Craving chocolate? Here’s something as equally amazing yet healthier to reach for #TrustTheTaste

June 29, 2017

Work. Kids. School. Homework. Life. The juggle. The hustle. You're busy, and you probably don't always have the time to snack well, or, like me, you might turn to something sweet when you need a quick boost, or a treat, or a comfort, or a stress reliever (I clean my work canteen out of scones almost daily).

And while every dietitian will tell me to enjoy some fruit after a meal or during snacktime to take the sweet craving away, sometimes all I want is something more indulgent, but without adding to my thighs that I'm trying to slim down.

Enter USN's new Trust Bar, which USN calls the guilt-free indulgence.

Here's why I like it a lot so far, and why it's now in my handbag and cubbyhole (I mean, I get peckish every evening on William Nicol and the highway):

– It tastes amazing, and a lot better than most protein bars on shelf. There are three flavours: Vanilla Cupcake (my favourite), Peanut Butter and Chocolate Coconut.

– It has 3g sugar per bar, prebiotic fibre (good for the gut), and 22g quality protein. Since I'm a vegetarian, this is an excellent way for me to get in more protein, without taking in more nuts and cheese, which don't help my thighs.

– It's low in carbs – it has about 7%, which is less than in the average chocolate bar, which has up to 59% carbs

– Even a small piece feels like a treat and I don't have to finish the bar to feel satiated 

– While some protein products on the body shelves in shops can feel intimidating as I don't know how to use them, or with what, or when, this bar is easy to "understand" – it's a snack bar that provides protein. It's not a meal replacement, but if you're stuck or busy, you could do worse than eating the Trust Bar as a meal (I have no doubt it's better than a scone at the canteen).

The delicious Trust Bar is available at DisChem (instore or online) for around R29.
