Review and Giveaway: HALO Bars!

If you do not know this, I have a bit a a sweet tooth. I eat a lot of sugary snacks (as my husband pointed out to me the other week). I am also trying to lose weight so I have been cutting down on "treats". So, I was excited to learn about ProBars. They offer delicious, convenient, healthy plant based snack foods. They're low in sugar, dairy-free and organic. They are a healthy treat that you and your kids can enjoy!!

We tried the ProBars sample pack AND the HALO variety pack. We loved both but let me just focus on the HALO bars, which included their new Honey Graham, Nutty Marshmallow, Rocky Road, and S'Mores Halo™ bars. Each bar is just 150 calories! Much less than a candy bar! (I replaced candy bars with these bars and It has saved me a ton of calories!!)

I expected these would be a hard granola type bar, but they are not at all. They are actually moist and soft (not like hard granola bars). I was glad I got to try all four flavors because in our house we had a wide array of reactions to the different flavors. Each of us had a different favorite, and there was one flavor we each disliked. I thought I would like the S'mores one best but it did not taste much like a S'more to me so I did not like it much (probably because my expectation was so different). I thought I would not like the Honey Graham so I tasted it last, but ended up liking that flavor the most! My kids thought the Rocky Road was the best, my daughter liked Nutty Marshmallow and my husband liked the Smores.

As mentioned above, I replaced a candy bar a day with these HALO bars and was able to save some major calories. I feel it has helped me along the path to lose this baby weight!! Check out this comparison of HALO bars to candy bars:

I am so glad that I get to share this great product with one of my awesome readers! ProBars is giving one Beckee's Deals reader an entire box (12 bars) of HALO Bars!! SWEET deal right?!

This will be a quick giveaway ending next week on 9/30/2011 (It will say on the rafflecopter form that it is ending on 10/1 @12:01AM EST, but that is 11:01pm on the 30th here central time, so that is why I am calling it 9/30 as the end date)
