    Default whats your favorite protein bar and why?

    Well I am starting this because I have been looking for some protein bar's and I finally found one I like. The Huney Stinger Peanut Butter ones.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I have to have a high protein diet due to me having a gastric sleeve done (not by choice mind you) but I haven't been able to find a single bar I like. I ran into this at REI and actually liked them. They don't taste like cardboard and actually taste like peanut butter vs. a protein powder. They aren't grainy or dry.

    So what is your favorite and why?

    Default Quest bars

    I buy Quest Bars from my crossfit box. Most contain 1-2 grams of sugar, 20 grams of carbs and 20+ grams of protein at around 180-190 calories. They taste amazing, and the texture is good. Not like cardboard at all. Cookies and cream and vanilla almond crunch are my favorites. They aren't cheap, though. Typically around $25-$30 for a box of 12. I get them for $23 as a member. Hope this helps.

    Probar Meal is hard to beat. They're soft and chewy, very hardy with very little sugar. A little expensive though.

    For what it's worth, the probars are now available packaged in half size bars ('bites') as well as the meal bars. Convenient if you want to snack more often in smaller quantities. Terrible in terms of extra packaging. Looked like the pricing was similar by weight.

    Check out Greenbelly meal bars as an alternative to Probars. THe nutrition is very balanced and the taste and texture are way better than most bars. Especially the texture.

    I also use the Quest bars. I love them. Tons of protein, little sugar, taste great. I have had the full gastric bypass surgery (I've lost 200 pounds!) and also need the extra protein.

    Pro bar "meal bars" are a great source of energy & pack a load of calories! I carried them on my JMT hike & they were amazing!

    The cheapest ones that sound like a flavor of cardboard that I may like.

    I have been "sleeved" too....

    I will have to try that Huney Stinger one.

    The Quest Bars have too much of a "chewie" thing for me (I can't do Cliff Bars now either).

    As someone who has to watch volume, I try to pack as much protein in to a bar as possible, while keeping the calories down. Basically, I look for 10 grams of protein per every 10 calories (or less). Meaning, a 20 gram protein bar should have roughly 200 calories or less.

    I'm always trying different bars, and there's a lot of new ones on the store shelves. Most are either too sweet, too crumbly and fa apart before I take them out of the wrapper, especially the real nutty ones. Some taste like their aluminum wrapper, or like cardboard.

    I keep coming back to ProBars. They're more expensive than most, but better than most.

    True. I stopped buying protein bars years ago. They are all over-priced, over-processed garbage. You should not view foods as the the whole food that they are, not their components(protein, fat, potassium, etc). So, while GORP is probably what I should be eating(or maybe apricots and almonds. GOAA?), I prefer the taste of the M's.

    Is there a reason that you are in search of food in bar-form?

    I guess only have 9g of protein doesn't really qualify them, but my family likes Bear Naked energy bars. To make it better I just found a 12pk at Big Lots for $5.

    They are 250cal and don't have any junk in them.
