Protein/Energy bars

I have tried Clif bars and Power bars...Clif bars are ok, so far the Power Bars are really good. What kind of protein/energy bars do you like??? Also, I saw an article not too long ago about which ones are the best for you to eat and I forgot what was on it, tried finding it again with no luck, if you have any insight into that (best for you, not best tasting...although if I don't like the way it tastes, I'm not gonna eat it, LOL!)?? Please and thank you!

  • My favorite are Luna bars. Not quite an energy bar but Fiber One bars are really good too.

  • I haven't tried the bars yet (we have some, I just haven't gotten to it yet), but I REALLY like the taste of the Muscle Milk shake powder. It's a bit too thick/rich at the listed powder to water ratio, so I usually mix it with 2x the water. But it's yum. I've been having that for lunch for about a month now.

  • I like the Clif bars. The brownie and oatmeal raisin ones are my favorite. I also like the Peanut Butter Power bars. My husband really likes the EAS Chocolate protein powder.

  • coder chic- does the powder taste the same as the ready made shakes? Those had a STRONG sweetener taste to me. I tried the chocolate one.

    I like the Cliff bars best. I usually just buy the singles to test out different kinds before I buy a whole box. I like to have them on hand for hectic times when I can't eat breakfast OR when I am out and get hungry- curbs the urge to go to a drive thru.
