I like having a granola or nutrition bar in the afternoon. This week I tried a new one, The Skout Organic Trailbar. The flavor was Chocolate Plus Peanut Butter.
This is not a nutty granola kind of bar, although there are small bits of peanuts mixed in. The texture is more like a compacted brownie. It is a cross between the Chocolate Brownie Zbar and a Nugo Free Chocolate Crunch.
The ingredient list is fairly simple: dates, peanuts, oats, agave nectar, cocoa liquor, almonds, sea salt. Most of the ingredients are organic and the chocolate is fair trade.
It was delicious! It’s very chocolatey with a hint of peanut butter. If you need a chocolate fix, this will give it to you!
I was a little disappointed in the size. I expected a larger bar considering it has 18 grams of sugar. That is more than a Nugo Dark Chocolate Chip Bar which has 14 grams–and the Nugo is larger (and more satisfying). At 18 grams of sugar for this size, it is more like a candy bar.
This is one half of a Skout bar.
This bar tastes good. But the small size and high amount of sugar grams makes me reluctant to have it as an everyday snack. I would have to split them in half as I try to keep my sugar grams within a certain range each day. A half of a Skout Bar is not a satisfying snack in my opinion. If it was larger, I’d be thrilled! It’s a good occasional snack though.
