I received the Coco-nut with Peanut Butter bar flavor and for some reason I thought there was going to be peanuts in it, I was happily surprised that it's just the peanut butter and coconut, think of an Almond Joy, without the almond and instead of chocolate there was peanut butter, that's about how it tasted.
The Skinny Girl bars come in 4 different flavors:
- Banana Oatmeal Dark Chocolate On the Go Bars
- Coco-Nut with Peanut Butter On the Go Bars
- Dark Chocolate Multi-Grain Pretzel On the Go Bars
- Greek Yogurt Blueberry Crisp On the Go Bars
The negative part is that these babies have a whopping 22g of carbs, 180 calories, and have 10g of fat. Compared to a Sunbelt chocolate chip granola bar (21g of carbs, 140 calories, 5g of fat, 2g of protein) that's an increase in everything, except the protein and the vitamins.
Another negative aspect of these bars is that they sell for $12.99 a 5 pack on their website! I can buy a 10 pack of Sunbelt granola bars, that actually seem healthier for $2.50 a box.
So, while I was impressed with the taste and the name, I wouldn't really recommend these to anyone because it's an over priced not so healthy bar, you'd be better off buying a box of Granola Bars you like and a jar of Vitamins.
