Hip Hip Hurray Giveaway | Attune Bars (Healthy Chocolate!) 1 Week Supply + Link YOUR Giveaway!




A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a representative for Attune Foods who wanted to know if I would be interested in reviewing Attune Chocolate Probiotic Bars. I was intrigued, not just because Attune bars are healthy (each bar contains five times the amount of probiotics found in a serving of yogurt) but also because they were chocolate.

Healthy chocolate? Sign me UP!

My sample arrived just before Easter weekend which was perfect timing as I'd just spent the last 40 days or so of Lent not having any chocolate (or sugary treats in general). When Monday morning rolled around, my 8 year old daughter and I ripped open carefully opened the box and started sampling.

We tried these two varieties:



They were DELICIOUS! My daughter is a dark chocolate freak and she absolutely loved the intense flavor of the Dark Chocolate Attune Bar. I let her try just a bit of the Raspberry Dark Chocolate Attune Bar before I finished it myself - it was so delightfully rich with just the right balance of fruity raspberryiness (is that a word?).

While I turned the label over to read the nutritional information, I explained to my daughter that they were a healthier choice for a snack if you wanted something chocolate. After having my own chocolate tooth fully satisfied by one little bar, I expected to see a high calorie count; I was surprised to see that the Dark Chocolate Attune Bar was only 80 calories and the Dark Raspberry Attune Bar was only 90 calories. They certainly don't taste low-cal!

Attune Chocolate Bars are also gluten-free as well as being packed with healthy probiotics. I think these would be a great treat to have on hand for families dealing with Celiac disease, especially for children. And everyone can benefit from adding foods rich in probiotics to our diet; probiotics help to keep your digestive system and immune system healthy. You can read all about it here.

Attune Bars can be found in the yogurt section at your local health food store; to locate the retailer closest to you, click here. You can also order them online here. Feeling like you want to try them but not sure if they'll work for you? Try the Attune 14 Day Challenge - if you don't experience a difference in your digestive health, Attune will refund your purchase price. What a risk-free way to try a new product!

  13. I found your blog recently and have become a huge fan. I am a chocolate fanatic. I've heard so much about Probiotics but haven't really tried them as I'm not a huge yogurt fan. This could be just the introduction I need.

    Thanks for all your good work!
