I recently came across g2g bars…and after seeing a couple pictures, I knew I had to try them. They just LOOKED so good. Luckily, I had the opportunity to try a bunch of them. Halleluiah! (PS Check out the end of this post to get a COUPON CODE for 20% off of your g2g bar order!)
These bars are different than a lot of protein bars because they’re super dense so they fill you up and are nice and chewy…just the way I like em’! If you’re a fan of peanut butter and/or almond butter…um, who isn’t!? You’re gonna LOVE love LOVE these bars. Why? Because the first ingredient (thus, the main ingredient) in each of them in is almond butter or peanut butter!
They have 4 super yummy flavors…
Almond Chocolate Chip
Almond Fruit Nut
Peanut Chocolate Chip
Peanut Fruit Nut
These bars look great, taste great and ARE great for you. I love that they are made with REAL foods. They have no preservatives in them…so they need to be kept in the fridge for long term storage, but that’s not a bad thing! Plus, they taste great chilled.
Let me tell you this. The first one I ate…I thought “I’ll just eat half, I’m just going to taste it”. So I did…and then about 5 minutes later…I went back and ate the other half. I told my roommate to try one if she wanted to…same thing happened to her! She said “I couldn’t just eat half, they were so good that I had to eat the whole thing”. I’m telling you, so yummy!
A few awesome facts about g2g (by the way…the g2g stands for Good 2 Go)
1. They have no refined sugar, they’re sweetened mostly with honey
2. They contain flaxseed for added protein, fiber and healthy fats
3. They’re flavored naturally with cinnamon and vanilla (which makes them taste AMAzing!)
4. They have a ton of protein (from whey and the almond/peanut butter)
5. They are made with awesome ingredients that provide a ton of health benefits (like oats, cinnamon, honey and flaxseed)
Nutritionally, all the bar flavors are pretty much the same (per bar):
Calories: 298 kcals
Protein: 18 grams
Fiber: 4 grams
Fat: 14 grams
Sat Fat: 2 grams (which means the other 12 are from healthy fats!)
Cholesterol: 0 grams
Sodium: 85 grams (low-sodium…which can be hard to find!)
Total Carbs: 25 grams
Sugars: 15 grams (from natural sugars)
I’ve been trying to not to eat them all at once, they’re just so good and they are the perfect sweet tooth cure, because I feel like I’m eating dessert…no joke. I had the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip one the other day after my morning run and it kept me satisfied and full until my sister’s bridal shower later that day…where why too many sweets were consumed (oops…)!
These bars are for sure going to be worked into my protein bar hording collection. I like to have a few different kinds of bars so that I don’t get sick of the same kind, eating it over and over. And these ones are fantastic in every way. Promise.
