All opinions expressed in this post are my own. As Brand Ambassador for SoLo GI® I have been provided products to facilitate this review.

Today, I’m sharing some exciting news with you! Bites for Foodies has become a brand ambassador for SoLo GI®, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been given the opportunity to collaborate with a company whose product I truly love, and I also get to share their amazing energy bars will all of you!

Living a healthy life should be a top priority for all of us – I know it is for me. I also know that one of the most important things I can do to maintain a healthy lifestyle is to choose wholesome, natural foods that fuel my body. Making healthy food choices can be challenging, especially with our busy day to day lives. Easy, convenient foods like energy bars are great choices for on-the-go snacks or full meal replacements. When my busy life sometimes prevents me from setting aside time to prepare healthy meals or on-the-go snacks, I resort to energy bars to refuel my body. Fuelling my body on a constant basis is essential for my personal well-being since I suffer from moments of low blood sugar. SoLo GI® bars are the perfect energy bar for complementing my healthy lifestyle since they not only refuel my body, but also prevent my blood sugar from spiking.

SoLo Energy Bar Review + Giveaway

These unique bars are marketed as energy that sustains, since they are made with the perfect blend of slow release proteins, carbohydrates, and fibres that provide a lower glycemic response than many other leading energy bars on the market – and they couldn’t be more accurate in their motto. SoLo GI® bars contain roughly 200 calories, 25g carbohydrates, 7g fat, 3-4g of fibre, and 10-13g of protein which makes them an ideal option for most people. Did I also mention that these bars are delicious?! They come in 10 unique flavours – all of which I’ve had the pleasure of tasting, which include;

Dark Chocolate Almond
White Chocolate Cherry
Peanut Caramel Sea Salt
Lemon Lift
Chocolate Charger
Dark Chocolate Coconut Mint
Pineapple Coconut
Mocha Fudge
Peanut Power
Dark Chocolate Mandarin

What better way to celebrate this exciting collaboration than with a giveaway?! One lucky winner will receive 10 FREE SoLo GI® bars, one of each flavour for you to enjoy. This giveaway will run for one week and will close at 11:59pm EST on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017.

    • You have to try them Stephanie. They truly are amazing…and way better than other energy bars (that I’ve wasted money on!!).

  • I love snack bars and every now an d then have one. I try to keep some on my car just in case. I think I would enjoy the lemon bar. Sounds good.

I’m usually all about the chocolate or peanut butter when it comes to energy bars, but there are some other flavors here I could see myself really enjoying (I’ve been in a total pineapple kick lately, yum!). Definitely entering the giveaway so I can try them all!

  • As a mom to 2 busy kids, I am always looking for filling snacks for on the go! I am definitely going to be packing these in my bag when I am sitting at the softball field. They will be a lot healthier and give me more energy than a greasy bag of chips!

  • lifesmoments16 10 months ago

    I’d like to try many of them. However, I would definitely be interested in dark chocolate products.

  • I am usually not a fan of those energy bars because of the taste, but these definitely look like ones I could try and like.

    • These taste like chocolate bars (the chocolate ones obviously!). They aren’t chalky nor odd-tasting because of the protein.

  • Elaine 10 months ago

    They all sound delicious, but I love anything lemon, so if I had to choose just one, it would be lemon lift.

  • Susie Bilodeau 10 months ago

    Would love to try the White Chocolate Cherry or the Dark Chocolate Mint. They all look so yummy, all except the ones with Peanuts. We have a severe peanut allergy in our home so we have to be a Peanut free home.:)

    • Hi Susie!! There are so many delicious nut-free flavours. Thanks for stopping by and entering the giveaway. Good luck!

  • I haven’t been able to encounter this brand before but it looks like Dark Chocolate Coconut Mint stays delicious! I can just imagine how tasty it would be! Gonna ask my relatives and friends if they have already encountered this brand, I will ask them to buy them for me.

  • I have not tried these before. Looks like a great brand to look into for snacks. The chocolate flavors sound great.

  • I love having quick snacks on hand that won’t leave me wanting something else soon. These Solo Energy bars look so tasty! I love all of the different flavor options, too.

  • These SoLo GI® bars sound great and yummy – as I do eat protein bars when I’m out shopping! Just checked the prices and looks like a great deal and to get 10 free would be fun! Thanks

  • Would love to try lemon lift!

  • I have not yet heard of solo bars, but would be very interested to try them, especially after this post. I am a big fan of protein and health bars that have mint so would love to try the dark chocolate coconut mint. I love trying new things.

  • I love the packaging and the calorie count! I need energy bars in order to do long work days and to travel. I’ll have to try these!

  • nmetolen75 10 months ago

    I haven’t tried these yet. I love tasting new energy bars. I’m pretty picky about them, so it’s always exciting when I find one that tastes amazing. These come in so many cool flavors! I think I would really like the Dark Chocolate Mandarin, yum!

  • Okay, these look and sound seriously delicious. I’m not huge fan of chocolate but I bet I would totally love the Pineapple Coconut variety. Love how packed with all of the good stuff they are.

    • You’re the first person I’ve heard who has said they ‘don’t’ like chocolate, one! I prefer the chocolate ones however, the Pineapple Coconut is really good too!

  • This is one of my favorite easy grab snacks food either I go on a hike, road trip or at work. . Very tasty and so many flavors to choose from. The Dark chocolate with coconut mint is my favorite among all of them.

  • Nicole Bowers 10 months ago

    I am torn between the Dark Chocolate almond and the Peanut Caramel Sea Salt.. YUM!

  • Nidhi 10 months ago

    I am dying to try dark chocolate almond bar. love the combination. In fact all flavors sounds delicious. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Wow SO many delicious flavors! I love it when I find a healthy snack alternative that tastes amazing! As a Type 1 diabetic I have to carry healthy snacks with me anytime I leave the house. I will look for these and try them out! White chocolate cherry would be my absolute first choice! I would love to try all of the flavors though. Good luck to everyone in the drawing.

  • Vera Bortolotto 10 months ago

    I would love to try the Peanut Caramel Sea Salt! I love the sweet and salty together! I also love the fact that it is 200 calories per bar.

    • They’re a really great snack option, in terms of calories. I usually have one before I work out, which is perfect because those 200 calories just disappear, lol!

  • Oh these bars sound like they would fit into my diet amazingly. I like that they are only 200 calories but with a great amount of protein! With training for upcoming training season for running these would be great for a before race when it’s 6 am and I can’t stomach anything. Mocha Fudge & Peanut Power sound like the top two flavors I’d want to try!

    • You should check out their website. All of their ambassadors (except for me!) are athletes, many of whom are runners!

  • LisaFavre 10 months ago

    The Solo Bar looks like the perfect snack to bring with me to work. I often try to “brown bag” my lunch and I make sure it’s filled with healthy, delicious things. I should even try this out since I am trying to lose my baby weight!

  • I need to stock up on these. My entire family is always on the go, and that means that healthy eating becomes an issues. It’s hard to eat the right things when you’ve always out and about. Thanks for the heads up on these.

  • I’m always looking for a new bar to try!! I think I would try the pineapple coconut…time to expand my taste buds….usually go for the chocolate peanut butter kind They all sound delicious though!!

    • Anything chocolate is usually my go-to but with these it’s easy to expand my taste buds because they are all delicious.

  • Wow, only 200 calories per bar is pretty good. Since they also prevent blood sugar from spiking that seems like a better deal. I’ve been eating the KIND brand bars because they were the first gluten free options, but I haven’t needed a breakfast bar lately. These are great for on the go situations!

  • Shazia D. 10 months ago

    I would love to try all of them, especially all the chocolate ones.

  • Love to try Dark Chocolate Almond
