The 5 Best Energy Bars Slideshow

5. Balance Bar Caramel Nut Blast (Score: 6.5/10)

Calories: 210, Fat: 7g, Carb: 23g, Sugar: 14g, Fiber: <1g, Protein: 14g
Tasters were uncertain about the "nut blast" flavor descriptor, but enthused about the bar’s candy taste. "Needs crunch," one reviewer lamented tersely.

4. Kashi Go Lean Roll Caramel Peanut (Score: 7/10)

Calories: 190, Fat: 5g, Carb: 27g, Sugar: 14g, Fiber: 6g, Protein: 12g
This reminded most tasters of a delicious, crunchy salted nut roll, though one confessed (somewhat dramatically) to feeling betrayed and assaulted by the mismatch of sweetness and peanuts.

3. Clif Carrot Cake (Score: 7/10)

Calories: 240, Fat: 4.5g, Carb: 44g, Sugar: 25g, Fiber: 5g, Protein: 9g
Tasters liked the spice and thought the bar was a good replica of carrot cake without icing, but were puzzled by the conflicting textures and questioned the value of a world without cream cheese icing.

2. Snickers Marathon Energy (Score: 9/10)

Calories: 210, Fat: 8, Carb: 26g, Sugar: 15g, Fiber: 5g, Protein: 13g
Arguably healthier than Clif, Snickers Marathon Energy was nonetheless cheerfully rated and described as crunchy, not too sweet and chocolate and nuts marries energy; this hit me in the spot reserved for tasty afterthoughts.

1. Clif Mojo Honey Roasted Peanut (Score: 9.75/10)

Calories: 200, Fat: 11, Carb: 26g, Sugar: 18g, Fiber: 2g, Protein: 9g
This crunchy delight was the clear winner. Tasters enthused, The sweet and salty taste sensations came at my mouth like gangbusters! And who could screw up peanuts and honey? Not Clif, apparently.

The Worst Energy Bar: SoyJoy Berry (Score: 3/10)

Calories: 130, Fat: 4.5, Carb: 17g, Sugar: 12g, Fiber: 3g, Protein: 4g
This bar served as a bready affront to all taste sensibilities and inspired reviewers to pen angry screeds on various holes it should be jammed into and/or buried. No amount of energy in the world is worth another bite of this hateful, berry monstrosity, one ranted, while another simply scrawled, Soft. Ugly. Offensive.
