Performance Fact

Enjoy one of these bars after training to initiate muscle recovery. The bars provide a nice ratio of protein and carbohydrates to replenish fuel used during training and prepare you for your next session. The composition of the bars make them great to take on the slopes or ice in the winter, as they don’t get hard and chewy at freezing temperatures!
