I was happily surprised when a package of Tram Bars arrived in the mail last Thursday, just in time for my mountain adventure in the Sierra Nevadas. I stashed them in my pack and decided to try them out on Saturday during my lunch at Long Lake, along the Bishop Creek Trail.
TramBars are the product of Kate Schade, who came up with the idea after spending full days on the ski slopes and trails of Wyoming’s Tetons.
I am always looking for lightweight, packable energy bars – and most importantly, ones that taste good!
Do Tram Bars Taste Good?
|Tram Bars & Grizzly Bars: Tram Bars and Grizzly Bars are one in the same – just 2 different names. They are packed with a mix of organic oats, honey, peanut butter, raisins, dried bananas, and lots more! What I like is that they taste like real food, no gooey or processed texture. Plus they are easy to digest. Thumbs up from the Hiking Lady!
What my friends said (yes, I generously share my snacks): “Sweet and tasty. Definitely fills me up!.” “Tastes like a yummy peanut butter and honey sandwich. I like how I can see and taste the oats and other real ingredients!”
|Caz Bar: This is the latest product in the Tram Bar lineup. The Caz Bar has a definite kick – in addition to the yummy ingredients such as organic coconut, honey, and raisins, there is masala spice! I found the kick to be a little overwhelming, and my hiking companions were mixed on it too. One loved the kick – “It tastes like Indian food, and I love spice!”, and another described it as a “curry flavored granola bar”.
Tram Bars and Grizzly Bars are a great choice for trail food. They are packed with calories and fat, which is exactly what you need when you’re hiking. Remember, that hiking burns 408 calories per hour in the average person! One of these little bars could even serve as a meal replacement – I wasn’t hungry all afternoon after eating one Tram Bar!
