Better Than Coffee Energy Bars, 100mg Caffeine (Sample Pack, 4 flavors, 4 count)

When I read about these bars, I figured ‘Worth a try’.  Working out each day, I always have a little caffeine in the morning, before killing it in the gym.  The Better Than Coffee Energy Bars, 100 mg Caffeine sounded new, and different for me.

The flavors are:

  • ‘Dark Chocolate & Coconut: Our original flavor. Intense notes of 70% organic dark chocolate, lightly sweetened by coconut flakes.
  • French Roast: Rich notes of dark roast coffee give way to undertones of 70% organic dark chocolate. Robust, bittersweet flavor ideal for coffee lovers.
  • Dark Chocolate & Cranberry: Perfect balance of strong cranberry complemented by our 70% organic dark chocolate. 
  • Dark Chocolate & Mint: Our hallmark 70% dark chocolate with a minty twist that lingers on the tongue.’

As I had never had anything like this before I figured I would start off with a quarter of a bar.  I only weigh 110 lbs., and am a small eater.  I didn’t feel a burst of energy, but was able to do my 30 minutes of boxing, followed by weight machines, and then 15 minutes of exercises, and stretches.  Later in the day I didn’t get a crash, so it must have worked like my one cup of coffee in the morning.

I like the flavors, that are certainly not sweet at all.  As I don’t add sugar to anything, I am fine with them, but if you have a sweet tooth, they are not a sweet chocolate.

The price is a little high for the size of the bar, but thinking that I am only eating a small amount, it’s fine with me.  I figure that after a couple of weeks I would be having half a bar.  Larger guys, I am sure would have a full bar.  No problem.

A little from the webpage:

Café de Loja Gourmet TESTER BAG Whole Bean Coffee – Medium / Dark Roast Arabica

I only drink coffee, and water, at home.  I will have an alcoholic drink when we go dancing, but that’s it.  Therefore it is imported to have a good quality coffee.  The Café de Loja Gourmet TESTER BAG Whole Bean Coffee – Medium / Dark Roast Arabica gives you a chance to try it, at a very inexpensive price.  100 gm/.22 pounds at a cost of $2.80.

I have a manual grinder, so ground up enough for me to have a couple of cups of coffee.  I like to keep the beans whole until I am actually making it.  When grinding the smell was amazing, and while it was brewing, I couldn’t wait to drink some.

I found it to have a rich full body, with a fruity hint, and no aftertaste in my mouth.  I sometimes take milk, or cream in my coffee, but this coffee was perfect without anything added to it.

I did receive mine at a discounted price, and a small packet such as this, is perfect

for you to try it.
