The Elite Eight


Last year, I featured The Sweet Sixteen. This year, I’m featuring The Elite Eight – and all eight bars are vegan!

Here are the matchups, as shown above:

First Round

Raw Revolution vs. Clif – Clif Bars are cheap and easy. Not only that, they are filled with carbs. That’s a good thing. However, they are a little on the dry side, and they simply can’t compete with the delicious flavors that Raw Revolution has to offer.

Go Macro vs. ProBar – Full disclosure: I’ve never had a Go Macro bar. However, I have had ProBars – lots of them! They are delicious and I find they really hit the spot post-workout.

UGo vs. Bearded Brothers – Full disclosure: I have yet to sample a UGo Bar – but I’m planning on trying one soon. Bearded Brothers are solid. They offer up some funky flavors that are definitely unique! However, the bars are a little on the pricey side. I’m taking a leap of faith in Round One – UGo!

Lara vs. Picky – Lara Bars are awesome. So are Picky Bars. These are actually two of my faves, which makes this a tough first-round matchup. Lara takes the win because they are simple, non-GMO and relatively cheap!

Second Round

Raw Revolution vs. ProBar – These are two of my favorite post-workout bars. With that being said, some of the ProBars have a bit of an overprocessed taste to them. You won’t run into that issue with Raw Revolution!

UGo vs. Lara – Like I said, I have yet to try a UGo Bar. Since it is unknown, I can’t give it the win over a powerhouse like Lara. With that being said, check back soon for my review of the UGo bar!

Third Round

Raw Revolution vs. Lara – Raw Revolution has a slight edge on texture and flavor. Lara has a slight edge on price. If I’m trapped on a desert island and I can only have one of them for the rest of my life, I want…

    Never had RR, need to look into them. Lara bars are good – tho I heard they aren’t as clean and healthy as they claim. Need to research that.

  3. Jesse looooves Picky Bars; I prefer Larabars.

  4. Thanks for this! Since I live in Switzerland I don’t have access to many of these brands. Still, I like to try to keep up with all the great vegan products coming out of the US, and I’ll definitely keep an eye out for Raw Revolution.
