    Default Better Bars On sale?

    it has been almost 2 years probably since ive had one of these. (one meaning one bag at once lol) but do to insulin issues had to stop. anyway through some serious life changes i am able to enjoy these again one bar at a time lol.

    so i went to the site to find them at 10.00 per bag plus you still have free shipping!!!!! that is bad ass i ordered 3. is the 10.00 a sale? if so when does it end? if i can resist temptation to eat more than i can handle i want to stock up before the sale ends.

    my mouth is watering i hope your shipping is still fast

    Joe I am not sure off the top of my head if 10.00 is a sale. It has been that way for awhile though so there is a good chance it will continue to be that price for awhile. As for shipping, it is insanely fast. My last order literally came about 36 hours after I ordered it!

    yea i thought about that and also just ordering a single bag to try but when it costs 6.00 min to ship id rather share the savings a little since 10.00 per bag with free shipping is already cheap as hell. maybe it will help the price stay down longer.

    thanks for the responses.

    10 bucks a bag is a great price. I picked up 4 myself. There is a lot of different ways to make these bars to fit your caloric needs also. There are recipes for higher Cal, lower Cal, higher Carb, lower Carb, higher protein, etc....

    How do you fit these into your diet rick? I know you eat pretty strict so i'm just kind of curious how you balance the caloric value of these bars against your allotment for the day

    My workout days I eat around 20% over maintenance, as my diet is setup mainly for recomp. Its on those days that I eat a better protein bar. Adds an easy 400 Cal's that ups my protein and carbs, and tastes much better than some other choices. One bar each workout day is only 3-4 bars a week, so a bag lasts me about a month too!

    good deal. im going to mix up the apple tomorrow. i wonder if the butterscothch bag was just a defect and maybe it didnt have the butter scotch added. anyone else try these and not be able to smell or taste butter scotch in it?

    no big deal by the way i just covered them with a thin layer of low sugar chocolate and it was good.

    I haven't had the butterscotch yet, so I'm not real sure. But I can vouch for both sour apple and chocolate raspberry. Both are AWESOME!

    Yeah they are pretty good. The apple flavor is pretty mild and not too overbearing or anything. Do you do anything special when you make em, or to you just follow the basic instructions on the bag?

    i use my own homemade mixed nut butter with eggs and flax seed in it. instead of honey im using stevia syrup and more eggs. no water. makes them quite a bit better.

    its pretty good. its a pain in the but but way better for you (especially if you have glucose/insulin issues) than any peanut butter and honey at that amount. plus the whole food protein boost from the eggs is always good. this way i consider it a healthy meal with a little bit of sup in it.

    Nice that sounds like solid recipe! Ove alway wanted to make my own nut butters and have even looked into buying one of the machines- but they are crazy expensive. I've heard you can do it with a blender if it's powerfull enough. What are you using to make your nut butter? Are you using raw nuts?

    i commercial food processor/blender. raw nuts, eggs, flax seeds, stevia. i dont have a real recipe i just threw the shit in there to get the texture for the bars. it worked well.

    Nice! That sounds really good and I can definitely see that really boosting the taste of the bars, as well as the nutrient profile. I tried something similiar once using walnuts, brazil nuts, and pecans and it kinda worked but it was super dry and nearly fried my blender in the process, lol. I think adding some egg whites for a lil liquid like you did will make all the difference though.

    the taste was good but i dont know if it was better. just better fats, more protein, and less carbs. the eggs helped but next time i make it im going to try mac nut oil with less or no eggs. this batch was a little on the slimy side which went pretty good into the bars because as it set it became sticky and held the bars together even better , but didnt stick to our hands when we ate them.

    i think theres enough flavor in the bag to allow a bit of leeway for experimental shit to not turn out bad. every time i play with them they still taste good but usually dont taste as good as just making them how the bag says.
