View Full Version : Gatorade Energy Bars

Are the Gatorade Energy bars worth having before or after a workout? I'm pretty rushed at times and sometimes I don't really get a chance to get home and eat before working out, so I figured it would be a good idea to find something I can eat that doesn't have to be prepared..

I've never tried them, so I don't know how they compare to Powerbar/Clif Bar/MetRx bars.

Their website didn't have a lotta info about it, other than 7g protein. I'll pick some up at the store and try them out though.

I tried Powerbars before and they were the most awful thing that I have ever tried to eat.

I eat the Protien MRPs but I was eating this for carbs.

Also, are these Cliff Bar/MetRX bars good & better than powerbars tastewise? Gatorade may have put a bit too much sugar into it, I dunno...

If you're going for taste, go with Detour. It's the best tasting barnone.

Well, as long as its barable I look for nutrition. Powerbars really weren't.

I like Nitrotech Bars, Labrada Carb Watchers, and I haven't yet tried the elusive Detour Bar:) Everywhere they are sold out. Guess I should order some online. You can get the small versions of the Labrada bars at Wal-Mart now for like $1.30.

I would just check out the sugar content and also what type of protein that each bar contains.
