I am so excited the weekend is almost here 🙂
Yesterday I spent approximately 20 minutes in Walgreens trying to find a good bar to snack on and stumbled upon two new (to me) brands that were on sale, so I gave them a go! I have been a Luna/Clif girl for a while, sophomore year, I ate a Luna bar for breakfast almost everyday. I will base my protein bar comparisons are in relation to these treats.
Luna- chewy but crispy, lots of flavor varieties, good snack size, decent protein to sugar ratio
Clif- dense, but fudgey consistency, lots of flavor varieties, lot of sugar (way more than I originally thought!)
Nogii- light, crispy, not too sweet, gluten free
Snickers Marathon Smart Stuff- dense, chewy, right amount of sweetness, few flavor selection (I tried the trail version and was not a fan), smaller size/calorie count
After looking at these bars side by side, I will probably still eat Luna bars. I do think I will try and find some more NoGii bars for an after workout snack. I really like that the bars are not as sweet, but still have a ton of protein. The biggest downside is that there is currently only a couple flavors.
After reading Kath’s post about packing, I got inspired to
throw a bunch of my stuff into a suitcase pack. While I was looking in my closet for which dress I wanted to wear for the captain’s dinner, I found this gem hiding in the top shelf:
Good thing I found them before “packing” ensued:
Well, I am off to do a little shopping with the girls, and then home to do a little shopping with the sister!
