Hey all so here I am coming to you with another product for review from the Sweetheart VoxBox I received from Influenster.
The Skinnygirl Daily On-the-Go bar. The flavor I received was the Banana Oatmeal Dark Chocolate. I wasn’t too excited for the flavor of this bar when I saw it because I thought two things: how many flavors are you going to put into one bar? and Eewww, dark chocolate. I do not like dark chocolate. Never have. I actually didn’t start eating as much chocolate as I do now until I was pregnant. I know, what a time to start right? My mother and sister were the chocoholics in the house growing up. And even now my chocolate has to be mixed with something like chocolate and almond or chocolate and toffee.
Its for that reason the bar receives its saving grace. Not only and I not a huge fan of chocolate but like I said I do not like dark chocolate, so it was a good thing it was mixed with both banana and oatmeal flavors. The banana flavoring is quite strong. It almost reminds me of the aftertaste you have in your mouth after eating a banana flavored Laffy Taffy. Yes, sweet, artificial candy flavor.
Overall the bar was actually pretty good. I think the banana flavoring mixed with the dark chocolate mixed well together and I couldn’t tell that I was eating dark chocolate. I didn’t get the strong (bitter) dark chocolate taste in my mouth so they balanced each other out.
In general I am not a ‘bar’ or ‘breakfast’ bar kind of person. I like an actual meal for breakfast. I am never satisfied after eating any type of bar no matter what they claim. Things like “keeps you full” or “meal replacement” mean nothing to me. I’d much rather have actual food. But if I am in a hurry or going on a trip I would consider buying these as travel snacks for sure.
How about any of you? Have you tried any of the other Skinnygirl Daily Bars flavors?
*note: I received this product free for review purposes and have given my honest opinion.
