Definitely one of the best tasting protein bars available...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Plain and simple, these Builder's Bars are one of the best tasting protein bars you can get. They are crispy and chewy at the same time and they aren't super sweet like a candy bar. And at 2.4 ounces a piece they are large enough and filling enough to be a meal replacement.
And the one thing that I really like is that when I read the ingredients, I actually know what the stuff is! Nothing weird or unnatural, just real ingredients!
Out of the four flavors available (Chocolate Mint, Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Cookies `n Cream) I prefer the Chocolate Mint and Peanut Butter, mainly because they taste even less like a protein bar. I'm not saying the plain Chocolate and Cookies 'n Cream are bad tasting, just that I prefer the taste of the Chocolate Mint and Peanut Butter ones (they are all really tasty).
These are just awesome, 100% natural, high protein, real ingredients, and they taste great! I just love them!
A bit of product info:
Vanilla Almond: 39% organic ingredients
Chocolate Mint: 32% organic ingredients
Chocolate: 33% organic ingredients
Cookies `n Cream: 35% organic ingredients
Peanut Butter: 35% organic ingredients
Do not buy these expired (like on eBay or in-store)! Since these bars do not contain any preservatives they can loose their freshness and vitamin potency quickly and can develop a simple bread mold. It is recommended that they be eaten within a month of their sell by date (they are guaranteed to be fresh one month passed the sell by date printed on the wrapper).
EDIT: I just bought myself a couple of boxes of the of the new Vanilla Almond flavor and oh my they are mighty tasty. Sometimes you just don't want a chocolate protein bar and these fit the bill perfectly! And just like the other Builder Bars they are not super sweet, just a perfect balance. That and they contain more organic ingredients then the other Builder Bars (39%).
If chocolate is not your pleasure try the Vanilla Almond bars, you will not be disappointed!

The Vanilla Almond are repulsively sweet and have no almond flavor at all. They do have a sickeningly sweet vanilla-like flavor, but it's totally artificial. Disgusting. Stick with Chocolate mint.
