Spring is here and April is all about celebrating Mother Nature! Just in time for Earth Month, the Balance Bar Company, maker of one of America’s original nutrition energy bars, is excited to share the new Balance Bar Dark line – the first nutrition bar line on the market to bear the well-respected Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal.
Available in three decadent flavors all featuring a dark chocolate coating – Dark Chocolate Crunch, Dark Chocolate Coconut and Dark Chocolate Peanut – the Rainforest Alliance certification assures consumers that the cocoa beans are grown on sustainably managed farms that protect people and their surrounding ecosystems of water, soil and wildlife. It is an awesome seal to watch out for and support!
The new Balance Bar Dark bars are high in protein, certified gluten-free, an excellent source of antioxidants (Vitamins A, C, E), certified kosher dairy and contain 4 grams of fiber per serving. As with all Balance Bar products, the new Dark line follows the 40-30-30 nutrition principle – a proven formula developed by scientists to help stabilize blood sugar levels that represents the caloric ratio the body needs to enjoy lasting balanced energy and satisfy hunger for longer; 40% of total calories from carbs, 30% from quality protein and 30% from dietary fat.
I have to say the flavors are wonderful but the Dark Chocolate Coconut is my favorite (only because I really enjoy chocolate and coconut and they combine the flavors and you get perfection!) Truthfully, all of the flavors are delicious. Being pregnant right now I have sweet cravings and have enjoyed trying out the new flavors of the Dark line that give me that bit of sweet that I am craving but also give me a balance of protein as well so I don’t have a sugar fall-out minutes later.
