As a high school swimmer with a severe tree-nut allergy, it was difficult to find a nut-free protein bar that I could eat after workouts. When I did discover one, it either tasted disgusting, was too sugary, or was full chemicals I couldn’t even pronounce. Because of this, I decided to make my own bar. I joined four other student-athletes and spent months researching and experimenting with different ingredients. After countless test batches, the five of us finally created a low-sugar, nut-free, high-protein granola bar, known today as the Viking Whey. Since then, we have been developing new recipes that meet other people’s lifestyles. We hope you enjoy our bars!

We’re five kids from Bethesda, Maryland, spread across the country at various schools and universities. As student-athletes who are constantly busy running to and from studying, training, and other events, we found it difficult to find a good tasting, quality granola bar with real ingredients and high protein. After countless test batches and copious research, we obtained a product that met our standards. Rather than being satisfied with our success, we continued modifying our bars, ironing out any small discrepancies to make the bars their absolute best. We are motivated to help other active people like us find a bar that fits into their busy lives.
Mind blowing. The idea is amazing and the bars are even better.
It was a good price and tasted as good if not better than the name-brand bars you would see in stores. The flavor seemed more on par with what was advertised than other brands.
I liked the protein bars the best for their texture in particular, but all the bars were very filling so it felt very worthwhile.
"I was in nirvana"
I would always experience a ModBar after a cold and dreadful swim practice that would extinguish my energy and make me hollow on the inside. After briefly basking in the ephemeral relief of a quick five minutes in the hot and steamy shower, I would feel my soul replenish as I would grab a ModBar out of my bag. The euphoria that encased my mortal coil as I ate the divine granola was liberating. Not only was my energy restored, it was lifted into a new stratosphere. My soul leapt and unbounded from my ecstatic body. I was in nirvana, Valhalla and heaven every time I would eat a ModBar...
Tasty, satisfying, healthy, and addictive.
