0 Probar Review

As you know, I have been on a search for great tasting “healthy” foods. A great source for a quick meal is the ProBar. There are several different kinds and they use the finest all natural, real, wholesome, and organic ingredients to make real food that is delicious.

When I originally saw the ProBar collection, the first thing that stuck out for me was the Halo bars. Mostly from the attractive artwork that is the logo and also I saw the word S’mores. I just had to check them out. When I went to their site, I discovered that these healthy snacks are available in many different varieties. They have Halo and Fruition which are snack bars and Sweet & Savory and Art’s Original Collection which are meal bars.

I don’t live a vegan lifestyle, but I have noticed more energy overall, since I’ve been eating so many natural snacks instead of fatty snacks that I’ve picked up while hungry in the store. I’m not a huge snacker in the way of wanting snacks all the time, but when you are hungry and going up and down those shopping aisles, Cheetos look really good. The problem with my eating habits typically, is that I don’t eat enough food.  I’ve recently started to add up my calorie intake and it’s surprisingly mostly drinks. That I do have to work on.

The ProBars that I was sent were beyond delicious and so convenient to take with me for a snack or a meal while on-the-go. What I love most about them is the texture. It’s not like your typical granola bar or crumbly dry oat bar. The texture is sort of layer bar-ish. If that makes any sense. They are soft and chewy, bend easily, but don’t crumble at all. You can see the little nuts , oats, and other ingredients in them.  A biggie for me is that there are no added preservatives. 

I try out and review a lot of snack bars and I have to say, that I see these Probars as more of a meal wrapped up in a bar. Yesterday I ate the cherry pretzel bar for my lunch at work and it filled me up. Every one that I've tried are so tasty. Usually I can just take one bite of something, then put it aside and eat a little more later. With these, I took one bite of the S'mores bar and could not stop eating. It was absolutely delicious and I ate the whole bar right then. I have to stress that each and every one is so delicious. You can see with your eyes all the good stuff in there, the seeds and whatnot, and they taste so great, you'd never think of them as a healthy bar. 

This is not coming from an athlete of any sort, these keep me up and running. I work full time, have 2 kids and run this blog. My day is busy, but not as physically active as I’d like. I like to have a bar or two in my bag for a pick-me-up on my lunch break or when I actually get my butt up and moving to go for a walk / jog. I can’t get all technical and do not judge the ingredients. I’m taking them at surface value and know that they are a lot healthier than  most of the other bars that I’ve had recently.
Overall, my opinion is that these taste fantastic, I love the texture and I will want more! The only thing that does make me sad is that they aren’t readily available to me at any of my local stores. The closest one to me is 35 miles away, so I’ll have to order online. That will possibly delay my ordering more but they are so delicious, it will happen eventually. I am now in love with ProBar.
