Raise the Bar
Whether you’re looking for a quick, muscle-building protein source following a tough gym workout or you’ve skipped lunch and need to calm a grumbling stomach and low blood sugar, a protein bar can be an easy and relatively healthy snack. But not all protein bars are built the same. Some have as many calories and as many grams of sugar as a candy bar, while others deliver less protein than a serving of low-fat Greek yogurt or are so unpalatable you may as well gnaw on wood. We scooped up a handful of protein bars from two grocery stores in Austin, Texas, and sampled each to find out if they were truly among the best-tasting protein bars or just edible.
