Nuts and bolts and berries.

Picky Bars' lighthearted approach to marketing and promotional materials is at stark odds with the actual nuts and bolts (and berries) that inform the science behind the Real Food Energy Bars. If you don't give a fig for that stuff and just want to get fueled and get after it, then by all means just click on the Add to Cart button and enjoy some active nutrition that actually tastes like food. We're into the know-how behind the can-do, though, so we dug through the goods to find out what makes them tick.

The ABCs of Picky Bars begin with Agave, end with Walnuts, and are filled out by equally "real" ingredients that target the sweet-spot of a 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein. The most exotic-sounding entry on the list is Pepitas, which are actually just pumpkin seeds, and which Picky Bars suggests help in recovery and metabolizing sugars. The rest of the normal-type foodstuffs are chosen for similar science-y benefits — not even the pedestrian, who-needs-an-excuse chocolate chip is spared from scrutiny (anti-toxin properties that promote blood flow).

Of course, if the exhaustive biology informing the ingredient choices isn't enough, just trying one will win you over. They may resemble typical workout bars, but they don't taste like them. They're also dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and vegan, so the only bar to entry is trying to tear the package open with your teeth in the saddle.

Similar to Lara bars, but tastier.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love Picky Bars. Lara Bars are good, but it is better to be Picky.

A little sticky and sweet

    I love that these bars are made with real food, but since they're date-based, they tended to be a little sweeter than I like.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love these bars. They are moist enough to eat when tired and lacking water. I could get these down much easier than others. Well balanced with the nutrition needed on the trail! Taste good too!

      Well, this review is for "Ag Fudge"

      To be honest, doesnt taste too good but it calorie packed and good amount of sodium... which makes it an ideal food for long rides..


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      not a huge fan of the texture. Pretty chalky like many of these types of meal bars. The Smooth Caffeinator flavor isn't too bad, but I prefer Kate's Real Food bars.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I would eat this for energy on a long bike ride or just as a snack. The flavor was enjoyable and the texture was east to get down without having to drink all my water.

      Da BOMB

      These are so good! Good snacks even part meal! Need to try them if you have not! !

      They've grown on me

        First box I wasn't all that excited about, but I tried some new flavors and they are made of good ingredients and fuel me for a day of ski touring.

        love em

          These bars are great. Good ingredients, easy to eat, and delicious as a mid bike ride snack. Haven't tried a flavor yet I didn't like. Two thumbs up for sure!


            Not really digging these bars, while they are made out of great ingredients the taste compared to a probar is subpar.
