    My wife prefers the bars chilled so they are a little less soft. I like them at any temp.

    Your wife prefers hard bars?

        • Hot damn. That is some good work!

          I am thinking of giving IF another try. I've been working out for 4-5x a week for the 6 weeks and have lost about 5 lbs (I've gained some muscle too). I'm down about 13 from last Sept. Ideally I need to lose another 15-20. I've been doing mostly CICO for diet, but maybe I can handle a normal 16-8 IF schedule?

            • You guys way overhyped these Built Bars. Some are ok, even above average for a protein bar. But delicious? Hardly. And some are downright gross. Texture is not great, but I can tolerate it.

              Raspberry Cheesecake is just awful. Legit disgusting. Salted caramel is just ok. Cherry Barcia is decent. Double chocolate is the best I’ve had so far, perhaps because it leans into being bittersweet as opposed to trying to be yummy.

                I've been meaning to post pretty much the same thing. The texture is a little odd but not a dealbreaker. The best I've had so far was Coconut Almond. Cherry Barcia was decent. Of the ones I've tried so far, I'd put Mint Brownie, Cookies 'N Cream, and Raspberry in the next tier. Salted Caramel was really disappointing. Raspberry Cheesecake was the first one I tried and it was terrible - good thing I bought a full box of them!

                Based on all the praise for these bars around here, I figured I must have eaten or drunk something beforehand that was reacting unfavorably to that first bar. But after having tried several of them I now realize that they just aren't that great.

                Every Qwest/Kirkland protein bar I've had tastes better than any of these Built Bars.

                Edit: It also took them nearly three weeks to deliver the bars. Delayed dissatisfaction.

                • I.... don’t love them either. Won’t repeat.

                  • Well to each their own. I love them and will continue to enjoy. I really dislike pretty much every other protein bar I have ever tried from Kirkland to Quest.

                          You could address it to "That Big House in Alpine" and it'll get there.

                          • I think Mint Brownie is my favorite. Followed by Cherry Barcia, Coconut Almond, then Raspberry. Cookies N' Cream is solid. Salted Caramel (the first one I had) is one of my least favorite, with Double Chocolate coming in dead last for me.

                            • As of yesterday morning, I'm down 86 pounds. Four pounds in 2 weeks is a great fortnight for me at this point.

                              A week ago, I decided to cut out some of the sugary treats I've been slowly letting myself eat more often, and the results have been great. Even though I have not exceeded my daily caloric intake, I think my body is excellent at turning sugar directly to fat.

                              In five pounds, I will be lighter than I've ever been as an adult.

                                That is amazing. Way to go.
