Protein Bar Comparison

After a long day in the office, knowing that we have a tough night of training ahead of us, we need to grab a quick, convenient and healthy snack to provide us with the fuel that we need to perform at our best. Time after time, I would stop on my way to the gym to "grab something to eat" and time after time, I was disappointed in the options available. It was this disappointment that lead us to develop 'The Original' Muscle Up Bar; a bar that wouldn't disappoint!

Using the specifications in the chart below, we were able to develop a bar that met our expectations and tasted great at the same time. See how your bar compares.
