Nu Go Nutrition to Go Bars Review


 
I recently reviewed some new protein bars that I would like to share with you today called NuGo and you will love them as much as I do once you try them!
 
I got three coupons for free bars that I took to Kroger and redeemed for the three flavors that I thought I would like the best. The ones I got were the Mocha Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Pomegranate in the Organic line and the Double Dark Chocolate in the Organics.  There are a lot more flavors and kinds to choose from but my Kroger only had the NuGo Darks and Organics to choose from.
 
Let's start with my very favorite, the Mocha Chocolate. If you love the taste of chocolate and coffee mixed together, then this will be your favorite also!
 
 
Boy, I am not kidding when I mean coffee flavor to the max! You will even feel and taste the coffee grinds just a little but that is what I really liked the most about this yummy little bar! And talk about dark chocolate! This bar is covered in what I consider double trouble dark chocolate.
 
But these protein bars are also good for you, too. So, don't let the pictures fool you. Here is how they stack up:
 
*REAL Dark Chocolate
*High Protein
*Low Fat
*Vegan
*Pareve
*Certified Gluten Free
*Certified Kosher
*Antioxidant Rich
*Healthy for the Whole Family
 
Cocoa 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.   Cacao is a natural source of flavonol antioxidants which help neutralize free radicals and protect your body from cell damage. And these bars have all of that in them and taste good too! They each have 10 grams of protein in them.
 
 
And very surprising to me, the Dark Chocolate Pomegranate in the Organic line was also very good! I thought the Double Dark Chocolate would have been my next favorite but I actually liked the awesome flavor of Pomegranate mixed with the dark chocolate.
 
The benefits here vary slightly:
 
*REAL Dark Chocolate
*High Protein
*Low Fat
*Vegan
*Certified Organic
*Certified Kosher
*Antioxidant Rich
*Healthy for the Whole Family
 
It is the Pareve that is missing in this bar but it is still good for you and tastes absolutely awesome! Pomegranate is rich in anti-oxidants and the bars are certified USDA organic so you can feel good about eating them for afternoon snacks if you feel yourself needing something to get thru the rest of the day and you prefer eating organic.
 
 
This was another organic bar that is super good for you if you are into chocolate and like your snacks to be organic. This one is This USDA certified organic bar is loaded with vitamins and minerals, packed with soy protein. And of course, it has all the other good things that the Pomegranate bar did because it is also organic.
 
I will say that the ones I would have really liked to have tried were the Crispy Cat Candy Bars but my Kroger didn't have them, which I didn't even know about them until I went on the website and started looking around. I think if I am near any other Kroger stores in the future, I will look for some so I can see what the difference is. But, they sure do sound good and I love crispy snacks the best! The two flavors that they have are Toasted Almonds and Mint & Coconut, those are my top two things I love in a candy bar so I know I will love them.
 
 
Like, I said earlier, there are several other kinds along with flavors, so go check them out so see what all they have that might whet your appetite! I myself am going to keep looking around so I am better prepared the next time I am in a Kroger store so I can see if they have any of these other delicious flavors. Here is the Store Locator so you can check and see where they are in your part of the woods. Oh, they also have Sample Packs where you can get several flavors in one pack!
