Brand

Founders Chris Frank and Jason Winn started Bonk Breaker out of necessity. Yes, this isn't out of the ordinary, as this is how most companies get their start, but it is really what happened.

The two guys were athletes and always on the lookout for the perfect product for those who want great nutrition while leading an active lifestyle. They were searching for something that tastes amazing while still using real food with all-natural ingredients. After a long search and not finding what they were looking for, they took matters into their own hands. They started cooking up their own bars made of fresh materials, right from the kitchen of their apartment. They shared their bars with others who fell in love with them. These people became their first customers and would pay for the bars. They decided from there that they should produce these products and sell them to others who were on the search for something like it.

They got their name from their active lifestyle. If you are into endurance sports, or even in your everyday life, if you hit a wall, it is called bonking. These bars are going to help you get over that hump and push forward, hence the name Bonk Breaker.

Uses

The Bonk Breaker Energy Bar is the perfect snack for those who lead an active lifestyle. It is perfect for keeping on you for those times you need a little energy boost. A lot of consumers eat them when they are training or participating in endurance sports. They are easy to grab and munch on. They aren't rough on your stomach so that they won't interfere with your workout at all. The best part, they taste great.

If you are heading out for a long-distance run or a bike ride, then you can toss one or two of these in your pack or pocket for a quick and easy bite to eat. Additionally, they make a great addition to your gym bag or even stashing in your car or office for a quick snack.

If you need a little something to get you through the day to your next meal, or you need help and an extra boost of energy, then grab one of these bars, and you are good to go.

Calories

Since there is a wide variety of flavors available for the Bonk Breaker Energy Bars, you can expect them to have different calorie counts. Each bar has anywhere between 180-260 calories, making them ideal for a snack. Since one whole bar is a serving, it makes tracking your calories super easy. This is especially important for those who are tracking calories in vs. calories out for weight loss or training.

Since they have a relatively low-calorie count, they won't make a suitable meal replacement. If that is what you are after, then there are far better options out there for you that can meet your needs. However, if you want a hearty snack, then this bar has you covered.

Ingredients

Since there is such a vast variety of flavors that you can choose from when ordering the Bonk Breaker Energy Bars, you can expect there to be various ingredients. They are, of course, going to vary from bar to bar.

One thing that is consistent throughout all of the flavors is that they only contain between 9-12 ingredients. They stick to clean and simple ingredients in all of their bars. All of them are names that you can pronounce and recognize, so you know that you aren't putting anything artificial and unnecessary into your body.

Make sure that you are looking at the package of whichever flavor you choose to get an accurate account of what is inside of them.

Some of ingredients include (but aren't limited to) tapioca syrup, gluten-free oats, almonds, cashews, peanuts, organic dark chocolate (organic chocolate liquor, organic cane sugar, soy lecithin, organic vanilla, organic cocoa butter), white chocolate chips (sugar, whole milk cocoa butter, nonfat milk, natural flavor soy lecithin), salted caramel toffee pieces (butter, cane sugar, sea salt, citric acid, soy lecithin), brown rice syrup, tapioca flour, honey, crisp rice (sugar, salt, rice flour, calcium carbonate), flaxseeds, pea protein, peanut flour, sea salt,

The Bonk Breaker Energy Bar is just that, an energy bar. According to reviewers, the snack can provide you with a decent amount of energy to keep you going throughout the day. Whether you need a quick bite to hold you over until your next meal or you are pushing yourself at the gym, when you need energy, grab one of these bars.

The all-natural ingredients help give you body the right vitamins and minerals that you need to provide yourself with a little extra push. It is something that consumers rave about in the comments section.

Food Allergens

If you have food allergies or sensitivities, then it is important to know what it is that you are putting into your body. You want to avoid certain foods that could cause an allergic reaction or make you ill.

Make sure you are checking out the labels for whichever flavor you choose, as they are all slightly different. Bonk Breaker Energy Bars are available in options that are dairy and gluten-free. There are also some choices that are nut-free so you can enjoy them even if you have a nut allergy.

All of the flavors are gluten-free so you are safe no matter which one you choose. The dairy-free options include the almond butter and honey, apple pie, blueberry muffin, mint chocolate chip, peanut butter jelly, and peanut butter chocolate chip. If you have an allergy to nuts then, unfortunately, your only option is the blueberry muffin.

Flavors

There are numerous different flavors of the Bonk Breaker Energy Bar that you can choose from. Customers love that they have such a large flavor pool to pick from when they are reaching for a snack.

You can pick from mint chocolate chip, cookies and cream, coconut cashew, banana cream, almond cherry chunk, salted caramel, caramel macchiato, peanut butter, and jelly, almost butter and honey, apple pie, blueberry muffin, peanut butter chocolate chip, and salted caramel.

If you aren't sure what flavor you are going to like the best, you can always opt for a sampler or variety pack. It comes with six if the flavors (banana cream, coconut cashew, salted caramel, almond cherry chunk, peanut butter jelly, caramel macchiato) so you can try them and pick your favorite. Unfortunately, if you want to sample one of the other flavors, then you will have to purchase them separately. Another great energy bar we recommend you try is the Health Warrior Chia Bar, containing similar flavors.

Taste

Customers adore the taste of the Bonk Breaker Energy Bars. Many have noted that they taste like real food, which is always a bonus. You won't get that bland or cardboard taste that you generally find in lower quality snack bars. Since they are made with minimal ingredients and real food, you can be sure that they will taste fantastic.

Many consumers reported that they actually taste like the flavor they chose. For example, the peanut butter jelly bar actually tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and the coconut cashew bar tastes just like coconuts and not artificial flavoring.

Sometimes it can be hard to find a great tasting snack bar that is also good for you. People can appreciate that they will get both of those from the Bonk Breaker Energy Bar. The real ingredients and lack of artificial flavors ensure that you're going to get a great taste, no matter what.

Consistency

If you are eating something, the way it feels in your mouth is almost as important as the taste. If you can't stand the consistency, then you won't be able to enjoy the snack.

That said, there is a lot of mixed feeling about the consistency of the Bonk Breaker Energy Bar. Some customers don't mind it at all, and others have even stated that it is excellent. They indicated that they didn't feel too grainy. In fact, people stated that they had a similar consistency as Clif Bars.

However, there are a decent amount of reviewers who were not impressed. They stated that the bars were a bit on the dry side. Others noted that it just felt weird in their mouth, and they didn't like it. Even though the taste was excellent, they couldn't get past the consistency of the bar.

Keep in mind that they have different consistencies depending on the flavor you choose. Some of them are chewier than the others, and you might find some that are a bit dry. It is all going to depend on what it is that you are ordering.

Servings

The Bonk Breaker Energy Bar has a serving size of one whole bar. This makes things so much more convenient when you are trying to keep a close eye on what you are putting into your body. There are some products that break it down into more than one serving, which can be a bit misleading when checking out the nutritional facts. Thankfully, you aren't going to have that problem with this bar.

One bar is about 2.2 ounces, which is great for most consumers. However, there are a few who felt that it was actually a bit too big. If you are biking and stop at a light for a few seconds, it can be hard to grab one of these and munch on it really quick before it is time to go. If you need something to eat super fast, then you might not be able to get this one down in time. That said, if you aren't on a time crunch, then this is going to be perfect.

Value

The Bonk Breaker Energy Bars aren't cheap. When you compare the price per bar of these ones compared to some of the competitors, they are a bit steep. No, they aren't the most expensive ones out there, but there are some that are far cheaper.

That said, they are made of all-natural ingredients that taste great. That in and of itself makes them worth a little extra money. Most customers are content paying this price for something so great.

One thing to be careful of, however, is that they don't have a long shelf life. You might not want to stock up too much as they might expire before you can consume them all. You may want to consider buying one box at a time so you don't have to throw any out because you didn't eat them fast enough.

Bottom Line

If you are searching for an all-natural and excellent tasting snack, then you have come to the right place. The Bonk Breaker Energy Bars give you everything that you need to keep you going, even when you are feeling drained.

Customers love the taste and the wide variety of flavor options they can choose from. There is bound to be something out there for everyone, depending on your taste preferences. Not everyone enjoys the consistency of the bars, but that doesn't seem to be a deal-breaker for most.

Yes, you are going to be spending a bit of money on these bars, but most consumers think that it's worth it. They taste great and give you energy. Most would recommend them to others.
