No Opportunity Wasted Energy Bars and Snack Bars came along with us to Tahoe last week. We tried the White Chocolate, Fruit & Nut flavor, and the Soft-Baked Strawberry Newton-style one.

Not surprisingly, the adults preferred the prior and the kids preferred the latter. We’re a fairly healthy, active group so we appreciated the convenience of these portable power sources, especially during a day slogging through three feet of fresh powder.

The bars are easy to recognize in their sunny yellow packaging with Amazing Race Phil Keoghan on the packaging.

The Strawberry ones contain New Zealand’s Manuka Honey along with the fruit and chia seeds. The White Chocolate one, along with all of the Energy Bars, are developed with non-GMO ingredients and have a 4:1 carb to protein ration to help maintain energy during endurance activities. They also contain white Chia seeds which provide healthy EFA’s and can also help regulate electrolytes.

They also come in Manuka Honey, Chocolate & Caramel and Peanut Honeycomb with Chia & Raisins, each manufactured in a facility approved and certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO).
