What's your favorite top-shelf granola bar?

 

I try to always keep some in my desk for snacking or breakfast emergencies - like this morning when I walked out without my yogurt.  

 

In general, I'd say KIND bars are usually my favorite. What else is good?

CLIFF seem to be more 'processed' in general.

I usually stick to protein bars.  Maximum processing.

I can't say i buy too many top shelf granola bars, especially since most granola bars are about the size of a tic tac nowadays.

 

If i want a quick snack with a little salty and sweet I usually stock up on the store brand that Aldi carries.  Decent ingredients and they don't break the bank.   My wife on the other hand is a big lara bar buyer, she does a subscription on Amazon.

I make my own. They are softer and more of a high calorie bar I use post workout or when in the backcountry.

I keep Larabars around for the employees. They were my favorites when I could eat dates.
