X Marks the Spot: A Bar in Review
Updated: Jul 12
The Chocolate Sea Salt Protein Bar made by RXBAR
In 2013, RXBAR decided to “call B.S. on protein bars” and instead created their own simple and nutritious version of the product. Rejecting the complex ingredient list used by mainstream companies, RXBAR went free of gluten and GMO's and only included whole food options with real, clean ingredients.
The RXBAR is perfect for people who are on-the-go and want stand alone snacks or pre/post workout energy bars.
RXBAR has several different flavors of their product and their protein bars are described as using only a few basic ingredients found in typical home kitchens and pantries. For example, today I sampled the Chocolate Sea Salt RXBAR, which is predominately made of egg whites, nuts, dates, sea salt and pure chocolate.
I expected my first bite to taste like dates but I was wrong; the ingredient is used mainly as a binding agent and its flavor is subtle. Instead, the first taste to hit my palette was that of chocolate. The energy bar reminded me very much of Eat-more – a chocolate bar made by Hershey and also a much-loved and past-time indulgence of mine.

The Chocolate Sea Salt RXBAR is best stored in cool places. If handled in warmer temperatures for longer than a few moments, the product tends to melt. So eat quickly!
Overall, I very much enjoy this protein bar. It provides to me an amazing mixture of textures. Its soft and chewy interior extends each bite long enough to enjoy every sensory experience of goodness that RXBAR has to offer. Its exterior is strategically coated with after-burst clusters of salt which make the consumer crave for more of this amazing product.
