They're kind of like what I imagine space food is like. Real dense, hard to chew, in a shiny wrapper.
But they're loyal. They are readily available at just about any grocery store I shop. Everyone knows Power Bars. I remember a friend of mine adopting a baby from South America. She spent two weeks there handling the adoption process. She was determined not to get the runs, so she packed a bunch of Power Bars. She got the runs anyway, but I digress.
See, I really like those Clif Z-bars, but I have trouble finding them, and when I do find them, I notice the price has gone up. So, I'm relying on my loyal but not so pleasurable to eat Power Bars.
I figure I need the healthy fuel. I'm going to foray once again today into the land of Christmas shopping. Nothing too strenuous. Just half a Power Bar's worth.
