HALO Bars: Review and Giveaway

Does anyone else here feel like they live out of their car?  We are go-go-go and I try very, very hard not to let our diets suffer because of it.  My kids often need to refuel before scooting off to the next activity and I don’t want them filling up on junk.  The perfect solution?  HALO Bars from ProBar!

My favorite! YUM!

Why choose HALO Bars?  From the website:  “Satisfying your sweet tooth with zero grams of guilt. Introducing Halo, the delicious between meals treat that’s designed to do your body good. With natural whole food ingredients and heavenly taste, these bars have such big flavors they take on a personality all their own.”

Available in great flavors like Rocky Road, Nutty Marshmallow, S’Mores, and Honey Graham, HALO Bars will make you (or your kids) feel like they are getting a sinful snack when they are really getting good for them fuel that will fill them up when hunger strikes!  I offered both children a Halo Bar on the way to soccer practice last week because it was a few hours past lunch but too early for dinner.

My son loved the Nutty Marshmallow and my daughter loved the S’Mores and both kids gobbled them up.  I felt good knowing the snack would tide them over through practice and until dinner and wouldn’t give them a sugar crash.  This is because the primary sugar HALO uses is organic brown rice syrup. In contrast to typical sugars like corn syrup, brown rice syrup has a low glycemic value and does not cause a sudden spike in blood sugar after consuming it.  HALO bars have zero trans fats or partially hydrogenated oils. At just about 150 calories each, you can feel good knowing this healthy snack alternative won’t do damage to your waistline!
