You're hungry. You know you should have made a salad before going to work, but. And yesterday you had a hot dog and a muffin for lunch. Maybe you should have a protein bar today! It's low fat, high protein, good for you, right?
Blue Avocado asked the staff of the Center for Nonprofit Advancement in Washington, D.C. to taste test protein bars for the rest of us. They were pretty disappointed. On a scale of 1 - 5, with 5 at the top, the highest score was a lackluster 3.5, and that was for a bar priced almost three times higher than the average.
Atkins Advantage Chocolate Chip: "Most like a Clark Bar. But not very much like a Clark Bar."
Balance Gold Chocolate Peanut Butter: "Good & chewy" "Bad aftertaste!"
Clif Bar Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch: "Weird texture and taste."
Power Bar Triple Threat Caramel Peanut Fusion: "Good chocolate taste."
Zone Perfect Chocolate Peanut Butter: "Please, no!"
Susan Sanow (pictured), along with Betsy Johnson, Jeff Kost andCorey Schnaut lent their taste buds to this project. The Center for Nonprofit Advancement has 850 members, 13 staff, and holds classes in nonprofit management, provides insurance policies for nonprofits, and has an array of other services for nonprofits in the Washington, D.C. area.
Thanks, you guys!
