What Kinds Of Bars Do You Eat?

I live on low calorie protein bars, bars with high fiber, and energy bars on a daily basis.  I am working out and watching my food intake to get myself ready for Summer.  I have been testing out tons of different bars and flavors and noticed Bobo’s Oat Bars in my local grocery and thought I’d give them a shot too.  I contacted Bobo’s Oat Bars and they sent me a few samples of their product.  Each bar was wheat free, vegan, non GM0 and made with organic ingredients.

I received Maple Pecan (my favorite), Peanut Butter and the original flavored bar.  These bars taste great and are very filling but come packaged as a double serving.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t make myself cut something like this in half in order to eat it in two different sittings.  In order to control myself, I prefer to eat bars that only contain one serving in order to control the amount of calories I consume.  I will purchase these bars from my grocery, but will only eat them on the days that I workout.  I count Weight Watchers Points and each bar (2 servings) adds up to 8 points, which is way too many for me to use for a snack.

Here are the nutritional facts from the Maple Pecan Bar:  (Gluten Free)

  • Serving Size 1.5 oz
  • Servings Per Container 2
  • Calories 190
  • Calories From Fat 70
  • Total Fat 7
  • Saturated Fat 1.5 g
  • Trans Fat 0
  • Cholesterol 0
  • Sodium 20 mg
  • Total Carbohydrate 27 g
  • Dietary Fiber 3 g
  • Sugars 9 g
  • Protein 3g

For high calorie burning athletes these would be great, but for me, I need someone to hide the extra bars in the cabinet until I am ready to plan my food intake for the day so I can fit in the extra Weight Watchers Points needed for the double serving.
