Every now and then I like to eat Special K protein bar (the chocolate peanut butter ones), especially in the afternoons. I'm wondering if anyone here eats them regularly. I'm trying to cut down on sugar and am not sure if I'm negating the benefits of the protein by consuming the sugar. They just taste so good and are filling!

Hi there! Nice to meet you!

It's great to know that there is a cheaper alternative that tastes just as good. I've been wanting to visit our Aldi, so I will definitely go and look for them.

I also eat the Big 100's but don't care for the peanut butter crunch. My favs are the crispy apple pies. lol

I have never heard of the Big 100s. I'll have to look for them and give them a try. The crispy apple pie flavor sounds very yummy!

I get them from Walmart where you can buy a box of 4 for about 6 bucks. While they are very high in protein (31g), they are also very high in calories (400) so beware if you are looking for low cal protein bars.
