OUR TAKE Simply put, these are the best-tasting snacks we tried this year. With flavors like Peri Peri-style chicken and Sweet Potato Pecan beef, DNX rose to the top of this season’s carnivore options.
INGREDIENTS The Peri Peri chicken (our favorite) gets its flavor from cardamom, ginger, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and onion for off-the-grill flavor. While each bar has 13 grams of protein, they’re only 60 calories, so consider them a light snack. They’re also shelf-stable up to a year. Bummer: expensive.
TRAIL CRED “On dayhikes around Moab, I always saved one of these bars for last as a reward,” one tester says.
