  3. I use a rectangular glass brownie pan and put wax paper on the bottom, I think it's 7x11 or something like that. My wife would probably know better, I just grab a pan and cut it into 12 pieces (as equal as I can)

    I am always surprised how fast the bars go... I can have those 12 bars ALL gone in two days... and then I realize I just obliterated my projected carb intake BIG TIME.

    Wow, I'm the opposite. One batch has lasted me a few weeks. I use it more as a between meal snack, between lunch and dinner. I rotate between bars and other whole foods.

  6. Haha ya Outstanding mine can go pretty fast sometimes too.

  7. Luckily a bag of 12 bars will last me 4 weeks right now. I have one each weight training day and that's 3 times a week. My cardio and rest days I have low Cal's so I don't eat them then...as hard is it is not to!!

  8. It's so hard to let those delicious bricks of protein sit in the fridge all cold and yummy, pieces of fruit wedged in between the honey and peanut butter laden morsels!

  10. I wonder if you could switch the honey to stevia or truevia and keep it's taste.

    edit: while keeping the same price!

    I've been using Truvia for a very long time, it's my favorite by FAR. I don't think this would work though, as Honey isn't being employed merely for it's sweetening property, but to hold the ingredients together. Even the honey 'substitutes' have tons of sugar alcohols, which are just as bad or perhaps even worse than regular honey in my opinion. I have not been able to find a viable replacement thus far to keep the carbohydrate count and glucose impact down, but perhaps something from Walden Farms would suffice, I doubt it though as their consistency is slightly thicker than water.

    Anyway, I won't be able to have any Better Protein Bars for a few months, since I'm on my prep for the next few months.

    yeah, I normally use 2/3's the honey and they always fall apart. I dont mind, keep them in a bag anyways, better bars are powerchews are the two best snacks at work.

    Pretty sure my buddy who sits next to me much's the chews a lot too. Seem to be disappearing faster than i eat them

    Walden farms makes a lot of low or zero calorie options that I'm sure would be a good idea to try out. I know their zero Cal maple syrup is awesome. Whenever I need my bars to be lower Cal, that is probably the route I will try out.

    The maple syrup is the only good thing they make....everything else tastes like $hit so I wouldn't use anything else besides that. Just a heads up if you haven't tried anything else in there line

    I like some of their salad dressings, jellies, and dips. I bought their BBQ Sauce to try out too.

    Some of their stuff is nasty indeed. Just got to try some of them out to see what you can tolerate for 0 calories on a cut!

    The Maple Syrup is by far the best though, I just bought a case!

    I hear you on that, they have some good options that become attractive as an athlete gets deeper and deeper into contest prep, haha. However like I mention above in the post you quoted, their product consistency is water thin, yucky.

  17. Might have to look up their syrup because I love the Better Bars but I gain weight by looking at food. So it makes it tough to eat them knowing how many calories I am ingesting. Helps appeal to the people who are cutting and still love the Better Bars.

    I believe I'm going to try that with a half batch on my next bag. Get some Walden farms zero Cal maple syrup and see how it turns out. If it sucks then I know not to do it again and I only mess up half a bag...lol

  23. Definitely great for a bulk.. No more drinking gainer shakes. Just eat a few of these

    I also like them for breakfast with some oatmeal & whey for a pre workout meal.

    Instead of adding in PB, oats, and carbs to make a gainer shake you can get it in a great tasting better protein bar!!

    Ya and there so light. Doesn't fill me up and bloat me up at all so it's perfect for pre workout

    This is something I never directly thought of, using them exclusively for a bulk and replacing shakes with the bars - I would go for the Better Protein Bars EVERY time!
