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. 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. I enjoyed eating the bars that NBTY produced through their 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. I stumbled upon The Best Bar Ever in my travels and decided to give them a try.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that these bars were made fresh before shipping out to the retailers. This in my opinion really sets them apart from any other bar company on the market. So these aren’t sitting in a distributors non air conditioned warehouse for several months before heading to a retailer near you and you decide to purchase. Not only are the product fresh, but they are made with REAL FOOD. Where most bars are created in a laboratory, these bars are made in a kitchen–where real food is made. Not only that, but the bars need to be refrigerated to maintain freshness.
Have you ever stopped to wonder how healthy something can be when it has a shelf life (key word being shelf) of over a year? Think about how many preservatives need to be in that bar to maintain freshness that long. Doesn’t sound appetizing does it? Is that really something you want to be consuming and putting into your body to fuel it? With The Best Bar Ever you need to put the bars in the fridge and in there they last 3 months. If you want them to last longer you can put them in the freezer and they will be good for up to 6 months.
The Best Bar Ever has 6 different flavors right now: original, cinnamon bun, apple pie, chocolate peanut butter, chocolate coconut, 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.
Taste: The taste is amazing. There actually wasn’t a flavor that I didn’t like. If I had to give my personal favorites though, they would be the Original, Apple Pie, Cookie Dough, and Chocolate Peanut Butter. The chocolate coconut is really good too and I don’t even like coconut. Cinnamon bun does taste similar, but I’m not a fan of cinnamon buns and never eat them so for my preference it wouldn’t be a flavor I would buy again, but the other five I will definitely continue buying.
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 that sits on a shelf in the grocery store for 12+ months (yuck). But when you bite into The Best Bar Ever you can definitely tell if 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 a 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 about the price, I’d still recommend at least trying a few different flavors.
I have some good news to button up this review as well. I liked The Best Bar Ever so much that I reached out to the company to see if there was something I could do to get you these bars at a better price and they were happy to help those of you out who wanted to give the bars a shot for yourselves.
