Best "bar" for breakfast?

Powerbar? or what is the best morning breakfast bar...sometimes I just run into my office w/o breakfast...would like a tasty bar to satisfy me to lunch.

Just something that tastes good and isn't horrible for you.

  1. I really like Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Fruit and Nut (140cal, 4g fat). Kinda like a old fashioned granola bar, but not brittle. For more nutrition, Balance Bars are pretty tasty, with a lot more protein and vitamins.

    Powerbars and are bit to reconstituted for my taste.

    1. We like the Nature's Valley Peanut Butter bars in our house. These are their "original" style bars that come in the twin packs - the crunchy kind. The peanut butter gives you a little bit of a protein kick to start your day.

      1. I think I've had both of those actually.....not bad

        1. I like both of those. But my current favorite are the Lara Bars. Very few ingredients, no preservatives, good flavors and a healthy balance of fat, protein and carbs. When I have to work at clients' sites, I live off of those.

          1. Hey there!

            I really like NuGo Bars (vanilla is my personal fave). The saturated fat content is much lower than others I have encountered (such as Luna or any of the Atkins products) and they are quite tasty.
