    I glanced through the other thread and it didn't tell me much


    what are some good protein bars for snacks?

    Currently I eat a good breakfast then snack about every hour till lunch then between lunch and dinner (towards the end of work) I drink a protein shake.
    Right now my snack is usually a granola bar. Being that my job is pretty much a non stop work out I figure I should increase my protein intake even more


    So what would you recommend and where are the deals at? Cheaper the better, I don't care about taste I just don't want soy protein

    yeah I love them. Low sugar high protein is perfect. make sure to get the Chewy Chocolate Chip. The other ones aren't good at all.

    I bought the peanut butter chocolate yesterday on my way to work, then I forgot about them in my car so I ate a melted one on my way to a road call. they tasted about how I expected, I wouldn't say they are very tasty, but for 20 grams of protein and hardly any sugar thats what I would expect, I just wish they were a little cheaper

    I eat met-rx bars when snowboarding in the winter.

    they're not for snacks though, as they're meal replacements

    Best tasting are the Detour brand. So good, and about 40 g of protein per bar, but taste awesome.

    first box i bought was peanut butter chocolate, that combo is never bad. Didn't like them. The Chewy Chocolate Chip are actually pretty decent. Give them a shot.

    I just look for whatever ones I can find with whey for a dollar or less, usually can find them at target or walmart.
