Anyone know why these have been discontinued in several online stores? Is there something wrong with them, are they bad, or just not selling?

They still have them on ABB's website. Maybe a lot of people weren't buying them.

DPS sells them for 22.95 for a 24/box.

Thanks Reel. I just tried the chocolate ones, man are they tasty!!! In Mens Health this month, one of their cover models talks about what he eats and then answers questions. One question is about what he eats at the movies and he says he takes a packet of these, ABB steel bar rivets, and water. I decided to try them and bought a pack at GNC, man are they tasty. What do people think in reference to ingredients and nutritional facts? Here they are:

wheat prot. isn't a complete protein, and seeing how its the first ing. it prob. means that the majority of the prot. is wheat. They look o.k. i guess for an occasional thing but that seems like a lot of sugar. They would prolly be ok for PWO but if you do a PWO spike then the sugar in there isn't really gunna help you and they have a good bit of sat. fat. It's looks like a malted milk ball with a high protein core.

Meh, stuff like ths is way overpriced. Seriously, if you're going to the movies just buy a big ass soda there and some of those "jujubees" i hear so much about. Lol.

Or just buy some organic brunch bars (those oat-y things that taste yummy.)
