Before you jump into my taste-tested and ranking of the best RXBar Flavors. Permit me to tell you what RXBar is exactly.
RXBARs, according to the creators are whole food protein bars made with egg whites, dates, nuts and natural ingredients. Every rxbar also claim that they are for extra nutrition, breakfast-on-the-go, or a little something to get you back up after exercising. But most of us can admit that we would eat these bars without a single push up. This is mainly because these bars are simply delicious. They are also very healthy as they contain no sugar, no gluten, no soy, no dairy, and no GMO. Each bar contains 12 grams of egg white protein, 4 grams of fiber, and 200-210 calories.
Opinion Before the Taste Test On the Best RXBAR Flavors
Before writing this review and undergoing this experiment, I had not tasted every flavor of rxbars, I had tasted merely the best five of the available flavors made with various ingredients such as my favorite chocolate chips. This is mainly because every single time I had to get to get to the grocery store, I felt I had found a favorite amongst them- or so I thought. Before carrying out this little contest of discovering the best rxbar flavors, I was a huge fan of the coconut chocolate flavor amongst every flavor out there. To me, I simply did not see how any other could beat it. And in addition, because I am not so experimental when it comes to what goes into my mouth, I was contented to pour out all my love on RXBARs coconut chocolate. With the way it combined my two favorite things in this world; cocoa and coconut and so, I felt like I had found not just the best rxbar flavors but also my box of treasures.
However, for the love of science and possibly, out of curiosity, I went ahead to the grocery store to buy as I decided to discover how all the flavors tastes and what ingredient such as egg whites combinations tastes best to merely see if there could probably be something that could come close to my beloved coconut chocolate bars. I was looking for a second favorite bar. You must understand that the way I see it, this was a biased experiment. My views were skewed and I did this merely to be able to say I had done it. I had already decided that nothing could come close to how the coconut chocolate flavors tastes. And so, my journey to self-discovery began… There are 13 flavors of the RXBARS currently available. Two of these are seasonal bars, although. However, I was only able to get one of the seasonal bars but got all of the normal bars. So all in all, to determine the best rxbar flavors and what they taste like, check out the list of the 12 RXBARS that was tested.

Best RXBAR Flavors of 2019: 12 Tasted Tested Flavors
All of the twelve bars were individually tried and were brought individually before an experienced panel comprising of my tastebuds. The RXBARS list will be ranked from twelve to one, twelve being the least favorite to one being the best or most popular.
- RXBAR, Mint Chocolate – Protein Bar,
I really do not know whose idea it was to combine mint and chocolate this way. I mean why not just choose chocolate without mint. On this list of best rxbar flavors, This mint chocolate was the hardest bar for me to taste. I did not feel I’d like the combination of chocolate and mint or what they might taste like. Every time, it reminds me of the cheap mint flavor sweets I never liked as a kid. I never liked it in any food. I do not mind mint; I have nothing against it, but I certainly do not want its tastes anywhere near my glorious cocoa. Luckily, the mint flavor is on the light. It does, however in a way give your breath that minty smell. I thought I would feel like I had taken ice as is normal after taking mint sweets but thankfully, that was not the taste. They actually managed to balance it to a manageable level and it felt like something I could want once in a while and might decide to buy.
The mint chocolate RXBAR, like a typical mint sweet, was even tougher and chewy than your average bar. If you really like chocolates and how it tastes like, you would definitely want this. It had a lot of chunks of gooey chocolate chip in it. The bar actually tastes like peppermint oil and so every mint lovers would like this one. If you like mint flavor, you may like this mint chocolate bar, but for me, it was a no-no. I’m a firm believer that some things should in no way mix and one of those things is mint and chocolate. One should always be without the other. Overall, if there was a world apocalypse that could be saved by my eating only RXBARs forever, humanity is doomed.
- RXBAR, Coffee Chocolate – Protein Bar
When I got to this bar, I was impassive. It was around the third one I tasted. I am not a fan of coffee, sorry, not sorry. I just don’t fancy what it taste like. This tastes like coffee and I am more of a tea person and you would see me drink ten teapots if I’m allowed to. However, I do like several coffee sweets. I really did not know what to expect with this bar. I felt like the combination would be superb and make it actually better, since I could actually fathom tasting them together. It smelled a lot like coffee when I opened it. If you like coffee, the smell will be glorious and you should definitely buy this I assume. For a tea lover, it was “meh”.
As expected it tasted heavily of coffee. What I didn’t expect, however, it tastes little of chocolate. Don’t get me wrong, there were RXBARs signature chocolate chips, but to me, they were subdued by the coffee. However, I would dare to say that this was not just because I find the smell of coffee strong; this was just a collab that didn’t go well. RXBAR did not find that balance. It was sweet anyways. And you may still love it a little if you are a coffee fan
The chocolate chips were compromised and didn’t have the same heavenly taste. I didn’t like the way this chocolate chips bar tastes like and I doubt any person would and so with a heavy heart (and a happy tongue) at an opportunity missed, I moved on to the next bar.
- Apple Cinnamon RXBar
To me, cinnamon has always been an ‘okay’ spice. And not one of those rxbar I would buy often, although, It can be glorious when used in sparse amounts on snacks. It gives off quite a nice smell if used in proper amounts. However, I cannot stand what it tastes like when it is overused. Cinnamon just isn’t right for excessive use. It’s a little more like those perfumes created to be lightly used- they smell good unless you spray them more than four times.
This bar has a higher tone of apple, to me; it tastes artificial apple. Luckily, the cinnamon is light and no overwhelming. That would have made it the worst bar to me. This bar reminds me of what a bad pie tastes like. Even after eating it, I had to pause for a while before moving on to the next bar because the flavor would not leave my mouth. It’s not horrible but it definitely isn’t good. This is another bar I would not like to eat. I only tried to eat half of the whole thing but nothing more. The weird taste and texture was just too much to bear.
Overall, I am quite sure with the way it tastes like, that it is nobody’s favorite bar. If I were to wake up the next morning and see all Apple cinnamon bars disappeared along with the formula and the creator, it’s all good as I wouldn’t shed a tear.
- Maple Sea Salt RXBar
I absolutely adore maple. It is one of the wonders of creation. Before this, I had never had a bar made this way before. I just had to buy this at the grocery store. I opened it with a lot of excitement. Because of my preference, I felt it would be a great bar and I was right, I liked this bar, the way it felt and tasted. I willingly tried finished it and I think I can say the sun shone a bit brighter. This was the bar I had to buy after chunks of chocolate mint so it was a welcome change. If you do not like maple however, you may not like this bar. I didn’t really like the texture and I was left with the sticky sweet taste of maple after eating the bar and this is why it’s not ranked higher. If you do not in any way adore maple, when you buy this rxbar, you may get tired of it really fast.
Another reason, however, that it is not higher on the list is due to the cashew pieces. The bar has pecan and cashew pieces which I found very annoying. Overall, if you tried this, it tastes like maple syrup so it is a great bar if you love maple syrup. But even then, I don’t think I’d willingly buy more than one bar.
- Chocolate Chip RXBar
Do you love dark chocolate chip biscuits mixed with cookies? Yes? Then it will make you love how this bar tastes and you should definitely buy this. To me, it’s a really good chocolate chip cookie in bar form. It has large and glorious chunks of chocolate. It was really good but I admit when I tried the chocolate cookie, I was expecting a little something extra. I like t
the fact that the makers got to make the cookie sugar level right. It is not too sweet or too gooey. And I wouldn’t say It’s that good. These are deductions from my taste experience.
Another thing I like is the absence of artificial-tasting flavors. It uses only natural vanilla which makes it healthier and better tasting. This is a really good bar and I would definitely recommend this cookie bar and would willingly take it again. The way the cookie tastes like chocolate, it is definitely may be one of the better ambassadors of the RXBAR brand. You should be eating this if you love chocolate.
- RXBAR, Pumpkin Spice – Protein Bar (Limited Edition)
The pumpkin spice RXBAR is a limited edition one. It is seasonal and only available at specific times of the year. It really appealed to my Halloween spirit to have a whole RXBAR created after the season. Luckily, I was able to get it. If you’ve ever had pumpkin spice, you should know what this tastes like before you buy and what you should know what to expect.
If you are a pumpkin spice aficionado, you will no doubt agree with me that the key to pulling the pumpkin spice flavor off is in moderation. When it is used too much, the spice may become overwhelming and annoying. it is best to use in moderation. RXBAR was able to pull it off, luckily. It is beautifully balanced and delicious. Also, the pumpkin spice is not overwhelming and really not so good as it doesn’t leave an annoying aftertaste in your mouth. Think pumpkin pies with a little extra.
Also, It is definitely something else that will make me look forward to the Halloween season. It is worth the wait though so stock up when it is available. If you have the littlest like for the way pumpkin spice tastes, you will like this bar if you tried it. It has a really great texture to be honest and even if you are not a fan, you may still enjoy it.
- RXBAR, Peanut Butter – Protein Bar
If ever aliens wanted to end the human race and decided to do it through adulterated peanut butter, I sadly admit that I would probably be one of the first to die. Peanut butter is one of my favorite things to eat. And so you can imagine my elation every time I see and have a bar that is fashioned after chunks of peanut butter. I am ashamed to state that I did not open this wrapper neatly (think a dog biting shoes) but it was definitely worth it. The bar is dry and crunchy. And the texture is absolutely phenomenal Writing about it makes me want another, that’s how good it was. This peanut butter reminds me of a bad pie.
Of course, it has a hint of salt which you can use to make yourself feel better about consuming much sugar. If this bar could be totally melted, I wouldn’t mind pairing the resulting peanut butter with bread. It has a balanced taste, a natural flavor and a great smell. It is one great bar with great texture that does not have a weird taste or bad after-taste that you find in some bars. However, I felt it could be better. There as a little something missing which I could not point out.
- Blueberry RXBar
I’m a sucker for berries. They are healthy, contain antioxidants, and taste amazing. Blueberries are my favorite berries. They are always a treat to me and I eat them as often as I can. I simply love this fruit. Tastes really good I had high hopes for the blueberry RXBAR. I felt like this is probably one that could probably be my favorite after coconut chocolate and I was very happy anticipating the texture and tasting this blueberry. It didn’t disappoint. Although I would have preferred a more natural flavor, it is still a great bar. It reminds me a lot of blueberry flavored sweets more than an actual blueberry.
The flavor is not as original, it is somewhat mixed but it is still a very nice bar. It is very sweet; make no mistake about that. The blueberry does leave a sickly sweet feeling every now and then but only if you eat more than one (I know because I tried). Overall, it was a nice attempt; a really nice flavour. It could have been better but I’ll take what I can get especially when it is this good.
- Mixed Berry RXBar
If you have had those mixed berry candies that use to be available in the early 2000s, you’d have had a trailer of what to expect. It was good, not just good; spectacular. It blew my mind. I took my sweet time eating this bar. I savored it; it deserved to be, and lastly, I sighed. What makes this bar so good? And what makes it the rxbar to buy? Everything! It’s not too sweet and it contains real fruit. It has strawberries, cranberries, and even raspberries. I was in heaven for a moment when I took this mixed berry. This is the sort of bar you can binge it and worth making our top four rxbar If you’re feeling guilty, tell your body its actual fruit. The smell of the mixed berry is also amazing. If it could be perfume, I’d wear it. It has its own unique taste and texture. This is probably because it has multiple berry flavors. The mixed berry is a wonderful bar in truth. Its flavor is a real deal and you should definitely eat it.
- Peanut Butter Chocolate RXBar
Do you remember the peanut butter RXBAR? Well, RXBARs decided that it was not enough to make us tear the wrappers off their protein bars “animalistic-ally”. No, they want us to weep at the sight of their bars. And they succeeded… almost.
With this bar, I realized that the missing puzzle piece I couldn’t find in the other bar was ‘dark chocolate chunks’. It combines two of the best flavors in the world and produces art that Leonardo would have been proud of. This bar definitely deserves a spot in the top three. If you are looking for something you can chew easily without any crumbs, this peanut butter chocolate is it. Without any doubt, dark chocolate chunks, truly makes everything better when you eat them.
- Coconut Chocolate RXBar
Coconut chocolate was truly my previous favorite flavor. And this is a top choice If you have not had this bar, you have probably not tasted RXBARs true power. They can take over the world with stuff like this. I like coconuts – a great fruit. Coconut flavor combined with chocolate chunks, they are of course, one of my favorite fruits. My favorite chocolate bar has a mixture of chunks chocolate and real grated coconut so it is no wonder I like this bar. It has a wonderfully chewable texture and has bits of almonds, cashews, and chocolate chips.
Usually, I do not like cashews but in this bar, the flavor is amazing. It is not too sweet and it is healthy as it has natural flavoring. This is one of the few bars I actually use to supplement my breakfast. It is actually very crunchy as well. If you like, pair it with a glass of warm milk. That combination can achieve world peace.
- Chocolate Sea Salt RXBar
The fact that this bar emerged as the winner is a testimony of how good it actually is, an absolute top choice. I went into this competition biased. I have always loved the coconut flavor and was quite sure nothing could compete. This bar proved me wrong. It was with curiosity that I opened the wrapper. I like all the flavors with sea salt wrapped in chocolate chunks and so I was really curious as to what the flavor would be. I had no idea my life was about to be changed.
Carefully, I opened it and took one bite and viola… I swore allegiance to RXBARS. The chocolate sea salt flavor is everything good and kind in this world and we are not truly worthy of such beauty. It is just as well that these did not come out when I was a kid. I would have been that one kid that wanted to be a Chocolate sea salt RXBAR. Somehow, they managed to combine sea salt with the chocolate chunks bits and produce perfection. The chocolate chunk pieces are heavenly. Overall this is not just the best RXBAR, it is the best combination of chocolate chunks and anything I’ve tasted.
