The protein in KICKBAR® Energy bars is inherent to the nuts and some fruit. To provide more protein in our bars, we’d have to add ingredients like soy protein isolates, or other processed sources.

WILL A KICKBAR® FREEZE OR MELT?
If placed in the freezer or outside in cold temperatures, the KICKBAR® will become firmer but will not freeze completely.

The optimal temperature is at room temperature to enjoy the scrumptious taste of KICKBAR®
