In August 2016, Zahra first saw NuGo bars at Whole Foods, and bought one of each vegan flavor. She tried her first one that day with a bowl of sorbet and was instantly hooked. She then tried a new flavor each day and really enjoyed comparing all the various flavors and textures. In the end, Zahra was clearly able to note which flavors she liked most in an Instagram post. “It was honestly hard to rank them because they are all just so good, and you can’t beat that dark chocolate,” exclaimed Zahra.
As a busy college student, she eats at least one vegan NuGo bar each day, adding up to about 10 per week. Zahra’s favorite flavor is NuGo Dark Mocha Chocolate. She also loves NuGo Slim Crunchy Peanut Butter and NuGo Dark Mint Chocolate Chip. Sometimes, she eats NuGo Free Carrot Cake, Fiber d’Lish, or NuGo Organic.
“Aside from the fact that NuGo bars taste amazing, my favorite thing about them is that there is a bar for every occasion, and they are so easy to work into my daily eats,” explained Zahra. She enjoys creating delicious bowls topped with NuGo bars and posting her eats on Instagram.
