I am kicking of National Nutrition Month with a giveaway! You all know how much I love Attune bars and talk about them a *lot* like a lovelorn teenager. Well, the nice folks at Attune noticed my bloggy love and sent me some bars and the opportunity for one of my readers to win some! Was I going to turn that down?? Thank you Attune!
What are Attune bars? They are probiotic chocolate bars. From their website: Each bar contains –
- Only 3-8 grams of sugar
- Excellent source of calcium
- Only 80-90 calories
- 3 grams of fiber
- Attune probiotics are proven to survive in the digestive tract, where they can provide optimal health benefits.
- The probiotics in Attune have been clinically tested to support a healthy digestive system and a strong immune system.
- Attune wellness bars also include prebiotics (inulin), which support healthy digestive function and work in harmony with probiotics.
Attunes are found in the yogurt section of the refrigerated case. Or, in the natural foods refrigerated case (where they are in my store). There are several different flavors to choose from. The milk chocolate flavors (plain and almond) and the white chocolate blueberry are good, but my favorites are the dark chocolate ones. The straight up dark chocolate bar is great for that portioned chocolate fix in the mid afternoon 🙂
The coffee bar has bits of crunchy coffee beans in them and a nice coffee flavor. The raspberry (which you all know I love) has chewy bits of real raspberry in there, giving the bars a tart and sweet taste.
Then I think the mint chocolate is #2 for me, as it has a cool minty flavor along with some rice crisp crunch. Guess I like the textural thing….
Now, I will be honest here, I don’t buy these so much for the probiotic part. What I like is that they are the perfect portion size, which is probably one my favorite things about them. Dark chocolate belongs in everybody’s healthy diet, and this is a great way to get it in there.
Now for your favorite part! Attune is offering a week pack (7 bars) of dark chocolate Attune bars to one of my readers:
As these have to be shipped cold pack from Attune, the drawing is for US residents only.
