The protein bar you need to be eating

By now, you’ve probably heard that not all protein bars are a healthy choice, what with all the added sugar and paragraphs-long ingredients lists hiding on the back of the label.

But let’s face it: on-the-go bars are just as necessary in your daily hustle as dry shampoo. So, what do you do when you need a quick bite, like, right now?

Turns out, transparency is the answer. RXBAR, the snack pioneer that lists the core ingredients (in large print) right on the front of the label, has long been buzzed about by Well+Good editors and the clean-eating industry at large for offering what we all want most: just the facts, no B.S.

And the nutrition holds up. Each bar has 12 grams of protein (courtesy of three egg whites), includes up to eight real ingredients, and offers 4 grams of fiber to keep you full from morning workout to morning meeting. Plus, they’re totally free of added sugar, gluten, and soy for the ultimate breakfast, pre-gym fuel, or desk-side snack.

There’s a full spectrum of flavors if you like to switch things up (like chocolate sea salt, blueberry, and peanut butter), but right now, we’re all about the autumn-flavor cravings—including maple sea salt, apple cinnamon, and, yep, pumpkin spice.

So, we taste-tested the fall lineup to find out if they’re as good as the usual fare (spoiler alert: the RXBAR stash at the office is currently picked clean).

Scroll down for three good-for-you options you’ll definitely want to add to your snack drawer this season.

Maple Sea Salt

This recently released flavor was the first to disappear from our pantry—and with the sweet maple taste (don’t worry, it’s balanced with savory sea salt), it’s easy to see why. Every RXBAR starts with chewy dates as a base, resulting in a bite that’s just as melt-in-your-mouth moist as it is filling.

Apple Cinnamon

Formulated with almonds, cashews, apples, and cinnamon, this one’s like apple crisp in a bar. The protein- and fiber-rich base is the perfect 4 p.m. snack (when hangry meltdowns are imminent)—and although it’s super satiating, it clocks in around 200 calories (as do all of the flavors).

Pumpkin Spice

Made with everything that makes pumpkin pie everyone’s fall favorite (ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and, yes, real pumpkin), this seasonal edition packs all of the nutrition in the other bars—and tastes shockingly like the real thing.

This flavor is only around for a limited time (until supplies last!), but you can enter to win a year’s supply of pumpkin spice bars at rxbar.com until October 31. Trust us—you’ll want to.
