Sweetheart VoxBox: Skinnygirl Bar

I had heard of Skinnygirl before receiving this package, but only for their cocktails, not their Daily On-The-Go Nutrition line of products.  Unfortunately, this product is the womp-womp of my VoxBox, I am allergic to tree nuts.  I was so sad because this bar looked so good too!

I went to the Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go Nutrition website, looking for an alternative product to try.  Each product had the nutrition fact readily available, but sadly, none of the bars I wanted to try were tree-nut free.

But that's okay, receiving the product reminded me of how much I have enjoyed Skinnygirl cocktails in the past, so I went to the package store on my way home and bought a bottle of white Sangria.  It was fantastic, when I got home, I had a nice big glass with my buddies at MacLaren's.  
[How I Met Your Mother reference there for some of you who might not have gotten it! haha]

As for the bar, you ask?  My coworker, Tracy, was more than happy to take my place with this review.  She loves coconut and peanut butter so she was only a little biased about how awesome it is!  The first word that came out of her mouth was, "Yummy!!"  She immediately looked at the nutrition information [she is very health conscious], and liked that it was high in fiber, Vitamin E, and even had 8% of her daily iron.  It was also relatively low in sugar, but did not taste like it.  She said that the main flavor was coconut, almost tasting like toasted coconut or pina colada.  When I asked her about the nutty flavor, since it is "Coco-Nut," she said that it was a very subtle flavor, more almond-y than peanut-buttery.

When I asked her what could make it better and how she would rate it, she said that a little drizzle of chocolate would make it an 11, haha!  Thank you, Tracy, for your help!

Overall review: 9/10

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Love the HIMYM reference. :) Too bad you couldn't try the bar. I haven't tried anything from the Skinny Girl line. I think a white Sangria and Coco Nut bar combo sounds pretty good though!

Ah, too bad! But I agree with her, drizzle some chocolate! haha! ;-)

Love some HIMYM! I have never tried the skinnygirl products, but I know their cocktails are very popular!
