By now, you know that I am big fan of trying all different kinds of bars. I recently found these bars called A3 Bars which come in fun, dessert-like flavors and are pretty low in calories. Personally, when it comes to selecting a bar, I like for it to be mostly under 200 calories. When it comes to the 300+ calorie bars, I find that they do not fill me up much more and I’m just consuming a ton of calories.
I was sent their three flavors of bars to try: Peanut Butter and Jelly, Honey Graham S’Mores and White Lightening Marshmallow. Each of these bars have 110-150 calories per bar. This is very low which makes it a great snack if you just need a little something sweet.
My favorite of these bars is by far the peanut butter and jelly. It takes like a peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich and is delicious. I had this at room temperature and heated up in the microwave and both ways were great. This bar has 150 calories, 15 grams sugar and 5 grams protein. It is higher in sugar than some bars but for a sweet treat instead of dessert, I think that it is a good option. My husband really enjoyed these as well.
My husband’s favorite was the White Lightening Marshmallow bar. This bar only has 110 calories, 6 grams protein, 5 grams sugar and 2 grams fiber. Not bad! They are made with soy protein crisps and brown rice crisp. My husband (who can be picky at times) really liked these and said that they tasted like a rice crispy treat. I tried a bite and liked it as well. It is a great swap for a rice crispy treat bar which does not have much protein or whole grains at all.
As an athlete, I think that these bars would be great for when you need a boost of carbohydrates. They are small and can fit easily in a pocket for traveling.
