Most of us are on the move these days -- and with nutritionists telling us to eat smaller portions spread throughout the day, grabbing an energy bar on the run can seem like a good idea. That is, until you eat one that that tastes so bad, it makes skipping a meal seem appetizing.

Nothing can match sitting down for a real meal -- but with bars for protein, bars for energy, meal replacement bars and snack bars, it is hard to know what's best for you, let alone what you'll be able to choke down without gagging.

Check out our list of on-the-go bars that you'll want to grab. You're welcome.
