What kinds of things does Dad snack on in your house? My husband doesn’t have a huge sweet tooth – I’ve cornered the market on that thankyouverymuch. He prefers chewy, crunchy, salty treats. A little sweet in the mix is fine, but you won’t find him whipping up a pan of brownies at 11pm. Not that *I’d* ever do such a thing… 😉
My husband has a 45-60 minute commute twice each day to get to and from work, and he stays busy around here, too. I’m blessed with a guy who helps cook, clean, do dishes, mow the yard, entertain the kids, you name it. Let’s face it: men are busy people too, and so many healthy snacks are geared toward on-the-go women. Balance Bar has an awesome new Father’s Day Gift Set just for the guys that includes their delicious BARE Bars. (They’ve got it at a great price right now and it ships for free. Keep reading for details!)
The BARE bars come in three yummy flavors. The include Sweet & Salty Chocolate Almond, Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter, and Blueberry Acai. My husband loved the Blueberry Acai and I was all about the Peanut Butter. These bars are REALLY good. They are tasty, great flavor, but I just love the chew they have to them. They’re like a granola bar but thicker with more natural flavor.
BARE Bars are healthy. They are sweetened with all-natural organic agave and brown rice syrup. Each bar is 200 calories, including 15 grams of protein, up to 5 grams or fiber and 7 grams of whole grains. You really feel satisfied after one of these. These bars follow Balance Bar’s 40/30/30 nutritional model: 40% of calories from healthy carbs, 30% from quality protein, and 30% from dietary fat. It’s a great combo. After eating some snacks you feel ready for a nap, but not these. My husband and I both felt satisfied and ready to take on the rest of our day.
The Balance Bar BARE Bars Gift Set makes a great Father’s Day gift for Dad. These sets include:
- 15 Balance Bar BARE bars in 3 flavors: Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter, Sweet & Salty Chocolate Almond, and Blueberry Acai
- An exclusive Balance Bar Water Bottle with a compartment, perfect for storing a BARE bar!
- A fun “BARE hug” Father’s Day card
This gift set is only available online while supplies last and is priced at just $17.84 for a limited introductory period. They’re even throwing in free shipping and handling! This set is valued at $27 so this is a steal and a great alternative to another tie for dear old Dad. You’ll need to order by June 11 to take advantage of the free shipping offer.
