I have never had the Vega bars, but I already know my answer. :) I would enjoy the Vega's more for health and ingredients and I might give the nod to Builders for taste. But there are really only two main factors that I consider in a bar. How much protein does it have per 100 calories, and how cheap is it. If it's more than $1.25, I'm not buying it. I can't imagine ever seeing a Vega bar that low, but a man can dream!

Will pass on the vega bars---didn't find them too tasty. Their proteins are the best, tho. and with Fallen horse on price per bar, per grams of protein. Clif builder bars, especially the one with peanut butter, are the bomb! The problem is the caloric content...too high for my body and not worth the calories for the measly 20 grams at 270 kcal.

Did you try the Sport bars? Chocolate Savi Seed???? You must not have because that is the tastiest protein bar I have ever had. Almost like eating a truffle.

Nicholas plenty of the online cycling websites sell them

I used to buy gels etc with no dramas. Don't expect to pay $1.50 though... Poor Aussies, we get ripped off!

Forward..I did. I am just not a bar person, and like jungleinthefrunk, wel,the clif bars are like candy,...so I don't do either. I am all about food, it's my biggest problem...quantity. I am little so I get fat before I get big. Will give another try, tho, when I Am in a bar mood again. Thanks.

Thanks! I know hey, always picking on the Aussie! As soon as i have the money I am moving to America; it seems much more vegan friendly than Australia (i.e. more vegan stores and vegan people, plus Fruits and veggies are cheaper).

Tell me about it! Moving back to Oz in 5 weeks and not looking forward to the increase of my food bill!

I'd say the major cities cater well for Vegans in Australia, but not so much outside. However I have found the same thing here... outside of the major cities, slim pickings to even find vegetarian meals.

I will definately live near the city then! Yeah prices are pretty bad, however bananas arent $13 a kilo now, they have gone down to about $5 a kilo.

i have confessed my love for gu gels and chomps before (i'm sure i've admitted eating both as a "snack" at one time or another), but i knew i'd need to find an alternative fuel source when i went sugar-free 4+ months ago.
