Unfortunately it’s not socially acceptable to wear Nike Pro shorts, yoga pants or frat tanks to work. The struggles of a college student with an office job . . .

Anyhoo, I’m excited to share some new products with you today. They basically GIVE you an excuse to eat healthy because they’re so darn delicious.

I received a box of Vega’s new bars to try through the Fit Approach Sweat Pink ambassador program Friday. I received two flavors of the company’s four types of bars. It took all the willpower in me not to take a bite of each one as soon as I opened the box.

I picked the box up on my way back from the gym and decided to try the Chocolate Coconut Vega Sport Recovery Bar. OMG. It was dessert before lunch.

I couldn’t resist munching on another bar immediately after a bike ride and chest and biceps day at the gym Saturday. This time I tried the Chocolate Cherry Almond Vega One All-In-One Meal Bar.

This bar has been my favorite so far. It was like a granola bar married a candy bar, and they decided to wrap themselves in fudge.

I also tried the Dark Chocolate Mixed Nuts with Sea Salt Snack Bar late Saturday night when I was too lazy to get up off the couch and make a snack. I didn’t want to pause Mad Men! The bar was pretty good but not as tasty as the other bars.

My roommate also tried the Apple Cherry Vega Sport Energy Bar and said it tasted like a LARABAR. Needless to say, I’m stoked to try one at some point this week.

I highly recommend buying any of these bars if you’re looking for snacks that aren’t made with crazy artificial ingredients. Each bar is also gluten-free and plant-based.

Use the store locator tool on the Vega site to see where you can get your hands on these candy nutrition bars. 🙂

Note: All opinions are my own. Vega sent the bars to me to review, but I was not compensated monetarily for reviewing the products.

Questions:

  1. Have you tried the new Vega bars?
  2. What do you look for in a healthy snack bar?
