Straight Up Bars

Here are the facts. They are snack bars. They have 100mg of caffeine, which is basically a cup of coffee’s worth. They have 10 grams of protein, which is more than many similar bars, but likely not so much that they’ll have that weird grainy/grassy protein bar aftertaste.

Sounds good, right?

But as with all items like this, it really comes down to two factors. First, are they yummy? Second, are they effective? To answer this, we point to the top two reviews on Amazon where these bars have earned 4 out of 5 stars based on more than a thousand reviews.

On the first point, how they taste, user Carmen Gutwirtth says:

Wonderful flavor and texture. This is like eating a normal cookie or candy bar instead of a utilitarian enrrgy/health food. I will definitely order again.

On the second point, are they effective, Brandy Cruz says:

My husband has been training for an ultra marathon, and we have been trying these bars out for about a month now and he says they are great to keep his energy levels up.

So there you have it. Good flavor, good energy.

Now, the only other thing we will say is that these are 200-210 calories per bar. That’s not nothing, but it’s also not much. And so, they’d be a great snack/pick-me-up between meals or might make an okay on-the-go breakfast option. But if you’re looking for something tasty and energizing for lunch or dinner, you might want to opt for something more substantial. For example:

  • Espressopa Azteca
  • Peach tart taurine
  • Beef Red Bull-gogi
  • Mon-stir fry
  • Guarancini
  • B vitaminestrone
  • Yerba satay
  • Mountain Stew
  • Risostretto
  • Liver with some java beans and a nice Chianti

Yep, they’re stupid puns! And one’s a dessert, not really a meal. But whatever, okay? Just buy some energy bars. They’re good, we’re told!
