Protein Bars are the nutritional equivalent of a whey protein shake and are generally consumed by people following some sort of exercise regimen, usually involving weight lifting or by people following a low-carbohydrate diet like the Atkins Diet.

They’re fast, easy, and convenient but no matter what flavor the manufacturer attempts to impart, they all end up tasting vaguely like a mixture of dog shit and sawdust – or at least what I imagine that mixture to taste like.

Still, if you are trying to work off years of sitting at a computer and eating fast food, a little dog shit and sawdust isn’t too high of a price to pay. Just try to resist the temptation to wash the awful taste out of your mouth with a bottle of Yoo-Hoo and a Twinkie.

Here’s the nutritional info of the back of the one I just ate for breakfast:

Total Fat: 6g
Cholesterol: 30mg
Sodium: 150mg
Potassium: 160mg
Total Carbohydrate: 7g

Now where’s that bottle of Yoo-Hoo?
