I received a ZonePerfect Greek Yogurt Raspberry nutrition bar compliments of Influenster (email me if you want an invite to join, otherwise it’ll make you wait a few days to sign up!). To start with, I don’t usually eat nutrition bars for the taste, so that’s not a huge deciding factor for me. I eat them because they’re nutritious; they’re better for me than chips or something when I want a snack. This little bar has 195 calories and 12g of protein. Other vitamins and minerals were less than 10%, so I’m pegging them as insignificant in this bar. I guess the protein makes it a nutrition bar. It’s mostly made of soy, which I don’t have a problem with, but it also has other allergens: milk and wheat. I’m not allergic to anything, but I know this might be a turn-off for others. It had a lot of ingredients, in my opinion, for a simple nutrition bar, as I tend to gravitate toward the simpler ones. I don’t think the trade off was that great for including all these extra ingredients, either. The bar looks nice from the outside packaging. It smells nice when you open the package and bite into it. The taste is mediocre, a little gritty like a lot of soy/protein bars are, with a faint aftertaste. I would have liked a stronger raspberry flavor, or a stronger yogurt flavor in the coating. Overall, a regular old protein bar.
I’m not sure what I’ll put here yet.
