Meaghan: ALL RIGHT. IF YOU’RE FAN OF PROTEIN BAR, DO YOU HAVE A BRAND YOU KEEP BUYING? YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A ONE-BRAND KIND OF PERSON, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING, PHARMACIST DOUG? YOU REALLY DON’T. Meaghan: YOU SHOULD BE A ONE-MAN WOMAN OR A ONE-WOMAN MAN, BUT NOT IN THE CASE OF PROTEIN BARS. I’M PREACHING THIS ENORMOUS SECTION WE HAVE. Meaghan: IT’S QUITE A LARGE SECTION. IN THE RETAIL WORD, 27 FEET IS TWO FOOTBALL FIELDS. 50 DIFFERENT BRANDS OF PROTEIN BARS. Meaghan: WHO KNEW THERE WERE SO MANY? WHO KNEW? LOOK AT THE PICTURES FOR US ALL TO SEE. THAT’S NOT EVEN HALF. OF YOUR PROTEIN BAR CHOICE. Meaghan: THAT’S CRAZY, DOUG. SO DO YOU HAVE SOME THAT YOU’RE A BIG FAN OF? DO YOU HAVE FAVORITE? WHAT’S GOING ON? MY FAVORITE MOVES AROUND. IF I’M SEEING A NUTRITION CLIENT, WHATEVER THEIR NEEDS ARE, MY MOOD, WHAT I’M DESIRING, SO THERE’S SO MANY CHOICES. SO I DON’T HAVE — LIKE RIGHT NOW, THIS THUNDERBIRD IS MY FAVORITE, REAL FOOD, IT’S NOT LOW CALORIE, YOU KNOW, BUT IT’S HEALTHY CALORIE. Meaghan: LET ME ASK YOU THIS QUESTION, CAN YOU EAT TOO MANY OF THESE? LIKE YOU CAN BUT THEY CAN BE BAD FOR YOU? THEY CAN BE DETRIMENTAL TO YOUR DIET? ABSOLUTELY. THIS IS PLEASURE. THIS IS PLEASURE. THIS IS NOT LIKE A MEAL SUBSTITUTE. BUT THERE ARE EXTRA PROTEINS SOME YOUR CANDY BAR DOESN’T HAVE PROTEIN. THIS IS A PROTEIN BAR. Meaghan: THIS IS LIKE A PROTEIN BAR WITH AN ADD HEALTH BENEFIT. THIS ISN’T SOMETHING YOU NEED TO BE CONSUMING OR ADDING TO A MEAL, RIGHT? NO, IT COULD BE YOUR DESSERT IF YOU CHOOSE THAT. Meaghan: SO YOU HAVE DIFFERENT GOALS, TAKE US THROUGH SOME OF THE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF SOME OF THESE. THIS IS WHAT IS THE GREATEST THING RIGHT NOW ABOUT DRUG EMPORIUM SOME IF YOU’RE LOW CARB, WE HAVE AN OPTION FOR THAT. Meaghan: THERE’S A KETO BAR. UH-HUH. Meaghan: YOU KNOW WHICH ONE? NOW THAT I ASK? HIGH-PROTEIN BAR GREEN, LET’S SEE, GRENADE. Meaghan: GRENADE. THIS ONE? HIGH PROTEIN, LOW CARBS, NO SUGAR, ORGANIC SUGAR, NO — SO HERE’S NO COW. THAT’S NO DAIRY. Meaghan: UH-HUH. THE KIND BAR IS ALWAYS SUPER TASTY BUT A LOT OF SUGAR. Meaghan: A LOT OF SUGAR IN THAT ONE. EVERYTHING, YOU KNOW, VEGETARIAN. WE HAVE GREAT VEGETARIAN CHOICES. NO COWS. Meaghan: AREN’T THEY ALL VEGETARIAN? NO. NO, NO, NO. WE HAVE SOME WITH EGGS IN THEM. Meaghan: I SEE, I SEE. THAT’S SUPER HIGH PROTEIN. HERE’S A VEGAN. I LIKE THAT. PISTACHIO NUT IS GREAT. Meaghan: THIS ONE? OKAY. SO WHEN YOU’RE GOING INTO IT, YOU JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR INTENT IS AND YOU’RE VERY SPECIFIC WITH WHAT YOU WANT. OR NOT. THIS IS OUR ONE, YOU WALK INTO THE STORE, IT’S A DESTINATION. IF YOU LIKE DESTINATION SHOPPING SOME YOU DON’T HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU WANT. I BROUGHT YOU A COUPLE THINGS. Meaghan: WHAT DID YOU BRING ME? I LOVE GIFTS. CLIFF AND PURE PROTEIN. YOU CAN TRY ONE OF THESE LARA BARS. I DON’T CARE. I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION. Meaghan: WHAT? DOES YOUR PROTEIN BAR CHOICE CHANGE? Meaghan: THIS IS MY FAVORITE. I LOVE A CLIFF BAR. THIS IS MY OTHER FAVORITE. CAN I CHALLENGE YOU. Meaghan: TO CHANGE? YEAH. Meaghan: I’LL CHANGE FOR YOU. I WANT TO TRY THIS ONE, THOUGH. BECAUSE THIS… NEW. Meaghan: THIS IS KETO, RIGHT? IT’S HIGH PROTEIN. Meaghan: THIS STILL HAS 20 GRAMS OF CARBS. THEY ARE HIGH CARBS. Meaghan: SO YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. YOU DO, BUT IT’S NOT ALL BAD, LIKE CARBS AREN’T ALL BAD. Meaghan: AS LONG AS YOU’RE WORKING OUT AND BURNING ALL THOSE CARBS. DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR DOUG? MAYBE YOU WANT THE FIND A NEW BAR FOR YOURSELF. GIVE HIM A SHOUT OVER AT THE DRUG EMPORIUM. YOU CAN FIND HIM OVER ON FACEBOOK. DOUGIE, THANK YOU, SIR. WE APPRECIATED IT.
