Fe Fit Fuel Protein & Energy Bar Review

You know those times when you really know you need to get up and work out but you're just so comfortable or have no energy? Yeah, I get those days too! Fortunately, there are things to give you that little boost of energy that you need to get up and get going. Fe Fit Fuel bars are one of those things. They're even better as fuel for your muscles AFTER your workout!

Fe Fit Fuel bars are a mini snack packed with protein (and energy)! They are also gluten free and a paleo whole natural food. These bars come in 3 enticing flavor selections. You may also purchase them in a combo pack that will include all 3 flavors. The three C's:

- Cacao Nib Almond
- Cashew Apricot
- Coconut Pecan

I must admit, when I saw these, I was a little iffy. Firstly, they are mini! However, when you eat them, they are very dense and there is more to them than what you see! If you want to get technical, the bars range between 1.13 and 1.16 ounces a piece. Fair weight for such a small snack! Though my attempt above was to show the size, sometimes pictures can be deceiving. In comparison to size (not weight), these would be similar to a 'fun size' candy bar that you would purchase in packs in the store.

Next, I opened a package (these pictures happen to be the Cashew Apricot variety). No, they do not look appetizing. At least to me they don't. But please keep in mind that these are Paleo and All Natural. If you want the health benefits, you may just have to give up the visual appeal. Many health concious eaters are already accustomed to this.

The taste test. The most exciting part, right? Being packed with 10 grams of protein in this tiny bar, I was a bit skeptical that it would have that 'taste'. You know the one! Fortunately these do not have that dry, protein-like flavor to them. They have a very fresh, natural flavor instead. Almost as if the ingredients were just all slapped together with some honey! Can't get any more fresh than that! For reference, here is the list of ingredients in the Cashew Apricot variety. Both other bars are similar, with the exception of a few ingredients.
Isolate whey protein, raw pecans, organic dates, raw cashews, dried apricot, organic raw coconut, spring water, raw honey, organic coconut sugar, organic chia seeds, organic ground flax seed, raw organic extra virgin coconut oil, pure vanilla extract, sea salt
