Thanks to the folks over at #sweatpink , @FitApproach and VEGA bars I was able to sample all of the bars in several flavors! So here's my honest report: VEGA - Put to the test... a day in the life with a VEGA bar. Real life.
Soon after I received my box of bars the Hubs was heading out on a one week motorcycle trip. He quickly snatched up a couple of them to take with him since they don't stop to eat a lot. This time he went armed and prepared with healthy stuff. The verdict: He liked the meal bar best. Now this guy, he's a real texture and taste kind of guy. No gettin' any healthy or fancy stuff into him if it doesn't just taste good. He ate it, so it must have passed his test.

I ate it as a snack at work in between Patients and a busy schedule. It kept me nice and full until lunch. That's key for me. The only thing I'd love to see more of in it was protein. I look for high protein in everything. Although it was a few grams less than my usual greek yogurt snack, it did keep me full. So I'd give it 5 stars!
We've also tested these babies out on bike rides. It's an easy cycling snack giving you the perfect amount of carbs for sustained energy. They're small enough to tuck away in your jersey and easy enough to eat with one hand (that's key in the cycling world!)

So thanks VEGA for the awesome opportunity. Love a good taste test!
