“I especially liked the raspberry flavor, which was sweet, but had a touch of bitterness – almost like a wine and chocolate pairing. The texture is neither crunchy nor chewy, but somewhere in between. The Brownie Crunch has a particularly fudgy element, which makes it decadent but still reasonable at 180 calories. Best of all, each bar contains 15g of protein and 9g of fiber, so it’ll tide your sweet tooth over for a while.”
"I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked them. This flavour, chocolate pretzel, was my favorite because it was salty and sweet!"
"f you want lots of yummy flavor & fuel that you can feel pretty good about eating, Nugo’s got it. These bars are chock full of organic ingredients. Talk about a GIANT leap up from your typical snack bar."
"I was really impressed with the taste. The texture was great with puffed rice thingys in it to add a little crunch."
"I tried the brownie crunch bar and I really enjoyed it. It had a unique taste but it was clear that real chocolate was used. The bar was dipped in real chocolate and it certainly has the taste of a crispy chocolate brownie."
"These bars are so easy to pack for work snacks, a quick meal fix, safe enough to share with your kids (no seriously, your kids WILL steal them so hide them!), and cost under $2 a bar. Since each bar has heart healthy protein, it is even a great way to refuel after a workout!"
"NuGO Organic bars are so decadent and delicious, I felt as if I was eating a candy bar! I forgot I was treating my body right while snacking!"
"I'm going to go into all the delicious details of all three flavors - but I want to open my flavor review with an overall statement of flavor-success. NuGo put forth a strong effort with their flavoring. Coming up with innovative flavors without sacrificing the integrity and natural composition of their product is a real challenge - but I think NuGo pulled it off with all 3 flavors that I tried."
"These are the BEST bars in the world."
“The nutritional profile of the bars is good, but what stands out the most is the taste. Each of the four flavors, dark chocolate, cookies and cream, caramel cluster and peanut cluster tasted like candy bars.”
"I recently discovered Go Organic Dark Chocolate NuGo bars that are delicious and a quite a bit more nutritious than a Crunch Bar or KitKat"
"This week, I tried the spicy chocolate with chili peppers, which might be my new favorite NuGo bar. I loved its spicy kick, and the slight hint of cinnamon."
"These NuGo Bars are lower in sugar, rice / whey based and deliciously easy to pack along."
"The Coconut was definitely my favorite; it almost tasted like an Almond Joy candy bar, but with a crunch (and so much healthier)."
"I love the combination of chocolate and coconut, so I knew this bar would be a hit with me. I was not disappointed! There is a perfect balance of chocolate and coconut throughout this bar."
“I just had my first NuGO FREE snack bar recently — one of the Dark Chocolate Crunch bars — and I was very impressed. Tasty, crunchy (as promised), chewy, and packed with 9 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. I wasn’t hungry again for hours. These earned a place on my list.”
"These are not ordinary protein bars. The quality can't even compare. NuGo Nutrition uses REAL chocolate and that is obvious in every bite you take."
"There are a whole bunch of different style NuGo bars, some are Organic, some are Lactose Free, some contain different sources of protein, but hte one thing they all have in common is quality of ingredients. Non-GMO, no Maltitol, no artificial anything."
"I also got the chance to try the Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip NuGo Nutrition Bar, and found it nicely sweet for an afternoon treat, with a rustic crispy texture and TONS of chocolate. There was a not too thick, but generous chocolate coating and those nearly full-sized chocolate chips throughout. If you adore real semi-sweet dark chocolate than this bar is for you."
"Plain and simple: NuGo Nutrition bars are healthy and delicious."
"The whole thing was covered in dark chocolate which was really nice, wasn't too sweet. The bar itself was kind of crunchy, and the Raspberry Flavor was actually really good. The flavor wasn't too overwhelming -- the chocolate and the raspberry went really together."
"Our very favorite is the Slim line, high in protein and low in sugar. And they even have 2 vegan flavors! Love them."
"I really love how these bars are chocolately, but they are not overly sweet. Simply perfect!"
“I have found some great tasting dark chocolate protein snacks called NuGO Slim. There are lots of protein bars out there but they don’t all taste good and have funny after taste.”
"My personal favorite are the dark chocolate chocolate chip which have 10g of protein are non-GMO, gluten free and vegan, and oh the best part, you would never know you were eating a protein bar!"
"My favorite flavor is the Chocolate Pretzel -- yum, yum, yum -- salty and chocolatey, which I love!"
"They have a crunchy texture inside, and are coated with chocolate (NOT chocolatey stuff, it's the real dark chocolate deal!) They also have a fantastic flavor! No part of the bar is overpowering and there isn't any weird aftertaste that you get with some bars. I really didn't find any part of the bar that I didn't like"
"I would recommend these bars to athletes, other Moms, and anyone who is interested in make healthier eating choices in their day to day live."
"Finding anything healthy that's gluten free and packed with good protein is hard to find. Add finding one that actually tastes great and it's close to impossible...until now!!"
"These bars are also made with REAL dark chocolate and are the only protein bars out there to do so. Both bars I tried were entirely coated in rich and creamy chocolate, it was so freaking good."
"OMG. I can't put words into this bar. It tasted like a snickers bar to me except better"
"The bars have 16-17 grams of protein, are vegan, gluten-free, have only 3 g sugar and 7 grams of fiber. These bars are pretty tasty."
"Their products are very very yummy too."
"They taste darn good without any sickly sweetness on the tongue, or richness that hangs out in your stomach. I enjoy the texture of the NuGo bars; they hold together nicely yet are easy to eat."
"Holy moly guacamole. Talk about yummy! This bar was fantastic."
“Covered in real dark chocolate, you might wonder how this bar can be good for you, but this USDA certified organic bar is rich in antioxidants and packed with all natural ingredients, soy protein, vitamins and minerals. NuGO Organic bars are sweetened with agave syrup, are vegan and Kosher, and are very satisfying.”
"This bar is so delicious and satisfying. It tastes like a healthier dark chocolate and peanut butter candy bar"
"I'm pretty sure I've found the best tasting protein bars. NuGo brand bars are great."
"The NuGo Stronger Caramel Pretzel Bar was the clear winner of the High Protein bar taste test. If you like the salty caramel taste with Twix bar-like caramel and the extra crunch of pretzels then this is the bar for you."
"The Brownie Crunch will satisfy a chocolate craving and is gluten free"
"The REAL Dark Chocolate is thick, chewy and rich. Peanut Cluster is practically like eating a Snickers. And Caramel Pretzel may be my hands-down favorite. Salty and sweet with the crunch of pretzels and the pull of caramel, it’s kind of my protein bar heaven."
"The important take away for me from their description is that it is 1) gluten-free, 2) non-GMO, and 3) has 25g of protein. That, my friends, is a lot of protein."
"These bars are crispy, protein packed (10 grams of protein per bar!), real dark chocolate (that melts so deliciously in your mouth!) dipped, nutrition bars, that taste more like a dessert than a recovery supplement. Eating these after a workout is the best treat ever!"
"Wow! These high protein bars are great tasting – no funny “mouthfeel” or aftertaste that some high protein bars have."
"This bar made my list for two reasons: it’s low sugar and it tasted great. "
"This is the one bar I can get my kids to regularly eat."
"These yummy bars are a little more than half the size of the Stronger bars so they’re a good snack or pick-me-up as you’re heading up that mountain path. With 15-17g protein, only 2-3g sugar, 7g fiber, and 170-190 calories, you get a nice balance to make you feel full, satisfy your sweet tooth, but not overload on the calories."
"The only bar I’ve ever known to have only 2-3 grams of sugar and zero artificial sweeteners (including zero bloat-inducing sugar alcohols!)."
“Insanely delicious!! It’s a very sweet bar, in a good way. Not overly sweet, not artificially sweet. More like, real caramel sweet. It’s so good! The best part is that you get real textures, one of which is pretzel. This is probably the best tasting protein bar I’ve ever had!”
“The Caramel Pretzel is my favorite…the perfect combination of sweet and salty. What a perfect way to refuel after a tough workout!
“Chocolate Pretzel w/ sea salt: Favorite!! First one I tried, and I completely fell in love. The flavor is right on & you can literally see specs of sea salt throughout the whole bar.”
"So how do the NuGo Dark bars taste? I really like them! They are not too sweet because they are made with real dark cacao which is not super sweet like milk chocolate. They are crunchy and remind me of granola bars/traditional energy bar"
"We order these by the case. They're vegan and gluten-free and incredibly delicious."
“Mint Chocolate Chip: Ok, hands down, this was my absolute favorite!! It was SO good!! It was crunchy & crisp with sweetness from the chocolate & the hint of mint after. Think of a Thin Mint Cookie – yummy!!! If you’re a mint & chocolate lover, check this one out!! I really, really, want more of this flavor!
“Chocolate Pretzel has got to be THE BEST gluten free, dairy free bar on the market!!! If you have allergies (or even if you don’t) then find this bar and try it out!!!”
“Let’s start with my very favorite, the Mocha Chocolate. If you love the taste of chocolate and coffee mixed together, then this will be your favorite also!”
“The bars we tried were really good. Even though we aren’t huge fans of dark chocolate, the rich flavor was hard to resist.”
“Remember Thin Mint Cookies? You know…those addictive little cookies that the Girl Scouts tempt you with every year? Well, they were my favorite back when I could eat them. And I’ve been without them for two years now. Two long years. Well, I can honestly say that the NuGo Dark Mint Chocolate Chip Bar reminds me of what a Thin Mint Cookie tasted like.”
“I would definitely recommend these bars, and now have been noticing them in some other fun places like my neighborhood’s local coffee shop. What a great find!”
“I’ve found my favorite NuGo… I bring Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Trail Mix with me everywhere. I have a box in my cart, a few in my gym bag, at the office, my brother’s house, stuffed in jacket pockets and camel back for outdoor adventures.”
“Great chocolate taste with rice crispy like pieces mixed in for the oh so crispy crunch! It hit the taste of a brownie right on, I can’t believe how good it tasted! It was so much better than a brownie though! Stopped my sweet craving dead in it’s tracks, really did the trick and tasted amazing.”
“I tried the Mint Chocolate Chip — think Girl Scout cookie! — and Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt — it’s a gluten-free pretzel!!”
“They definitely warded off my hunger, keeping me full until lunch time! Although they tasted like dessert, there’s nothing unhealthy about these bars.”
“Our favorite thing about NuGO is they are the only company to make REAL Dark Chocolate coated protein bars for many lifestyles: Kosher, gluten-free, organic, vegan, non-dairy, low sugar, high fiber, and more. We didn’t realize that there are no FDA standards for dark chocolate, causing consumers to be deceived by misleading labels on chocolate protein bars.”
“Overall I was pleasantly surprised to have enjoyed it so much"
“They definitely warded off my hunger, keeping me full until lunch time! Although they tasted like dessert, there’s nothing unhealthy about these bars.”
“The combination of the sweet and crunchy filling, the dark decadent chocolate and the amazing sea salt is something I will never get sick of.”
“My personal favorite flavor is the chocolate pretzel with sea salt. So freaking good.”
“I liked the crunchy bits in the bars and thought the dark chocolate paired excellently with the espresso in the Espresso bar. These don’t taste artificial at all, they’re a real treat!“
“In addition to being a serious dark chocoholic, I also love espresso and peanut butter (the two I got to try) so you can only imagine my happiness. The conclusion? For dark chocolate lovers who also care about healthy eating, NuGO bars are the way to go.”
“What makes NuGo Nutrition stand out from the rest? Real chocolate.”
NuGo for it!
“Each Raspberry Truffle Bar has only 180 calories and 17g of Protein. There is 7g of Fiber and only 2g of Sugar! NICE and the Raspberry taste is great! It is ther perfect afternoon snack for me within my Snack Budget and great with a nice coffee! WOOHOO!!!”
"I was reminded of a milky way or pretty much any other candy bar that has caramel or a caramel with a little crunch."
“Let me be the first to tell you that this bar was nothing short of fantastic! I was absolutely giddy after taking my first bite!“
“Our absolute favorite — hands down — was the Chocolate Pretzel. At first bite, it was a surprise…I was not expecting the saltiness. But the addition of sea salt to the pretzel and chocolate combination is pure heaven. We cannot keep these bars in our house…they are virtually gone within a day or two of buying them, as all four of us fight over them and “keep track” of our supply!“
“How many times do you reach for a protein bar to stave off hunger or give you a boost only to be super disappointed or grossed out by its chalky flavor or yucky texture? Well, NuGo Nutrition bars will change all of that! Great flavors with vegan and gluten free options that almost make you feel guilty for eating them they’re so good! Great tasting and good for you.“
“I’ve tried a number of energy bars and health bars over the years and none of them taste as good as the NuGo bars. Most protein bars taste like ..something I can’t post and a few like Tiger’s Milk have been just decent. The Nugo bars are so good that all other brands have a lot to worry about.”
“I’ve tried all of the flavors in the NuGo Dark line as well as the NuGo Slim line and they all rock! Our official taste testers found the Mint Chocolate Chip and the Chocolate Pretzel flavors in the Dark line to be our favorites, with Peanut butter cup a close third, while the Brownie Crunch in the Slim line was our favorite.”
“Their greatest accomplishment however, is that my husband likes them, which for those who don’t know, my husband is the pickiest eater on the planet!” Overall grade: A
“Every ingredient something I recognize. No chemical names. Nothing that screams cancer-causing badness either. Just wholesome good food…wrapped up in a vegan and gluten-free treat.” “I devoured it if that is any indication. Honestly…amazing flavor. Every bite had a little bit of salty-sweet to it. It kept the palate interested. And I kept going back for another bite…savoring…yet devouring. It was the perfect snack.”
“Wow! For being low in sugar, these bars are fantastic!“
“Rich, dark chocolate with bits of raspberry. These are for chocolate-lovers!"
“The real dark chocolate is unbelievably rich and satisfying and it’s certainly what made these bars stand out to me. The perfect palette cleanser! What amazed me most was the fact that they could taste so delicious and still have great nutritional benefits. The Raspberry Truffle was out of this world. I absolutely recommend these bars!“
“Nugo bars are HUGE !! Way bigger than balance bars, zone bars…they're about the size of a Luna bar entirely covered in a coat of dark chocolate. But the center is made of these really yummy protein crisps, instead of some icky protein blend paste that’s supposed to look like cookie dough or carrot cake or key lime pie. They are SO satisfying.“
“Many protein bars are often full of sugar and are meant more for bodybuilders than a runner like me, but with only 2 grams of sugar in NuGo Slims I feel comfortable adding them to a post-workout routine. NuGo Slim bars also excise maltitol and artificial sweetener for real dark chocolate in a bar that is really an enjoyable snack.”
“NuGo bars have a filling somewhere between crisp and smooth, and rich and chocolatey – just what I was hoping for. Unexpectedly, the chocolate raspberry has been my favorite (I usually prefer chocolate-nut or pure chocolate flavors) which was a nice surprise!“
“I am SO excited because my favorite nutrition bars are now at Whole Foods in DC. NuGo, who makes a variety of bars also has a line of NuGo Slim bars, which are fantastic!”
“With NuGo Slim Bars I can have my chocolate… and enjoy every single delicious bite…. Guilt free!“
“I loved the Chocolate Pretzel bar, because I am a salty/sweet addict. It is made with real dark chocolate (not that fake strange “chocolate” substitute that leaves a weird after-taste).“
“Well, let me tell you about my major treat every single day: the NuGo Mint Chocolate Chip protein bar. They taste like Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. Oh yes they do.”
“The NuGo Slim bar knocked our socks off in the taste department.”
“I found a new bar called NuGo Free, not only gluten-free and certified, but kosher (OU Pareve) too. Also Vegan, Dairy-Free and Soy Free. The Cashier hadn’t tried them yet, so I only got one. And boy, I wish I had stocked up! SOOOOOOO GOOOOOOD“
“While I love these new flavors, I adore the Dark Chocolate Pretzel and Dark Chocolate Mint. I know what to ask Santa to put in my stocking this year!“ “One of the reasons I like the NuGo Dark line so much is because NuGo Nutrition uses real dark chocolate as opposed to fake dark chocolate made from vegetable oils.”
“I literally inhaled this bar!! It has just moved to the top of my list for protein bars!“
“I’m always looking for good protein bars to recommend to my clients. Recently, I discovered another winner-NuGo Slim.”
“And the Dark Chocolate Trail Mix bar. Also gluten, soy, and dairy free + 9g of protein. The flavor and texture of this bar is so delicious. It reminded me of a real candy bar, but without a list of 30+ unreadable ingredients.”
“Seriously, Nugo bars are my new favorite food/thing in the world. The first one I tried was the chocolate pretzel with sea salt when I was upstate over the weekend and I literally had to hold back tears this thing was so good. It seems that something that good could never be healthy, but they are definitely Jen(that’s me) approved. Every bite had a touch of sea salt and if you are crazy about salty/sweet combo’s, these will swoon you.“
“What’s ASTOUNDING about these bars is the taste. Apparently the folks at NuGo concocted some sort of magic spell that makes 2 grams of sugar sufficient without the need for fake sugars or sugar alcohols. Let me repeat. These bars taste GREAT and they only have 2g of sugar. Real sugar, not the fake crap. My world has been rocked.”
“Who doesn’t love chocolate + peanut butter? The taste is just like a nice candy bar without all that cardboard texture like most protein bars have. You’ll actually find yourself craving these.”
