If manna ever falls again from the heavens I think it will be in the form of ZBars.

I had intended to have one right beside me to look at, refer to–eat–while I wrote this post but they’re all gone. And I started the week with two full boxes of six a piece. I first discovered ZBars in the health food section at my grocers (I’m a Luna bar fan too–Nuts Over Chocolate is my all-time favorite). I thought I’d pick up a box as an after school snack for my kids–after all, they are supposed to be energy bars for youngsters. My husband found them–and promptly hid them–after downing just one. They are that addictive. My kids noticed my husband’s (okay, mine too) need for ZBars and wanted to try them too. Now we have a house rule of only one a day. But with five of us….well, we go through boxes quickly. (I found the best price for ZBars is at Target.)

Haven’t tried a Zbar yet? Let me describe the addiction. ZBars are organic granola bars put out by the folks who craft Clif bars. They’re designed for kids, packed with rolled oats, chocolate, oat fiber, fig paste and all sorts of good-for-you ingredients. Each bar has two grams of fiber, no cholesterol (and no undecipherable ingredients either). There’s only 3.5 grams of fat per serving and less sugar than a slice of bread. But I’ll admit, that’s only part of the reason I buy them. The real reason? They taste just like brownies. I should back up and say my flavor of choice is the Chocolate Brownie bar (Chocolate Chip isn’t nearly as satisfying–I promise).

So for after school, after dinner, after soccer practice, after a long day, after pretty much any activity, ZBars are great for kids, but you should really try one too.
