Any plans for this?
I usually like to grab bars before a workout, but the sugar alcohols do a number on my stomach and I don't exactly like to be swimming in rancid farts while I deadlift.

IMO the 3g net impact carbs are what make Novus bars unique and imo the best protein bar on the market for cutting. If you like carbs before you workout results is good or if you prefer bar form cliff bars are decent.

Well yeah I don't suggest changing the bar itself, but I meant another alternative. Cliff bars are tasty but they don't pack the protein that a novus bar does.
If I could get 36g of protein and some carbs for energy out of a protein bar I would be a happy man.

The sugar alcohols in Novus bars will not upset your stomach if consumed in reasonable moderation. Try one. I'll refund your money if it does.

You may also build a tolerance to them. I did and can eat 5 or 6 of them whereas one used to churn my stomach pretty good.

You could always mix some Nitrean with oatmeal and bake it on a flat tray then cut it into squares and make your own complex carb / protein bars...
