Texas Tea (7 reviews)
After a day of sugar, I've got to calm down and drink some water and some unsweetened tea. Well we've got a thing or two to teach you about how we do things 'round here. Small size protein packed, doable This is what I've been looking for, a good tasting protein packed thing that's not too much too eat to where your forcing it down. I had cake for breakfast. They are moist and chewy, not tough chewy. There may be one out there, but so far these are great. Who would have thought that?

Each bar has 9 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat 1. Unfortunately for those of us who are carb-conscious each bar has 41 grams of carbs including a whopping 21 grams of various sugars. The relatively high carb and sugar content is the only drawback to these bars, though be advised that they are a limited edition holiday flavor so buy them while you can.

Of course Mikey likes just about anything with several exceptions e. As Individual tastes vary greatly, food reviews should be considered with a lot of skepticism.

As to several reviews claiming the bars are "too sweet," I disagree. They're neither too sweet nor too bland. If you like several of the other Cliff Bar flavors, chances are you'll like the Banana Nut Bread bar. Will buy again, only very occasionally. Local Banana Nut Muffins satisfy my cravings - more gooder. This particular flavor wasn't a hit with us, but not everyone has the same taste, so I'm not knocking it just because it wasn't our favorite.

This 3 star rating is more about the packaging than the flavor. The box arrived crushed, so a good portion of the bars were popped open and stale. The inner box was damaged, not the shipping box. Other things in the box were just fine, but this one was clearly crushed under or between something much bigger before it was shipped.

Disappointing, especially when these are so expensive! They might actually be Perfect! With a name like Perfect Bar you have to be a bit skeptical of the product. I have to say that I was not disappointed. This is a refrigerated whole food product. It is refrigerated to keep it fresh and extend the shelf life. There are no preservatives, artificial ingredients or anything else to keep these shelf stable for an extended period of time. They are fine to be kept at room temperature before eating but it is not recommended to store them at room temperature.

I prefer them warm- see details below. So what is in these? Organic everything, well nearly everything. Sooo good I first sampled the Perfect Bar at my local Costco. They come in a box of 3 flavors, I still find that the box at Costco is still the best value one though you don't get to choose the flavor only Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, and Cranberry Crunch.

Not so crazy about their Coconut flavors but I don't generally care for the taste of coconut anyway. My favorite so far: Their plain Peanut Butter is also very good, you can definitely taste the honey in that one. The best bar out there! These are by far our favorite bars to buy- no matter what store we go to!

They taste amazing, are so healthy for you, and are made with quality products. Our 1 year old loves them also! We have gotten many friends and family hooked as well! You can taste the difference from the first bite compared to other "nutritious" bars. They taste delicious, and sometimes that's hard to say when eating something so good for you. We keep them cold, but you don't have to. They came packaged so nicely- you can tell that time and consideration was put into their shipping.

It is so awesome to be able to buy these from Amazon. Whenever we run low I just have them shipped right to me! This company has an amazing story and we will forever remain a customer.

Excellent bars - best of bars I you haven't tried Skratch bars you will love this product. The ingredients are excellent, and none of their products cause bloating or stomach cramps like many other products.

The bars have fueled short and long rides and not only during mountain biking but also when going hiking or similar sport. The bars have a natural and excellent taste.

I enjoyed the ginger ingredient in the bars, the pistachios and chocolate are also very tasteful. I will definitely continue buying Skratch Labs products. The gels are amazing too, the powder mix are the best and overall I have no issues during or after my rides. I have used Skratch products for over 2 years when I found them by accident and I have narrowed my products to Skratch Labs. Try the product, you will like it. I would highly recommend this flavor.

Thank you Skratch for making an allergy friendly energy bar that tastes good! Not my favorite or even close I understand these type of nutrition bars are not every going to be the best tasting things you can eat, but for some reason these do not work with my taste buds at all! I would rather not even take them in my pack. I prefer most other products I have tried other than these. Probably just my personal preference.

They look small but they are dense and pack a nice amount of nutrition in them to fill you up It's hard to only eat one a day, but if you can make them last it's worth it!!

They look small but they are dense and pack a nice amount of nutrition in them to fill you up for a good while. Perfect for when I work late at the office. Wasn't my favorite of all the Bounce ball flavors but not bad. They were something different! I've had them before and love them but the box I received from Amazon was non-edible.

They were hard as rocks. As a joke my daughter and I were banging it up against the countertop and it sounded like a hammer! I bought these at Trader Joe's in the past and love them so was very disappointed at the product when I received it.

By Science in Sport. I recently stumbled upon this energy bar 5 pack that had several awesome flavors. I gave it a 5 star because As an avid crossfiter, my body needs all the extra energy It can get.

My goal always when I pick supplements is on taste, and of course the actual energy it gives me during my workout. I gave it a 5 star because I pretty much like all the flavors, and it was a great pre workout snack I could grab on my run to crossfit. Tastes very natural which is pretty important for me! Love the flavors Love the flavors! The bars themselves are nice and light on your stomach and great for before and during my exercise and rugby training.

I only scored it 4 out of 5 because I didn't like one of the flavors - banana fudge With the amount of training I do, I rely heavily on energy supplements. As a group fitness instructor, finding a quick source of energy when teaching back to back classes is really important for me. I recently tried this energy bar 5 pack with various flavors. I only scored it 4 out of 5 because I didn't like one of the flavors - banana fudge.

What I did like about these bars is it felt like I was eating real food. I ate these bars in between teaching 2 or 3 1 hour classes and they would work perfectly.

Providing enough fuel to sustain me for the next class. By Taos Mountain Energy Bar. Delicious Bars Delicious and nutritious. Not dry and very nice flavors with generous amount of nuts. Pricey considering they are not organic but probably among the best tasting and satisfying bars if you are hungry. The small hit of coffee helps too! I am on a special diet now, and these are acceptable for me to eat, so I am so glad to have something I can carry with me to eat when I need a quick snack.

I thought about giving only 4 stars, but that is only because I feel they are a bit on the expensive side. They are all tasty I got the mixed package , we have them in our car as emergency food, but finished them in no time!

The reason I gave only 4 stars is because of the steep price. Small size protein packed, doable This is what I've been looking for, a good tasting protein packed thing that's not too much too eat to where your forcing it down. The first bite taste like chalk but after word it's wonderful. If your the type of person that need flavor you probably might not like it meaning if you can't eat regular food with its natural flavor you probably won't like it.

I liked that it is a bit smaller than some protein I was pleasantly surprised by this energy "ball". I liked that it is a bit smaller than some protein bars. I also like that it is not as sweet as some. I have been eating Quest bars for awhile but this is nice as a snack rather than a meal replacement as a quick breakfast or an after school snack.

I like the crunchiness of the cacao nibs. It is a bit too bitter for my son's taste but I like them. They are a bit pricey though. My only other "con" besides the price would be that you have to check your teeth after eating one. Sometimes I get a few black specks in between. They're not too sweet, which is a big plus for me. They are soft and chewy I like the texture with crunch from the cacao nibs.

These work well as a replacement for a cookie or brownie when I want a treat and don't want a sugar overload. I take a couple in my I take a couple in my jersey for every bike race.

If you really need some energy, you can put two together with some peanut butter. These are very tasty and great to carry around while hiking and road trips. Good Ole Honey Stingers These are a go to staple for endurance sports and lately the kids have been grabbing them to include in their school lunches.

Superstarch is the exception since the carbs are released so slowly, there isn't the same insulin response as other carbs. I can take the Superstarch powder pre-ride with some exogenious keytones to really up the keto energy! I've taken Superstarch, ridden, and then tested keytones a few hours later and I'm still in keytosis which is awesome.

It isn't like any other bar on the market so don't expect It isn't like any other bar on the market so don't expect it to taste like a regular protein bar. I am a dance teacher and carry a bar with me everywhere I go. I am recovering from mold exposure, which can mess with your blood sugar big-time, so I am dealing with hypoglycemia. Crankiness, paranoia, irritability, being hyper-emotional and even an over assertive personality shift occurs.

It is so bizarre and I had no idea that low blood sugar could do that because I've never dealt with this before. As soon as I eat this bar I start feeling like myself again within minutes.

Coffee UCAN bars are delicious! I am a marathon runner and mother of two kids. After reading some reviews, complaining of the taste, I was hesitant, but decided to give it a try anyway. I must say, they're delicious! I am also pleased that these are plant based and do not contain whey.

These are better than I anticipated. Yummy I love these bars. I like to keep them on hand for days I'm not very hungry or I'm on the road. That way I don't have to skip lunch or stop for fast food. So similar to all protein bars, and loaded with bad stuff. If you're addicted to sweets, this might not be for you. But if you can get past the fact it is NOT chocolate-covered--or prefer it that way, then this is could become your go-to pick-me-up.

Read the ingredients; what's not to love? Perfect for the 3: That's why it's a staple in my desk. Best balanced and tasting bar on the market today I'm not a personal trainer, but I am a health nut, and I have a few friends who are the same way. This bar is one of the best tasting bars I've eaten. The green color worried me at first, but the flavor and nutritive qualities of this bar make it hands down the best. We visited a health store for about two hours one day to compare the ingredients on this bar versus all the others.

It is perfectly balanced, has no saturated fat only 4g of mono-unsat, and 1g of poly unsat , and also has NO hydrogenated oils. This is VERY important, and if you don't know about how harmful hydrogenated oils can be, you should definitely read more about them. These are some of the very best tasting energy bars I've ever had, and they have some of the very best ingredients I've come across so far.

I find the chocolate coated bars to be tastier than the natural because I love chocolate ; however, the natural bars are really quite good, too. These bars are soft, easy to chew, have a nice texture, and the chocolate coating is great. Here is a list of all the ingredients for the natural bars: My Husband's Favorite This bar is my husband's absolute favorite out of 10 bars that we ordered on Amazon Subscribe and Save.

The flavor is just enough of apricot to be tasty but not overpowering. This bar is hard to find in the stores and if you do, the cost is up there.

It has the protein that my hubby needs and has helped him to gain weight which has pleased the doctor! This is smooth and sweet and syrupy. Do you remember me saying that real Southern sweet tea is s'posed to be syrupy? Boy, you've got some learnin' to do before you make it down here. It's not all swamps and gators and biscuits and gravy. What'd you say, darlin'? I've got to go, boy.

M'wife made gator stew with biscuits and gravy. He goes on more little trips than anyone I know. Dude will just up and leave and I'll call him and he'll say "Oh, I'd love to get tacos but I'm in Nebraska" or "I'd love to get pizza but I'm in Albuquerque". One thing that Dan excels at is thinking of Thirsty Dudes and always bringing us stuff back.

Well on this occasion, he brought us stuff back from a store that is two miles away that carries this drink that I've never seen, Jay's never seen, and Derek's never seen.

That's strange as we typically scour stores we've been to hundreds of times. You know, just in case. So he brought us back every flavor they had and I paid him in a burrito. He wanted me to wait for him to try this, but since he's not here, I'm thirsty, and this guy was cold, I had to go in without him. He would and should be upset. It's got all the inherent bitterness you would expect from a white tea but a killer, natural strawberry flavor through and through.

It contains "strawberry flavoring" which is a bit ominous but it also contains Poteet strawberry puree although there isn't any seeds or strawberry remnants. Poteet is a city in Texas known for its strawberry festival, and dude, if this is what they come up with, I might have to schedule a trip.

This tea is wonderful. It's strong, sweet, and it tastes as natural as it says it is. Texas is known for being big, not liars. That stuff was cheap gas station swill that was passable only because it was so cheap.

This on the other hand is a high quality organic tea. This one is also actually made in Texas instead of New Jersey. You can tell from the taste that actual blueberries were used in the creation of it. The sweetness of it is also very obviously pure cane sugar. I can imagine myself slowly sipping on a bottle while I sit on a back porch of a century house somewhere in the backwoods of the south.

The bottle was also informative as I learned that Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas and it also has the highest production of blueberries out of anywhere in the U. Who would have thought that? I never expect much to be in Texas.

With the exception of Austin my experiences in that state have been less than stellar. This spells low quality. I am so down on plastic bottles. In my head they instantly make a beverage seem cheap.

Glass bottles are at the top of the beverage containment food chain. Next in line is the aluminum can. Plastic bottles are way down at the bottom. Can you imagine if the Ghostbusters would have used plastic for their containment unit? Their proton packs would have been pointless, because those flimsy things would have never held the souls of the screaming undead. You know what's an even bigger bummer than plastic bottles?

Finding out that everything I had read about Ghostbusters 3 was just internet rumors. At least it's still happening according to Mr. Ramis, but it's going to be a long wait. Another thing I don't get about this drink is that it's acai passionfruit flavored, two fruits that are notably good for you, but they chose to use HFCS for their sweetener.

A quick inspection of the ingredients shows that their is also no juice from either of those fruits in it as well. I think the Texas Tea company is trying to hoodwink customers into thinking their run of the mill gas station tea is good for them. I'm not falling for it. What I will fall for is that even though it may not be healthy, this tea actually tastes pretty decent. It has hints of the fruits it boasts about, without them actually being present.

It's a really sweet green tea with some nice flavoring. I think I would have given it a four if it were in different packaging and a different sweetener. Grand Assam 2 T. Companies Choose a company Stop whatever you are doing because finding this drink is your top priority. This is better than most drinks. Something to keep an eye out for. It's good but nothing special. Something you'd want to buy for parties.

Fairly gross but at least we could finish it.
