No, Ihaven't. I don't frequent specialty stores very often, with the occaisional trip to a Gen Nut. store as an exception. The local supermarkets carry a good variety of nutritional bars, including BBAR, TWLB, Met-Tx and the others. They also have the 40-30-30 powders, but not the drinks yet. I'm interested to try them, and see how pricey they are. IMHO, the biggest downside to the bars are their price. They sell at a premium to powerbars and PR bars by TWLB in my area. They taste good, but good enough to warrant a 20-30% price premium. I don't think so.

Also, any ideas out there as to projected demand for BBAR's products. Some nutritional supplement companies seem to be experienceinga slowdown in demand, and new competitors seem to be joining the field all the time. Is BBAR destined to get crowded out in a niche market, or will they really make the transition to a more mainstream product, and so sustain high earnings growth? Thoughts?
