SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Halloween unofficially marks the beginning of the holiday feasting season but for families trying to stay healthy, the scariest part of this holiday is not ghosts and goblins, it's the ever-abundant Halloween candy bowl! According to U.S. Census Bureau statistics, the average American consumes an astounding 24.3 pounds of candy per year.(1) With Halloween as the nation's top candy consumption holiday, you can bet that much of that candy will be eaten in the coming weeks.
For those parents searching for a fun trick-or-treat alternative to the typical sugary candy bars, a great tasting treat that won't derail their healthy lifestyle is America's original nutrition bar, Tiger's Milk®.
The benefits of Tiger's Milk go beyond Halloween, as health-conscious adults can share these delicious nutrition bars with their children year round. Tiger's Milk is an easy and convenient snack for today's on-the-go families and offers a balance of protein and carbohydrates for energy. Whether they grew up on Tiger's Milk bars or are sharing them with their children for the first time, parents can be confident of their great value and quality.
Tiger's Milk nutritional benefits include:
- 16 vitamins and minerals
- Up to 10 grams of protein (king-size bar)
- Zero grams trans fat
- Good source of calcium and antioxidant Vitamins A and C
- Natural flavors
For nearly 50 years, Tiger's Milk has offered consumers a nutritious bar packed with essential proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Tiger's Milk is available in regular (1.23-oz) and king size (1.94-oz) bars. Both parents and kids will love all four flavors: Protein Rich, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter & Honey, and Peanut Butter Crunch. Plus each bar is individually wrapped in Halloween colored foil, making it the perfect size (and color) for trick-or-treaters.
