The 10 Best-Tasting Protein Bars

Don't disappoint your taste buds or fail your muscles with a chalky, underpowered protein bar. Check out this list of the top 10 best-tasting, muscle-fueling bars on the market!

This just in: New studies suggest that "being hangry" is a real emotional state that has caused many well-meaning athletes, dieters, muscle builders, and other conscientious eaters to make ill-advised nutritional decisions. What is being hangry, you ask?

Hangry adj. Having feelings of rage, frustration, and mild insanity because you are hungry and need some food, stat. From "hanger," a combination of hunger and anger.

Sentence: "Yo, I'm so hangry that I am about to punch you in the face if food is not in my mouth within five seconds!"

If you've ever been struck by a furious need to feed without a readily available source of clean fuel, you know how damaging "hanger" can be. How do you fight it? With a delicious on-the-go protein source, of course!

While you could cart canned tuna around in your pockets, we suggest you feed your grumbling tummy, satisfy your needy muscles, and quell those hangry feelings before they start with a delicious, nutrient-packed protein bar. Of course, we're not talking about old-school, chalky, flavorless protein bars. We're talking about picking one of the 10 tastiest bars available.

Check out the list below to find the most flavorful protein bars on the market, as rated by you and the Bodybuilding.com community!

"Added this bar to my last order just to see how it tasted, and wow, it tastes brilliant."

Gnreign

"It's not chalky or too chewy as other bars are. Very good taste with low carbs. Only complaint is the sugar alcohols, which tend to give me some gas and bloating, but I've learnt to deal with it."
