About Zing Bar
We wanted to keep it simple for our patients to get “complete nutrition,” yet we also wanted to satisfy different opinions about what “tastes amazing!” We also wanted vegan options for those who are dairy-free. So we came up with eight very distinctive Zing bars that give the most choice in just a few flavors. Half are dairy free (vegan) and half use whey protein (the “gold standard” for muscle building). Two are coated in organic dark chocolate, two are soft chocolate chip cookie dough flavors and two are fruit and nut butter flavors. For all their differences, they all have a virtually identical balance of complete nutrition. A whole lot of choice in just a few bars! (source: zingbars.com
The majority of testers are raving about the taste and the selection of different flavors. With so many flavors available there’s however a chance that somebody might not like a specific flavor based on personal taste. Some buyers reflected that in their ratings, which affected the overall Zing ratings.
Buyers describe it from soft and chewy to fruity and nutty depending on the flavors. Overall great response in regards of the texture.
Chocolate coated Zing bars are made with cocoa butter for a smooth finish that melts in your mouth. Buyers love the fact that there are so many organic ingredients in each bar. The use of rice protein instead of soy has also been positively recognized. Good amount of fiber.
With $2.49 per bar at retail Zing is a little more than average for that size of bar and amount of protein. This is also the main reason why some buyers didn’t give Zing a full star rating, even though they liked the bar a lot.
