As the name implies, No Cow bars are non-meat, non-dairy protein bars for people extra careful about what goes into their bodies. The list of what No Cow bars don’t have in the ingredient makeup is impressive: no gluten, no soy, no dairy, no GMOs and very low sugar (1g). Compare that with the 20g of protein each bar contains and you have yourself a workout bar winner. Let’s break it down.

 

The Taste

No Cow surprisingly don’t have that gritty protein taste that can make even juice smoothies taste chalky. The base of the bar is a brown rice and pea protein blend mixed with antioxidant-rich cacao. Pea protein doesn’t have a strong taste, so the bar mostly tastes like the flavoring with a hint of chocolate.

 

The Flavors

There are eight standard flavors of No Cow bars, including Chunky Peanut Butter Bar (the OG), Chocolate Fudge Brownie Bar, Carrot Cake Bar, Raspberry Truffle Bar, Mint Cacao Chip Bar and more. If you’re new to No Cow, judge the bars by the Chunky Peanut Butter. You’ll be able to tell if you like the taste of pea protein bars from that original flavor, and expand your options from there.

 

The Price

A box of 12 bars can be purchased online for $29.99 with a monthly subscription option available.

 

The Coolest Part

The brand was started by an 18-year-old fitness enthusiast when he realized the protein bars he ate would give him horrible stomachaches. He searched for non-dairy protein bars low in sugar and couldn’t find any — so he made them himself. Who doesn’t love a good success story!

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
