Freely Crave Chocolate, Peanuts, and More with Balance Bar!3:10 PM
*This was was sponsored by the good folks at Balance. Opinions and cravings are all my own.
Don't eat that. Don't do that. Keep this out of your fridge.
Are you a bit tired of hearing all of the things you shouldn't eat or do or enjoy? I don't know about you, but once someone tells me that I shouldn't do something, I seem to want it even more. And that includes my food!
That's why I'm kind of excited to have a new way to crave freely. Balance has asked me to try four of their bars to tell you about, and the experience has been quite delicious!
First, let me say that I am a bit of a binge eater. If I buy a carton of ice cream, I eat it until it's gone. Bags of chips stand no chance against my late-night cravings. And breakfast is the worst: I often skip it until I see a bag of chocolate taffy in the kids' parade loot. I eat it at my desk and pretend it's a real meal. Somebody stop me!
But with the boxes of Balance bars in my cupboard, things have gone a bit better for me. When I crave dark chocolate turtles, I reach for a bar. When I want chewy mint goodness, there's a bar for me. If caramel or peanut butter or pecans or drizzles of cream are on my mind, then I have an option. Cravings don't have to make me "bad" anymore.
So, how do they taste? I have found myself time and again wondering how they can taste so good. There is none of that weird aftertaste that comes with some products that claim to be "nutritional".
Balance products give me a nutritional snack alternative in a super easy to take anywhere solution. This means that on days that I'm sitting at my desk and too frazzled to snack healthy, I'm getting a snack that is just as satisfying as on the days that I'm running all over the amusement park with the kids. And they have less than 200 calories each!
So which one would you like to try? The flavors I sampled included:
- Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat
- Chocolate Peppermint Patty
- Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle
- Dulce De Leche & Caramel
