Review: Dannon Oikos Black Cherry Frozen Greek Yogurt


Sometimes a product comes out and doesn't excite me at all, so I never end up buying it.  What is funny is that something as simple as a coupon can all of a sudden excite me and get me to want to purchase something, especially when I can mix that coupon with a sale.  That's what leads me to another Dannon Oikos review as this time I'll be taking a look at a pint of their Dannon Oikos Black Cherry Frozen Greek Yogurt that I was able to pick up on sale at Kroger for $3.00 (before coupon).  This is the first time I've looked at one of their frozen yogurt products and each pint contains the typical four half-cup servings and each serving is a respectable 150 calories of six gram packed protein.

Review: Larabar uber Dark Chocolate Peanut Sweet and Salty Fruit & Nut Bar


After my last Larabar review, I learned something that I did not know before after a reader left a comment on my Facebook page.  Apparently semi-sweet chocolate is considered dark chocolate, so I guess that is how Larabar can call these bars dark chocolate bars.  I was confused by that previously, but not everything is all cleared up.  Once again, I've been educated by a loyal reader.  Thank you!  Anyway, my newly educated self is ready to dive into this review of this Larabar uber Dark Chocolate Peanut Sweet and Salty Fruit & Nut Bar with the knowledge that it truly is dark chocolate.  I picked up this bar on sale at Kroger for $1.00 and each bar is 1.42 ounces with 210 calories and six grams of protein.  It's also kosher and gluten free.

Review: thinkThin Chunky Chocolate Peanut Lean Protein & Fiber Bar


I've repeated several times on this blog that when a manufacturer is starting a new product line, the first flavor (or one of the first) flavors that they always choose to deploy is some variation of chocolate and peanut butter and I can't say that I blame them.  It's a safe choice.  It's popular, it's got a proven track record of being desirable, it's easy, etc.  So, when thinkThin was looking to roll out flavors for their new Lean Protein & Fiber Bars, it seemed like an obvious combination.  What is amusing is that the obvious combination is often boring, which is why I have reviewed some of the other flavors first before I got to taking a look at this thinkThin Chunky Chocolate Peanut Lean Protein & Fiber Bar that I was able to pick up on sale at Kroger for $1.00.  The bar itself is 1.41 ounces and has 150 calories (lean) and ten grams of protein.

Review: Boundless Nutrition Oatmega Blueberry Pomegranate Bar


It's been a while since I've taken a look at an Oatmega bar.  This one has just been laying around waiting for me to review and I've been putting off doing it because, quite frankly, the combination kind of scared me.  I love blueberries, but I'm not particularly fond of the pomegranate flavor in a lot of cases, so I've been taking my time getting to doing a review of this Boundless Nutrition Oatmega Blueberry Pomegranate Bar.  Alas, I couldn't put it off forever, so that leads me to take a look at this bar that I picked up at Marsh for $2.99.  Each bar is 1.8 ounces with 190 calories and fourteen grams of protein.  It's all natural, made of whey protein and is high in Omega 3, so it's got all those delightful characteristics going for it.

Review: South Beach Diet Fudgy Chocolate Mint Snack Bars


I typically stay away from South Beach Diet bars because they are so expensive, but every now and then, there's a coupon that comes through one of my coupon apps on my phone that makes it reasonable to purchase a box of these bars and do a review.  A $3.00 off coupon recently came through my Kroger app and that led me to pick up this box of six (one bonus bar!) South Beach Diet Fudgy Chocolate Mint Snack Bars at Kroger for $2.99 after coupon.  Each bar in this box is a somewhat small-sized 0.98 ounces and comes in with 100 calories and six grams of protein.

Review: Fruttare Black Cherry Ice Bars


I mentioned in my last Fruttare review that their media agency was kind enough to send me some free coupons to try out some of their new products.  Those coupons lead me to today's review as I'm going to take a look at this box of six Fruttare Black Cherry Ice Bars, which is also among their two new product offerings.  Each bar in this box is 2.4 fluid ounces and is a very economical 60 calories, so it's a "healthy" dessert treat if that is what you are looking for.

Review: Larabar uber Dark Chocolate Turtle Sweet and Salty Fruit & Nut Bar


I don't know about you, but I find Turtle ice cream sundaes fascinating.  The mix of pecans, hot caramel, hot fudge and vanilla ice cream mixed together is just an awesome flavor combination and given my choice of sundaes, I think I'd choose that one 95% of the time.  So, it was with great delight that I found another subject for another Larabar review (after a VERY LONG absence) that was apparently trying to model itself after that sundae according to the name.  With high hopes, I grabbed this Larabar uber Dark Chocolate Turtle Sweet and Salty Fruit & Nut Bar off the shelves of my local Kroger for $1.00.  Each bar is 1.42 ounces, 220 calories and has five grams of protein.  It's also gluten free and kosher, so there is that.
