While it shouldn’t become an everyday habit, I can admit the convenience of a snack bar of some sort. When traveling, it’s definitely more convenient that trying to bring proper cooling for meat and when picked wisely, are a much better option than soybean oil laden almonds from a gas station. For the person trying to adhere to a Good Food diet, the choices are normally pretty slim — LaraBar or perhaps a OhMyBar. Unfortunately, the latter is best kept in the freezer and the former is severely lacking in protein.
On Whole9’s Twitter I saw they had tried out a new bar on the market called RxBar and were raving about how good they tasted. I shot RxBar an email and they were kind enough to provide me a sampler pack for today’s review. Imagine if you could add protein to a LaraBar and you pretty much describe the RxBar. I really liked that they use egg white protein that is free from any artificial sweeteners. They also use a nice mix of fruit, including figs along with the usual dates you may be used to. After having tried all three flavors, I found them all to be very tasty. The blueberry is a little on the sweet side, while the coffee cacao is the least sweet. The coconut cacao sits somewhere in the middle.
After raving about them to Sean and Ruth, they decided to start carrying them in the Intrepid store. We currently have all three flavors in stock for $3 each. Grab one for the road and see what you think!
I also recently talked about an alternative to the usual snack bars in the form of pemmican. For those curious to give it a try, I was informed that the Intrepid Store will soon have pemmican bars for sale as well.
