Ok, I was comparison shopping today at vitamin world and the guy there told me starting next week they are having a huge sale on a bar called Pure Protein. 6 bars for $1.50. I picked one up to compare and WOOF! They are some bit higher in sodium, a lot lower in carbs, but they have 18-20 grams of protien per bar. Would this be more like a meal replacement than a lite? The lites have 8-10 g of protein.

you need to compare sodium, sugar and fat as well

I looked on calorie king and they seem to have around 250 cal each...that alone would knock them out of contention. You need to keep it as close to 180 as possible, because after 2 bars you are doubling the difference. Those bars would make you get well over 100 calories too much each day.

Thanks chicks - the bar I bought for a sample is this:
180 calories vs 170 for lite caramel crunch
6g fat vs 3.5g for lite caramel crunch
180 mg sodium vs 75 for the lite
19 g carbos vs 30 g for the lite
18 g protein vs 8 for the lite

I guess it falls in between a lite and a meal replacement shake - it doesn't have enough calories or carbs to use as a meal replacement. sigh... it was such a good buy too!
