We think this is pretty much the best energy bar you can buy, and we've tried a lot! It's totally organic, gluten free, and made of simple ingredients you'll find in the grocery store, not a laboratory. Unlike most bars that contain refined sugars, Kate's use natural source of carbohydrates like honey and dried fruit, which contain complex sugars for sustained energy. Plus they just taste darn good, and the whole food ingredients make the texture a lot more enjoyable than other bars. Perfect for your next run up Rock Creek!
