Help!! I Have Questions!!

Hey Y'all,

I have decided that I should start looking at buying some Protein Bars to eat on occasion.  The problem is this, I normally hate them!!  In the past, they have always tasted like cardboard.  Yuck!  So I am hoping that I can get some suggestions from you for some "REALLY GOOD ONES"!

My problem is that I am very picky about what I eat.  Not to mean that I only eat whats good for me!  Not at all!  I just don't like a lot of things, so I am more picky like a kid would be!  I don't particularly like Peanuts, so Peanut Butter flavored ones are pretty much out.  I don't like Raisins, or Cranberry's, etc.  So I am really in a pickle as to what I could eat, AND what actually tastes good and not like cardboard.  HELP!!  Is there any hope for me?  If so, what brands do you find the best?  I hate to spend a lot of money on something that I will never eat.  Any and all suggestions would be much appreciated!  Till next time.

Aloha My Friends  :)

I like the Fudge Graham Zone bars. Only 10 grams of protein, though, so they're not super protein-packed. I haven't really tried anything else.

I really like the Oh Yeah! brand. The one I like has peanuts and caramel, but I know they have several flavors. You can probably find them in single packs at a Vitamin Shoppe or something like that to try so you don't have to buy a bunch.

I LOVE LOVE the Chocolate Peanut butter zone bars, 200 calories 14g protein and taste like a candy bar! I find them at my local grocery store and Target!

Thanks guys, I will check into these brands!

I might check into these as well..I have been meaning to pick some up.

Debi said...

Good idea, especially when we start to get our restriction!! It is hard to eat enough food sometimes to get the amount of protein in we need.

I eat Zone bars for breakfast - they have tons of flavors; dark chocolate, coconut/chocolate, some fruit ones. They sell they individually at Target so that's where I try new ones.

Ok i absolutly lived on the twisted protein bars. You can get singles to try at Walmart I think but I buy them by the case at Costco. They com in chocolate, peanut better (not so good for you) and white chocolate. I totally hate the taste of protein powder and these do not taste of it at all. They are also not all air like so many of them are. These are dense and solid with caramel in them. I highly recommend them!

The only one I know you would definately have in the States is the Aitkens ones...I love them. They taste like a chocolate bar. The cho orange is yum

Debi said...

Thanks everyone! I knew that if I asked, I would get some great choices!! I will go to Walmart and Target for sure and start trying some of them.

Nikki said...

Debi...I noted that you aren't a huge fan of peanuts...so I would tell you about a peanut butter chocolate one...but I got a better one!

Its the Zone Perfect Dark Chocolate Crunch...I find them at Target....

They taste like a yummy candy bar! MMMM...They have about 190 cal and like 14 or 16 grams of protein...not too bad, but they taste like they should be SO bad for you...

I LOVED them pre-band....still on liquid...so I dont know if they taste the same...LOL.

Wish I could help chickpea, but like you - I avoid protein bars.. I don't know if Oz just has crappy ones full stop or if it's my taste buds.. but not keen on them AT ALL!!!

BanderificBeauty said...

OMG the atkins ones are good and so are the south beach.

Debi said...

Thanks guys! Some more to add to the ones to try! I will buy one of each, that way, if I hate them, I will not have wasted too much money!

Band-Babe said...

Holy Cow! Thanks for the Vegas info. You're the best.

Debi said...

Your welcome BB!! Like I said, if you would like for me to forward these e-mail offers to you, just let me know!

DawnB said...

Thanks for this post Debi - I am ready to check out some bars (protein that is - lol!)too.

Debi said...

Your welcome Dawn! I figured that it could help others as well as myself!

Dinnerland said...

I'm in the "Zone" too-- their dark chocolate or dark chocolate almond bars are great and great protein. 190 cals and 12 or 14 grams protein!!

enjoy!

Debi said...

Thanks Vanessa! Well it looks like I need to buy one of each, of the Zone, South Beach, Atkins, Luna, Twisted and Oh Yeah! bars in the flavors that I think I will like. This gives me a good start I think!!
