    Not a huge fan of the protein bars. Your protein shake is superior. I don't see any reason to eat protein bars.

    20 mile road marches. Marathons. Other things that require long intense training with little to no down time. As far as the best... I don't really know. I eat Power Bar Carb Select bars but I doubt they're the best nutritionally.

    protein shakes are better nutritionally, but people still eat protein bars because theyre easy to carry and eat when you dont have time to make a shake. also look around for homemade protein bar recipes, you can lower the sugar and add in better nutrients - and flavor it the way you want plus its much cheaper.

    I only eat them when I'm on the go and need something to fill me up real quick. Other than that I never eat them anymore after I found out how unhealthy they are.

    Very unhealthy.
    However, If you must, Labrada has some new Rock-n-Roll Bars that I believe are superior to all in taste and value.

    I tried the Detour bars. I think they taste pretty good, they're pretty low in sugar, and the have 15 grams of whey protein.
