The Desk Diet: thinkThin Divine Bars Do NOT Disappoint

Need a great staple to help you stay on track when you're stuck all day at your desk?  Grab these little goodies and stock your drawers because they will become your new best friend.

I seriously had to do a double take when I first tried a thinkThin Divine Dark Chocolate Coconut bar

It know it's coming.....divine!

It tasted so much like an Almond Joy candy bar that I had to examine the nutrition information more closely.

This little nugget is 1.48 ounces of dark chocolate and coconut deliciousness.  It contains 170 calories, 19 grams of fat, 6 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber and 10 grams of sugar.  That is a good option for a sweet afternoon snack (something that is my weakness).

In contrast, an Almond Joy has 220 calories per packet, 13 grams of fat, 20 (!) grams of sugar and 2 grams of both fiber and protein.

No contest. 

The thinkThin bar is awesome.  It's not as syrupy sweet as Almond Joy yet tastes almost similar to it but better.  It's a more mature flavor profile, like adult candy.  The dark chocolate and real coconut add depth to the bar.  Perhaps the best thing is that it's pretty filling.  

An excellent choice if you're looking for that 4pm pick-me-up at work.   Stock your desk with these bars.  They're genius and so awesome that my friend, Tracy Kornet, and I rave about it (and more) in our Wonderful Wednesday edition of the Real Botox Diaries.
