The other morning you may have noticed my Green Smoothie received a little amp up fromYouShake Berry Bliss …I’ve never been a protein powder fan so I thought.. I don’t know about this. Well I was wrong, the stuff had 14 grams of protein for 110 calories plus some great taste…and I could read all the ingredients! I seriously can not wait to get some more or make my own mix with spirulina!
I have now also tested out a YouBar…and my friends let me tell you it was a yummy…and again I can procounce the ingredients! I have really come to love putting only the best fuel in my body and this is excellent.You have the ability to customize your own bar which means you can make it as low cal or high cal as you desire based on your needs. The YouBar that I taste tested earlier was about 140 calories and felt like a decadent treat (like a brownie really!), but many others are close to 200 calories and thus better for a post or pre-run fuel up….unless you are out of PB like me and then it’s just good anytime! You can see from the picture that they are not terribly big…but they are very dense unlike a granola bar.
YOUBARS were created by a runner…containing peanut butter…HELLO DO I EVEN NEED TO TELL YOU MORE!! In case I do, here are some answers from Anthony (owner and RUNNER!)How did you come up with the ingredients for the build a bar? As a PB fan I looooove that it’s the base!
My mom and I came up with our original ingredients from the nutrition bar recipes my mom has been making for years. Then over the years our customers and requested different ingredients so we just add them to our ingredient list. We are always looking for new ingredients to add to our website.
When did you add shakes to your product line?
We added You Shake to our You Bar product line in September 2008 and it became an instant hit! We are the first protein shake that uses organic freeze dried fruit to flavor and sweeten our shakes which make them taste great and really healthy.
Are you still running marathons?
I am still running marathons. I am actually going to run the LA Marathon in May this year. I am also going to do the LA Triathlon for the first time in October.
