Energy Bars


A shameless plug...

For those into energy bars, I know a kid who's involved with this all-natural one. The magic word is caffeine so I'm going to give them a shot myself.

Re: Energy Bars


Just eat right and you don't need these. Most are bad for you, no matter what the label says.

Sorry Mark, Just my .02˘

No problem. I would grab something like this rarely, but they have their niche.

Re: Energy Bars

I keep a couple NutriGrain bars in my truck all the time to hold back the hunger pangs until I get home.

I know a lot of people who drink those every day. They also are people that I would say have very low energy despite continually drinking them.

Study, long time ago for runners and athletes, first looked at Gatorade and asked, does it work. They found yes, great during the activity. And then study wandered off and found that chocolate milk and beer were good post activities rehydrators.

Same study went into energy bars, finished to cookies etc. Found that during activity, there was an ideal sugar, protein, carbohydrate, fat ratio. Found a Fig Newton had the right combination - and at 1/4 the cost.

Try some of this.

I had their samples and really it just tastes like salty smoked chocolate.

LOL... when I was a kid, we used to try to just eat the outside of the fig newton, leaving the fruit center for last... then one day, one of my siblings asked me what I thought the "crunch" was in the fruit... not knowing any better, I looked confused and was "informed" it was crushed bugs they couldn't get out of the fruit before mixing it up...

As a kid, took me a long time and a lot of convincing to eat them again...

Now, when someone tries to point out food flaws (i.e. - hot dogs, sausage, whatever) and what's in them, I simply say well I guess I like (whatever they say)... makes life easier...
