Over the last few months, I’ve become really fond of Balance Bars as a meal replacement option. The new Balance Bar mini size lets you enjoy Balance Bars as a healthy 100 calorie snack.
They have the same 40-30-30 nutrition formula as the regular Balance Bars, but a smaller size to make them perfect for between meal snacks. (Each mini Balance Bar is about half the size of a full sized Balance Bar.)
Balance Bar minis are sold in a 10 count package. There are five cookie dough bars and five double chocolate brownie bars in each box. This is a great flavor combo for the chocolate lover looking for a healthier candy bar alternative, although I really wish they’d add the chocolate mint cookie crunch into the package for the perfect trio.
The mini Balance Bars were an instant hit at my house. My son loves them as a quick snack or a special treat in his school lunchbox, especially since the cookie dough is his favorite flavor. I like to keep one in my purse for when I need something healthy to eat on the go.
If you’re having trouble finding Balance Bars at the stores in your area, try looking near the vitamins and diet supplements. I’ve also seen them in the “health food” section of a few supermarkets in my area.
Have you tried the Balance Bar minis yet? If so, what did you think?
