The other day while I was out on the bike, I was really kicking myself for not making one of my mini sandwiches. (I use small Hawaiian rolls, cheese and veggies) All I had with me was the typical sweet energy bar that are so sweet. It was really the last thing I wanted in the 90 degree heat. When I got home I decided that I really needed to start researching what type of savory bars are out there right away.
The good news is that there seems to be a trend moving towards savory energy bars. Last January Kind Bars introduced a line of savory bars that even include hickory smoked sea salt and Cliff has come up with food packets like pizza. It doesn’t just stop there because there are also smaller companies that are bringing a unique blend of flavors to their line up.
Claiming to have 50% less sugar than the usual energy bars and are also vegan friendly, these bars come in 5 savory flavors: Coconut Curry. Sesame Ginger. Pizza Marinara. Rosemary. Sea Salt.
Can’t decide which one you want? They offer a variety pack with all the flavors for $22.00.
