Have I mentioned how much I love contests?  Almost as much as I love giving away things, I love winning things.  But winning things, then getting to try those new things out and blogging about them?  Shiny happy Andrea ahead.

Next up in the ISS swag bag is an Oh Yeah! Natural bar.

Mmm.

Get back to basics with OhYeah! Natural Protein Bars. OhYeah! goes straight to the source of what’s good – and what’s good for you – with a light, great tasting, all-natural protein bar. An excellent source of protein and fiber, OhYeah! Natural is filled with wholesome oats and nuts for a satisfying way to fuel your body with what it needs.

So I open it up and what do I find?

Chocolate? Really?

Chocolate.  Chips.  As in chocolate chips.  And not just one or two.. but quite a few.  The chips are just on the top, though — they do not go all the way through:

Somewhat disappointing, but not really surprising.

But this WAS:

Peanuts?

There are whole peanuts in this bar.  So chocolate chips, peanut butter inside, the krispies, and whole peanuts?

These taste pretty good.  Not too sweet — which is quite a nice surprise.  It’s a bit dry — given the peanut butter and the “naturalness” of the product.  But the fact that it’s not sugar-laden or even evil ‘ol laden and dripping in sugar alcohols to hide the fact that it’s a protein bar and thus a good and healthy snack?  Wow, what a nice change of pace in the WLS world.

The size of the bar is probably too much for a newbie pouch, but pretty good for my 5 year old one.  It actually did a good job filling it up — probably the peanuts doing their thing with their sticking power.  If I were newly out, I’d look at halving or thirding it and saving the rest for snacks on other days.

In full disclosure, I have to share this.  I was in the middle of writing this review when the baby called for me — well, yelped in a pain-like squeal that could have signified anything from “I’ve caught my hand in the heater!” to “I’m hanging from the ceiling fan and I’m choking to death!” — when in reality he wanted to take off his shirt.  But in the process, I left about 1/3rd of my bar on the table beside my computer where I had not finished it.  It was suspiciously missing when I came back and one of the dogs.. the one that is secretly having WLS and B12 issues.. was slinking away looking quite guilty.  I swear, that dog had RNY and didn’t tell me.

Available several places online for about $1.50 – $2 depending on buying onesies or a box.

    I was wondering about the Oh Yeah Natural bars, thanks for the review.

    I hope your pup didn’t get a piece of the bar with chocolate.
