‘Best In Show’ Winter Gear At Outdoor Retailer (part II)

‘Bacon Eggs & Coffee’ Energy Bar — It sounds disgusting, we know. But two of our editors swear the ‘Bacon Eggs & Coffee’ flavor from PaleoBar is so good it’s worthy of an award. “You wake up in the wilds and you get a full breakfast, including coffee, all in one bite,” noted one of our staff.

The bar has 17 grams of protein and no preservatives or artificial sweeteners. PaleoBars makes it with real egg whites, real bits of bacon, and “just a hint of coffee.” ($3.99; available now at www.stevespaleogoods.com)
