For many people, there is something special about the combination of smooth, rich, luxurious chocolate and cool, refreshing, sharp mint. Which is why those people will be happy to know that today, February 19th, is the perfect day to celebrate the incredible combination of chocolate and mint due to it being National Chocolate Mint Day!
What better day than today to indulge in your favorite minty, chocolatey goodies, right?
However, for the majority of people, when you think of chocolate mint treat, your mind probably wanders to images that look something like these...
Not too shabby of a way to celebrate Chocolate Mint Day by any means.
I'm sure I'm not the only one that would enjoy these tasty desserts but then end up spending the rest of Chocolate Mint Day feeling guilty about the huge amount of extra calories that came with them.
Instead, for a healthier, yet still extremely delicious and satisfying option, it is just as easy to reach for the healthy nutrition, energy and convenience that comes along with a Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch Balance Bar!
If you caught my Balance Bar review earlier this year, then you already know that I found the satisfying crunch and perfect mix of flavors in these bars to come together for a light, refreshing taste.
Add to that the fact that they contain only 200 calories and have a whopping 14g of protein, and it's easy to see why a Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch Balance Bar would make for a guilt-free way to keep your sweet tooth and your waistline happy on this unique holiday.
Whether you have been waiting for Chocolate Mint Day to arrive or you simply know that it is better for your body to eat healthy snacks throughout the day to stay fueled (and not starving!), Balance Bars are a delicious way to keep you on track... while giving your taste buds a treat at the same time.
