Justin Nyberg at Outside Blog tested these new Bonk Breaker energy bars. I have zero need for the extra calories packed into an energy bar, so I'm going to pass on testing these personally. Based on Nyberg's review as well as a quick search of other reviews, it seems that Bonk Breakers rock! No icky or chalky aftertaste, and moist enough to eat during a run without a gallon of water to chase them. This is the first energy bar I've seen described as tasting like "real food," and not a dense, chewy, food substitute.
The company is also introducing a Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Chip variety, and if the reviews for their Peanut Butter and Jelly version are any indication, they will be awesomely good. Can't find them in your local store? Head to Bonk Breakers and pick up a box.
