Workdays are notorious for that mid-afternoon, post-lunch crash right around 2:30-3 PM. Most people try to battle that midday crash by drinking yet another cup of coffee, but what if you could enjoy an all natural treat like barkTHINS? Well, if you’re anything like me you’d probably be a pretty happy camper.
barkTHINS are all natural treats featuring snacking chocolate that provide a satisfying midday crunch. With a lot of varieties under their belt, the barkTHINS family of products offers a balanced way to snacking mostly using rich dark chocolate paired with things like pretzels, sea salt, pumpkin seeds and other goodies. I have had the chance to try a few varieties and they’re pretty good!
By far my favorite combination is the Dark Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt bag featured in the picture above. The salty sweet combination is a little taste of heaven. And the dark chocolate flavor is rich, dark and full which made me feel a little less guilty about eating a couple of bark slabs during the middle of the day. Dark Chocolate Almond with Sea Salt came up second in my list of favorites with Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed coming in a very distant third. It might just be my personal preference, but pumpkin seeds just don’t do it for me. But all in all, the barkTHINS line up is a pretty nice way to indulge.
Other varieties include:
- Dark Chocolate Mint
- Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut with Almonds
- Dark Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel with Sea Salt
- (Dark Chocolate) Blueberry Quinoa with Agave
Overall, I would say that if chocolate is a bit of a vice for you, then barkTHINS is likely going to slowly wrangle you in. I found the varieties I tried to have pretty good quality chocolate even though the pumpkin seed variety is not on my list of favorite things to snack on. That being said, I’m definitely eyeing a few of the other varieties and they might even become part of some holiday gifts for loved ones, because what’s better than gifting snacks you can’t feel bad about?
