NuGo Review...

We recently had the chance to sample 3 bars from NuGo.

About NuGo Bars:
"NuGo makes delicious and health snacks that meet everyone’s dietary needs. Our bars taste better than other nutritional foods because of our commitment to using the most wholesome ingredients and baking processes possible.
NuGo believes that pure, natural ingredients are both better for you and better tasting. From our very first bar to the latest, we’ve maintained a commitment to creating great snacks without taking shortcuts. Each of our bars is full of the protein and whole grains that every diet needs.
In response to our consumers’ diverse lifestyles, NuGo now has created bars to meet everybody’s interest: Family, Organic, Dark Chocolate, Organic, Raw, and Low Carb. In keeping with NuGo’s core principles, we don’t use hydrogenated oils, trans fats, or vegetable fat compounds in our bars. That means bars contain brown rice, soy, whole grains, and REAL dark chocolate. We finish the bars by baking all of these ingredients together, creating a texture that’s crisp and delicious.
For NuGo, part of making snacks that are healthy and delicious is educating our customers about chocolate. People are surprised to find that chocolate is a health food; Pure dark chocolate is good for your health, so it has a place in NuGo bars. Not ALL dark chocolate is healthy, though, because other companies often add vegetable oil to keep it from melting when shipped. NuGo doesn’t cut corners, so our chocolate is unadulterated. That’s also the secret to the superior taste of NuGo bars; we don’t add vegetable fat to our chocolate, so there’s no waxy taste or crumbly texture.
We now offer scrumptious options for everyone, with flavors that are kosher, low-glycemic, OU pareve, vegan, USDA certified organic, fruit & fiber, sugar-free, gluten, soy, & dairy free, and 100% natural.

What we thought: The NuGo bars we sampled were filling and tasty. Sometimes the makers of nutrition bars sacrifice taste for a healthier bar, but NuGo has figured out how to balance the two and their bars are pretty impressive. I love the variety NuGo provides for the whole family. They even have special bars for certain dietary restrictions, real dark chocolate for the chocolate lovers and organic flavors for those looking to eat more naturally.
