The Why: This is a really great idea. You get to build your own energy bar, pick the base, all the ingredients, and you get your very own personalized bar. The company is innovative and smart. We ordered a bar with almond butter, a few nuts, raisins, and cherries. The bar was only 170 calories, which you can control also - and it was delicious. We can't say enough about this fabulous company.
The Health Bonus: All natural ingredients that you choose!!
What We Liked Best: The possibilities are endless, and they guarantee the taste.
What We Liked Least: There are almost too many choices, and it's a bit pricey.
What It Replaces: Power Bar, Cliff Bars, etc.. Basically, all those energy bars with loads of ingredients that you don't need or want.
The Price: 12 regular bars for $40 ($3.33/bar) +$7.99 for shipping and handling
Other Offerings: If you have trouble choosing you can go to their "Popular Bars:" Honey Cashew, Great Date with Chocolate, Breakfast Bar.
