brands we love: barebells
A midday bite, a post-workout refuel or maybe a sweet treat after dinner–protein bars are quite the versatile packaged snack. But we can all agree, when get a protein bar that has that chalky aftertaste, that same bar might very well find its new home in the bottom of the trash bin. Looking to step up your protein bar? We've got just the brand...say hello to Barebells. We asked the team at Barebells to give us some insight into how they got started and what flavors you might be seeing next. Here's what they had to say.
