If you know me you know I have a major sweet tooth. I love goodies, what can I say? But, everything in moderation and with the start of a new year I’m trying to make a better effort to eat healthier and take better care of myself. And let’s be honest: it’s not always easy. My birthday was a couple weeks ago (read – cake) and Valentine’s Day is in just down the road, too. So given all that, I was pretty excited to have the opportunity to check out this awesome alternative to a junk food Valentine’s Day from Balance Bar®. They have a pretty Valentine’s tin that’s full of delicious Balance Bars®. And yes, they’re yummy enough to satisfy your sweet tooth!
This Valentine’s Day Tin comes with 8 Balance Bar®. They had some in stock that included a variety of bars and the one that I got had 4 Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch Bars and 4 Chocolate Raspberry Bars.
Now I’ve tried many bars in my day. They always seem like a good idea for something healthy to eat on-the-go. But I have to admit that many that I’ve tried just taste…well, bad. So I’m always a little leery when trying a new one. But once we got this cool tin in the mail both my kids and I wanted to dive right in and give them a try! So we broke open one of each and split them up. And they’re GOOD! Really good! I was thrilled to find a bar that I actually think could easily take the place of a candy bar, yet it’s filling and healthy. And chocolate! Did I mention that they’re chocolate?! 😀
The Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch Bar was my favorite. This one has some crunch to it (obviously!) which I think helps you feel like you really ate something that will fill you up. And the taste is great! It’s kind of like a Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookie in a healthy bar.

The Chocolate Raspberry Bars are also soooo good! This one is a bit chewier, no crunch here, and it has a great, smooth raspberry flavor. Definitely tastes like dessert!
