Built Bar – Protein bars done right

“Disclaimer: I received three boxes of Built Bar protein bars to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find and write race reviews!”


I have been working really hard on trying to eat better but I have a serious sweet tooth and finding something healthy to satisfy that as well as having it taste good was hard. I was given the opportunity to try out Built Bar protein bars so I thought why not? What have I got to lose? I was sent a box of mixed flavors which included 2 of each of the following flavors: Coconut, Banana, Mint Brownie (my all time favorite), Black Cherry, Salted Caramel Chocolate, Double Chocolate Mousse, Orange, Vanilla and Raspberry. They also sent a box of Coconut Almond and a box of Peanut Butter.

You can either order a mixed box, a box with all one flavor OR a build your own box where you can choose from several different flavors. Each box contains 18 delicious bars.


There are a lot of different brands of protein bars out on the market but most either have no taste, taste like sawdust or are chalky, but NOT Built bar. These are seriously the best tasting protein bars I have ever tried! They are a bit chewy but that doesn’t really bother me at all. I also threw some in the fridge and the freezer and that seemed to help a bit with the chewiness. In fact, one day when I was grabbing one out of the fridge at work one of my co-workers said “oh, built bar, one of our other co-workers eats those” So, you can bet I ran right over to her and gave her the discount code and she was so happy to save some cash on a product that she already loves. She has been eating them for some time now and has nothing but good things to say.


From a hike in the woods, to the gym, or even a mid afternoon snack at the office, built bar provides the protein and taste that my body needs and wants. Most of the flavors have 15g of protein and only 110 calories. There are a few flavors that have 18g or 20g of protein and 130 to 180 calories (depending on flavor).

Built Bar is made with whey protein isolate so it is not vegan. They have no artificial preservatives, are made with natural flavoring and no coloring. Each bar is made with high quality dark chocolate which is the source of all of the sugar in the bar.

  1. I’m loooving the Coconut Almond flavor right now! I bring these bars to the YMCA with me, in my purse on weekends when I’m out and about, and I keep a stash at my desk at work!
