NuGo- Nutrition to Go Review

The Idea

We could say the genesis of NuGo (Nutrition to Go) bars came to us in a brilliantly creative and inspired moment. But the truth is much different. It took lots of hard work and dedicated people to develop, manufacture and distribute the best tasting nutrition bars on the market.

As the story goes, two young men (then in their late 20’s) became interested in running as a means to keep fit both in body and mind. Add to that scenario the fact that one of the two originators had always been a little chubby as a teen and wanted to enjoy a snack that was both healthy and nutritious. Unfortunately, he couldn’t find one he liked on the market.

Working, first, in their respective kitchens and using only natural ingredients ( both great cooks), we came up with several recipes. Enlisting the help of family and friends as taste testers and ultimately the services of a food and nutrition specialist, the first NuGo bar emerged.

Marketing The Idea

With a wide variety of specialized bars on the market ours had to appeal to a broad spectrum of people. Back to our roots…the second partner learned early on the importance of balanced nutrition from his dad, a pediatrician. He also learned from his family the need for a healthy snack the whole family could enjoy anytime anywhere. Increased weight in kids was becoming a problem nationally.

Now the idea had a balanced plan: Market an awesomely delicious family nutrition bar. With a small staff but devoted number of employees, the idea and the marketing plan exploded. Soon, with the support of investors and a very wise business sage, the start up company was at trade shows and on shelves. The phones were ringing and people wanted NuGo Bars.

We continually respond to our customers’ requests for new and improved nutritional products with exceptional flavor and taste. Healthier choices from the nutrition conscious folks at NuGo will be at a store near you soon with more products debuting each year.

Our headquarters are in Pittsburgh, PA with additional offices in San Francisco and New York.

I was sent 6 bars from NuGo to try out and review. Boy are they delicious! I like every single one of them! My favorite would have to be the Dark Chocolate Pomegranate. YUMMMY! It was the perfect blend of fruity and chocolaty. YUM YUM YUM!

You all should hurry on over to NuGo and check them out!

Disclosure: I received a sample of NuGo nutrition bars to review for free. No monetary compensation has been offered or accepted. The opinions above are my own.


  1. At NuGo, we pride ourselves on making delicious, healthy snacks for all different lifestyles. We are so glad you have found and love our NuGo Organic Dark Chocolate Pomegranate bars.

    You also commented that is was "YUMMMY!" This is because we use real dark chocolate. Other companies use chocolate flavored vegetable fat coatings that often taste overly sweet and waxy. We will only offer bars with the best ingredients we can find. This makes our products taste better:)

  2. Thanks for the post. This one is what I am looking for. Keep up the good work blogger.
