1. I just want something to carry in my purse while travelling, not to sustain me on a 10k marathon.
2. Taste is priority. Clif Bars taste like cardboard, granola bars are bone-dry, chewy granola bars are sickeningly sweet.
3. Ideally it will serve two purposes: it'll cure hunger pangs if I'm a couple of hours away from a meal, and it can also function as dessert.
I guess I want a delicious chocolate brownie (or cookie or cake slice) that isn't just a straight sugar hit. Am I going to find anything like that in energy bar form?
