Product Review - RX Bars

About the Company from the website:
In 2013 bffs who were eager and broke started a business the only way they knew how: the old school, gritty way. They called B.S. on protein bars and started RX in their kitchen and initially sold them door to door and bar by bar. They describe their bars like eating 3 egg whites, 2 dates, and 6 almonds. With no B.S. What’s inside. What isn’t. They think it’s everything you need to know. They describe themselves as not being investors, flavor scientists, or focus groups but instead are industry outsiders with a few healthy ambitions, the usual insecurities, and all the other stuff that keeps them human. They make protein bars with no B.S. and they are real upfront about it.
