Product Review: NuGo Egg White Protein Bars

A dozen NuGo Egg White Protein Bars for me to try!!!  Woohoo!!!
Disclaimer: I received a variety box of NuGo Egg White Protein Bars. to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to find and write race reviews. 

Made from very few ingredients and able to fit into a variety of lifestyles, the NuGo Egg White Protein Bars are rich in protein.  Each bar contains 12-14 grams of protein and is non-GMO, gluten free, Paleo (except for the peanut butter bar), and Kosher Pareve.

I have been using these bars over the last several weeks, including a week of intense trail running/hiking at altitude in the Rocky Mountains.  They are a good source of healthy calories, dense and rich in protein.  They have no added sugars, no dairy, soy, or artificial ingredients.  They use only real fruits and nuts as well as non-GMO egg whites, (3 to a bar as noted on the wrapper!), making these bars virtually fat free and cholesterol free.

They come in 4 flavors: Dark Chocolate Sea Salt, Blueberry, Maple Pecan, and Peanut Butter.  Shortly after these bars arrived, I did a taste test with a selected panel from my family.  

Tester number 1 leads an active lifestyle and has been known to split boards in half with his bare hands!!!
Tester number 2 has a picky palate and as such adds distinct credibility to this professional scientific research we are about to share with you as potential consumers.
Tester number 3 is currently doing computer coding for a video game world he shares with his siblings...when not looking to show off his rugged good looks!
We are still questioning the sanity of tester number 4.  While being a beautiful, fun, and friendly woman, she just might be crazy being married to a man who regularly considers it fun to torture his body at various running race distances across all types of terrain in the U.S.A.  She has also been known to make up songs about how she's a Hula Girl.

Tester number 5 is an animal lover, already having 4 pets and constantly trying to push her father into buying more!!!  Oh, and we believe she ate dog food when she was younger!!!  (So her taste in food might be questionable for this research!)  

Finally, tester number 6 has the smile and twinkling eyes of a secret genius.  Her siblings fear that her future self will be one of power and mayhem over all of our lives...oh wait, this is just a taste test...she likes things that are herself!!!


This scientific, highly proclaimed academic exercise of tastiness occurred the afternoon of July 1, 2018 in an undisclosed location of Western New York State.  The professional who prepared the samples of NuGo Egg White Bars, (whom we shall in further statements simply call the Sampler), prepared one bar of each of four flavors, including: Dark Chocolate Sea Salt, Maple Pecan, Peanut Butter, and Blueberry.  Note scientific and professional pictures below:

The bars prepared.

Is the Sampler drinking beer in that Pilsner SiliPint?

While I cannot share all the data and research that was discovered that day, nor how exactly it was retrieved, I am able to share with the mass consumerdom who read this post, the following results:

Tester number 1, Mr. Active Lifestyle, loved bar D, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt and proclaimed it the best.  He also enjoyed bar A, Peanut Butter, saying it was sweet.

Tester number 2, Miss Picky Palate, also loved bar bar D, stating that it "tastes like a chocolate coffee," or "really good brownies."  Her second choice was bar C, Maple Pecan, saying it had strong flavor and she really liked it, especially the taste of the nuts.

Tester number 3, Computer Model Man, also liked bar D, noting that it had a good after taste, however, he also enjoyed bar C, especially the cashews.

Tester number 4, Hula Girl, though originally skeptical, this tester was perhaps the most sharp on her analysis, noting every little taste and questioning various things.  Result: a bit surprising, but she went with bar A, noting the nutty taste and good consistency.  Bar D was also acceptable, as she commented the chocolate taste kicks in afterwards.

Tester number 5, Animal Lover/Dog Food Consumer, ranked all four bars in terms of her favorite flavor, bar D, bar B, (blueberry, heretofore not mentioned by the other testers as of yet) (or is as of yet what heretofore means?  Is it okay to randomlyrunwords togetherwhen everIwant?)  Anyway, bar D, bar B, bar C, bar A.

Tester number 6, Future Queen of Earth, while little was said, (there were comments we cannot publish for fear of future reprisals from the FQE), however, the FQE did pass judgment...Bar A was liked best with Bar C a close second.  


Well, scientific data has been known to be highly questionable, typically being more hypothetical and usually having a large statistic probability +/-.  But, if you haven't realized by now...this may not be the highly scientific, advanced academic research that many of you are use to reading and inquiring for when considering consumable purchases for athletic endeavors of endurance.  That said...I think the the Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt Nugo Egg White Bar was the winner!!!

In concluding conclusion of this heretofore but not yet finished can save 15% off of NuGo Egg White Protein Bars now through August 3 with code BIBRAVE.  Enjoy!!!

P.S. The following pictures are of me eating NuGo Egg White Bars while trail running/hiking in the mountains.  Please, unless you are professionally trained, do not eat NuGo Egg White Bars while running in the mountains.  Doing so could lead to pure taste enjoyment while not watching your footing and...well, the earth can come up at you at really fast speeds even if you are very slow in falling...
