My well-documented love for smoky fragrances is rivaled only by my lifelong lust for smoky foods, so I’m thrilled that the latest trend in protein bars (another personal obsession) is that cooked-over-the-open-fire taste. Kind’s Strong & Kind Honey Smoked BBQ bar reminds me of BBQ potato chips—except it’s good for you. And the Bison bar from Epic tastes like my old childhood favorite, the Slim Jim.
