Your New Favorite Protein Bar Has Been Hiding in the Pharmacy Section

Few things bring me more joy than pursuing the snack aisle at Walmart. I’ve learned to never do so on an empty stomach, otherwise, I come home with a trunk full of snacks suitable for a group of teenage boys. There’s one snack, however, that I feel zero guilt about purchasing—or eating. In fact, I feel pretty darn good about it. I mean, it lives in the pharmacy section, soooo how much healthier can you get?

Meet Oatmega. 

If you haven’t heard of Oatmega Bars, today’s your lucky day. If you have, I don’t know what you’re still doing here. You should be nomming on your box of Chocolate Peanut Crisp bars.

Here’s the gist: Oatmega makes good-for-you protein bars whose flavors are inspired by some of your favorite desserts and sweets, like brownies and Reese’s Cups. Each bar contains 14 grams of grass-fed whey protein—which means the cows that they get their protein from are fed what they’re meant to be fed: grassNovel idea, right?

Yeah, Whey.

Beyond the grass-fed whey, Oatmega Bars are packed with lots of other high-quality ingredients, which is why they taste as good as they do. That and the fact that they’re sweetened with monk fruit. It’s allegedly 200 times sweeter than regular sugar, which basically means more bang for your buck. For example, one Oatmega bar contains only 5 grams of sugar but tastes like it has 1,000. I don’t question it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So Healthy, They Had To Put It In The Pharmacy Section

If I ruled the world, these bad boys would live in the snack aisle or the candy section at Walmart. But, until then, you can find them in the pharmacy section next to the supplements. (I mean, I understand *why* they are in the pharmacy—at the end of the day, it’s a good-for-you protein bar…it’s gluten-free, non-GMO, and contains your healthy dose of Omega-3’s. But did I mention the tastes-like-dessert thing?) 

If you’re not on the Oatmega-train, it’s time. If you are? Again, not sure what you’re still doing here. Are you out of bars? Are you sick?? Are you insane???
