Just found these in the local market. They are 70% organic all natural energy bars, containing mostly oats and soy. Anyone else heard of them or use them? I'm thinking they'd make a good pre-workout snack, even though they are 200+ calories per bar. It seems as though all the protein and such would make them a good source of energy. Check them out, what do you all think?

I'm a big fan of Luna bars (Clif's counterpart for women). I love them. They give me an energy boost and satisfy my sweet tooth. I actually just had one. Clif also has the Clif Kid Z bars, which are essentially the same things at about half the calories. When I am looking not to go over my calories too much, I eat a Z bar. It's just as delicious and makes me feel the same way. I especially enjoy the Apple Cinnamon Z bars.

I eat a lot of bars. Most are too high in calories for daily use, but as the PP said, the Z bars are a good lower cal option. I also keep some cliff bars around for when I do longer (4+hours) mountain bike rides or hikes and need more of a meal out of bar. I also like the MoJo bar which has under 200 cals and has a more salty/sweet taste going on, but I like them so much I don't buy them because I will eat them when I am not even hungry!

Love, love, love 'em.

My husband is a huge cliff bar eater. He also likes the mojo bars by cliff. As mentioned, they are on the high side calorie wise. Since I am on weight watchers I prefer the z bar.(the honey graham is the best.) It's only two points and if I am having an intense chocolate craving I'll eat a chocolate brownie z bar. It's not quite a brownie but it is perfect for staying with in the diet and feeding the craving. Even our 17 year old son likes the z bar, his fave being the choc. chip.
