Vega One All-In-One Nutrition Bars

New from Vega is the Vega One All-In-One Nutrition Bar. My favorite new product of 2012 was the Vega One Shake, so I was pretty excited to sample these bars. When I heard the name I assumed they would be similar to the shake, but that isn't the case. I would have loved to see a French Vanilla bar, but maybe next time!

Basically, the Vega One Bar is a chocolate covered protein bar designed for pre/during/post workout or whenever you need a shot of dense, Vegan sustenance. Vega has been kind enough to send me some bars to try out. I've been eating them after the gym and I must say they're pretty filling. So I've had a couple weeks with the bars to form my opinions. Are the Vega One Bars right for you?  

Well, I hope you like chocolate! Each of the three bars is covered in chocolate, which makes them seem a little like a candy bar. Being that they are covered in chocolate, you don't want to leave them in your car on a hot day (like I did, whoops!) The three flavor choices are: Chocolate Almond, Double Chocolate and Chocolate Cherry. Chocolate Almond has a nice almond flavor with a little bit of crunch. Double Chocolate is a chocolate lover's dream with chocolate on the inside and outside, giving it a brownie taste. Chocolate Cherry lives up to its name with dried cherries and cherry flavor in the bar. Being that all three bars are basically chocolate, the differences are subtle. My favorite is the Cherry, but any of them would be great after a workout. 

Now, you're not going to mistake these for a Go Max Go Bars, but for the amount of nutrition packed in one bar (15 grams protein, 6 grams fiber and tons of other vitamins) I think they taste pretty darn good. My only complaint would be the lack of a non-chocolate variety. So, if you are looking for a convenient shot of protein and vitamins, take a look at the Vega One Bar!


  1. Oh man, I got one of these in my VeganBattleRoyale goodie bag (chocolate almond) and I really loved it. Of course, I am 100% in agreement with chocolate, so that isn't an issue for me. I really wish I had secretly snagged one of the other two flavors so I could try those too! :) I loved the crunchy almond bits in the almond one, I loved the crunchy chia seeds, and I also appreciated that it actually tasted like chocolate and not like some lame-o hippy faux-chocolate. I guess my only complaint is that they cost so much. I can't see myself dishing out $3.50 for a power bar, even though I loved it so much.

    1. Lucky you Amey! Yeah, $3.50 is pretty high. But at the same time, a Go Max Go bar is about as expensive and the nutritional benefits aren't as good.

  2. im not a big protein bar gal, because they usually taste weird, but i really should look into getting more protein, as any vegetarian/vegan should.
