WTF is a Zombie Bar?!

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

I’m usually willing to take a bit out of any bar on the market, so when this power bar fell onto my desk, I was intrigued. Zombies seem to be having a moment now, (Insert The Walking Dead reference here), and vampires are phasing out, so why not develop a bar based on the zombie trend? The tagline for ZombieFoodBars, “Tastes Better than Brains,” wasn’t very appealing, and the whole idea of eating zombie food is just, well, weird, but the high fiber, high protein, nutrient packed bar claims to be an exceptional source of sustained energy. At 250 calories a bar, it’s a little more calorie dense than an afternoon snack should be, but the 14g of fat and 23g of carbs it provides are super fueling after an intense workout. It definitely has a power bar-y taste, but also tastes more homemade and less processed than a traditional power bar because it is packed with real ingredients like almond butter, dates, cashews, goji berries, cinnamon and cocoa. Those are all things I recognize and eat, yay! Zombies must be fans of some of the other ingredients like spirulina powder, barley grass juice powder, chlorella powder (possibly a supplement to their diet consisting mainly of human flesh?!) Hey, even zombies need their greens.

What weird power bars have you tried? This one tops my list!
