So, how many of my readers have heard about Balance Bar?

Balance Bar is an Energy Bar with a special formula for optimal energy. It's called the 40-30-30 nutrition principal.

Every Balance Bar is made up of 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 30% dietary fat. This nutrition method is scientifically proven to keep blood sugar levels balanced; so you can really feel good about eating this Energy Bar.

I have tried each bar for myself, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed each of the flavors Balance Bar sent me to try. If I had to pick a favorite bar, however, that would be quite simple:

I'm obsessed with the Balance Bar double chocolate brownie!

If I didn't know any better, I would have thought I picked this chocolate-bar-of-goodness straight from a brownie pan! Add to that the fact that it's an Energy Bar made specifically to keep your blood sugar levels balanced and you've got yourself a little piece of perfection!

A close second in my book would be the sweet and salty chocolate almond bar. 

Not only does it have the perfect 40/30/30 ratio I've been talking about, it's also got the perfect salty to sweet ratio, too! I can also say the energy these bars provide was noticeable. I had the sweet and salty chocolate almond Balance Bar for breakfast one day last week and I felt great all morning!

Balance Bar also nails that "sweet to salty" ratio with their peanut butter Balance Bar. There is a layer of peanut butter on the bottom of this bar, tasty enough to please even the snobbiest of peanut butter snobs.

Hands down, the peanut butter Balance Bar is amazing. I also took this bar for breakfast one morning last week. Not only did I notice more energy, but I was full all morning long!

The final flavor I tried from Balance Bar was their blueberry acai bar. If you are a fan of fruity Energy Bars, I think you'll also love this one! 

I, myself, am not a big fan on the fruity flavor energy bars. I took the blueberry acai Balance Bar in to work as a snack. I was more than pleased with how full it left me feeling and the added energy. The taste, however, wasn't quite for me. Although, my husband sent me a text that same day and said this flavor was his favorite one! He couldn't stop talking about how much he "loved the blueberry one"!

I really enjoyed trying each different Balance Bar! I had never experienced getting energy from a nutrition bar before, but Balance Bar's 40/30/30 formula definitely does the trick.
