They were something different! I've had them before and love them but the box I received from Amazon was non-edible. They were hard as rocks.

I bought these at Trader Joe's in the past and love them so was very disappointed at the product when I received it. By Science in Sport.

I gave it a 5 star because As an avid crossfiter, my body needs all the extra energy It can get. My goal always when I pick supplements is on taste, and of course the actual energy it gives me during my workout. I gave it a 5 star because I pretty much like all the flavors, and it was a great pre workout snack I could grab on my run to crossfit.

I thought about giving only 4 stars, but that is only because I feel they are a bit on the expensive side. They are all tasty I got the mixed package , we have them in our car as emergency food, but finished them in no time! The reason I gave only 4 stars is because of the steep price.

I also like that it is not as sweet as some.
I have been eating Quest bars for awhile but this is nice as a snack rather than a meal replacement as a quick breakfast or an after school snack.
I like the crunchiness of the cacao nibs. It is a bit too bitter for my son's taste but I like them. They are a bit pricey though. My only other "con" besides the price would be that you have to check your teeth after eating one. Sometimes I get a few black specks in between. They're not too sweet, which is a big plus for me. They are soft and chewy I like the texture with crunch from the cacao nibs. These work well as a replacement for a cookie or brownie when I want a treat and don't want a sugar overload.

As soon as I eat this bar I start feeling like myself again within minutes. Coffee UCAN bars are delicious! I am a marathon runner and mother of two kids.
After reading some reviews, complaining of the taste, I was hesitant, but decided to give it a try anyway. I must say, they're delicious! I am also pleased that these are plant based and do not contain whey.

Here is a list of all the ingredients for the natural bars: Chronic alcohol abuse taxes the liver, causing accumulation of fatty deposits, which become inflamed, leading to alcoholic hepatitis.
The American Liver Foundation states that 35 percent of heavy drinkers develop this condition. If drinking continues, healthy liver tissue is gradually replaced by non-functioning scar tissue, a process known as cirrhosis. Abdominal swelling and tenderness, loss of appetite and nausea may characterize alcoholic liver disease.
Obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes are risk factors for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. The disorder generally follows the same course as alcoholic liver disease, however patients may be non-drinkers. The National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse advises that many people with NASH do not have symptoms of fatigue and upset stomach until liver damage is advanced.
Losing weight, eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise can help you manage NASH. Regular medical care is also needed to control the effects of this disease. The entire family of cholesterol-lowering medications known as statins can damage your liver. Regular blood tests can detect changes and avoid the development of an associated muscle wasting condition known as rhabdomyolysis.
Symptoms may include stiffness, swelling and tenderness in the large muscles of the legs and back, dark urine, rapid heart rate, fever, nausea and vomiting. My mom took me to the doctor, and I was immediately sent to the emergency room because I had all the classic signs of appendicits. The doctors confirmed I did have appendicitis. Unfortunately, that happened to be a day when there a lot of emergency surgeries including 4 other appendicitis cases.
I got to the emergency room around My appendix had burst by the time I went into surgery. My anesthesiologist must have messed up the dose of anesthesia because I ended up regaining consciousness while I was still on the operating table. The surgery was finished, but it was not time for me to be concious.
It was wierd because at first I heard this girl screaming, then I realized that I was the one screaming and I was screaming because I was in agony.
The pain I was in before the surgery which was a 10 on a scale was nothing compared to the agony I was in at that moment. I was completely aware of everything that was happening around me, but for some reason I could not open my eyes or move any part of my body. I felt the doctors swing me from the operating table to the stretcher.
That made the pain even worse. I screamed in agony as the doctors wheeled me over to the recovery room. When I got to the recovery room, I started coughing a hacking cough that nearly ripped opened my stitches.
When the nurse finally gave me morphine, the pain subsided, I was able to open my eyes, and I could move again Thank God I was not paralyzed. It was a slow recovery.
My wounds took about 6 weeks to recoveer. I was benched for the rest of my track season which sucked because I had just been cleared to return to track after a 6-month injury. I also became sickly after the surgery.
I got frequent colds, and I was constantly fatigued. I thank God that I lived to tell this story. I asked him what did he eat and did he need to use the bathroom. This went on all night. I described his pain to the ER doctors that he felt like a worm with 1, teeth was eating away at his stomach.
We was told to go home get clear liquids, and it will clear up with in a few hours. I went home, got him some clear liguids and watched over him.
I watched my baby suffer. They immediatly took him in and after running alot of test and taking blood, they discovered his appendix had ruptured sometime within 24 hours. When they opened him up the toxic was so bad that they couldnt close his stomach, and he stopped breathing, and was on life support for 10 days. All of this was 8 days before his 19 birthday. I was told to make final arraingments because he wasnt breathing. But thank God for his Grace and Mercy, he saw it fit and in his will to give me my baby back.
We just celebrated his 20th birthday, because his 19th he was on life support. I wouldnt wish this on anyone. But thank God for having the final say. I am still recovering from my ruptured appendix.
It could kill you. Exactly one month ago today I felt pain on the right side of my belly like none other I had ever experienced before. I was having my period and thought that maybe I was experiencing some form of cramping that I had yet to come to know in this lifetime.
No sleep came to me as I moaned through the night. The next day my partner and I decide I needed to go to Urgent Care. Make our way there at about 2: I wonder if my appendix would have ruptured if I had been seen by a doctor 36 hours earlier? Knowing what I know now I would go straight to the ER and bi-pass all the rest that only seemed to keep me from getting the help I needed.
I had to have drains put in a week after surgery due to infections in the place where my appendix once was and one on my uterus. Recently About 3 months ago. I started feeling the pains as well. After about 2 days of these pains, I went to the hospital. They took my blood sample, the doctor poked around. And then prescribed me expensive pills to buy, and told me to come back in 2 weeks for an x-ray. So next day I get up and walk to get these pills at local pharmacy.
I went home and took these pills and was not feeling any better the next day. And decided that Its time to go back to the hospital. Which case I was asked to take blood samples, and a different doctor telling me I had High white blood cell count. And then preformed x-ray on me. The Doctor told me, I had a build up of alot of Feces, And then I felt pretty embarrassed that i was filled with feces.. So he prescribed me a laxative, which then I went to the doctors and got a laxative.
He told me in 5 days I should be better… 5 days later.. I went back to see yet another different doctor. I told her that im pooping, but im not pooping enough to get better.
So she gave me a stronger prescription of laxative to get. Then In a few days I should feel better.. I go back to the hospital.
And then A new doctor, Poked me, and pulled her hand away really quick at my right stomach she asked me if that hurt, and i said yes. She comes back about 30 minutes later and tells me I have ruptured appendix start me on IV treatment. So for 2 weeks I was admitted. Then Released without any surger…. And even to this day, Its still in me, and Im scared.
My specialist has been on holidays this and that and just waiting to see him is awful. It aches but it isnt a strong aching feeling just that it kinda aches.
And my poop has not been the same since, and with blood in it, which my specialist knows now. So im still really upset that, there really is no ambition anymore to help me. I hope i dont have permanent damage,. Wow, that sounds extremely dangerous. My fiances uncle just died in his early 40s from his appendix rupturing.
I had no clue that this was such a serious complication. He was in pain for a while and like most men, he shrugged it off as him straining a muscle.
By then the damage had been done. He also had his stomach pumped from the puss that formed in it. After two weeks of being in the hospital,the worse news comes on Monday, Labor Day just the other day , that our beloved, favorite uncle had passed away. They beleive he had went into cardiac arrest probably found him when they were doing rounds.
I figured that since he made it into the hospital that he would eventually be fine. After reading all the stories, I realize how serious this really is. Wish I knew this before and was able to communicate it to him long before the rupture. Woulda, shoulda, coulda never changed the course of history….
Harlem USA…You will be missed terribly and you are loved! Wednesday we brought her to the ER due to severe stomach cramps… diagnosis was stomach flu and specifically not appendicitis.
From Tuesday until Friday she is laid out on the couch unable move from extreme pain and I have to carry her to the rest room where she can throw up and have diarrhea. It kills me now looking back at what she endured.
So on Friday we take her to a different doctor and just like the other stories on here: IV, CT scan and they find the ruptured appendix. This is my little girl! I just hope all goes well from here on out. It started first though, with me burping uncontrollably to a point where I was feeling frustrated and tired.
Overall it was a scary incident cause the tremendous pain, diagnosis and surgery were all done under 24 hours. It all goes o show how fast things change. So good luck to all, and stay safe.
I found this site looking up this problem because my doctor told me after pressing down on that part of my stomach, that if it started hurting esp. Hard to believe you can be taken away from your family suddenly for something that many of us -and certainly i, would have ignored as something else. I was there for something else but i guess he noticed it was inflamed. My mom and i have decided to go in early tomorrow.
Hope i get taken care and everything goes well. My son is 33yrs old and like most of you suffered with serious stomach pain.
He thought the pain was stomach poisoning and treated the simptoms with various over the counter medications. His CT Scan showed his appendics was intact.
When he was finally taken to surgery at After surgery we were informed the appendix had burst. I am reading this blog to find out what we can expect in the days to come. I am so thankful my wonderful son is alive and doing better by the hour.
From this point forward I will trust my Lord and Savior that my son will recover and lead a productive full life. Prayers and best wishes to you all. I was taken to the ER and was told I had a blockage in my left kidney. They put stints in it and performed surgery. Two weeks after all of that with my kidney, I started to feel sick. My stomach got HUGE! I went to the ER again and they asked me if I was pregnant!!
They took CT scans and found out my appendix has ruptured 5 days ago and it was encapsulated. The anti-biotics I was on from my kidney surgery saved me. My appendix is still in me.
Should I go to a different doctor for a different opinion or is it safer to keep my appendix in me? Will it rupture again? Thank you and God Bless. I woud say go to a different doctor. I went through the same thing a couple years ago, but mine was ruptured for two weeks and they did have to cut me open. I thought I had the flu. After a week straight of vomiting I went to a walk in clinic. They said it was the flu and sent me home! The next day I was half dead and had a fever of a hundred and four.
Finally, at 6 pm they got me into surgery, saying it would only be an hour to an hour and a half, it ended up being almost four hours. I had an abcess the size of a grapefruit in my abdomen, pertonitis infection of the lining of the stomach , and was septic. I was in the hospital for eleven days. I had early pnumonia and had to have a tube inserted through my nose to my stomach to get rid of all the nasty infection. The surgeon said its amazing I lived.
A lot of people have gone through so much pain, I hope you all are able to figure out your health problems. I was had pain through out my stomach and due to this I didnt just feel pain on my side.
At first i thought it was gas pain or food posioning. I took some tums and tried to go to sleep. Then i started vomiting. The pain would not go away and then increased as the night went on. I vomitted about three times during the day. I finally could not take the constant annoying pain and woke my husband.
I went to the er at 12 midnight. After being seen and CT scan was done — by this time it was 3: I just had surgery on saturday. I prayed that my appendix didnt rupture because i knew the comlications that would follow.
