    Need help selecting the best protein bar?

    I did a search and it didn't answer my question. 2 days a week I'm kinda stuck in school all day so I need to get protein bars for those days. My choices are:

    1. Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex $2.20 per bar, 35g of protein.

    2. EAS Muscle Drive $2.10 per bar, 33g of protein.

    There are some that are just about $1.50 per bar, but only have 20g of protein so I'd rather eat one of those then two of the lesser protein ones. I figured out the protein per dollar and these are top. So I'll eat 2 a day on those days and get 70g of good protein. My other choices are fast food. If you have any other bars that offer a better bang for the buck, give me a link to where I can order them from and the info please.

    Some more info on them.

    Why are those your only two choices? One thing I've learned through trial and error is that many protein bars are exactly the same, just different colored packaging and some fancy words printed on the back. One overlooked aspect of protein bars is taste. It is crucial, IMO. And for that, I recommend Detour bars by Next Nutrition, check 'em out.

    My main concern was protein amount per dollar. Taste is of little concern to me. These happened to have the most protein out of many I've looked at. Can you give me a link to the place that sells the Detour bars?

    Detour bars contain a respectable amount of protein, but they are NOT cheap. They taste amazing, and you certainly pay for it.

    I like MetRX chocolate chip. More of a MRP bar I guess but I have tried a bunch and still like them.
