Review: SunWarrior Sol Good Protein Bars

We’re big fans of SunWarrior here at The Run Commuter, so we were excited when they sent us a sample from their new line of products – Sōl Good Protein Bars. I tested them out after a few of my morning 5-mile run commutes, instead of my usual post-run Clif bar.

 

Here are the main takeaways

  • High protein (70% – 90% more protein than a Clif bar)

  • Low carb (27% – 37 % less carbs than a Clif bar)

  • Low sugar (67% – 86% less sugar than a Clif bar) 

  • No leftover sticky residue

  • Easy to chew and dissolve easily in mouth

  • Not too sweet

  • Vegan

Additional Notes

The Sōl Good bars are pretty dense, therefore heavy. I recommend carrying 6 at a time to the office, which is right around 1 pound (0.45 kg). One pound doesn’t seem like much, but if you carry work clothes, lunch, and additional outerwear in your run commuting pack, the weight adds up quickly. 

They store really well in narrow, quick-access areas of the pack, such as shoulder strap pouches.

The low sugar content and easily dissolvable/digestible composition of the Sōl Good bars make them a great nutritional supplement for ultra running.
