Brand: Honey Stinger
Model: Organic Cracker N’ Nut Butter Snack Bars
OUR TAKE We grabbed these half-candy, half-cracker bars for a sweet-and-savory energy kick. “The texture is unique, sort of like chocolate-covered matzah,” one tester says. Fat (12 grams) provides lasting energy, while the sugary chocolate adds an anti-bonk lift.
INGREDIENTS Cashew butter in the middle provides 4 grams of protein (It’s paired with milk chocolate, as is the peanut butter version; the almond butter bar has dark chocolate). The bars have 220 calories in total (110 from fat). A sprinkling of sea salt inside makes them taste gourmet. Drawback: They crumble if not packed carefully.
TRAIL CRED “I often had to stop myself from eating my entire stash on day one,” says our Gear Editor.
