    I'm just messing with you. You're correct. I eat lots of veggies and fruit but I have to have dairy products.

    I did the Vegan thing for about a year after being a vegetarian for a few year prior.

    I've recently discovered Quest bars. I like the cookies & cream a ton.
    I'm a sucka for this ...

    I used to be a big fan of Clif bars. I eat them for breakfast often when not on the trail. Most flavors were Ok but I basically ate them when I was in a hurry to get to work and had no time for a proper breakfast. they keep me from stopping for a biscuit. I digress.... I bought the Aldi version of the Clif protein bars and absolutely love them. They are, IMO, better than the name brand. Chocolate Chip are good but the Peanut butter are awesome. They are also a little cheaper as in less than $1 each. texture and size are identical. Flavor = more better.

    On a Side note, my wife follows the Whole30 food plan. She eats RX bars. They are expensive and although the flavor is fine, they are hard to eat, for me. She likes them. Check them out of you are health conscious at all.

    I dislike the genre but Larabars are among the least offensive.

    Cliff bar mint chocolate its tasty
    Hiking the AT is “pointless.” What life is not “pointless”? Is it not pointless to work paycheck to paycheck just to conform?.....I want to make my life less ordinary. AWOL

    +1 on the Kind bars. Actual recognizable nuts, instead of a few ground nuts mixed in with fillers. I had shipped myself a few food packages, and the Cliff bars went straight into hiker boxes. The lesson learned for me was not to stock up on a bunch of any single food before the hike, because after your tenth one, you may absolutely hate it.

    Might consider NOT seeking a nutritional bar with a super high protein content as that will likely take you into muscle building or weight lifting type selections. These can often taste like cardboard or more like candy bars some with high sugar content and ingredients that you might have to consult a chemistry textbook to pronounce and understand the consequences of consuming.

    Easy solution to consider. Get a decent nutritional bar that isn't a candy bar or high sugar content bar. Dip it in a high content nut butter. Might taste better too.

Not like cardboard at all. Cookies and cream and vanilla almond crunch are my favorites. They aren't cheap, though. Typically around $25-$30 for a box of 12. I get them for $23 as a member. Hope this helps.
    Ditto for Quest! Find them on Amazon!

    Another vote for Larabars. They aren't true protein bars I don't think. They seem to hit the calories per oz ratio pretty well though, have decent ingredients I can pronounce and often go on sale for $1 per bar. The cherry chocolate ones are my favorite. They can be made at home pretty easily too.

    I don't eat any commercially made "protein bars" or anything of the sort. I used to like power bars though they were brutal when they got too cold. I did used to buy the Builders Bars for my son as they contain 20g of protein.
