attune Mint Chocolate Bars

attune bars chocolate mint
To this day, one of my favorite flavors has been chocolate mint. I think it started when I first ate a thin mint cookie from the Girl Scouts. So when I happened across the Chocolate Mint flavored attune bars (I posted about a few additional attune bar flavors a while ago), I couldn't wait to get home to try one.

And wow - was I impressed! The combination of chocolate mint and crisp rice is beyond yummy, sort of like a mint chocolate Nestle's crunch. And, like other attune bars, not only are the bars delicious, but they contain probiotics. I am especially impressed that they are packed with *five* times more probiotics than yogurt. And yet, they don't lose anything in taste or texture. I really like the crispy rice texture with chocolate taste that all attune bars have.

Not only are these bars rich in probiotics but they are also a portable form of probiotics. One thing that I find challenging when I am on the go is keeping up with daily habits like taking supplements. So these bars are perfect – they work as a healthy portable snack. They are sold in the refrigerated section, but they do not require constant refrigeration. I've read that the cultures begin to decline after 1 month unrefrigerated.

Calorie wise, each attune bar is only 3 weight watchers points plus points, with 90 calories, 6 g fat, 12 g carb, 1 g protein and 3 g fiber.
Attune bars come in a ton of flavors: Chocolate, Chocolate Crisp, Almond Chocolate, Chocolate MintBlueberry Vanilla, Coffee Bean Dark Chocolate, and Raspberry Dark Chocolate. You can buy them in the refrigerated section of stores like Whole Foods or online at Amazon.
