Netrition.com has the bars - both the natural with the Stevia and the others. Plus, you can buy one at a time if you want to test drive a few.

Pricing is good too. Shipping is only $4.95 no matter how much you buy.

I buy my Walden Farms from them and I'm taking the Alive vitamins and get them there too.

I've placed many orders and are very happy with them. I live in Conn. and get my order the next day or day after.

They are AMAZING!! Seriously the best thing I've eaten on IP. Totally felt like a treat. Big chunks of cookies and little pockets of cream. And because they are new, they are super soft even at GNC. No microwaving necessary.

Are there ANY bars out there that would be unrestricted? I'm going to be traveling a bit over the next couple of months and would love to keep things as easy as possible.

Two of the quest bars sit right on the fence between restricted and unrestricted.
Some people use them as unrestricted.
Some people don't lose if they do that.
Each of us is so individual!

The two are the strawberry cheesecake and the chocolate/peanut butter.

However there is a thread started by someone who traveled for business a LOT. You may find some useful ideas in it (oh, I see you've already visited it)

I usually have a bar every day at 3:30. Tried cookies and cream today and it was yummy- it even seemed like little oreo chunks inside! I put it on my porch in the sun to get soft first. Will definitely be buying more! Stats look restricted to me because of carb count.

Where's the cheapest place to get these? I get mine at the health food store and they are 2.50 each. I've spent a fortune.

I stock up when GNC has them on special.

Regularly 2.99 each (2.84 with Gold Card) but they run a buy 3 get 1 free and I wait until the first week of the month for a $10 coupon so they break down to about 1.88 per bar.
