Zing, Might Not Call Them AmaZING But Pretty Good

20150303_133740I have been absolutely terrible about posting lately.  I have been under a lot of stress personally and professionally.  I have also been reading a wonderful new book (I can’t wait to share it with you!)

Today’s review features a bar I found at a grocery store called Zing!  Let’s begin:

HOW DOES IT FARE?

Company: 5/5

The company was began by a group of registered dieticians.  Although I don’t always rely on the title (you see plenty of “fake” doctors etc. out there) this company seems to have a pretty solid foundation.

Appearance: 5/5

The bars look very appealing.  Shown here is the peanut.  The dark chocolate hazelnut is coated in real chocolate.

Taste: 9/10

The peanut tasted a lot like a Quest bar…it had a similar texture to it.  It had a great flavor.  The Dark Chocolate Hazelnut bar was a bit different, it was sweet and very chocolatey.  It may be high in sugar but for a chocolate craving it did the job.

Ingredients & Nutrition: 8/10

I’ve seen bars with worse ingredients but I’ve also seen better.  It is extremely difficult to find a perfect bar.  In fact I don’t eat as many bars anymore fir that very reason.  The sugar content is high.

Variety: 5/5

The company offers bars with brown rice protein, pea protein, or whey protein.  I don’t see many companies that offer such a variety.  The company also offers ten flavors to choose from.

Availability: 3/5

The company has a long way to go if it wants to see more store shelves.  You might be able to find it in a store if you’re near a city.  As always you can find these online.

My score: 35/40
