"Disclaimer: I received a variety pack of NuGo Egg White Protein Bars to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find and write race reviews!"
I am a snacker through and through, and occasionally eat protein bars after workouts - depending on the texture. The texture can make or break the bar, I have found. I prefer crunchy to chewy.
I received the following:
As soon as I got my sample pack, my son was trying to steal my bars. He promptly ate 2 blueberry and a maple pecan, and I was like “whoa, slow down! Momma still needs to try these”!!! Overall I am not a fruity flavor loving person, so this particular flavor was not my favorite, but it was my son’s favorite.
Blueberry ingredients: Dates, Egg Whites, Cashews, Blueberries, Almonds, Sea Salt, Natural Flavors.
160 cal, 5g fat, 22 g carbs, 12 g protein
Peanut Butter ingredients: Dates, Egg Whites, Peanuts, Cashews, Almonds, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt.
200 cal, 8 g fat, 19 g carbs, 14 g protein
I had this one after my body pump class. Definitely chewy but a good peanut butter flavor too. This was the first flavor I tried. The texture definitely takes a little time to get used to. Chewier than some bars.
Dark Chocolate ingredients: Dates, Egg Whites, Cashews, Almonds, Cocoa, Cane Sugar, Sea Salt, Natural Flavors.
190 cal , 8 g fat, 22 g carbs, 13 g protein
I had the dark chocolate flavor on my way to packet pickup mid afternoon for my 50k (yikes!). It took the edge off of my hunger temporarily and eased my nerves just a teeny bit.
Maple Pecan ingredients: Dates, Egg Whites, Cashews, Pecans, Almonds, Sea Salt, Natural Maple Flavor.
200 cal, 8 g fat, 19 g carbs, 14 protein
I saved the best for last. Maple pecan was a pleasant surprise, it did feel like a sweet breakfast treat, full of maple flavors. It blows my mind how they can make these breakfast flavors pop!!!
I have been following (sort of ) a keto friendly diet for the last 6 months where I’m really trying to up my protein and limit my carbs. The one bummer about these NuGo egg white protein bars is that they have a pretty high carb content, compared to the protein.
I loved, loved, loved, the NuGo dark bars and was hoping to love these equally as much. These deliver more protein, which is great, but I do prefer the flavor and texture of the regular dark chocolate bars way better. My son is a true fan of these egg white protein bars though! With school starting in just over a week (yikes), I need to stock up.
