At NuGo, they are all about the chocolate: REAL dark chocolate. Sourcing only the best, natural cocoa solids and combining them with creamy cocoa butter is how they make every bite full of decadent flavor. Unlike other companies, they don’t
cut costs by mixing their cocoa solids with vegetable fats [like palm kernel oil] to make imitation chocolate without the taste, texture or health benefits of REAL chocolate.
With numerous lines of products to choose from, I reviewed the NuGo Slim® bars:
If you want your protein and fiber without all the sugars and artificial sweeteners found in other diet products, NuGo Slim® is the protein bar for you! Low in sugar and net carbs, high in protein and fiber, and free of artificial ingredients, NuGo Slim® is a low glycemic snack that’s perfect for people monitoring their blood sugar or looking to maintain a healthy weight.
All 7 REAL Dark Chocolate flavors are Certified Gluten-free and 4 flavors are Vegan, including: Crunchy Peanut Butter, Toasted Coconut, Chocolate Mint and Espresso.
At NuGo, they make real, nutrient-dense foods that they too are proud to bring home to their families. To achieve that end, they only source ingredients from folks they trust: meaning all their suppliers must pass NuGo’s strict quality examinations before they consider them. NuGo is proud to be certified non-GMO, Vegan, Kosher, and Gluten-free with facility standards second to none.
With only 2-3g of sugar, each flavorful NuGo Slim® bar is a more guilt-free alternative to other dark chocolate treats. With 16–18g of protein in every bar, these high protein bars also give you sustained energy. Furthermore, NuGo Slim® bars are made without maltitol, a sugar alcohol that can cause bloating and gastric discomfort – so you can eat and feel your best! NuGo Slim® bars also contain 6-7g of fiber and only 5-6 net carbs, with a tested [very low] glycemic index of 24-29.
*NuGo Slim does contain soy and nut ingredients, so if you or your children have an intolerance to these ingredients, please steer clear. Some of their flavors also contain dairy ingredients, so again, if you are lactose intolerant these are best to be avoided.
Over a decade ago, NuGo Nutrition introduced the world to the idea that great taste and great nutrition don’t have to be mutually exclusive. With a focus on creating nutrition bars with luscious taste, wholesome nutrition, and quality ingredients, NuGo established a reputation for making superior snacks. Since those early days, their core values haven’t wavered – but their ambition has grown. What began as a vision to create great-tasting, nutritious snacks has evolved into a mission to pioneer unique, delectable nutrition bars for many lifestyles.
NuGo’s company culture is built on the core ideals and family values that they (as humans) live by. They are truly proud of the product they deliver, and the people who make it possible. This passion extends from their production-line employees to those performing in-store demos. If you are a consumer of NuGo bars, you are also part of their family.
WHERE TO BUY:
I’mall about chocolate these days. Give it to me for breakfast, as a snack, for dessert… it doesn’t matter – I’ll eat it whenever! But it has to be good chocolate. The real stuff. And the product has to be good for me too. None of this sugar-laden, weird oil-filled wannabe chocolate. Only the real stuff. And now with NuGo, I’ve got just that!
Coated in REAL dark chocolate, and free of anything artificial, NuGo Slim® bars are a great guilt-free alternative to other dark chocolate treats – for both you and your kiddos! With a light and airy crunch, yet still packed with taste and nutrition, you’ll know you’re doing something good for yourself when you grab one of these bars. And since the bars aren’t all that sweet, you won’t feel overwhelmed by their sugary punch like most other chocolate bars out there. In fact, I wouldn’t compare them to other dessert-type bars at all, but rather a way to fulfill your cravings and keep you satisfied, sans the guilt or sugar-crash!
I also love that NuGo Slim® offers several vegan flavors, with the Crunchy Peanut Butter and Toasted Coconut being my favorites – because who doesn’t love peanuts + chocolate or chocolate layered with toasted coconut flakes?! Even the smell of the bars when you open the package is of rich dark chocolatey goodness, and the smooth feel of chocolate when it hits your tongue makes it impossible to keep a smile off your face.
Are you looking for a way to get in more protein and fiber but still want to curb that chocolate craving? Then you’ve got to try NuGo Slim®! Because it’s those small steps that make healthy living a lifestyle – so why not take one today?!
