Whether you have just started on your fitness journey, or you have been a junkie for many years, allow me to share one of the main pieces of advice I’d ever been given: achieving your goals relies on the ratio of 75% diet and 25% exercise. The numbers differ in certain iterations of the principle — 70-30 or 80-20 — but essentially it teaches the same lesson. No matter how hard you work out, if the food you put into your body isn’t balanced, don’t expect any positive changes. I guess it is like having your cake and eating it too; which I’ve never understood, because what else is there to do with cake aside from eating it?! (Someone’s getting mad here). But fortunately, so many food trends and products have made it feasible to consume clean (or at least cleaner) without sacrificing the flavor.

Why Protein Bars Barn Built Prices

My goals involve fat loss and muscle toning, which means I have had to accept the painful truth that I have to watch my carbs, sugar, and fat consumption, whilst keeping a fairly good quantity of protein in my diet. For somebody like me, with an insatiable sweet tooth, this was/is the hardest adjustment of all. The physical training is not, and has never been, my issue. If there’s anything I am thankful for, it’s that I do not mind the exercise at all. The sweat, the soreness, the sensation of getting stronger and faster with every move: I live for it.

Then there’s the post-WOD struggle of wanting to consume double my body weight. Facepalm. I need my dessert. I would like my midday snacks. What’s a girl to do? The only real answer is finding a wholesome alternative for all my cravings.

Here is where protein bars come in. I have tried them all, and when I say all, I mean I have had some pretty decent ones, some rock hard ones, some chalky, some that tasted like medicine, and some that tasted like cardboard. Even those, I tolerated for a phase, but the really terrible ones were those that were promoted as “guilt-free,” only to reveal a large amount of fats or sugar in their nutritional fine print. How. Dare. You. I would’ve been better off having a genuine cheesecake.

Introduction to Built Bar

Enter a new kid on the block. I had been hearing a buzz about Built Bar from buddies (is this an alliteration or what), and I knew I had to try it. They can only be bought directly from their website, which I am totally fine with because no one wants a protein bar that’s been sitting on a shelf for months. Since I am the kind to go all out or nothing at all, I decided to avail of the BYOB or Build Your Own Built Bar Box. I don’t shy away from savings, and with 18 bars to my $38, that comes out to only a little more than $2 per bar. Sounded like a deal to me! The box may have up to 3 distinct flavors, allowing me to try out some of their 15 flavors in total. And like I said, I could get quite extra, so I ordered two boxes in that 1st purchase. Naturally, I picked 3 other flavors I hadn’t chosen yet, leaving me with 9 left to try for next time (and believe me, I’ve had my “next times” several times over by now).

The Hype Was Real Barn Built Prices

Taste

The 1st win for me when I took a bite was that I could’ve sworn it was chocolate that coated the whole bar. I immediately looked at the ingredients and nearly cried with joy: it WAS real, dark chocolate, and this is something that’s not common in most of the competition.

If you are not fond of chocolate and fruit combos, be warned. I am the total opposite, and absolutely love fruit together with chocolate. My favorite flavors include the banana, strawberry, and coconut chocolate crèmes, since they taste like fruit and none of those artificial, supplement-y kinds. Having said that, I can vouch for the other 6 variants without fruit, also. The people at Built Bar thought this through and have made something for everyone: just good’ol classic dessert goodness like double chocolate mousse and peanut butter, to name my top two. In case I have not made myself clear, my sweet tooth doesn’t feel neglected and is extremely satisfied. By taste alone, I’m a Built Bar believer!

Texture Barn Built Prices

So one of the qualities I discriminate by when selecting a baris the texture. The ones that get too hard are a pain to eat, and the ones that are chalky are unpalatable. While I eat those, I feel like I’m being punished to eat better.

Built Bar has the most unique, marshmallow mouth feel that reminds me of a favorite chocolate bar that I used to devour as a child. Soft and fluffy on the inside, with a crackling outer shell reminiscent of those dipped ice cream cones of my childhood. I can’t stress enough how content I feel when I sink my teeth into one (considering it this very moment)!

Nutritional Values Barn Built Prices

As much as I resented those fake-healthy barsI mentioned earlier, I was equal amounts of impressed with the care and detail that Built Bar put into their products.

Ingredients

The company boasts that they are serious about nutrition, which reflected in the ingredients that they opted to exclude and put in their bars. Each bar provides whey protein, which has a complete amino acid profile, but they have eliminated the elements of casein and lactose, which typically cause reactions in several of people. They have chosen erythritol and glycerine for their own sweeteners, 2 of the healthier options that have little to no side effects, while keeping the bars moist and flavorful. The soluble fiber in every bar is maltodextrin, which not only contributes to the yummy texture I gushed about, but is also known to increase health benefits. There are no nuts nor soy in their products, so this is safe for those with allergies. Last but definitely not the least, may I repeat, REAL CHOCOLATE. ‘Nuff said.

Regrettably, whey protein and another ingredient, gelatin, fall under the category of non-vegan and non-vegetarian, as well as non-halal and non-kosher. My heart goes out to you people who can not experience this treat.

Macros

For the macro counters, I am delighted to report that Built Bars have the lowest calorie count among all of the top brands in the marketplace. At only 110 calories, 15 g of protein, and only 7 g of net carbs, 4 g of sugar, and 4 g of fat, they could actually claim to be a guilt-free snack or meal replacement. No one can be mad about these numbers. In fact, Weight Watchers rejoice, since these only count for 3 WW points.

Price and Shipping

I’ve touched on this earlier, as I recounted my first order, but another wonderful thing about Built Bars is that the more you buy, the more you save. They have deals that heap on the discounts, like adding extra items to cart will shave a larger percentage off your closing checkout sum.

They also have a sample box with 10 unique flavors (only available for 1st timers, which I didn’t know about before), that bring each bar’s cost down to about $1.76.

Delivery is free on USPS priority over the US, and arrives in a reasonable amount of time, considering they’re all shipped 2-4 days after production. I’m all for it if that means freshly made goodies for me.

You can probably tell I am a Built Bar enthusiast, and if I have not expressed how much I really like it, I am throwing in some excess FAQ for some of you who are still on the boundary.

FAQ Barn Built Prices

What are the other flavors of Built Bar?

So glad you asked. They change their offerings every so often, maybe to keep giving us die-hards something new, or to address market demands. But from the last time I checked, here are a few of their current flavors (or the last ones I ordered) along with their macros.

How sure are we that these are healthy?

I have detailed most of their ingredients above. However, another reason to trust the company is because its creator and developer has a PhD in molecular chemistry and has an impressive reputation. Fun fact? He makes the chocolate himself, from cocoa beans.

Are there any side effects?

Personally, none for me. If you have allergies, please thoroughly check the ingredients before eating.

What if I don’t like how it tastes, and I am left with 17 bars from the BYOB?

First of all, you have to try more than one flavor. Even I don’t like all the fun-sized versions in these commercial, chocolate party packs, but I found the ones I love by trying them all (well, nobody asked me to…)

Second, they actually have a Built Taste Guarantee. You may get in touch with their customer service within 14 days and request a refund, but they solely entertain this for 1st-time buyers. While they don’t accept refunds, they do exchanges, and then you will get flavors that you’ll love as much as I do.

Can they melt?

Yes, just like chocolate and other foods that are not laden with synthetic substances. I wouldn’t advise lugging them around with you on a hot day; they have to be kept at room temperature. But if you want to try eating them like I do, eat them cold, straight from the fridge.

Does this work?

If you mean has it suppressed my sweet cravings and given me a healthier snack alternative, definitely. I feel fuller for longer, and gives me a boost of energy for my workouts. Then again, it really depends on our individual goals, so try to see how this fits into your regimen.

Do they offer other products? Barn Built Prices

Yes, they’ve vitamin blends known as Built Boost that contain 11 essential vitamins, 3 plant extracts, and the maximum amount of vitamins B2 and B6. They’re a terrific supplement for a healthier lifestyle.
