Review: Battle Bars

I thought protein bars had gone about as far as they could go—until a K-Bar from Battle Bars wound up in my pack. It’s got the usual virtues—natural ingredients, loads of protein and calories, non-GMO, et al—but the difference is in taste and texture. Not only is the K-Bar delicious, but it’s soft, moist, and easy to chew, like a Rice Krispie treat—which means no more laborious gnawing after a three-hour skin in below-freezing weather. Available online; $33 for 12.
