Vegan MoFo Day#16-Peanut Butter Product Review-a Few Energy Bars
okay,so this is a peanut butter clif builder bar.they don't sell the builder bars in canada,and so i was pretty excited to try them because even though i'm not a fan of regular clif/luna bars(i know,like the whole entire rest of the world is...w/e...)i had heard SO many good things about these and how they "tasted like a candy bar" and were "WAY better than clif bars" and blah blah blah.
so i broke down and bought one(it was $2.29!geze)and honestly,i don't see what the hype was whatsoever.
yeah,it was okay,but all clif/luna bars have that weird taste that i can't get past.yeah,there was peanut butter,and yeah there was chocolate,but there's that like protein-powder/supplement aftertaste/undertone that i can't get past or down with.
i remember the first time i ever had a clif bar at all was at camp in 2005 and we planned out snacks and they were an option,so i ate those everyday,the peanut butter(crunchy or something?)ones,and yeah,thought they were just okay.same weird oaty supplement-y taste.i told the woman who did all the meal planning this when we talked about food and she,who was super active and ate a lot and all that said "i know what you mean,i don't understand the whole 'powerbar' thing.honestly,when i'm active or workout,i think the best fuel/snack is just a good ol' pb&j.it's just as easy..."and y'know what,that's exactly how i feel,a pb&j is a lot more gratifying and satisfying.
i ended up crushing it up and putting it in a bowl of cereal,then it was nice,i guess because of the cereal,almond milk,and
peanut butter & jam & granola sammich
and i guess if you need that something 'extra',you can just make a pb&j and granola...
thanks for the idea,theresa.
now,this one,was just better.
i'm not really into lara bars either,i mean,i love all the ingredients,but would rather just eat them whole or by themselves or in a different war than mashed up,but into a bar,and stuck with an expensive price tag.
this actually tasted like a pb&j though.i mean,it was a bit dry,but with a glass of almond milk,it was yummy.i approve,and i guess,it's probably the only lara bar i'd buy again if i had to buy one.
made me really crave medjool dates,though,an old favourite.
