Recently, the packaging of the Zone Perfect bars has changed. However, that is not all that has changed. The yellow packages are not as nutritious. I believe that the Glycemic Index is also worse. I hope that my fellow Crossfitters will join with me and e-mail Barry Sears to tell him that we want the old Zone bars or something better. Do not be scammed by the new packaging. The new packages and the new bars appear remarkably similar to Hershey's Smart Zone Bars. I think the new bars also dropped the Omegas and are less natural.

Here is an example of the differences:
Old Bar New Bar
Vitamin E 150% 100%
Thiamin 45% 25%
Vitamin B6 200% 50%
Magnesium 15% 10%
Selenium 80% 35%
Molybdenum 70% 35%
Niacin 100% 50%
Zinc 50% 25%
Chromium 80% 35%

IIRC, Sears doesn't sanction Zone Perfect bars. Sears' bars are called OmegaZone.

Zone Perfect should still be e-mailed. These were amongst the most nutritious and best tasting bars on the market, and one of the most commonly available.

Michael, liked them but the protein is from the dreaded SOY! So you sort of want to stay away from regular consumption. They work ok in a pinch. The bars are probably are the same, just got caught over inflating %ages and had to re-label (this is just a guess).
