When you think of a protein bar, what are your first thoughts? For many years, protein bars have featured odd textures ranging from rubbery to gritty and often followed by a strong aftertaste. The rise of artificial sugars and even fibers posing as sugars has become an accepted proposition when eating your favorite protein bar. But with the summer coming up and undoubtedly many summer adventures planned, a high-energy bar that’s just as healthy as it is delicious may be exactly what you need!

Launched on to the scene in December of 2018, Battle Bars has made a name for themselves as a truly natural, unique, and extraordinarily delicious protein bar. Head to their website and you will find many outlandish and hilarious verified customer reviews like this one:

A True Spiritual Experience

“I ordered these not knowing what to expect. Just had my first MOAB bar and it was truly a spiritual experience. The texture is unique (in a great way) and the flavors are on point. There’s no funky after tastes or weird textures nor does it make you super thirsty. This will be my go-to for years to come. I’m glad I took the plunge and gave them `a shot. No regrets.”

Ok, ok. One review doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but with an average rating of 4.7/5, it appears as if Battle Bars has cracked a code we didn’t know could be cracked. But what exactly are they doing that could make this an absolute must for your summer adventures?

Hand-selected, Functional, Natural Ingredients

A thorough look at Battle Bars nutrition label will reveal all the usual staples of a good protein bar but with a few key omissions. You won’t find unnecessary ingredients you can’t pronounce or fake sugars posing as fibers. In fact, these bars aren’t even considered low sugar. It’s clear a concerted effort has been made to provide only natural ingredients and exceptional taste, even if it does mean a little more carbs and sugar than you might be used to. An added bonus is the bovine collagen and antioxidant blend in every bar, both rising stars of the healthy food world that you’ll definitely want to add to your diet. All of this means this bar will provide prolonged energy, replace deleted nutrients while you’re on your summer adventure and will be a joy to eat rather than a struggle!

One-of-a-kind Texture

A quick look at Battle Bars’ product images and you start to understand why their customers tend to leave such passionate and glowing reviews. For one, finding clear images of the actual bar and the inside is easy to find and done in high quality. Sporting an almost rice crisp texture, Battle Bars describes the inside of their bar as a “marshmallow and crisp center that offers a soft but crispy texture which is then coated in our delicious milk chocolate, peanut butter, blueberry or white chocolate coating”.
