Balance Bar Balance Gold Bars
My name is Steve Sidorski and I am reviewing the Rocky Road flavour of the Balance Gold high-protein nutrition energy bar which is distributed by Balance Bar Company, East Hanover, NJ 07936 USA. The bar I am reviewing has a best before date and is really produced in Canada.
My experience is that these bars taste just as good as the Chocolate flavour of the much more commonly sold Vector bars which you can find in almost any convenience store. However, ordering in bulk from http://www.bodybuildingpro.com will save you a lot of time and money.
Even though this bar tastes above average, I am a little concerned with the 4g of saturated fat, 5mg of cholesterol, and 14g of sugar. However, this is the norm for good-tasting nutrition bars.
These larger bars pack 14-15 grams of protein and 23 essential vitamins and minerals in a 1.76 oz or 50 gram bar. They are the complete nutrition energy bar. Please note these bars are twice the size of the smaller 25 gram sample size Balance Bar. Also, these Energy Bars have 40-30-30 Nutrition -- 40% of Calories from Carbohydrates 30% each from Protein & Dietary Fat.
These bars work well with Omega Blast, GlutaLean, Nitric Blast and / or Glutamine Peptides.
Balance Bar Company has developed by far one of the best tasting protein supplemental bars on the market today. This is a good protein energy bar for before and / or after workouts, or for any other sporting event / cardio that you may be involved in.
My suggested use is to take 1-2 bars per day as a meal replacement or between meals as a snack. Be sure to use as recommended by a physician or licensed nutritionist. Keep in a cool, dry place.
I found it amusing when it stated right on the bar that they are made from "natural flavour with other natural flavour". The bar should have said something like "made with natural flavours".
From the official website, www.balance.com the Balance Gold bars, including the one I am reviewing, have the following key benefits: provides lasting energy, 13-15 grams of protein, 100% daily value for vitamins C and E, antioxidants essential for good health, B vitamins to release energy from food, no artificial flavours or sweeteners and it obviously satisfies hunger.
Interestingly enough, I could not find any information about the Rocky Road flavour that is featured for this review so it must be a recent addition to the Balance Gold family of bars.
They seem like a reputable and fair company according to me because they provide the following mission statement: "Make millions of people happy and healthy by providing them with the world's best-tasting, most satisfying nutritional products of the highest quality."
To order at one of the most honest sites, go to http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/bal/gold.html where you have the choice of Caramel Nut Blast, Chocolate Peanut Butter or Rocky Road. The price quoted there is $16.95 for a box of fifteen. Be aware of other websites like www.ebay.com that attempt to sell expired bars although if it does not bother you then you can get them cheap.
