    Design your own PowerBar!

    http://youbars.com

    You even get to choose the name.

    It's a fun idea, I guess, but they're like $40 for a box of 12.

    If I'm paying nearly $3.50 per bar, they'd better be willing put print, "No really, it's not a turd" on the wrapper.

    I want a custom recipe. Cranberry, Apricot, and Catfish. That makes a great name as well.

    Brilliant business model!

    I get to do the work of designing the flavors, testing to see if they taste good or not, and I pay them for the privilege.

    its actually a good idea. unfortunately, i have better uses for 40 dollars.
    primarily, buying TWO boxes of tried and tested PowerBar. even if they do taste disgusting...

    A nice idea for a gift, maybe

    Or if you already have your $15,000 bike and need something else to spend on.

    No beets?

    Do a special request. I bet they'd do it.

    There's no meat choices - I'd try a beef and orange, or perhaps teriaki (sp) chicken.

    I'd rather take the $40 bucks, go to the local hippie co-op, get the ingredients and do it myself...

    Hey, don't forget the S&H charges. Only $59 if you live outside the US and Canada!

    With shipping it's about $48 for a dozen. Nothing like $4 bar to choke down.

    Also no option for artificial colors. Man, if I'm going to pay that much, I want the bar to match my kit.
