    HOOAH! Bars Not Just for Troops Anymore
    Monday, July 11, 2005

    WASHINGTON — If it can give a welcome surge of energy to a U.S soldier in the Iraqi desert, then it should do the trick for a runner, a hiker, a third-shift worker or even an on-the-go mom. The Army even calls it "warrior-tested." The new HOOAH! Bar, an energy bar that has earned praise from soldiers, is now being distributed in U.S. commercial retail outlets and via the Internet. "The soldiers love it. Its performance is off the hook," said Christian D'Andrea, who with his brother, Mark, licensed the federally registered trademark HOOAH! from the Army for commercial sales last year. "But the other thing is, the war fighter simply liked it in terms of taste," he added. The bar is scheduled to hit major retailers this summer, including Wal-Mart, CVS, 7-Eleven and GNC, and a portion of the proceeds are going back to the Army laboratories that create food products for troops in the field.

    Something positive; slightly patriotic, about soldiers, and good for you! Strange that ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN missed this!

    I hope it tastes better than the 139 other foul-tasting energy bars currently available at your local gas station.

    I think they have been doing a commercial/news/commercial style format while Fox does the commercial/product placement news/commercial style. They were probably just covering the news at the time which is why they probably missed it.

    Clif Bars aren't bad. It's that METRx crap that tastes like a cross between dog sh!t and chalk dust. Powerbars are just candy.

    You never know. Were he indeed off the hook, it is entirely possible that he was simultaneously engaged in roof-raising.

    By the way, I'm glad the war is providing yet another avenue for crass commercialization...

    Cliff Bars are actually pretty tasty. They didn't pay me to say that either.

    At first I thought it was the Hooters Bar you are talking about.

    I've tried many, and those are the two best. Clif Bars have the additional benefit of containing ingredients that a person can pronounce.

    Clif Bars essentially taste like vegan cookies.

    I thought it said "Hookah Bars." I just figured the boys were having some fun overseas and wanted everyone else to as well.

    Maybe, military families can start seeling Hoo-ah bars to raise money for armor and stuff.

    Yeah, but if you're running a marathon or riding a century....cheese isn't going to be too good for you.

    Yeah, they've been planning to do that for a while. They're like a knock-off of Power-Bars. They also have "Hooah Water" that they would give to us when we were in the field. :)
