When your skin's solar chargers burn out and you can no longer draw your energy from the sun's delightful rays, you're going to need a dependable backup. Today's Groupon will power your limbs without requiring you to install a battery pack where your appendix used to be. For $20, you get $42 worth of customizable, organic energy bars from Element Bars, Inc. As the winner of Best Natural Meal Replacement Energy Bar from Bestcovery, Element Bars are made from premium ingredients that steer clear of saturated fats, refined sugars, and difficult-to-spell additives that sound like they belong more in laundry detergent than in food.
Inspired by the periodic table of elements, the elements of the five Planeteers, and the Elements of Style, Element Bars give you the creative thrill of building your own bar online atop a foundation of nut-buttery chewy oats and flax, oaty toasted oats with honey, crispy rice and soynuts, or virtually fat-free date puree. With this groundwork laid, add dried fruits, such as apricots, cherries, and blueberries, before going nut-crazy with whatever cashew-almond-pumpkinseed-soynut combination sets your imagination afire. As you add sweet honey, chocolate chips, or agave syrup to omega-3, whey protein, and fiber boosts, the site's progressive nutritional fact chart will break down exactly what fuel you're using to power your chewable energy rocket. It's fun to play around and mix and match, but if you're just cramming any and/or everything into one bar, Element Bar may offer its own recommendations before you check out. You then get the privilege of naming your one-of-a-kind creation (up to $3 per bar when you buy a dozen). Your bars will be sporting that moniker when they arrive at your door in a hand-packaged box of 12.
Get exactly what you want from your energy bar without the preservatives that make packaged bars such a stale, cementish bore. You can only get a single Groupon, so design your energy bar carefully. Using just the right amounts of walnuts and SunDrops should provide enough energy to extend your lifespan by centuries. And if movies have taught us anything, it's that unnaturally long life has no conceivable downside.
Your Groupon cannot be used toward shipping costs. This Groupon will be available for redemption starting 6/2/10.
