Take a Break! Celebrate S’mores Day on August 10 with Balance Bar
Ahhhhh…s’mores…the delicious dessert comprised of graham crackers, gooey marshmallows and melting chocolate. So good that everyone wants “some more.” And so popular that this traditional campfire treat has its own annual holiday. August 10th is S’mores Day! But if you don’t have time to gather wood and sit under the stars, you can still take a celebratory break and enjoy the convenience and taste of Balance Bar S’mores. Balance Bar®, one of America’s original nutrition/energy bar leaders, has recreated the favorite campfire treat to provide a healthier option. Balance Bar S’mores has a crisp layer of graham cracker topped with a light marshmallow filling and covered with a scrumptious milk chocolate coating. This indulgent snack is specially formulated to help keep busy folks nutritionally balanced and to provide them with lasting energy so they can enjoy what they love to do in their active day-to-day lives.
Each 1.76 oz. single-serve Balance Bar S’mores contains 14g of quality protein, 200 calories, 23 vitamins and minerals with an excellent source of antioxidants and vitamin D, and adheres to Balance Bar’s proven healthy 40/30/30 nutritional model (40% of calories come from healthy carbohydrates, 30% from quality protein, and 30% from dietary fat) to help stabilize blood sugar levels, satisfy hunger and provide lasting energy.
I love hearing about new Balance Bar flavors, but the S’mores bar is the best so far! One of my favorite things to do in the summer is sit around the campfire and eat S’mores! I love them so much I bought an electric S’mores maker so I don’t even have to leave the house! The only problem, besides that they are messy and take forever, is they are so unhealthy. I don’t mind making them every once in a while, but I am certainly not going to let my kids eat them everyday. That’s where these delicious Balance Bar S’mores come in handy! They are full of vitamins and protein, and definitely control my cravings for sweets! I bring them with me to volleyball and to the swimming pool. I play volleyball for about three hours so they are the perfect snack to eat between games. They give me energy and curb my hunger. I also like bringing them to the pool for my kids. I hate trying to sneak in entire lunches, but I can easily throw a couple of these bars in my purse for us. I would recommend eating these yummy Balance Bar S’mores not just on National S’mores Day, but anytime you have a craving for something sweet but healthy!
Balance Bar S’mores can be enjoyed every day of the year! They are certified Kosher, are available wherever Balance Bars are sold, and can be ordered on the Balance Bar website and Amazon. Suggested retail price is $1.49. To get a one-dollar Balance Bar coupon, go to Balance Bar and click on ‘Get a Valuable Coupon.’
