While the mouse dissolving, caffeinated, carbonated, high fructose corn syrup tour may want to you think otherwise, all athletes know that you’re only as good as the food you put in your body. That’s why a box of Perfect Bars makes the perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season. With some Perfect bars the next time your giftee heads out for an all-day shred, they can slip a Perfect Bar in their pocket or backpack. Then, when everyone else is headed in for lunch, they’ll keep charging while snacking on an all-natural, gluten free, and non-GMO snack bar that’s loaded with good stuff (and not one single bit of refined sugar). It’s a difference they’ll noticed from the first bite.

The bars are available in seven flavors including: lite cranberry crunch, lite almond acai, carob chip, fruit and nut, peanut butter, almond butter, and vegan almond coconut. And, while each has a slightly different flavor profile, with the exception of the lite flavors all of them pack in about 300 calories. The lite cranberry crunch and lite almond acai use puffed crisp rice to keep the calorie count in the 200 range. In addition, more than twenty superfoods such as kale, spinach, celery and others are hiding inside the bar in a powdered form.

With all that inside, it’d be easy for the bars to taste like a dirty hippy smells, but they don’t. Instead, the bars taste like fresh peanut butter or almond butter mixed with a little honey and milk—because aside from all those ground up superfoods that’s basically what they are. Though we would have liked to see one or two flavors of the bars sporting a influx of oats for a slower-release of carbohydrates on a sustained effort, for the most part the Perfect Bar really was just that.

Sure they seem simple, but after a few weeks of eating a Perfect Bar for lunch the shreds on your christmas list will be hard pressed to go back to any pre-packaged energy bar that they’ve eaten in the past. You can find Perfect Bars online for about $20 for a box of 8 (or 20 bite-sized minis) at shop.perfectbar.com or in the refrigerated aisle of your local health food grocer.
