Balance Bar Dark | Dark Chocolate Peanut Crunch

These gluten-free bars combine smooth dark chocolate with the nutritious crunch of fresh peanuts for a salty-sweet snack your taste buds will love. Balance Bar Dark Chocolate Peanut bars are certified Gluten Free, made with 100% Rainforest Alliance Cerfitied cocoa and also provide 40-30-30 balanced nutrition for lasting energy.


40-30-30 Nutrition for Lasting Energy

Balance Bars are designed to provide long-lasting, balanced energy, rather than a quick sugar rush followed by a crash. Their bars follow the 40-30-30 nutrition principle, which represents the caloric ratio your body needs to help maintain blood sugar levels already within a normal range and satisfy hunger:

40% of calories come from carbohydrates - blended with Balance Bar's unique protein blend and dietary fat to help promote a slow glycemic response and sustain your energy levels.

30% of calories come from protein – including quality sources such as whey, milk and soy protein for muscle recovery.

30% of calories come from dietary fat - a concentrated source of energy.

Flavor Name: Peanut Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Compared to other Balance bars such as "Almond Brownie" Balance Bar Complete Nutritional Food Bar, Almond Brownie, 1.76-Ounce Bars (Pack of 15) , "Gold Carmel Nut Blast" Balance Bar Gold Caramel Nut Blast, 15 Count Bars , and "Yogurt Honey Peanut" Balance Bar, Yogurt Honey Peanut, 6 - 1.76 oz Bars per Box, this new Dark Chocolate Peanut is lighter and less dense (45 grams vs. 50 grams for the other bars), and has slightly fewer calories (180 vs. 200-210 for the other bars). The level of protein is slightly less (13 grams vs. 14-15) and the percent of fat is about the same. From a nutrition stand point, this is a typical Balance Bar that's about 10% smaller than the other bars. The good news is the taste is excellent. Highly recommended.

Flavor Name: Crunch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've tried a LOT of different nutrition bars in my day, and so many of them are just good for you but don't taste very nice. This dark chocolate crunch Balance bar is YUMMY!! The chocolate has a very rich flavor, tastes like real chocolate & not like synthetic flavoring, and it has a moist texture. More like a candy bar than a typical nutrition bar - so many of those taste very dry and grainy, but this Balance flavor is almost like a very chewy brownie!

Nutrition-wise, I usually look for under 200 calories (under 150 is better, but sometimes not filling), high protein, high fiber, and low sodium. This is very good on most counts. 13g of fiber is a very strong snack, and 190mg of sodium is quite low. Fiber is only 4g, but that's not too bad for a snack this size. 6g of fat means that this bar will actually keep you full for a few hours, unlike the very low-fat bars that just don't satiate. 12g of sugar is definitely a bit high, but I suppose that's probably why it tastes like dessert!

Of all the bars out there, it might not be absolute perfection nutritionally, but I think it strikes a good balance between good nutrition and yummy taste. You have to enjoy your food - even if you're trying to be extremely healthy, you won't stick to it unless it tastes good! This bar is one I will definitely buy again, whether I'm on a health kick or just want a treat. It works either way!

Flavor Name: Peanut Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Although these bars are labeled "Dark Chocolate", they are not too rich in taste. With the protein you get from the peanuts, and the flavor from dark chocolate, what can go wrong?

Seriously, I like these bars as a relatively healthy snack either between meals or a desperate replacement for one. They are good, without being too sweet. Being a dark chocolate fan, that addition just makes them better. Also, the peanuts are not too salty either, so the balance of taste for these bars is just right.

Enjoy them without guilt!

Flavor Name: Coconut Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
With a brownie like texture and an **almost toasted** crunchy coconut flavor this Balance Bar was pleasantly suprising. The coconut flavor is very promanant so if you aren't crazy about that flavor I'd pass on this one. I'm pretty picky about after tastes and textures and I think this one is great. While I don't think I'll be buying these in bulk (only because I like more fiber and or protein) I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of these for a quick fix.

Flavor Name: Peanut
I used to love several different Balance Bar flavors. I stopped eating them for one reason or another, but recently had a chance to try one of the dark chocolate peanut ones. These newer flavors are actually quite good. I think by making it dark chocolate peanut instead of involving peanut butter, they were able to keep the protein levels up (13g/bar) without containing too much fat (only 1/3 of the calories are from fat).

Also because of the peanuts (instead of peanut butter), the sugar levels are lower than they might otherwise be. These have a hint of sweetness, but not a candylike level of sweetness. It's an appropriate level for an energy bar, I think. These are also low in sodium (relatively speaking - 180 mg/bar, or about 8% of what you should get in a day).

For those of you following a diet with a precise balance of protein, fat, and carbohydrates, these are designed for just such a diet (40 carbs, 30 protein, and 30 fat). They're gluten free (but watch out if you have other allergies; there are nuts, soy, and milk ingredients) and the cocoa beans used to make the chocolate are sustainably harvested.

Enough with the package information, though. What is it like to eat one of these? The dark chocolate flavor predominates. The texture is a little chewy and a little crunchy; these are not dense, although you sort of feel like you're eating something more substantial when you consume one of these. Even though they're mostly made of soy (and a few other things), they have a texture a bit like a crispy rice bar (but slightly denser/thicker). It's not like eating a solid block of chocolate.

At any rate, I liked this dark chocolate peanut butter bar a lot. It was a way to indulge myself a little bit but still take in some nutrition, as well. I don't normally consume energy bars, but if I decide to start doing so in earnest, these will definitely be on my grocery list.

Flavor Name: Crunch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm not going to go into the nutritional aspects of these bars. That's well laid out in the description and by other reviewers. My review is compiled as to the taste and texture of these bars. For after all, finding good nutritional snacks and supplements are easy these days. Finding ones that are good and that you look forward too are another matter. Unfortunately these Balance bars don't cut it with me. They are nutritionally much better for you than lets say a Snickers bar, but trust me, the two would never be confused. Even though I liked the chewy texture that seemed to make them last longer the taste just isn't there. It's not that they taste really that bad, just no discernible chocolate, pleasant taste at all. What flavor there is taste rather like vitamins, almost chemical like as other reviewers here have described. I've tasted much better in nutritional bars for sure. My recommendation is that if these bars contain the nutritional numbers you are looking for, I suggest looking around and comparing price and taste first. These not only don't taste good at all, but they're not cheap. There has to be something out there that is more pleasurable and still has the numbers you want to see... : )
