Review: NuGo Dark Protein Bars

Not too long ago I shared some very exciting news from NuGo about their Dark Chocolate bars.  Three of the five varieties are now certified gluten-free!  I was finally able to find the Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt and Peanut Butter Cup varieties the other day at Giant Eagle.  They were on sale and I need to make sure to go back for more now that I am in love. 

Haha!  I love Elf

The first bar that I tried was the Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt.  I am not lying when I tell you that I did a little dance after taking my first bite.  Unfortunately I was at the gas station filling up my van with gas after my workout, so I apologize to those who may have been subject to my absurdity.  I even whipped out my iPhone to take this picture to show you the yummy goodness:

Do you see the sea salt?  I literally inhaled this bar!!  It has just moved to the top of my list for protein bars!
