Spring Cleaning for Home & Body from Balance Bars & J.R. Watkins #Review + #Giveaway

ABCD Diaries was given products for review purposes only. We were in no other way compensated. The opinions expressed in this post are ours and ours alone. 

We recently had the chance to review a selection of Balance Bars and J.R. Watkins cleaning products.


"While people traditionally consider Spring Cleaning to mean window washing, shower scrubbing and more, Balance Bar is celebrating the change in season by setting the refresh button and “cleaning up” some of our bad eating habits and introducing some healthier habits – including healthy snacking!"

What we thought:  We sampled a variety of Balance Bars including Dark Chocolate PeanutDark Chocolate Crunch and Dark Chocolate Coconut.  They were a huge hit!  The whole family loved them.  They make a great healthier alternative to other snack foods and are perfect for on-the-go!  The dark chocolate is such a treat, you'd think you were indulged in a candy bar rather than a protein packed, low calorie snack!  We also tried out J.R. Watkins Hand Soap and All Purpose Cleaner.  Both have a lovely White Tea & Bamboo scent that is amazingly fresh and uplifting.  A great way to start off a beautiful, clean Spring!
ABCD Diaries gives Balance Bars and J.R.Watkins products an A+!
