I am a big fan of "Taste of Nature" bars - mainly whole ingredients rather than pulverized like a cliff bar. And there are a bunch of different flavours / varieties.

Around here the best place to go look at a selection is the organic section at the Superstore. They even have way more types of bar than MEC.

Have tried many...not going to pretend to even remember the names of most of them...still find myself going back to Cliff Bars...seem to fill me up the best and keep me going.

Nature Valley - Sweet & Salty (Cashew), basically just sugar with a bit of fat (160cal). I prefer the taste and texture over any of the true protein/energy bars.

Also available at just about any grocery store and very frequently on sale (usually $1.99/5 bars).

I've had some homemade bars, the quality of the ingredients can be very good but I have a sweet tooth and "good for you bars" rarely satisfy nor provide the instant boost I'm looking for to get me through the last hour or so of paddling.
