This was a little funny to me. I’m not going
to mention the company name because it would
be totally unfair. It’s the brand of protein
bars that I have most preferred. Others have good
opinions of this bar as well – it’s definitely considered one of the best in
On the other hand, the nutritional supplement
industry has, most of the time, generally
not been known for good tasting products.
Some have been unbelievably awful, for
example, versions years ago of Twinlab MCT
Fuel (which tasted amazingly close to one’s expectations for toxic waste) and
allegedly-cherry-flavored predigested aminos. Or Weider’s notorious Anabolic
Mega-Paks, which had me feeling ill for almost an hour after taking. Overall the industry has improved a lot but still often there’s room for further improvement.
Anyhow, my girlfriend has a pet rat. Now,
I had never realized it, but actually rats
are great animals and quite good pets, far
ahead of say gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs,
and other rodents I know of, though certainly I have more preference for cats or parrots. This one is a good little guy. Anyway, I was eating this protein bar, one of the best tasting in the industry, and I figured this would be nutritious for him. So I went, “Treat-treat!!” like I do when giving him a treat, for example wheat bread, a flake of cereal, some chicken, or these vegetable wafers for rats, and he runs up all excited and gets a small piece of the protein bar. But he does not eat all of it though it is a small piece, and even drops it. This is a first: he’s never done that with anything. He’s like Mikey, he eat’s everything. I try again with another piece and he WON’T EVEN TAKE IT.
This is a sad commentary: when a rat will not eat the product.
Hopefully the Grow bars will do better!
