Olivia first found NuGo bars at Whole Foods in Pittsburgh, PA, where she lived originally. She tried NuGo Slim Raspberry Truffle and was hooked immediately. Now as a college student and runner in Florida, Olivia eats all of the vegan NuGo Slim flavors as well as NuGo Dark Chocolate Pretzel and Mocha Chocolate.
She started following a vegan diet in January 2017. Olivia eat NuGo bars on her work break and sometimes for dessert. Her dad even eats a NuGo bar for a quick breakfast.
She said her favorite thing about NuGo bars is the real dark chocolate coating. “I hate the waxy, fake chocolate found in most protein bars.” Olivia shared her joy about NuGo bars and sharing them with her dad.
“I'm so happy to be able to share NuGo bars with my family members and friends. My dad is a picky guy, and these are one of the few protein bars he'll eat. I'm also so grateful that even after going vegan, there are so many tasty NuGo options I can choose from!”
Olivia runs cross country for her college. In January 2017, she ran her first half marathon and loved it. She placed first in her age group with a time of 1:33! As a health science major, she is preparing for a career in either sports nutrition or rehabilitation.
