Bonk Breaker Energy Bars Product Review & Giveaway

When purchased my last pair of running shoes, I decided to browse my local running store's selection of new energy bars and energy gels. I came across Bonk Breaker Energy Bars (HERE). The name was obviously intriguing, since I was running a marathon in a few weeks and the flavors sounded amazing. Being a mommy, I've had my fair share of PB&J sandwiches and actually love them. So, a Peanut Butter and Jelly energy bar sounded fantastic! I also picked up the Almond Butter & Honey flavor.


I tried one for breakfast one morning and loved it (not as pre-run fuel). It kept me satisfied, when I paired it with a banana. And, it was totally yummy.


I contacted Bonk Breaker and told them that I enjoyed my experience. I was told that they were baking some FRESH ones that day and would be sending some to me the next day. Freshly energy bars?! Yum!


I received a few of the three flavors: Peanut Butter & Banana, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Almond Butter & Honey. They also sell Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Chip.


Each bar has about 250 calories and 35g carbohydrates and 8g protein. They are worth every calorie! They're a nice pre-run energy bar, breakfast bar or afternoon snack.



I had a PB&J Bonk Breaker Bar, fat-free yogurt and a banana before I ran my marathon earlier this month. It was the first time I had one before a run (which I know, you probably shouldn't try anything new on race day!), but my tummy had no problems and it kept me fueled. I even set a 25 min PR that day! I usually have trouble getting anything down on race morning and HATE chewing before a race. My gag reflexes are in full effect with my nerves. These were easy to chew and went down with ease.


I loved the Almond Butter & Honey bar when paired with a pumpkin spice latte! A great fall breakfast, before a short treadmill run.


The ingredients they use are yummy, high-quality ingredients. Just look at what's in the PB&J Bar:


Organic Rolled Oats, Brown rice crisps (brown rice flour, malt, salt), B -Breaker TM (Brown rice syrup, Natural crunchy peanut butter [peanuts, salt], honey), soy protein isolate, Blackberry jam (blackberries, pure cane sugar, fruit pectin, citric acid), flaxseed meal, brown rice flour, evaporated cane juice, sea salt.

  35. I have NEVER tried any type of energy bar or anything in the past. These however look heavenly. I've been scared in the past of the blandness I've been told all bars have. I was bummed when I went to the website and learned they are not retailed anywhere near me in NY! Bummer. i would LOVE to win this pack! I'd like to try to PB & bananna, PB & Dark Chocolate and Almond Butter and Honey!
