Attention readers! There's a contest coming soon! I'll be announcing the details Thursday for this contest. It's to win an entire box of YouBars products that you can pick yourself so stay tuned!
The company YouBars.com was kind enough to send me a sample box of their fine products. I'm going to give my honest opinion of all the products they shipped me. No money was exchanged, only free samples which are much appreciated.
Tonight I tried my first sample bar. It was the date chocolate cereal bar. It is super delicious & really moist. It reminded me of a very good chewy brownie! I really enjoyed it & it was only 150 calories. It tasted like it was much more fattening than that. That's the best kind of snack I think. It did not raise my blood sugar up so I was very happy with this bar. I'll keep adding right here each day to this post as I sample the goodies they so kindly sent! Thanks youbars! I'll be adding to this page everyday as I try my new snacks out & posting a full review for each different product in the line they have sent. They shipped them priority mail so they were still nice & fresh well packaged.
