So a few days ago the dude from this company asked me if I would be interested in sampling a new product they developed: Attune - All Natural Probiotic Wellness Bars. I said sure because heck free is good and who knows it could be yummy.
I sampled the Granola Probiotic Wellness Bars (10 g. sugar/170 calories)
Strawberry Bliss (really good)
Wild Berry (my favorite)
Lemon Creme (like Lemon Curd, yum)
Mango Peach (strong mango flavor, not much peach)
Verdict: All of them rocked! They have a yogurt coating on the base of the bar (kind of like a Luna Bar if you've had those) I'd definitely buy all of these as a treat (healthy cookie replacement). I'd probably eat about 1/2 a bar in a sitting. It's sweetened with evaporated cane juice and organic molasses (all hippy speak for sugar) so proceed with caution those that dump but I had no problems and really liked them.
I also tried the Chocolate Probiotic Wellness Bars (8 g of sugar chocolate bar/100 calories)
Chocolate Crisp (like a Dark Chocolate Nestle's Crunch but with less crispies)
Dark Chocolate (plain Dark Chocolate not much to say)
Mint Chocolate (very Andes-ish, loved it)
Blueberry Vanilla (like a Vanilla Blueberry Bark, loved it)
Verdict: I enjoyed 2 out of 4 but I'm not a Dark Chocolate fan and 3 out of 4 are Dark Chocolate. If you are you will love them. You know if you are seriously jonesing for chocolate it's a heck of a lot better to grab one of these then a candy bar.
Both types of bars have 5 times the live active cultures in yogurt this apparently is the latest rage I'm seeing live active cultures (good bacteria helpers - aids in digestion) in loads of new products. You actually keep them in the fridge till you are ready to eat them so the live cultures stay alive I guess. For stores that carry them in your area. Here is their product locator.
