Currently Crushing on: Peanut Butter Perfect Bars

I have been swooning over these bars for the last few weeks and I must share my obsession!

I’ve tried so many protein bars with no success in finding one that I actually enjoy eating. So many taste like chemicals, have weird flavors that just don’t mesh with my taste buds, or have an awful protein to sugar ratio.

I’m not a dietitian, but there are two main things I look at when I’m choosing what bar to buy: protein and ingredients. These bars have 17g of protein, more than my go-to pre/post workout snack, Greek yogurt. Most importantly though, I CAN READ and understand every single ingredient in the Perfect bar!

While it tastes EXACTLY like peanut butter fudge, it’s packed with 20+ super foods including dried whole food powder of spinach, kale, carrot, and tomato (the list goes on). The texture isn’t chalky like I usually find in bars. My ONLY qualm is that I wish there was a bit less sugar, however the sugar does come from natural ingredients like honey.

You can tell that it’s legit just by the fact that these are the only bars stored in the refrigerated section at the grocery store to preserve the ingredients. Perfect Bars come in a variety of flavors including almond butter, cranberry crunch, and almond coconut, but I’ve found that peanut butter always stays my favorite and, in my opinion, has the best protein bang for you buck.

I’ve found them at Ralph’s near the healthy juice/kombucha/cold brew and at 7-11 but you can see where they sell them near you here. They also sell a sample box for $19.99 at Costco that comes with 12 bars—four pb, four almond butter, and four cranberry crunch. Otherwise, they’re around $2.99 individually at the store.

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post, I really do feel strongly about how much I love these bars and wanted to share. I am neither a dietician nor an expert and these opinions are my own.
