What is your favorite packaged whole30 and/or paleo snack bar?

I'd be interested to know if there really is any W30 snack bar… can't imagine what it would be made out of (does a snack bar count as SWYPO?)

When I did my W30 I ate beef jerky and Sea Snax in lieu of snack bars. It was hard enough to find a beef jerky that was W30 friendly.

I like Larabars which can be found, among other places, at Trader Joe's.

How about Epic bars? Opinions vary as to whether they're OK for Whole30. They're not granola, though, more like soft jerky.

Larabars are technically approved by the Whole30 people, I believe, as long as they contain no added sugar or peanuts. They say take it easy, though. Mostly recommended for athletes I think.

They are also my favorite!

Oh yes, I remember that now about Larabars, you just need to be really careful on the ingredients because there are a bunch of varieties that have unapproved ingredients in them (as noted). There are also these Primal Pac things. The Epic bars sound really interesting. I checked out the website and all but the Bison bar look compliant (Bison bar has bacon and like most bacon, has sugar in it).

If you can't find Epic bars, Tanka bars are very similar. A little more jerky-like in texture, but not much.

Some Epic bars (the bison flavor) have sugar in them and are therefore not W30 compliant.

I had NoGii Paleo bars at CrossFit Regionals and liked them enough to order a box. Pretty sure they're Whole 30, and they were damn tasty (berry flavor especially).

Nthing the Tanka bar recommendation. NOMNOMNOM

I've bought Primal Pacs in the past and liked them. Not bars, but they fill the same snacky need.
