We found out that the Clif Builder’s Bars has an ingredient that we don’t like, so we started to look for a different protein bar. We didn’t find a good substitute protein bar, but we found Dr. Mercola Organic Energy Bars. They got very good reviews, so we bought some to see what they were like. These bars are not protein bars; we just wanted to get something that we could eat as a snack or bring as food on hikes.

I have to say, they are very delectable (using a word that we just wrote about). Cocoa cassava is the only flavor available from Dr. Mercola. This flavor has coconut in it, so if you dislike coconut, then you probably wouldn’t enjoy these too much. Also, they have these little chia seeds that can sometimes get stuck in between your teeth. I have never gotten one stuck in my teeth, but my mom and John both have.Energy Bar

Anyway, these energy bars taste much like a candy bar. They are fairly small compared to a Clif Builder’s Bar, but they stay with you so it doesn’t really matter. You can eat one bar and be satisfied for hours. You may not be full, but you probably won’t feel like eating anything for a while. Because they taste like candy, they can make an excellent desert or just a nice snack.

They are certified organic by USDA as well as Ecocertico, which is an independent agency. Because of this, you can probably be more certain that they are really healthy. They are made in the U.S.A., and that’s also a good thing. They are expensive, so you probably would not want to eat them every day. Our mom got them on a sale, and you might want to try the same thing. We got a picture of the nutrition facts in case you want to see what’s in them.

As far as how much energy they give you, I can’t say. It’s hard to tell. All I know is that they sustain you for a long time and that they taste very good. However, they are very expensive, and if you get them at all, you should try to get them on sale. You can get them here. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this product a 10 and so would John.
