Bodybuilding.com Protein Bar Taste Test #3

A panel of tasters gathered to help give you, the consumer, some input to help you make a decision as to which protein bars don't leave you with that chalk-like aftertaste!

There are so many different types and flavors of protein and energy bars on the market these days. Some taste good, some don't. How can you tell which ones are edible? With names like "Mocha Blast" or "Almond Rocky Trail", how is anyone supposed to know which ones are good. That is where we come in. We hiked up our pants, gritted our teeth and tortured our taste buds so you didn't have to.

We did not put this together to say that one bar is "better" than another. The whole idea of this is to give you an unbiased idea of how other people think these bars taste. You can use these opinions to aid in your decision or you can ignore them. The decision is up to you.
