PROBAR – Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip

I have already posted Reviews for several other flavors of PROBARS, previously. You can do a Search on my Blog-Page to find and read these.

However, if you have not yet already, you can read more about PROBAR here.

Today, I am posting a Review for the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip PROBAR.

* * * * * * *

My Reviews & Ratings -  5.0 out of 5 - I think I have already mentioned this before, but peanut butter and chocolate are my two favorite “sinful” pleasures…food-wise. They are both my “soft-spots” when it comes to eating. I’ve already shared…I believe…that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are my favorite “sinful” candy bars, as well. So, it would make perfect sense why I’d LOVE this particular PROBAR…since it mixes these two delectable ingredients. Eating this PROBAR is like eating a candy bar, only you know it’s organic, raw, made of completely real all-natural foods and ingredients…and therefore nutritiously better. Whole peanuts and almonds and a load of other seeds and nuts round out the main flavors that give it the solid “nutty” taste. Also, there’s lots of peanut butter holding the whole bar together, so be careful about PB sticking to the roof of your mouth! Although, throughout the bar, with every single bite, I experienced a clusters of chocolate chips that make the whole bar so darn good! I love them!

Nutritionally, as for these PROBARS, I take each of them at surface value and know that they rank on the “high” end of the spectrum as being as healthy, in terms of their raw ingredients, organic nature and health aspects, along with other bars which I’ve ranked in that particular area of my reviews.
The high-calorie count of these bars with around 370-400 calories it definitely makes a nice meal replacement which is one of PROBAR’s main purposes and designs of their bars. But for me, due to it’s concentration, I was only able to eat half the bar in one sitting. Yet, I typically finish the second half later that same day or early the next morning, because I can’t resist the temptation to gobble it up after tasting the first part of it! The only “con” I have is that this bar is pretty high in fat, at a whopping 23 grams. However, a “pro” is that the bar is pretty decent in fiber, with 6 grams, and also solid with protein, with 12 grams.
PROBARS are made from whole, certified organic, 70 % raw foods, and 100% vegan, PROBAR is a natural alternative to other nutrition bars which contain unrecognizable ingredients. They’re blended not baked and work as a meal replacement since there are 15 whole foods.

Nutrition Info: 1 bar = 393 calories, 18 g fat, 41 g carbs, 6 g fiber, 12 g protein.

I am not a pro-athlete of any sort, but these keep me energized and going.  However, I work full time, am active/exercise each day and run this Blog. Inside my purse, I have a variety of different protein, nutrition, energy, and food bars from a range of company. Many bars are the many brands I’ve posted reviews for. I like to have a variety of flavors and kinds, so that I can satisfy intuitively my taste-buds, nutrient needs and cravings for those moments. As well, I also often will eat 1/4 – 3/4 of a bar during lunch either as part of my lunch or as a “dessert” while I’m at work. Additionally, after I work-out, it’s quite common for me to make a smoothie or eat one of these protein/energy/meal/food/nutrition bars. In my Blog-Posts, I can’t get all “technical” on adjectives for my descriptions or in chemicals or mathematics for nutrition and do not “judge” the ingredients. I simply just provide my opinions about how I think they tasted and about what I like/don’t like as far as each products nutrition stats.

PROBARS also work well to throw in your desk drawer at work for those busy workdays when you can’t get away for lunch-out, have a short lunch-break, forgot to pack your lunch or just want something a little more “condensed” than a whole meal. Personally, when I eventually begin to purchase these (I’m still eating on the MANY samples that PROBAR shipped to me to review) I think I will prefer to buy them as singles so as to select an assortment of flavors that have come to be my favorites. But you can buy the same flavors on Amazon.com or directly from Probar.

Overall, this PROBAR has a super nutrition profile and it’s raw food ingredient list makes it great as a breakfast replacement, post-workout re-fueling choice or on-the-go snack. It can   in each bar to curb your hunger for hours!
