I recently tried a brand of nutrition bars called NuGo that I was very surprised by. Not everything in these bars are totally raw food, but they are a much healthier alternative to most other snacks and they are so incredible tasting that I had to write about them.
I was at Whole Foods and one of these bars, specifically the Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt, was laying out of place with other products and I picked it up thinking it looked like it would taste good so I purchased it.
I tried it later that day and was stunned by how great it tasted. No exaggeration. I’m not being paid to blog about this product, but if NuGo wants to send me free bars I’ll accept. 🙂
I’ve tried several other flavors since then but the Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt is the best. Other video reviews of this product are also commenting that this is the best of the bars. They also have a few totally Vegan bars called the NuGo10 bars that are also great. I’ve tried a number of energy bars and health bars over the years and none of them taste as good as the NuGo bars.
NuGo has put out a wide variety of flavors with some being Gluten Free, Soy & Dairy Free, Vegan, almost Sugar Free, Low Glycemic, and all Organic.
The family of bars as of this writing are…
- NuGo Free
- NuGo Slim
- NuGo Organic
- NuGo Dark
- NuGo Family
- Crispy Cat
- Smart Carb
- NuGo 10 (Vegan)
There are multiple flavors within those products so as you can see they have a lot to choose from. I would recommend the NuGo Dark Pretzel with SeaSalt for sure.
Here’s a quote from the NuGo website as of this writing…
“NuGo makes the finest, healthiest, most delicious bars available today. NuGo believes that pure, natural ingredients are both better for you and better tasting. From our very first bar to the latest, we’ve maintained a commitment to creating great snacks without taking shortcuts. NuGo uses only real milk and dark chocolate on our bars, not fake chocolate coatings made from vegetable fats! Real chocolate gives NuGo bars a distinctively delicious taste. Enjoy.”

Gluten Free • Dairy Free • Peanut Free Facility • Raw • OU Pareve, Vegan
While most of the bars are obviously not completely raw foods, they are quite a bit healthier than most snack alternatives and they taste so good that you won’t want the less healthy stuff anyway. I was honestly blown away by the tastes of these bars. I’ve only tried some of the flavors as of this writing but I suspect most if not all of them are quite good. I’ve found them at Whole Foods and Sprouts but you can also check out their web site at http://www.nugonutrition.com/.
