Balance Gold Caramel Nut Blast

Balance Gold Caramel Nut Blast

Buy chocolate on Amazon


Taste test: We received this as part of a vendor's "survival kit" promotion for the Consumer Electronics Show.

This flavor is supposed to remind you of a Snickers bar, as it has peanuts, caramel, chocolate and something that resembles nougat. But like all energy bars, this one tasted like they took all the taste out of the bar (or at least the sweet part). The bar was hard to chew, and the nougat tasted dry. I think all of the energy you might receive from eating this bar is wasted because of all the energy it takes to chew through it. Have a glass of water handy so you can wash this out of your mouth after you're done. That said, it wasn't the worst energy bar I've ever had, but it certainly wasn't the best.

Shop: Buy chocolate on Amazon

Smell test: Smells like a chocolate energy bar (not a good chocolate smell).

From the package: “Balance is a high protein bar with a special blend of 40-30-30 Nutrition: 40% of calories from carbohydrate, 30% each from protein and dietary fat.”
