Nature valley protein bar

These are not very healthy are they? Any good choices for a healthy protein bar with chocolate flavor?

Depends on what you are looking for as far as healthy, lots of different parameters. I like South Beach Good To Go chocolate bars. They are the closest to hitting the mark that I have found for me so far.

Thanks for the tip.  Went ahead and ordered 8 packs just 2.59 apiece and 5.95 shipping.  They sound better than the others.

I'm diabetic and eat these for breakfast several days a week, good dose of protein & low carb.

I like the cinnamon raisin & the peanut butter bars.

Holy cow, I'm chomping on the peanut butter/dark chocolate one right now as I read the thread.  What a coincidence.  

 

I really do feel bad eating these, they have every kind of sugar in them imaginable.  I keep them around because I sometimes literally do not have time to make breakfast as I'm running out the door on days I'm working and grab one for emergencies.  It's 190cal and keeps me full till lunch.  It's a bad habit really.

I like them because they use brown rice syrup. I try to minimize my consumption of white sugar and corn syrup.

 

The Good To Go dark chocolate bars are only 120 calories (some of their other products are a little higher) with 6 grams of sugar, but the best part is it takes care of my chocolate/sweet fix because I eat them after dinner as my dessert.

They miss the mark for me on that and a few different areas, so consequently I have never tried them.
