Anyone who knows me would describe me as someone who is always on the go. Therefore, I am always looking for something healthy and nutritious that’s quick and easy to grab, toss in my purse, and eat while on-the-go. Thankfully, a company that I have been a long time fan of, NuGo (you know my love of the NuGo Cookies!) now offers the new Nugo Egg White Protein Bars!

Here’s the rundown on all four flavors!
I’ve always been partial to blueberry, so I know I would already like this flavor. I was a big fan of the blueberry chunks that come in the bar and love that they add a little burst of flavor when you bite into them. Also, the almonds add a little crunch to a very chewy texture and bar. If you are feeling adventurous, you should have a bite of this one, and then also a bite of the peanut butter. It’s like a blueberry peanut butter pancake.
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt
Brownie-batter-taste meets Tootsie Roll-texture. The simple combination of rich, sweet chocolate, cashews and almonds makes this a standout of the bunch. Although I would love to see a bit more sea salt added, it was still good. This bar was chewy but soft, without being too much of either. This one is AWESOME heated up or better yet, put it in the fridge for an hour and it has the same texture as a cold brownie.
You can’t go wrong with a bar solely focused on PEANUT BUTTER. A nice mix of sweet and salty flavor. It even has that “stick to the roof of your mouth” feel that an actual spoonful of peanut butter has. This flavor has a touch more sweetness and some serious peanutty intensity. I liked it, but something didn’t quite grab me. It needed something – maybe cinnamon or vanilla?
I saved the best for last – Maple Pecan! Maple is, after all, the new “it” flavor. The perfect mix of salty and sweet. If you like waffles or pancakes with maple syrup, this bar will bring you back to your favorite breakfast meal! LOVE the pecan chunks in this one. If you are obsessed with maple, then you’ll really enjoy this bar.
If I had to rank them, I’d probably have to say Maple Pecan was a clear favorite, followed by a tie between Blueberry and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt, and then Peanut Butter. They were all delicious but I can’t overstate how especially tasty the Maple Pecan bars were.
