Date Reviewed: February 12, 2001

Strengths:    Taste, texture

Weaknesses:    A bit brittle, i.e. breaks or squashes easily when packed in a jersey pocket

Bottom Line:   
The best energy bar in the market. Great flavour, easy to chew and digest. I like Clif, too, but UAWUE are much less dense. Shame only that their distribution is limited. If all those sad people who buy up their Powerbars at the supermarket knew what they are missing ...

Bottom Line:   
These bars taste like a meal, like real food.
I like Clif bars too but overall I'd rate these bars higher.
For a trip that would include the possibility of damage to my improperly packed luggage I'd take some Powerbars (banana) because even though they taste bad they don't break. But for the othe 99% of my life, UAWYE bars are the best thing out there.

Weaknesses:    
None


Bottom Line:   
I recently won a box of You are What You Eat bars from Bicycling Magazine. They are probably the best tasting energy bars currently on the market. They are easy to digest so you don't have to swig down half a waterbottle. My wife who hates the taste of conventional energy bars keeps stealing these bars on me.

More than a quick fix, these bars could actually sustain you since eating more than one of many competitive brands' bars would make me hork. I want MORE!!

Bottom Line:   
Our Dining Hall at Cornell received a couple of boxes as a promotion, so I snagged some of each flavor. I first tried one as an energy booster to keep me studying, and it worked, but, more importantly, it tasted good. On the bike, it was easy to get down, and keep down. Including the information that the bars are Kosher in their advertising was a great idea, because it let me and some of my friends who bike (we oly eat Kosher) know about the product. There aren't many Kosher energy bars out there, so it was a big deal when this came out. Just one point - although the ads say the bars are Parve (not meat or dairy), one flavor (I think it's blueberry) is dairy (something about how they proccess the fruit). A great product and a great company.

Strengths:    
Texture, not to earthy, great flavors, don't need to drink a alot after you eat one.


Weaknesses:    
Not as filling as some other bars, you almost want to eat two.


Bottom Line:   
A great tasting, light, bar that doesn't require you to drink alot of fluid to get it down. A nice change from some of the other bars out there.

Strengths:    
easy to eat -- no need to drink afterwards


Weaknesses:    
nondescript taste


Bottom Line:   
If you spend a comparable amount of money now for granola or energy bars, this product is worth trying...but don't expect its MOUTH WATERING TASTE! claim to hold up.

Date Reviewed: April 6, 1999

Strengths:    
The bars are very tasty and digestible while riding/training, and maintain their texture in all weather conditions. Very healthy.


Weaknesses:    
I like a little more protein on long rides, but those bars never taste as good. This is a good compromise.


Bottom Line:   
Highly recommended for picky eaters and people with a sensitive stomach during exertion. Everyone else will like them too, unless you hate all these energy bars and then there's no helping you.

Strengths:    
Really great tasting. energy bar. I like the brownie like texture. Its a great instant breakfast, afternoon quick pick me up, and a perfect pre race snack.


Bottom Line:   
This is the best tasting, low fat, energy bar I have tried. I highly recommend it. The four different flavors are great. The Blue Berry & Apple Cinnamon are perfect morning Snacks. The Peanut Butter Bar is a great afternoon snack and the Chocolate is a great bed time treat!

Strengths:    
Great Taste (all flavors - don't have to water it down)
Great Texture (actually appetizing)
Great for you (got it all)
Stands up to heat/getting stuffed in CamelBack


Weaknesses:    
None


Bottom Line:   
The best bar I've tried so far. I don't even have to wash it down with water (ie- Power Bar, Clif Bar, etc.). The flavors and consistency are great and I actually look forward to eating a bar in the middle of a ride instead of knowing I should try to choke one (of the other brands) down. I'd recommend these over any other based on the my happy eating experiences.

Bottom Line:   
The YouAreWhatYouEat bar is about the best tasting bar I have tried. The texture is flaky and moist. It's like eating cake (AppleCinnamon). All the flavors are very good. The nutritional value is very high also. Definately worth trying. It replaces the cookies in my lunch.
