Texas Tea (7 reviews)
This is the first time I have ever said this about a soda, but I think it could do with a little bit more sugar. That's it and that's all, now and f'ever. It's an indigenous thing. Needless to say, it was an awesome cake, but not for breakfast. The gels are amazing too, the powder mix are the best and overall I have no issues during or after my rides. Something to keep an eye out for. As Individual tastes vary greatly, food reviews should be considered with a lot of skepticism.

Hotlips (6 reviews)

Whenever we run low I just have them shipped right to me! This company has an amazing story and we will forever remain a customer. Excellent bars - best of bars I you haven't tried Skratch bars you will love this product. The ingredients are excellent, and none of their products cause bloating or stomach cramps like many other products. The bars have fueled short and long rides and not only during mountain biking but also when going hiking or similar sport. The bars have a natural and excellent taste.

I enjoyed the ginger ingredient in the bars, the pistachios and chocolate are also very tasteful. I will definitely continue buying Skratch Labs products. The gels are amazing too, the powder mix are the best and overall I have no issues during or after my rides. I have used Skratch products for over 2 years when I found them by accident and I have narrowed my products to Skratch Labs. Try the product, you will like it. I would highly recommend this flavor. Thank you Skratch for making an allergy friendly energy bar that tastes good!

Not my favorite or even close I understand these type of nutrition bars are not every going to be the best tasting things you can eat, but for some reason these do not work with my taste buds at all! I would rather not even take them in my pack. I prefer most other products I have tried other than these. Probably just my personal preference. They look small but they are dense and pack a nice amount of nutrition in them to fill you up It's hard to only eat one a day, but if you can make them last it's worth it!!

They look small but they are dense and pack a nice amount of nutrition in them to fill you up for a good while. Perfect for when I work late at the office. Wasn't my favorite of all the Bounce ball flavors but not bad. They were something different! I've had them before and love them but the box I received from Amazon was non-edible. They were hard as rocks. As a joke my daughter and I were banging it up against the countertop and it sounded like a hammer!

I bought these at Trader Joe's in the past and love them so was very disappointed at the product when I received it. By Science in Sport. I recently stumbled upon this energy bar 5 pack that had several awesome flavors. I gave it a 5 star because As an avid crossfiter, my body needs all the extra energy It can get.

My goal always when I pick supplements is on taste, and of course the actual energy it gives me during my workout. I gave it a 5 star because I pretty much like all the flavors, and it was a great pre workout snack I could grab on my run to crossfit. Tastes very natural which is pretty important for me! Love the flavors Love the flavors! The bars themselves are nice and light on your stomach and great for before and during my exercise and rugby training.

I only scored it 4 out of 5 because I didn't like one of the flavors - banana fudge With the amount of training I do, I rely heavily on energy supplements. As a group fitness instructor, finding a quick source of energy when teaching back to back classes is really important for me. I recently tried this energy bar 5 pack with various flavors. I only scored it 4 out of 5 because I didn't like one of the flavors - banana fudge. What I did like about these bars is it felt like I was eating real food.

I ate these bars in between teaching 2 or 3 1 hour classes and they would work perfectly. Providing enough fuel to sustain me for the next class. By Taos Mountain Energy Bar. Delicious Bars Delicious and nutritious. Not dry and very nice flavors with generous amount of nuts. Pricey considering they are not organic but probably among the best tasting and satisfying bars if you are hungry. The small hit of coffee helps too! I am on a special diet now, and these are acceptable for me to eat, so I am so glad to have something I can carry with me to eat when I need a quick snack.

I thought about giving only 4 stars, but that is only because I feel they are a bit on the expensive side. They are all tasty I got the mixed package , we have them in our car as emergency food, but finished them in no time!

The reason I gave only 4 stars is because of the steep price. Small size protein packed, doable This is what I've been looking for, a good tasting protein packed thing that's not too much too eat to where your forcing it down. The first bite taste like chalk but after word it's wonderful. If your the type of person that need flavor you probably might not like it meaning if you can't eat regular food with its natural flavor you probably won't like it.

I liked that it is a bit smaller than some protein I was pleasantly surprised by this energy "ball". I liked that it is a bit smaller than some protein bars. I also like that it is not as sweet as some.

I have been eating Quest bars for awhile but this is nice as a snack rather than a meal replacement as a quick breakfast or an after school snack. I like the crunchiness of the cacao nibs. It is a bit too bitter for my son's taste but I like them. They are a bit pricey though. My only other "con" besides the price would be that you have to check your teeth after eating one.

Sometimes I get a few black specks in between. They're not too sweet, which is a big plus for me. They are soft and chewy I like the texture with crunch from the cacao nibs.

These work well as a replacement for a cookie or brownie when I want a treat and don't want a sugar overload. I take a couple in my I take a couple in my jersey for every bike race.

If you really need some energy, you can put two together with some peanut butter. These are very tasty and great to carry around while hiking and road trips. Good Ole Honey Stingers These are a go to staple for endurance sports and lately the kids have been grabbing them to include in their school lunches.

Superstarch is the exception since the carbs are released so slowly, there isn't the same insulin response as other carbs. I can take the Superstarch powder pre-ride with some exogenious keytones to really up the keto energy!

I've taken Superstarch, ridden, and then tested keytones a few hours later and I'm still in keytosis which is awesome. It isn't like any other bar on the market so don't expect It isn't like any other bar on the market so don't expect it to taste like a regular protein bar. I am a dance teacher and carry a bar with me everywhere I go. I am recovering from mold exposure, which can mess with your blood sugar big-time, so I am dealing with hypoglycemia.

Crankiness, paranoia, irritability, being hyper-emotional and even an over assertive personality shift occurs. It is so bizarre and I had no idea that low blood sugar could do that because I've never dealt with this before.

As soon as I eat this bar I start feeling like myself again within minutes. Coffee UCAN bars are delicious! I am a marathon runner and mother of two kids. After reading some reviews, complaining of the taste, I was hesitant, but decided to give it a try anyway. I must say, they're delicious! I am also pleased that these are plant based and do not contain whey. These are better than I anticipated. Yummy I love these bars. I like to keep them on hand for days I'm not very hungry or I'm on the road.

That way I don't have to skip lunch or stop for fast food. So similar to all protein bars, and loaded with bad stuff. If you're addicted to sweets, this might not be for you. But if you can get past the fact it is NOT chocolate-covered--or prefer it that way, then this is could become your go-to pick-me-up.

Read the ingredients; what's not to love? Perfect for the 3: That's why it's a staple in my desk. Best balanced and tasting bar on the market today I'm not a personal trainer, but I am a health nut, and I have a few friends who are the same way. This bar is one of the best tasting bars I've eaten. The green color worried me at first, but the flavor and nutritive qualities of this bar make it hands down the best.

We visited a health store for about two hours one day to compare the ingredients on this bar versus all the others. What's that you got there, boy? That better be a bottle that used to have paint or some sort of gas-o-line in it or I ain't tasting' it. Alright, give her here, I'll take a swig. Swill is what it is. It's downright syrupy, if you ask me. City boy, number five is respect your elders so don't you forget it. Real Southern sweet tea is smooth and sweet. This is smooth and sweet and syrupy.

Do you remember me saying that real Southern sweet tea is s'posed to be syrupy? Boy, you've got some learnin' to do before you make it down here. It's not all swamps and gators and biscuits and gravy. What'd you say, darlin'? I've got to go, boy. M'wife made gator stew with biscuits and gravy. He goes on more little trips than anyone I know. Dude will just up and leave and I'll call him and he'll say "Oh, I'd love to get tacos but I'm in Nebraska" or "I'd love to get pizza but I'm in Albuquerque".

One thing that Dan excels at is thinking of Thirsty Dudes and always bringing us stuff back. Well on this occasion, he brought us stuff back from a store that is two miles away that carries this drink that I've never seen, Jay's never seen, and Derek's never seen. That's strange as we typically scour stores we've been to hundreds of times. You know, just in case. So he brought us back every flavor they had and I paid him in a burrito. He wanted me to wait for him to try this, but since he's not here, I'm thirsty, and this guy was cold, I had to go in without him.

He would and should be upset. It's got all the inherent bitterness you would expect from a white tea but a killer, natural strawberry flavor through and through.

It contains "strawberry flavoring" which is a bit ominous but it also contains Poteet strawberry puree although there isn't any seeds or strawberry remnants. Poteet is a city in Texas known for its strawberry festival, and dude, if this is what they come up with, I might have to schedule a trip.

This tea is wonderful. It's strong, sweet, and it tastes as natural as it says it is. Texas is known for being big, not liars. That stuff was cheap gas station swill that was passable only because it was so cheap. This on the other hand is a high quality organic tea. This one is also actually made in Texas instead of New Jersey. You can tell from the taste that actual blueberries were used in the creation of it. The sweetness of it is also very obviously pure cane sugar. I can imagine myself slowly sipping on a bottle while I sit on a back porch of a century house somewhere in the backwoods of the south.

The bottle was also informative as I learned that Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas and it also has the highest production of blueberries out of anywhere in the U. Who would have thought that? I never expect much to be in Texas. With the exception of Austin my experiences in that state have been less than stellar. This spells low quality. I really hope Hot Lips expands their reach and takes over the country with their quality soda. Hotlips does it again. They have managed to make a delicious fruit soda that isn't sweetened with any sugar.

I had to look at the ingredients three times just to be sure. And you know what? I'm not one to eat a pear normally, but this is delicious. It's really juicy and flavorful. My only complaint and this goes for all Hotlips sodas is it's only lightly carbonated.

I like my soda to be moderately fizzy, but you barely notice it here. I'm going to make some enemies with this statement, but I don't care: I don't like cranberries. That was until I had this soda. It's nice that it's naturally sweetened no real or fake sugar , and yet still tastes sweet. The cranberry taste is strong yet not overpowering like straight cranberry juice. When I moved back to Buffalo for 10 months, the number one complaint I got from fellow reviewer Jason was that I didn't review more Hotlips soda while I lived in Portland.

You'd think I passed up a chance to see a one-off Fugazi reunion by the consistency that he would bring it up. If he were my father, he might have disowned me, or at least cut off my allowance for a couple weeks. For those who are not familiar with it, Hotlips is a Portland, Oregon based chain of pizza shops that also make their own soda.

They are available on tap and bottled at various grocery stores around the greater Portland area. The great thing about Hotlips soda is that it's made with real fruit, something I didn't appreciate the first time I had one. It only contains whole ingredients, no gross chemicals or filler.
