The series of bars are intended as meal replacements; however, half of one is great as a post-workout, or mid-ride, snack.
The plastic packaging can be a little tough to get into (it stretches), but if you cut a small slit on one side of the top edge (before the seal), you should be able to tear it open quite easily whenever you’re ready to enjoy the bar.
It is a great high-protein, calcium-rich meal when crumbled over/into yogurt (but not greek yogurt – thick yogurt/dense granola isn’t the best combo-trust me on this).
Kids love these bars because they’re so delicious.
The nut based bars are good for up to 6 months, the seed bars are good for 3. Each bar is labeled with a best by date. Since they are already individually wrapped for you, you can leave them in a cupboard and they’ll be just fine.
The bars have the ability to be frozen and thawed, but you can expect a slight decline in quality. If you really want to freeze them, it’s best to put them all in a resealable plastic bag (so they’re basically double-wrapped).
These bars have lots of fiber. LOTS. A friend of the Phantom who had surgery on her midsection and couldn’t “go” regularly was introduced to these bars. After just one, she “went”…
Do you have an emergency kit in your car? Does it contain any food? They’re a tasty alternative to MREs. **stability only recorded for room temperature**
