The Magic Spell in NuGO Slim

We received so many great reviews of NuGO Slim almost sugar-free high protein bars, but this new review from Mary at Fervent Foodie is one of our favorites.

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.

The magic spell she is referring to is Real dark chocolate and chicory root. We discovered this revolutionary potion, which allows us to make a delicious low sugar protein bar without artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols. Fervent Foodie describes the bad aftertaste and gastric problems associated with sugar alcohols.

Every low sugar bar I’ve tried to date has come up short. Quest Bars, Think Thin Bars, Atkins Bars… all absolutely horrible in my opinion. The most common failures for these low sugar bars are the texture and that horrible taste fake sugars give things. Blegh! I hate that… just thinking about it makes my teeth hurt! Not to mention that the sugar alcohols always seem to upset my stomach and make me regret eating the low sugar bar in the first place.

Mary wrote that she has searched for years to find a tasty low sugar bar since she is hypoglycemic. We are delighted that Mary has finally found her magic treasure!

Joy Bauer Loves NuGO Slim

We are so excited to hear that Joy Bauer loves NuGO Slim protein bars and recommended them to her fans. Joy is the Today Show nutrition and health expert. She is also the author of Food Cures and Your Inner Skinny. Today, Joy Bauer posted this review of NuGO Slim on her Facebook page.

Healthy Food Find! NuGo “Slim” nutrition bars. My “tasters” and I liked all 3 flavors (Brownie Crunch, Roasted Peanut, Raspberry Truffle) but Brownie Crunch was my favorite by far—it has a nice dark chocolate flavor. The bars clock in at 170-190 cals, 21-23g carbs, 9-10g fiber, 2g sugar, and 15g protein. As you can see, they have a nice amount of protein, plus they’re very low in sugar and have no artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols.

After watching Joy on the Today Show, we knew she would appreciate that NuGO Slim is the first almost sugar-free protein bar without maltitol or artificial sweeteners and has the health benefits of REAL dark chocolate. Thank you Joy for sharing your NuGo joy!

Great Reviews of NuGo REAL Dark Chocolate Protein Bars

We love reading and sharing great reviews of NuGo REAL Dark Chocolate protein bars. Here is a sampling of some recent reviews of NuGo Dark, NuGO FREE, NuGO Organic, and NuGO Slim. The first two reviews are from bloggers who found very creative and funny ways to declare their love for NuGo.

Funny Reviews:

Chocolate Covered Diamonds

Thanks to NuGo I have taken one small step away from processed foods and one giant step towards leading a healthy lifestyle. I leave you with this…

We started out as friends, but quickly became lovers

A naturally protein-packed bar with a physique like no other

You leave me wanting more after about a quarter to four

I indulge willingly because you’re never a bore

A moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips

Doesn’t apply here because you are perfect bliss!

The Rolls Royce of Chocolate

Beauty and Balance by Baynes

I’m in love… …with a protein bar. 

Yeah, I said it. I think I’ve found true love in a cute little chocolate, crispy protein bar. Why, you ask? What hath made my adoration so sweet? Here’s the top five reasons the NuGo Free Protein Bar is my new favorite hobby:”

NuGo Dark:

KosherEye Product Pick of the Week

NuGo is one of our favorite finds from the summer Fancy Food Show. In addition to their nutritional benefits, the bars taste delicious and are made with real dark chocolate. NuGo offers a large variety of kosher nutrition bars in numerous flavors and with various benefits, but we especially like the dark chocolate line because they are OU parve (dairy–free).

Healthy, Happy, Whole

The Dark Chocolate Pretzel is literally like heaven in a wrapper. In fact, any flavor I have tried has been fabulous

NuGO FREE:

NuGO FREE Dark Chocolate Trail MixGluten-Free Mike

It was an interesting mix of rice protein crisps, brown rice, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and walnuts. As if that was not enough throw in a coating of rich dark chocolate and you have granola bar kismet. The bar is just sweet enough to satiate your sweet tooth without being too sugary and the seeds and nuts are the perfect contrast to the chocolate coating.”

NuGO Organic:

Mama on a Green Mission

The NuGo Organic Bars are not only organic, but they are Vegan. They are the only protein bars made with REAL dark chocolate instead of chocolate flavored vegetable fat that can raise your bad cholesterol (LDL). The REAL dark chocolate in NuGo’s Organic bars is a natural antioxidant that actually has health benefits such as reducing bad cholesterol (LDL) and increasing good cholesterol (HDL). Don’t you just love it when there is a good reason to eat chocolate? I absolutely loved the Double Dark Chocolate bar!

NuGO Slim:

Mama on a Green Mission

I was really curious at what these bars would taste like because it seems most “slim” products I have tried aren’t the tastiest in the world. The slogan on the wrapper reads “Getting slim is now something you and your stomach can both agree on.” I think that’s such a cute slogan and you know what? It’s true! These bars are REALLY good! I preferred the Roasted Peanut bar more than the Brownie, but neither one tasted like “diet” bars! They each contain only 190 calories and 2 grams of sugar!

National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) Newsletter

“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.”

Shosh and the City

I love that these have a high amount of fiber, and protein, but don’t have a lot of other junk – and are coated in real dark chocolate. Love! I’ll definitely be ordering more!

The Candy Fan

The dark chocolate really is a nice touch on this very lightly sweetened bar. And there was no funky aftertaste that usually accompanies things containing artificial sweeteners. I really liked this bar. It was light and crunchy and perfect for my needs. And best of all: no headache! I’d really like to try the other varieties and I was super sad when I finished it and knew I had no more of them at hand.

Gluten-Free Bloggers Love NuGO Slim

NuGO SLIM Roasted PeanutWe are so impressed with the many great reviews of our new Slim bars. With only 2 grams of sugar from REAL Dark Chocolate and chicory root, these revolutionary bars make an exciting blog post. Here are some of our favorite quotes from gluten-free bloggers.

Gluten-Free Cat posted a glowing review of NuGO Slim and took some great photos of the bars!

I’ve found a gluten-free product that meets all of my personal nutritional and taste requirements. The only thing that could make this product better is if it didn’t have a wrapper, and it sprouted from a NuGo tree.

The deep chocolate taste of the brownie crunch was perfect for satisfying a sweet tooth, not too powerful, not too sweet. Just perfect. And the bar fueled me perfectly for teaching back to back BodyPump classes. I was concerned that the 180 calories in the Brownie Crunch bar wouldn’t be enough for a two hour workout, but the combination of carbs, protein, and fat couldn’t have worked better.”

Nosh – The Gluten-Free Kosher Critic also praised our Slim bars, appreciating their unique benefits.

These bars are unique to the line of gluten-free, kosher goodies, because they’re geared toward the low-sugar, high-protein consumer without artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohols found in a lot of other products.”

The Roasted Peanut was just right, like a chocolate-peanut butter sandwich. Definitely a go-to when you are hungry and need something to keep in your bag.”

The Gluten Free Traveller reviewed both our Slim and FREE bars.

The roasted peanut bar (Slim) has a good texture and bite to it and contains 15g of protein. Most of the protein bars I’ve tried are squishy but this one has some crunch to it. If you like dark chocolate and peanuts then you’ll like this. It tastes just like dark chocolate covered peanuts..in bar form.”

The Dark Chocolate Trail Mix bar is probably my favourite of the bars I tried. The mixture of sweet nutty granola mix goes well with the dark chocolate making it sweet and tasty.

The Delicate Place loved that the bars contain only 2 grams of sugar.

If you are looking for a tasty bar and watching your sugar, I’d definitely recommend picking one of these bars up asap!
