that is how I choose to look at it. I don't want to lie and tell you it was my favorite or next to favorite and then something comes up later on down the road and I have to review another item with cranberries and I say I don't like them, then you will remember this review and think, okay, she changes her mind depending on the product.

So, NO, that will not happen because I say now that I don't like cranberries and will say so in another review down the road that has cranberries also. I made a pledge to everyone that I would tell you the truth no matter what and it is nothing against the product.

The bar was actually in just as good a shape as the other two and if you love cranberries, then you will love this bar. It is I who has the problem of not liking the cranberries, so do not take this as a negative review of the Cranberry Almond Bar, because it is not a negative review.
 
 
So, there you have it! The three new bars that Zone Perfect has come up with and calling it Perfectly Simple, was a great idea and something that is easy to remember when you go to the store. It joins 5 other kinds of nutrition bars such as Classic, Dark, Sweet & Salty, Cookie Dough and Fruitified!
 
I believe I would have loved the Sweet and Salty along with the Cookie Dough, heck I would have loved them all I think. That is why I signed up for the VIP access so that I know when there are new things coming out or promotions that Zone Perfect might be holding themselves. You ought to sign up too, if you can.
 
I found this under Our History:
Through the years, we've stayed true to our nutrition-based heritage. But today, we also depend on our creative approach to nutrition to help us discover unique flavor combinations.  
And so far, we've introduced over 20 delicious, nutritious varieties. Keeping in the spirit of creativity, in 2009 we launched our live.create. tour to celebrate the discovery of creative talent. 
To date, we've donated over $300,000 that'll be used to help keep music programs alive in public schools across the nation.
Zone Perfect has been so kind as to offer one winner the same bars that I just reviewed. Thanks so much and Good Luck! Open in the continental U.S. only.
