Sweet Monday + The Simply Bar Giveaway

Mondays just got a whole lot sweeter, y'all!  Today launches the next 3 MONTHS of Monday giveaways here at No Sugar Sweet Life!  I don't know about you, but I am sooooooooo excited about this!!  I always like winning free stuff... but I REALLY like giving away free (awesome) stuff.  And with so many giveaways, the odds you'll win one of them is fairly high!  So, every Monday I will review a new (awesome) product and announce a giveaway.  Then, every Friday I'll announce that week's winner.  Then come back the next Monday to do it all over again!  So let's get this sweet Monday party started!!

Today's Giveaway: The Simply Bar

I was introduced to The Simply Bar at the Blend Retreat, as fuel for our hike up the Flatirons

I was immediately drawn to them because of their low sugar content.  With 16g of protein, they only have 3g of sugar!  They recently sent me their top 4 flavors to taste/review: Lemon Coconut, Cinnamon Pecan, Peanut Butter Chocolate, and Caramel Peanut.

Here's a quick summary of their stats:

  • Protein: 16g
  • Calories: 150
  • Sugar Content: 3g
  • Fiber: 4g
  • Sodium: 140mg

They are gluten-free, vegan, and kosher! And they have recently been certified as a non-GMO pro bar.  They are made with soy crisps and a variety of natural ingredients, all easy on the stomach!  And as you can see from this picture, Babycakes was grabbing for them immediately!

Here's my brief review/take on each of the flavors (in the order of my preference):

  1. Lemon Coconut - Definitely my favorite!! It was super flavorful and light and refreshing. It was also moist, which may be a weird description for a granola bar, but when you read the next description you'll know what I mean).  The lemon and the coconut complemented each other perfectly.  HIGHLY recommended!  I'm ordering a full CASE soon!!
  2. Cinnamon Pecan - The flavor of this one was really good...BUT, it was a bit dry for my liking.  I ate this one out hiking and I was seriously wishing I had some milk! Oooooo, or some ice cream, ha!  So, this one was good, but not as great for an active snack.  More for a weekend treat with ice cream :)
  3. Peanut Butter Chocolate - This was a good mixture of both peanut butter and chocolate. Reminiscent of a Reese's, but not nearly as sweet.  This one felt moist enough to me. 
  4. Caramel Peanut - This one was my least favorite.  It wasn't very sweet but didn't have much other strong flavors to carry it.  Healthy, yes... but a bit boring, especially when you know there's Lemon Coconut awesomeness to be had!!

Nom, Nom!!  Babycakes LOVES granola bars, and this is finally one that I can feel GOOD about giving her!

Here's a cute little chart they made to show how their bars stack up against the competition:
