Did you know today is National Chocolate Caramel Day? Yeah, I didn’t either until Balance Bar contacted me a week ago letting me know .

I for one think that anytime a national day involves chocolate we should ALL find a way to participate.

Balance Bar Caramel Nut Blast

Balance Bar and I actually have a history together. The very first protein bar that I ever tried was a Balance Bar. My mom used to buy them for me when I was in high school (I just got my 10 year reunion invitation – I can’t believe it has been 10 years).  I dealt with some low blood sugar issues in my teens and so she would always try to have one in the car or in my backpack just in case I started to not feel good.

My go to flavor was always Chocolate Peanut Butter. Once I got my sugar levels under control I didn’t eat them as much anymore.

To be honest, I love protein bars but I really only end up eating them if I have no other option or I am on the run.


Balance Bar sent me a box of their Caramel Nut Blast to try out in honor of this national day dedicated to chocolate and caramel.

I didn’t get to try them out until Monday in between my run and work.

The center reminded me of a Snickers. It has the consistency of nougat with a thin layer of caramel on top. Of course, I won’t go as far as to say that it in any way tastes like a Snickers bar, but it is pretty delicious.

The really enjoyed the Caramel Nut Blast.  I tend to stick to chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel flavors when it comes to protein bars. I don’t eat them all that often, but when I need a quick snack this is a great option!
