Is The Best Bar Ever Truly THE BEST BAR EVER?
As many of you know, I worked for MET-Rx for the better part of a decade. MET-Rx has a TON of different protein bars on the market. Everything from protein bars to meal replacements. In fact, it’s not just MET-Rx. The brand itself is owned by NBTY who also owns bar companies like Pure Protein and Balance Bar which I’m sure you have heard of or seen at the grocery store or convenience store. I enjoyed eating the bars that NBTY produced through their various brands and never really had a reason to change to anything else — that is until I left the company. After my departure to build my own business (Weik Fitness, LLC), I went out in search for something new; something fresh and exciting that wasn’t like all the other bars out on the market currently. I stumbled upon The Best Bar Ever in my travels and decided to give them a try.
What makes them different?
I was pleasantly surprised to find that these bars were made with REAL FOOD ingredients. This in my opinion really sets them apart from any other bar company on the market, especially in the sports nutrition space. Surprisingly enough, these bars once needed to be stored in the refrigerator due to their ingredients, but now do not thanks to some changes to the profile. Many changes have taken place with The Best Bar Ever and most notably is that their bars had the water activity lowered in them to allow the bars to be shelf stable. To many, that was music to their ears as they didn’t want to take up space in their refrigerator for several boxes of bars.
While being shelf stable, these bars have zero preservatives as well as zero artificial colors or flavors. Think about how many preservatives are in all of the other bars on the market. Doesn’t sound appetizing does it? Is that really something you want to be consuming and putting into your body to fuel it?
The Best Bar Ever has 3 different flavors right now: chocolate peanut butter, peanut butter crunch, and cookie dough. I cannot recommend these bars enough. They can be used to help you reach your macros for the day, fit in as a snack between meals, or can even be used as a “treat” which is what I use them for. They live up to the name “The Best Bar Ever” for sure.
Putting The Best Bar Ever to the test
Taste: The taste is amazing. There actually wasn’t a flavor that I didn’t like. If I had to give my personal favorite though, they would be the Peanut Butter Crunch. The cookie dough is really good too. But, in all honesty, you can’t go wrong with any of the flavors.
Texture: I wasn’t sure what to expect before trying these bars. Any bars on the market that have oats, nuts, and fruit in them tend to be on the hard/crunchy side similar to a Nature Valley bar. But when you bite into The Best Bar Ever you can definitely tell you’re eating a nut or oat, but the overall texture is very balanced where it’s soft with the subtle crunch of a particular nut. Definitely an easy bar to eat and it actually fills you up.
Profile: I’m a fan of nutritional bars. I like to use them as a treat at night or during the day as a snack between meals. The profile is one of the cleanest I’ve ever seen which definitely appeals to what I’m looking for in a nutritional bar. But it doesn’t stop there, they also use whey protein isolate in their bars to give them an added boost of protein. This is extremely important to me as I won’t eat a nutritional bar that has low amounts of protein in it.
Overall: Those of you who know me and know my work in the industry are well aware that I speak my mind and give honest reviews whether the review is good or bad. These bars are hands down the best bar ever. I had high expectations of this bar based off of the name and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Would I recommend these bars? DEFINITELY. Even if you’re on the fence, I’d still recommend at least trying one flavor.
