By now most of you probably know I work three 12 hour shifts a week at work. I don’t mind being at work for 12 hours, my complaint is that I never seem to be tired when I get home. No matter how tired I am leaving work, once I get home it is like I get my second wind and am wide awake – and hungry. The days I work I usually grab fast food on my way home because it is too late to cook a “meal” by the time I get home. Once I get home I end up snacking all night long. I end up not going to be until around midnight and it takes me forever to fall asleep. Then I am up by 6am to start it all over again.
I was recently sent a box of NightFood to review. NightFood is the first nutrition bar specifically formulated as a bedtime snack. NightFood is Cookie and Cream flavored, which I thought I would like, but since it was “healthy” I wasn’t sure what it would taste like.
“I want to point out that it was important to me that the bars taste delicious, and almost indulgent. Research shows that many people crave something sweet at the end of the day, when willpower is at its lowest point. I
wanted a NightFood bar to not only support a good night of sleep, but
to help people eliminate the needs and cravings to eat junk that might
interfere with their sleep and other aspects of their health.” – Peter Leighton of Abunda Functional Foods
The bars contain inulin, which is a beneficial fiber that helps you feel full. They also contain organic brown rice syrup as a natural sweetener. The best part? They have real Oreo® cookie crumbles for that
Cookies & Cream flavor and a little crunch!
As I opened the package to try it for the first time, I was still skeptical, but after the first bite I was sold! They are actually REALLY good! They definitely satisfy any sweet cravings I have after dinner and keep me feeling full until bed time. I was surprised how good it tasted – I have had other nutrition bars before that claimed to taste great but tasted awful. These bars have the Cookies & Cream flavor that you would expect since they are made with REAL Oreos®! NightFood is also formulated to help you fall asleep more
easily, and get better quality sleep throughout the night. I have noticed that the nights I ate NightFood, the next morning I felt like I had a more restful sleep.
I want to point out that NightFood is not intended for children, or for women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Right now, if you go to the NightFood website, you can request a 100% risk free sample box (first time customers only). You have to pay full price for the box, but you get free shipping. If you don’t like the bars, just let them know and they will refund your money (and don’t worry you won’t have to send back anything)! If you like it, let them know, and they will send you a $5 off coupon! So either way its a win / win offer!
Every month they also give away 3 boxes to one of their lucky Facebook fans so make sure you “like” them on Facebook. It wouldn’t hurt to follow them on twitter (@NightFoodBars) either – you never know when I good offer might pop up!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
