NIGHTFOOD Cookies N’ Dream Review

NomNomNom…

I am absolutely in love with these delicious bars of chocolaty goodness.

 

 Night food bars are a dietary supplement bar that “satisfies after dinner cravings, keeps your diet on track, supports better sleep and is a good source of fiber and protein.” I agree with these statements 100%! With ingredients like organic brown rice syrup, chicory, rolled oats, chocamine and puffed amaranth (protein rich, gluten free grain) you can snack happy without worrying about all of the artificial flavors and chemicals that come from candy bars and relax with a bar that actually supports a healthier eating lifestyle! If that doesn’t convince you to try them, these 140 calorie night time snack bars are packed with  great things like fiber, calcium, iron and 6g of protein with only 9g of sugar and 35 calories from fat but taste just like a regular grocery store snack bar (but better ;)!

First impression was that they were a bit messy when I broke it apart, it is all put together very well but that is expected from anything you eat. There are 6 perfect snack size bars per “filling” and “satisfying” box. These ‘optimized nighttime nutrition’ bars are all that they claim to be. I do feel like they did help me fall into a peaceful sleep faster, not in a medicated kind of way but in a relaxing and calming way. They do taste like they are made with rich cocoa so I wasn’t surprised to see that they used Chocamine, also they taste similar to a protein bar so they aren’t overwhelmingly sweet like a candy bar would be at 11 pm. I didn’t get a sugar rush nor did I still crave anything sweet after eating these. I have eaten about 3 bars over the last week or two so I am fairly certain of the effects it has on me vs those of the normal salty, sweet fatty things we all crave late at night!

 

Final thoughts, I recommend this product! It’s fairly inexpensive to try, your first box if FREE just pay $4.95 for s&h then cancel your subscription, hassle free, if you don’t absolutely love it! If you just have a tendency to wake up in the middle of the night, hungry, this is something you should try. If you are someone who does get late night cravings and you know that apples and grapes aren’t going to hit that sweet spot and you want to indulge beery once in a while without all of the guilt then I do recommend these. I don’t however think you should purchase these thinking they are a night time sleep aid, they will not put you out like a PM pill and that is NOT their purpose, they do however aid in a more calming and restful sleep. Don’t take it from me, try them for yourself here, you have TWO great flavors to choose from, Cookies N’ Dream and/or Midnight Chocolate Crunch!

Also don’t forget to leave any feedback or questions you may have in the comments section!
