Vega One Nutrition Bars (DISCONTINUED)


Vega One Nutrition Bars have been discontinued. But Vega still makes several other bars, all vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and soy-free. See the round up of Vega Protein Bars. For even more options, see our Dairy-Free Snack & Protein Bar Reviews.

Though I’m not a big protein supplement person myself, when I do consider a protein powder, my favorite thus far is Vega. At Expo West, I sampled little bites of at least twenty different bar brands, and that was just a fraction of the options. But naturally, as a Vega fan, I had to trial the new Vega One Nutrition Bar.

Thus far, I’ve only fully sampled the Chocolate Almond variety, but I got a bite of one other at the show, and can confirm that each seems to have a similar bar base and chocolate robe.

For those of you interested in the health aspect of the Vega One Nutrition Bar, I would personally call this a protein bar plus, and even a small meal replacement (and yes, they are quite filling!). It has a nice balance of protein (15 grams), plant-based fats (11 grams – from almonds, chia seeds / oil, and cocoa butter), and fiber (6 grams) with a fairly low sugar count (12 grams) considering the sweet and chocolate-y taste. But beyond these whole food basics, each bar is infused with a greens blend of alfalfa grass, spinach, broccoli, and kale; antioxidant-rich “superfoods”; and some gut-loving probiotics. Plus, like all of the Vega products that we’ve trialed to date, these bars are vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free.

Tasting Notes for Vega One Nutrition Bar

The Vega One Nutrition Bar is names as such, because it contain their popular Vega One protein powder blend. It is definitely a protein bar in texture with a soft center that is lightly chewy and has a somewhat powdery finish. They add bits of interest with a few nuts and whole chia seeds. I think I would have liked the chia seeds better blended in, but they weren’t off-putting.

I enjoyed the overall flavor, which was much like you would expect of a chocolate “greens” bar, but the robe of semi-sweet chocolate escalated it to a more delicious level.

We had several other tasters on the job, and responses were along the lines of “pretty good” and “tastes like a Balance Bar” (from those who eat dairy).

The price on these is a little bit out of my budget. But for a meal replacement-style protein bar, it is likely within reason and a great option on the go, after a workout, or for a quick breakfast.

  1. Hello, I love the vega all in one bars. I know it’s all plant based and good, but how is it preserved? What’s in it that makes it last long on the shelves? Thank you.

  2. I had one of these bars for the first time tonight. I chose a Vega One bar because it didn’t contain high fructose corn syrup and nutritionally looked pretty good. I had a crazy evening with no time for dinner and this beat the drive thru both time wise and health wise. It was hands down one of the tastier things I’ve had lately and definitely fended off the hunger. Thanks Vega!

  3. I agree that they are on the spendy side. I usually still have a few around for “grab and go” moments. I actually really like the Chocolate Cherry version of the bar. I like bars that I can bite into and actually pull out a nice big chunk of fruit.
