After more than fifteen years as a fitness freak, I’ve come to realize that not all protein bars are made equal.
But how do you know which are the best protein bars?
There are literally hundreds of brands on the market, e.g. Kellogg’s, thinkThin,Detour, Premier or Clif Bar Builder’s – all with their own take on what a protein bar should be. It’s easy to get sidetracked by catchy taglines and clever marketing campaigns.
I’ve made this article specifically for those, like me, who want more out of their protein bar. A good protein bar is more than just the nutritional facts on the back of the wrapper.
Qualities like taste, price, performance and quality all matter, and they’re all part of gauging the best protein bars from the mediocre ones.
