Win A Nimble by Balance Bar Quickie Chick Gift Set, Giveaway Value $109 and Review of New Nimble Nutrition Bar for Women

Balance Bar has recently teamed up with lifestyle expert Laurel House, a.k.a.  Quickie Chick,  for a very special review/giveaway opportunity featuring nimble, the first bar for women that combines beauty and nutrition in a delicious, indulgent bar.

And I am sooooo excited to be part of this amazing review and giveaway!  Thank you so much Balance Bar for creating the Nimble Nutrition bar for women and sharing an amazing prize pack, Valued at $109 to one lucky USA entry!

If you have never head of Nimble...let me share a little info so you can see much Nutrition is packed into each of these bars.

Nimble bars are based on 40-30-30 nutrition principle.  What does that mean you ask? 
40% of calories are from carbohydrates, 30% are from quality whey and milk proteins (nimble contains no soy protein) and 30% is from dietary fat. This formula was developed to stabilize blood sugar levels and promote a slow glycemic response to help you enjoy delicious, lasting energy. I know as a full time working and mother of 3 little boys...it is so important to make healthy food choices to be able to keep up with life.

Nimble is making that easy as each small bar contains 5 grams of Fiber, 10 grams of Protein, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin D and Vitamin B6 for your body.  Plus 10mg of Lutein, Beta-Carotene and Antioxidants C and E for your skin.  They are so easy to take along anywhere.

I was provided the New Nimble Yogurt Orange Swirl and Peanut Butter Nutrition Bars to sample and review. 

I have to say first I was delighted how such a petite bar could satisfy my hunger (considering each bar is only 120 calories).  Both flavors had a nice firm but soft and smooth texture.  They did not stick in my teeth and were pleasant to eat (If you are looking for something that taste like a candy bar these are not for you.  But if you are looking at making healthier food choices...Nimble bars are a great choice.)

My favorite was the Peanut Butter.  It had a nice light peanut butter flavor and was not overly sweet.  It was similar to other nutrition bars I have eaten in the past..but didn't leave me feeling like I was eating "twigs and sticks".

The Yogurt Orange Swirl was good and very light in flavor.  I was able to catch some slight orange tones.  I would definitely purchase both of these flavors again.

Remember one lucky person will win a fabulous Prize pack including:
· Twelve bars of nimble in two scrumptious flavors - Peanut Butter and Yogurt Orange Swirl
· An autographed copy of Laurel’s just-published book, “Quickie Chick’s Cheat Sheet to Life, Love, Food, Fitness, Fashion and Finance on a Less Than Fabulous Budget”
· A limited-edition retro-50s-style wildflower wristlet by glittersweet®
· Two Bloom Black Ties - a hair tie that is also stylish jewelry. Wear it in your hair or wear it on your wrist. Either way it’s “The Elastic All Dressed Up!”
A $109 Value!!!

So who wants to win?  Enter below and best of luck.  If you would like to get a jump start head on over and follow/like Nimble Bar on Facebook and Twitter

samples of these products to review/giveaway, and I was under no obligation to review it if
I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or
