Happy Chocolate Mint Day! {Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch Balance Bars Giveaway}

Balance Bar logo
Peanut butter and jelly, french fries and ketchup, pancakes and syrup, pizza and ranch dressing (I'm telling you, try it!)... there is no denying that there are just some flavors that are made for each other.

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...

chocolate mint desserts

Not too shabby of a way to celebrate Chocolate Mint Day by any means.

But...

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!

Chocolate Mint 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.

Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch

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.

To find out more about the HUGE variety of Balance Bars and the endless number of flavors available, visit them at Balance.com and on Facebook and Twitter. As well as keeping an eye out for these bars at your local grocery store and health food store, you can also find them at ShopBalance.com as well as on Amazon.

Plus, thanks to the generosity of Balance Bar, one person will be able to have a minty chocolate dose of healthy nutrition as well, because...

One lucky person will win a BOX of Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch bars from Balance Bar!
