Sometimes a product name can be intriguing. That was the case with BumbleBar products and it's why I picked up a couple of these at Fresh Thyme for reviews. I've already looked at one and was decidedly unimpressed, but since I bought two, I was on the hook for another review and that's why we are here today to take a look at this BumbleBar Chocolate Crisp Organic Energy Bar that I grabbed for $1.89 This one is organic, gluten free and vegan friendly and clocks in at 1.4 ounces. Within that is 190 calories and five grams of protein.

I've been shying away from Skinny Cow product reviews because their flavors have gone stale and because their products are just too expensive to buy on a regular basis. On a recent trip to Kroger, not only was I met with a sale but I was also met with some new flavors of products in their low fat ice cream bar line. One of those products was this box of five Skinny Cow Triple Chocolate Ripple Low Fat Ice Cream Bars that I was able to pick up for $2.99 on sale, which is a pretty solid price for Skinny Cow products. Typically, they run $4-5. Anyway, each bar in the box is 2.65 fluid ounces and comes in at 170 calories per bar.

NuGo has had nearly a one year rest in reviews on this blog. so it's been a while. Mostly that's been because I haven't been able to find any other flavors in my usual haunts. Some time back, I took a voyage to Fresh Thyme and picked up a lot of different bars for reviews and this was one of those bars. Finally, I'm getting around to taking a taste of this NuGo Slim Brownie Crunch Bar that I was able to pick up for $1.89. The bar itself is gluten free and also clocks in at 1.59 ounces with 190 calories and sixteen grams of protein.

This blog is often about the continuing education of the Crazy Food Dude. Today's review is one of those educational moments because when I saw the name of this product, I had NO CLUE what the heck it could mean. So, a simple Google search provided me a little background on this Raw Revolution Spirulina Dream Organic Live Food Bar that will add to my smallish Raw Revolution review series. What I learned is that spirulina is a dietary supplement that can come in many forms. In the case of this bar, it comes in powder form and adds protein and other nutrients. The bar itself is also gluten free, kosher, organic (obviously) and vegan. It clocks in at 1.8 ounces and 230 calories with seven grams of protein.

I recently when to a Chicago Cubs game in JUNE where it was fifty degrees in the middle of the day. Needless to say, I was not happy. So, anytime I find a killer sale that helps remind me of one of summer's favorite treats, I'm pretty inclined to buy it since it'll remind me of the summer that I HOPE will actually happen. With that, I saw another Edy's custard product (they're new) on sale at Kroger for $2.49. I had a $1.00 off coupon, so this was basically free! Anyway, the container of this Edy's (Dreyer's) Mint Cookies 'N Cream Frozen Custard was one quart (32 ounces) and each quart had eight half-cup size servings that clocked in at 210 calories per serving.

Anyone that reads this blog even semi-regularly has probably figured out that I really like dessert. I probably like it a bit too much actually. So, when I see a normal food product that inspired by dessert, I get kind of excited. I get especially excited if it's a somewhat healthy food product that is masquerading as dessert. Yep, simple pleasures for a simple man, I guess. Anyway, adding to my Muller review collection, I picked up this container of Muller Dessert Inspired Strawberry Cheesecake Yogurt on sale at Kroger for $1.00. It's 5.3 ounces and packs in 200 calories and seven grams of protein.

In my last Larabar review, I mentioned how delighted I was to see their products make a return to the blog after nearly a year's absence. Today is the second part of the two bars that I picked up in that shopping trip at Kroger as I picked up this Larabar Coconut Pineapple Cake Bar for $1.00. The bar itself comes in at 1.6 ounces and has 190 calories with a tiny two grams of protein. If you are a big fan of health or at least attempts at health, this bar is also dairy free, gluten free, soy free and vegan.
