Zego Bar Snacks
Nowadays store shelves are filled with a wide variety of cereal, energy, nutrition and snack bars. What once was a niche product used largely by athletes post workouts and by dieters as a meal supplement has gained popularity among consumers in general. In order to capture some of the market share and shelf space, bar makers must differentiate their product from the next and ensure consumers understand what sets their bar apart from others.
Zego bar snacks are one of the newer players in the nutrition and snack bars market. They are the only nutrition bars designed to be nourishing and not hurt your stomach, trigger common allergies or spike your blood sugars.
Zego makes its sunflower seed-based bars without eight major food allergens, including gluten, peanuts, tree nuts (except coconut), soy, dairy, eggs or GMOs. They are also low glycemic, vegan, kosher and paleo-friendly. Zego also uses QR codes on its bar wrappers and boxes that show measurements of specific allergens from the bar’s batch, allowing sensitive consumers to make safe choices.
Zego bars are available in two flavors: Sunflower and chocolate. They have a thick, rich, chewy consistency. You can taste the sunflower in both flavors. The taste of Zego bars received mixed reaction from those who tried the bars I received, including myself. I preferred the sunflower flavor.
Right now, Zego bars are offered mostly in retail stores in the west. You can purchase them online through their website. They retail for $5.75 for a 2-bar sampler package, which is priced in line with similar products.
