do you eat protein/fiber/nutrition bars?

Options
I tend to grab one some days when I'm hungry mid-afternoon. I like Gnu bars for fiber and Luna bars for protein. Any other favorites out there?

    I buy a variety. Pure Protein as a protein bar. I really like the new Kind Strong bars. They are yummy. I usually have ClifBars on hand as well as Zone Perfect Nutrition bars.

    I'm addicted to chocolate brownie quest bars. Microwaved for 8 seconds makes them taste even better.

    I have a protein bar of some kind at my desk most afternoons. I'm cheap, so I'll get whatever I can on sale or w/ coupon. Pure Protein bars, Cliff bars, Luna bars, and Zone Perfect bars are probably my favorites. But I'll also grab Met RX bars, Odwalla bars, Nature Valley protein bars, or store brand/Aldi meal bars to supplement if they're cheaper.

    I eat the Quest ones for breakfast, microwaved. For 200 calories they have great macros for me and we can keep several flavours in the house unlike many other brands (fiance with a severe nut allergy means a lot of brands are off-limits.)

    Love Quest bars, especially the Cookies 'n Cream and the White Chocolate Raspberry. I usually have them either for a light breakfast or as a snack.

    I don't like the calorie-heavy bars so I look for the lower calorie ones. I cut them in half and take half at a sitting, which seems to be just about right. My favourites are Canadian,

    I used to eat Quest bars once in a while. Generally speaking, bars are overpriced and don't taste that good.

    I read an article online that rated Kind bars at the top so I ordered a sample off ebay. Once I find a bar I like I order by the box from Amazon which is why I've ended up with a good supply of a few kinds...

    I'm cheap so I'll buy whatever is on sale or I have coupons for. In fact I'm munching on a Luna bar right now

    Depends on what you want. I used to always want protein, so the Kind bars wouldn't have worked, but I am experimenting with upping my carbs so tried this GoMacro bar that wasn't bad, and the Kind bar would probably be a similar macro breakdown. (Of course, so are nuts and dried cherries, I think.)

    Anyway, I like them as an occasional thing--Quest cookie dough and Think Thin (the kind I've seen has more calories and a lot more protein than the listing above) are both tasty for sweet bars, IMO (not everyone's obviously), and I used to like the Zone bars and some others (I should experiment more). They are an easily portable snack and I can just keep them in my office drawer.

    Quest cookie dough/cookies and creme are my absolute favourite as an afternoon snack!

    I only eat food in bar form. When you concentrate food, you unleash its awesome power I'm told.

    Neither food nor candy, have to be meal replacements then.

    I love Quest bars. I'm a big fan of the chocolate flavored ones (chocolate brownie, double chocolate chunk)
