The only catch (besides having to get up at 4am!) was sending food for them to eat that would be easy. Lucky for me, I'd just been sent a couple boxes of some new PROBAR flavors to try out.
Last year we tried their Fruition bars (now called Fuel) and seriously loved them so I was curious to try a different line.
Let me say right up front, I definitely have strong preferences so anything I didn't like you might, but overall I thought they were pretty good. Worth buying, especially for trips where you need pre-packaged food.
We tried both the PROBAR Meal and the PROBAR Core. They are two separate products so I'll give you a short list of the pros and cons of each.
My favorite was definitely the PROBAR Meal. When something is touted as a meal, most times I come away thinking it was barely an appetizer. Not so with these. At 3oz each they feel heavy and with 10g of protein they last longer than a granola bar.
I can read all the ingredients on the label!
Can't buy them locally
Price - $3 per bar means they aren't for everyday snacks (see below for a discount code!)
The other PROBAR we tried was the Core and while I wanted to like them... I just didn't. I think the main reason was after eating a couple all the flavors just started to taste the same, like the soy that was the main ingredient. My husband really liked these though, so different tastes for different people.
Chocolate covered protein bar: 20g
All natural ingredients
First ingredient is soy (personally I try to stay away from too much soy)
Price - still almost $3 per bar

*For my gluten free friends. The label is misleading as it does state that it was produced on equipment that processes wheat, however they are certified and it was checked with the quality assurance manager that all equipment is 3rd party certified as gluten free before production of these bars begins.
