Read the ingredients; what's not to love? My goal always when I pick supplements is on taste, and of course the actual energy it gives me during my workout. Love the flavors Love the flavors! Organic everything, well nearly everything. I have shared with co-workers and they like them as well. We visited a health store for about two hours one day to compare the ingredients on this bar versus all the others.
They have managed to make a delicious fruit soda that isn't sweetened with any sugar. I had to look at the ingredients three times just to be sure. And you know what? I'm not one to eat a pear normally, but this is delicious. It's really juicy and flavorful. My only complaint and this goes for all Hotlips sodas is it's only lightly carbonated. I like my soda to be moderately fizzy, but you barely notice it here. I'm going to make some enemies with this statement, but I don't care: I don't like cranberries.
That was until I had this soda. It's nice that it's naturally sweetened no real or fake sugar , and yet still tastes sweet. The cranberry taste is strong yet not overpowering like straight cranberry juice. When I moved back to Buffalo for 10 months, the number one complaint I got from fellow reviewer Jason was that I didn't review more Hotlips soda while I lived in Portland. You'd think I passed up a chance to see a one-off Fugazi reunion by the consistency that he would bring it up.
If he were my father, he might have disowned me, or at least cut off my allowance for a couple weeks. For those who are not familiar with it, Hotlips is a Portland, Oregon based chain of pizza shops that also make their own soda.
They are available on tap and bottled at various grocery stores around the greater Portland area. The great thing about Hotlips soda is that it's made with real fruit, something I didn't appreciate the first time I had one.
It only contains whole ingredients, no gross chemicals or filler. People's biggest complaint with Hotlips is their soda is VERY lightly carbonated, so little that sometimes it seems like it's not at all. Now don't get me wrong, I love carbonated soda, I just think of this as it's own thing and try not to compare it to traditional soda as far as the carbonation goes.
Now to this flavor, black raspberry. It's one of my favorite fruits so I might be biased, but I think it's delicious. Like most flavors, there are little chunks of berry in it that make the drink. I was pretty shocked when I saw this, but also excited to try it. It's a local Portland soda made by the people who run the Hotlips Pizza chain. It has a strong berry smell, but luckily the taste isn't as strong.
I was afraid this was going to taste like carbonated juice, but it definitely was not the case. The boysenberry is represented perfectly: The only major complaint I have is the price. I could see myself picking this up once in a while as a treat, but my wallet would never forgive me if it became a regular drink of mine.
I am excited to try the other flavors Hotlips sells, especially the blackberry and pear flavors. We love these bars We love these bars!!! It is very hard to find healthy snack alternatives for children on the go that they actually like!
After purchasing many different types all three of our kids absolutely love these. The reason for the four stars - price! Other than that, product review only, these are great.
They are not super sweet and both my children daughter 12 and son This bars are by far the most delicious energy bar i ever had. They are not super sweet and both my children daughter 12 and son 11 swim competitive and it helps them fell better before and after practice.
I highly recommend this product. Negative- I order 2 boxes of these bars thinking i would receive the one shown in the picture for bars with only 4g of sugar and net wright per bar as 1. I prefer for my kids the smaller size but they are both the same as good!
Best vegan snack bar around My go-to snack during busy days as a professional. Always provides exactly what I need for less than calories. The biggest reason I buy them is the organic whole ingredients and the fact that they are vegan.
As a vegan with an active lifestyle it can be hard to find healthy snacks with protein and carbs. These fit my life perfectly. Best snack ever We usually buy these at the health food store. I'm so glad I finally decided to check Amazon and buy them there. Same great thing for a cheaper price.
I love these bars. They are great if you're hungry and need a quick pick me up. Or just for a snack. I love the energy these bars pack for a reasonable calorie count and the nutty pecan and spice flavors make these more like a special treat than an energy bar. Each bar has 9 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat 1. Unfortunately for those of us who are carb-conscious each bar has 41 grams of carbs including a whopping 21 grams of various sugars.
The relatively high carb and sugar content is the only drawback to these bars, though be advised that they are a limited edition holiday flavor so buy them while you can. Of course Mikey likes just about anything with several exceptions e. As Individual tastes vary greatly, food reviews should be considered with a lot of skepticism. As to several reviews claiming the bars are "too sweet," I disagree. They're neither too sweet nor too bland. If you like several of the other Cliff Bar flavors, chances are you'll like the Banana Nut Bread bar.
Will buy again, only very occasionally. Local Banana Nut Muffins satisfy my cravings - more gooder. This particular flavor wasn't a hit with us, but not everyone has the same taste, so I'm not knocking it just because it wasn't our favorite.
This 3 star rating is more about the packaging than the flavor. The box arrived crushed, so a good portion of the bars were popped open and stale.
The inner box was damaged, not the shipping box. Other things in the box were just fine, but this one was clearly crushed under or between something much bigger before it was shipped. Disappointing, especially when these are so expensive! They might actually be Perfect! With a name like Perfect Bar you have to be a bit skeptical of the product. I have to say that I was not disappointed. This is a refrigerated whole food product.
It is refrigerated to keep it fresh and extend the shelf life. There are no preservatives, artificial ingredients or anything else to keep these shelf stable for an extended period of time. They are fine to be kept at room temperature before eating but it is not recommended to store them at room temperature. I prefer them warm- see details below. So what is in these? Organic everything, well nearly everything.
Sooo good I first sampled the Perfect Bar at my local Costco. They come in a box of 3 flavors, I still find that the box at Costco is still the best value one though you don't get to choose the flavor only Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, and Cranberry Crunch. Not so crazy about their Coconut flavors but I don't generally care for the taste of coconut anyway. My favorite so far: Their plain Peanut Butter is also very good, you can definitely taste the honey in that one.
The best bar out there! These are by far our favorite bars to buy- no matter what store we go to! They taste amazing, are so healthy for you, and are made with quality products.
Our 1 year old loves them also! We have gotten many friends and family hooked as well! You can taste the difference from the first bite compared to other "nutritious" bars. They taste delicious, and sometimes that's hard to say when eating something so good for you. We keep them cold, but you don't have to. They came packaged so nicely- you can tell that time and consideration was put into their shipping. It is so awesome to be able to buy these from Amazon.
Whenever we run low I just have them shipped right to me! This company has an amazing story and we will forever remain a customer. Excellent bars - best of bars I you haven't tried Skratch bars you will love this product. The ingredients are excellent, and none of their products cause bloating or stomach cramps like many other products.
The bars have fueled short and long rides and not only during mountain biking but also when going hiking or similar sport. The bars have a natural and excellent taste. I enjoyed the ginger ingredient in the bars, the pistachios and chocolate are also very tasteful.
I will definitely continue buying Skratch Labs products. The gels are amazing too, the powder mix are the best and overall I have no issues during or after my rides. I have used Skratch products for over 2 years when I found them by accident and I have narrowed my products to Skratch Labs. Try the product, you will like it. I would highly recommend this flavor. Thank you Skratch for making an allergy friendly energy bar that tastes good! Not my favorite or even close I understand these type of nutrition bars are not every going to be the best tasting things you can eat, but for some reason these do not work with my taste buds at all!
I would rather not even take them in my pack. I prefer most other products I have tried other than these. Probably just my personal preference. They look small but they are dense and pack a nice amount of nutrition in them to fill you up It's hard to only eat one a day, but if you can make them last it's worth it!! They look small but they are dense and pack a nice amount of nutrition in them to fill you up for a good while.
Perfect for when I work late at the office. Wasn't my favorite of all the Bounce ball flavors but not bad. They were something different! I've had them before and love them but the box I received from Amazon was non-edible. They were hard as rocks. As a joke my daughter and I were banging it up against the countertop and it sounded like a hammer! I bought these at Trader Joe's in the past and love them so was very disappointed at the product when I received it.
By Science in Sport. I recently stumbled upon this energy bar 5 pack that had several awesome flavors. I gave it a 5 star because As an avid crossfiter, my body needs all the extra energy It can get. My goal always when I pick supplements is on taste, and of course the actual energy it gives me during my workout.
I gave it a 5 star because I pretty much like all the flavors, and it was a great pre workout snack I could grab on my run to crossfit. Tastes very natural which is pretty important for me!
Love the flavors Love the flavors! The bars themselves are nice and light on your stomach and great for before and during my exercise and rugby training. I only scored it 4 out of 5 because I didn't like one of the flavors - banana fudge With the amount of training I do, I rely heavily on energy supplements. As a group fitness instructor, finding a quick source of energy when teaching back to back classes is really important for me. I recently tried this energy bar 5 pack with various flavors.
I only scored it 4 out of 5 because I didn't like one of the flavors - banana fudge. What I did like about these bars is it felt like I was eating real food. I ate these bars in between teaching 2 or 3 1 hour classes and they would work perfectly. Providing enough fuel to sustain me for the next class. By Taos Mountain Energy Bar. Delicious Bars Delicious and nutritious.
Not dry and very nice flavors with generous amount of nuts. Pricey considering they are not organic but probably among the best tasting and satisfying bars if you are hungry. The small hit of coffee helps too! I am on a special diet now, and these are acceptable for me to eat, so I am so glad to have something I can carry with me to eat when I need a quick snack.
I thought about giving only 4 stars, but that is only because I feel they are a bit on the expensive side. They are all tasty I got the mixed package , we have them in our car as emergency food, but finished them in no time! The reason I gave only 4 stars is because of the steep price. Small size protein packed, doable This is what I've been looking for, a good tasting protein packed thing that's not too much too eat to where your forcing it down.
The first bite taste like chalk but after word it's wonderful. If your the type of person that need flavor you probably might not like it meaning if you can't eat regular food with its natural flavor you probably won't like it. I liked that it is a bit smaller than some protein I was pleasantly surprised by this energy "ball".
I liked that it is a bit smaller than some protein bars. I also like that it is not as sweet as some. I have been eating Quest bars for awhile but this is nice as a snack rather than a meal replacement as a quick breakfast or an after school snack. I like the crunchiness of the cacao nibs. It is a bit too bitter for my son's taste but I like them. They are a bit pricey though. My only other "con" besides the price would be that you have to check your teeth after eating one.
Sometimes I get a few black specks in between. They're not too sweet, which is a big plus for me. They are soft and chewy I like the texture with crunch from the cacao nibs. These work well as a replacement for a cookie or brownie when I want a treat and don't want a sugar overload. I take a couple in my I take a couple in my jersey for every bike race.
If you really need some energy, you can put two together with some peanut butter. These are very tasty and great to carry around while hiking and road trips. Good Ole Honey Stingers These are a go to staple for endurance sports and lately the kids have been grabbing them to include in their school lunches.
Superstarch is the exception since the carbs are released so slowly, there isn't the same insulin response as other carbs. I can take the Superstarch powder pre-ride with some exogenious keytones to really up the keto energy! I've taken Superstarch, ridden, and then tested keytones a few hours later and I'm still in keytosis which is awesome. It isn't like any other bar on the market so don't expect It isn't like any other bar on the market so don't expect it to taste like a regular protein bar.
I am a dance teacher and carry a bar with me everywhere I go. I am recovering from mold exposure, which can mess with your blood sugar big-time, so I am dealing with hypoglycemia. Crankiness, paranoia, irritability, being hyper-emotional and even an over assertive personality shift occurs.
It is so bizarre and I had no idea that low blood sugar could do that because I've never dealt with this before. As soon as I eat this bar I start feeling like myself again within minutes. Coffee UCAN bars are delicious!
I am a marathon runner and mother of two kids. After reading some reviews, complaining of the taste, I was hesitant, but decided to give it a try anyway. I must say, they're delicious! I am also pleased that these are plant based and do not contain whey.
These are better than I anticipated.
