Personally the only way i'm going to purchase protein bars is if the price is around $1 a bar. If it's any higher than this i would rather just stick w/ real food. Also if i were to use protein bars it would be preworkout, and would probably also be interested in a bar with a good amount of slow burning carbs. As far as grams of protein anything under 40 would be to low. Taste wise anything w/ chocolate, and peanut butter is great. This is probably asking a lot from you, but i'm just being honest. If i can't afford it I'm obviously not going to buy it. Good luck with everything.
