I think Clifbars are the best tasting energy bars out there. They also have a lot of fiber, so watch out.
I also like Balance Outdoor bars. They are the same as regular Balance bars but without all the chocolate/caramel stuff that melts. I fact, I think Balance energy bars are a better source of energy with the whole 40/30/30 thing. They just don't taste as good as Clifbars.
I used to be a fan of Powerbars, but I can't stand their taste anymore, or their chewiness. Powerbar Harvest bars are a little more palatable, but not a good as Balance bars.
I've seen a couple people talk about homemade energy bars using things like honey, granola, and such. I'd like to see a good recipe for one.
I'm sure there's a website out there with a comparison chart or something. The July issue of Bicycling magazine had a comparison chart in it for a wide variety of energy bars that they tested. I bet their website has a link to it: http://www.bicycling.com/
