    I was gonna say this. The reason they're dry is because for some reason people don't want to eat fat when, in all reality, if you want energy, then you should be looking to eat fat. There's 2.25 times as much energy in a gram of fat as there is in a gram of carbs or protein. I wish someone made an energy bar that was mostly fat. Until then, I guess I'll carry bacon with me.

    These are pretty good, actually. Not soft, which is great on a hot day, but not hard. Not too sweet either. They can stick to your teeth a little bit, but some liquid takes care of that. These are part of my ninth hole routine with a Nuun. About 12 g protein, 12-14 g sugar (no added), 7-10 g fat, and 210-220 calories. They come in 11 flavors.

    What say ye, THP.
    The standard cliff bar (not the nut butter filled) are good. Peanut butter banana, peanut butter crunch, all very good, not dry, and stable for a while in bag since they aren't coated. Target carries a huge variety at good prices. Often though, two 5 bar packs are less than the 10 bar convenience pack.
