I love candy bars! That is my biggest snack weakness, hand me a full bag of any type of candy bar and the bag will be empty within an hour. I have always tried to pick healthier snacks, but when you are craving a chocolate bar you need a chocolate bar! I was able to sample YummySnack® Bars™ which are a healthier alternative to a candy bar/chocolate bar.
Here is some info on Yummy Health:
Our products are much lower in sugar and processed starches—ingredients that can cause weight gain, cravings, and mood swings—than typical junk foods and even many so-called “healthy” snacks.
We use real natural ingredients with real nutrients, like cocoa, coconut, almond butter and flax seed in our YummySnack® Bar™, and real Wisconsin cheese and seasonings in our YummySnack® Chips™, for clean energy that won’t have them bouncing off the walls and crashing moments later!
It’s not just what we put in, but what we leave out: you won’t find gluten, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives in any of our YummySnack®products.
I received 7 varieties of the YummySnack bars to try. The flavors I received are Cookie Dough, Brownie, Chocolate, Coconut, Peppermint, Peanut Butter and Caramel Nut. Each bar, regardless of flavor, is Gluten Free, Low sugar (5-8 g, compared to the 20+ g of regular candy bars), High fiber (up to 10 grams), Protein (from 3-10 g), and 100% of your Omega-3s for the day(no fish taste, just awesome chocolate taste). It makes me feel good knowing I am not filling my body with tons of fat and sugar when I am craving a candy bar.
The first flavor I tried was the Cookie Dough. This flavor was really good, tasted just like a chocolate chip cookie but less sweet. This bar also kept me completely full until it was dinner time 5 hours later. This is huge for me since I am always snacking during the day because I seem to never stay full. I am also a big fan of the Peppermint flavor, chill these in the fridge or freezer and they taste just like a peppermint patty! My husband really enjoyed the Coconut, he said the taste and texture is the same as the Mounds candy bar. All of the flavors are really delicious, and I can’t wait to purchase more to have for my kids and for myself.
These are perfect for cravings, and also for kids that want a chocolate bar. They will love the variety of flavors offered, and you can feel good knowing you gave them something healthier than your average candy bar. YummyHealth also makes YummySnack Chips!
