Since I can no longer find my favorite protein/food Good to Go bars, made by the South Beach Diet company, I have been on the hunt for their replacements! These bars were easy to throw into my workout bag, a great quick snack, kept me full, and had a great taste! I have tried numerous food bars, only to be disappointed by the taste, texture, or nutritional information. So, I was beyond excited when Enjoy Life Foods announced their new line of Decadent Bars, and even more excited when I tried the four flavors offered because they are my new favorite protein/food bars! Each of the bars (S’mores, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate SunButter, and Cinnamon Bum) are gluten free, free from the top 8 allergens (Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Fish Free, Shellfish Free.) , and verified by the Non-GMO project. They are decadent because they are topped with a melt-in-your-mouth white or dark drizzle, depending on the flavor. Below I give you a little information on each of the flavors!
Cherry Cobbler: Cherry Cobbler is the perfect fix for any sweet & tart lover. Packed with tart cherries, this bar is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Topped with a melt-in-your-mouth white drizzle, this bar is the epitome of decadence.

While I enjoyed each of the bars, my favorite was the S’Mores (I am a chocolate girl), but in a surprising second place is the Cherry Cobbler. I am typically not one for cherry desserts, or anything flavored cherry (only real cherries), but I really enjoyed the Cherry Cobbler bar. Take the poll below to let me know which bar you would try first!
Go give these bars a try.
