4. Kashi Go Lean Crunchy Chocolate Almond (Score 7.75/10)

Calories: 170, Fat: 5g, Carb: 27g, Sugar: 13g, Fiber: 5g, Protein: 8g Tasters gushed over the combination of simple flavors (Chocolate and almonds? Yes, please!) and the crunchy, crispy texture. One comment about the "delightful lightness" of the crispy rice base received rousing affirmation from the other tasters. Photo Credit: Kashi

3. Kind Blueberry Pecan + Fiber (Score: 8/10)

Calories: 190, Fat: 12g, Carb: 20g, Sugar: 9g, Fiber: 5g, Protein: 4g This energy bar is about as straightforward as a kick in the mouth (a delicious one, mind you). The simplicity of 10 simple ingredients shines through after the barrage of soy and whey-protein laden bars. The tasters gave the balance of fruit, nuts and honey five stars.

2. Snickers Marathon Energy Chewy Chocolatey Peanut (Score: 9/10)

Calories: 210, Fat: 8, Carb: 26g, Sugar: 15g, Fiber: 5g, Protein: 13g Arguably healthier than Clif, Snickers Marathon Energy was nonetheless cheerfully rated and described as crunchy, not too sweet and chocolate and nuts marries energy; this hit me in the spot reserved for tasty afterthoughts.

1. Clif Mojo Honey Roasted Peanut (Score: 9.75/10)

The city that never sleeps is the perfect location for fireworks and summer celebration. According to Travelocity, New York City is the number one destination for Independence Day travelers, Coney Island draws visitors with their Independence Day attractions and events. Those making the trip will see airfare at about $340 (which is below the national average) and nightly hotel rates of around $236. Photo Credit: Walmart Click here to see All of The Best Energy Bars

In the interest of science, I assembled a crack team of energy-starved guinea pigs for a blind taste test to separate the power wheat from the power chaff. We dove deep into the catalogues of Clif and Larabar to see which bars taste like mouthwatering cake, and which bars you'd bribe a dog to bury in the backyard.

Out of a 15-bar sampling of top sellers, here are our Top Energy Bars-and the one bar whose name we dare not speak (but we're A-Okay with writing it out).
