I was reading Philip Werner’s Section Hiker website the other day (Philip is seen on the right) my interest was piqued by his post from March that had PROBAR® compared to the Honey Stinger protein bar and the Amish Powerbar. What is an Amish Powerbar you ask? In Philip’s own words:
My Amish powerbar recipe contains two pieces of whole wheat bread, two tablespoons of peanut butter, and a tablespoon of honey. Simple and extremely cost effective. I wrap each one in it’s own ziploc sandwich bag and they stay fresh for 3-4 days.
While I can respect the cost savings and not to diminish my love for the PB&H on whole wheat, reading the above quote with a 3-4 day adventure in mind doesn’t really have me skipping down the trail.
I guess Philip and I aren’t so different after all because his May post revealed his secret vice – PROBAR®.
Like me, he’s addicted to PROBAR®, which is great. It’s great to have yet another outdoor adventurer who loves PROBAR®.
He’s an avid hiker and has a great website full of advice for those who are looking to day hike or to tackle sections of the longer trails like the Appalachian trail. Check it out.
