General rule of thumb: If it comes in a shiny and/or colourful package, it likely isn't good for you.

Another general rule of thumb: Shop near the periphery and avoid the center aisles.

To be honest I eat a lot of the Nutrigrain Oat bars, the new ones that they brought out. I also eat a lot of the Jordans Conservation Grade Frusli bars(that means they don't use many modified ingredients and are close to being organic).

It's fine.

Doesn't matter if it's "processed". Most people couldn't define that well if you put a gun to their heads.

Doesn't matter what kind of fat or sugar, it's a damn 130 calorie snack bar, not a 1500 calorie meal or 500 calorie shake you drink every day.

Doesn't matter if it comes in a shiny wrapper. I'd rather it come in a protective wrapper than a burlap sack.


The important thing to remember, with ANY food, is where it could fit in your diet. This is a sugar source. Pure and simple. Not a bad idea pre- or post- workout. All other times a day, not a great idea. But all foods need to be taken in context. I wouldn't have five of these and call it breakfast, but I wouldn't turn up your nose at them either.

Well said. The challenge a lot of people face is accepting the fact that it is a sugar source, and not the healthy alternative it is advertised as. Granted it is much better than a lot of the other **** you find in the grocery store.

last time I checked, nutrigrain bars contained BOTH high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats.

two excellent reasons to call them CRAP!
