This is not an ordinary energy bar.
- An invigorating energy different from what you’ll experience with coffee and energy drinks. It provides a rigor and clarity that lasts 2 to 6 hours without a crash.
- We do not rely on sugar to provide energy. We combine two plants from South America, Guarana and Maca, to provide a unique type of energy.
- Each bar contains 100mg of caffeine. The caffeine is extracted from the Guarana berries and we blend it with Maca powder. We do not add additives to provide a uniform taste.
- The very nature of our ingredients makes each bar unique, the taste can vary slightly. This does not alter the quality but is a sign of the natural ingredients we are sourcing.
- This is a food product and the caffeine is assimilated in your body differently than with a drink. Based on our thousands of customers' feedback, maximum effect is felt when eaten on an empty stomach.
- If you are sensitive to caffeine 1/2 a bar maybe enough for you. It may take you few trials before knowing when it is best for you to use our product.
Our secret is Guarana and Maca—two plants from South America. Guarana, long used by natives for stamina and energy while hunting, provides a quick boost of natural caffeine. And maca is scientifically proven to reduce the effects of stress while maintaining an illuminating mental and physical boost.
We use dark chocolate, guarana and very little sugar, our product is bitter by the nature of its ingredients. The bitterness does not alter the quality of the product and should not be seen as a safety concern.

Ironman & Spartan Champion
“I TYPICALLY HAVE A BETTER THAN COFFEE BAR IN THE MORNING BEFORE I WORKOUT. SOMETIMES I HAVE ONE WITH MY SIMPLE BREAKFAST EITHER WITH A FRUIT SMOOTHIE OR MULTI GRAIN TOAST WITH NUT BUTTER. I WILL HAVE ANOTHER BAR IF I NEED A “PICK ME UP” IN THE AFTERNOON, ESPECIALLY IF I HAVE A SECOND WORKOUT OR A LONG MEETING TO ATTEND. I WOULD RECOMMEND THESE BARS TO ANYONE: ATHLETES, PARENTS, AND THOSE THAT WORK LONG HOURS.”
“I LOVE TO FUEL MY TOUGHEST CLIMBS WITH BTC BARS. I ALWAYS TRY TO HAVE MINE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH TO REALLY GET ME GOING. ON EARLY COMPETITION MORNINGS I ALWAYS POUND A BANANA AND A BTC BAR ABOUT 30 MINUTES BEFORE COMPETITION TIME AND IT NEVER FAILS! ALSO, I’D BE LYING IF I SAID BTC BARS HAVE NEVER GOTTEN ME THROUGH SUPER LONG AND BORING DRIVES!"
Professional natural Bodybuilder
“I USE BTC BARS FOR SEVERAL REASONS. I HAVE ONE BEFORE I STRENGTH TRAIN IN THE MORNING. I WAKE UP EARLY TO WORKOUT, SO HAVING A BOOST OF NATURAL CAFFEINE AND A LITTLE BIT OF FOOD IN MY STOMACH, HELPS GET ME GOING. I LOVE THESE BTC BARS FOR THAT MID-DAY CRASH AND WHEN I AM CRAVING SWEETS. I CAN EAT ONE OF THESE BTC BARS AND FEEL MY ENERGY BUILD BACK UP, AS WELL AS GIVE ME MY SWEET TOOTH FIX, I NEED TO STAY ON TRACK. THESE MACRO FRIENDLY BARS ARE GREAT, MAKING IT EASY TO FIT INTO MY DIET 1-2 TIMES DAILY IF NEEDED, AS WELL AS MY CLIENT’S VERY EASILY.”
"I LOVE BTC BARS. I USUALLY HAVE THEM BEFORE A WORKOUT BUT I HAVE HAD THEM AFTER A WORKOUT TO REFUEL, OR MID AFTERNOON IN BETWEEN COACHING GROUPS AS A QUICK PICK ME UP. I USUALLY HAVE THEM AS A BAR BUT SOMETIMES, I LIKE TO TOP BY SMOOTHIE BOWLS WITH LITTLE BTC CHUNKS."
About Better Than Coffee:
Better Than Coffee was founded by Valerie, a self-proclaimed “energy drink addict” working in corporate IT. After needing at least one energy drink to make it through each day, she began searching for healthier alternatives. Three years and about 3,000 homemade bars later, she found a combination that provided lasting, natural energy without coffee’s crash or energy drinks’ artificial ingredients. Valerie then partnered with nutrition experts, scrutinizing every ingredient and turning down countless recipes to arrive at the bars we make today.

Taste: If you want to know what these things taste like... Just go chew up an Ibuprofin and swirl it around on your tongue.
Value: After the package arrived, I sat down to open what I thought to be a Matryoshka Doll... It just got smaller and smaller and smaller.. These "bars" are about the size of Halloween Hershey Bars. So IF they even tasted good, you'd be hard pressed to call it a bar... Maybe a bite is more like it.
Final Assessment: You may be reading the above scratching your head and wondering, "Why the hell did this guy give it 4 stars?"
I'll tell you why... Because I can read.
I hate coffee... I don't like the breath it gives you.. I can smell it on my coworkers from 3 feet away... It is no better than smoking as far as the smell is concerned. I do however, like caffeine. As part of my journey into being a healthier person, I'm trying my damndest to stop drinking energy drinks. So if the above fits you, these are for you. They definitely are exactly what everyone reviews them to be.. Bitter tasting "It says that on the package for gods sake". If eating something that tastes like crap gives me my jolt (Which it does very well) AND keeps me in line with my diet.. Then so be it. Because I'm committed to being healthier. Thats just me though. If you can't deal with the above.. These are not for you.
Someone said these do nothing for them... They must be addicted to aderall or coke or something because I feel pretty damn good and I was drinking a BIG GIANT MONSTER everyday.
So there you have it.. My most honest review.
All in all, they’re gross, tough as a hardback book cover, and the taste lingers. Definitely not suggested.

These tasted alright, not great, and the crunchy texture was fine for me but the "caramel" is was set it was too sticky for my liking. It was almost like chewing on coffee beans floating in a sea of toffee. I liked it enough to eat half a bar, but I wouldn't see myself ordering these again.
As I read the ingredients list, I realized these are not Paleo, nor are they Keto. :( Then I moved to the bottom of the box and realized the bar I was consuming had expired 2 months ago. :(
I like its small size and weight, I can slip a bar into a jacket pocket or anything to take it on the go without feeling burdened. It is discreet and convenient. I can carry it all day under a lot of conditions I wouldn't be able to do easily for something like coffee in a cup. Taste is more subjective but I enjoy it and find it satisfying (I got the dark chocolate and coconut). Its also surprisingly filling for its size. I'm really glad that it is based off familiar plant ingredients with no dairy. I can consume it and share it with pretty much anyone without worrying about anything.
Price is a bit steep to me personally but for now half a bar at a time is comparable to a coffee on the go I suppose. I would like to try eating a whole bar at some point. I hope to see it become more affordable in the future as their company sees success in the product and expands. I'll see how l feel in the long term but for now I am having fun and think its a great product. Give it a shot!
This one...is just awful.
I don't mean this in an insulting way, but it sort of has a vomit aftertaste.
I couldn't finish half a bar, and the bars don't even fit in the palm of your hand.
I'm sorry - I love health foods - and I dislike sugar - but I could not handle this at all.
And I love french roast. This is not french roast.
