I have been eating GoMacro macrobars for YEARS! I think the first time I ever tried one was over a decade ago. First off they taste amazing, and secondly the ingredients are so simple and there is nothing unrecognizeable in them. I was recently sent a tray of their GoMacro minis (mini versions of their full bars) to try and there were lots of flavors that were new to me.
Just check out the nutrition information / ingredients in the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bar (my favorite):
I especially love these bars for endurance athletic events or hikes. I would much rather get my energy from these bars than from a gu of sorts and there is an awesome ratio of fats / carbs / proteins versus being purely carbs.
I am particularly partial to GoMacro’s Protein Pleasure (PB choc chip), Protein Replenishment (peanut butter), Sweet Rejuvination (cashew butter), Protein Paradise (cashew caramel), and Balanced Goodness (granola and coconut). I can honestly say that I like all of their flavors (they have 11 flavors in all) with the exception of Prolonged Power (banana and almond butter)… I am generally not a fan of banana products and only like ACTUAL bananas or banana bread, so I am not really sure that I am the best judge of that. In addition to those mentioned above, they have:
- Protein Purity (sunflower butter and chocolate)
- Wholehearted Heaven (almond butter and carob)
- Sweet Revival (sesame butter and dates)
- Sunny Uplift (cherries and berries)
- Morning Harvest (apples and walnuts)
The texture of the bars is very similar to a caramel…soft and chewy. These bars are not dry like a lot of other bars out there nor are they chalky like many vegan protein products tend to be (win, win).
GoMacro also prides their products on being:
