    My absolute favorite is Met-Rx Big 100 Colossal Peanut Butter Pretzel (30g protein). You can get them from your local Wal-Mart or http://www.walmart.com/ip/Big-100-Colossal-Value-Pack-Peanut-Butter-Pretzel-Meal-Replacement-Bar/14648472. Beware - this bar is highly addictive.

    I make these:

    GRUNT BARS

    1 cup honey
    0.5 cup corn syrup
    1.5 cup brown sugar
    1 cup 100% peanuts peanut butter
    6 cups Special K cereal ( I use low fat granola sometimes )
    0.5 cup shredded coconut
    4 scoops vanilla whey protein isolate

    bring honey,corn syrup and brown sugar to boil, stir in peanut butter then add the rest.....pour mixture onto cookie sheet and score into bar-sized shapes....let cool..eat.

    I've been around here too long.

    When I read protein bars, I immediately thought of the glory holes at Charley's back room.

    saw some guys in porn try this, the peanut oatmeal bar is a bit cardboardish, but i would try this one with caramel for a touch of sweetness

    They're better for you than a Snickers but candy's still candy! So they'd all taste good to me.

    So true. Just because they sprinkle some protein on top of twice as much sugar still = garbage.

    Quest is the best tasting & nutrition profile IMHO, but you really need to try the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor. It's amazing.

    Ugh! None of them. I have yet to find a protein bar that isn't loaded with whey and some artificial sweetener. They all give me some serious bloat and subsequent gas, just one more reason why I won't get laid.icon_razz.gif

    I just eat regular, natural sources of protein.

    This may sound weird. But protein bars started tasting gross ever since they stopped using gelatin. Who knew animal cartilage was so tasty. icon_neutral.gif

    There is a good protein bar made by Elisabeth hesselback and her husband. Great for anyone that can't eat gluten!

    Atkins bars taste the best to me. High in protein and fiber. Low on sugar and carbs. Variety of flavors most of which are great.

    Quest bars are the best!!! Just finishing a cinnamon roll bar:
    170 calories; 6 gms fat, 24 gms carbs ; 17 gms of fiber; and 20 gms protein. Tastes fantastic too!!

    I've always wondered if Protein Bars were good nutrition or just glorified Candy Bars.

    I am so flattered! I have never been called best tasting before. icon_wink.gif


    I actually eat Pure Protein brand bars. They are the best that are readily available to me that are not super expensive.

    Here, here. Yes, Quest bars are the most healthy bars out there. Other bars are basically candy bars with lots of protein. Quest is high in protein and the LOWEST in carbs and sugars.
