Caveman Bar

T.Farthing

I recently came to the realization that I was buying into the paleo diet with the caveman bars I was eating.  The description denotes they are “inspired by our ancestors’ way of eating,” which is hilarious because they are extremely processed and covered in chocolate.  I also doubt primitive humans were consuming almonds or cashews, but who knows.  Their logo even depicts a muscular caveman in a power stance holding a spear, which emphasizes the myth behind what our society perceives as “cavemen.”  If our ancestors spent their time aggressively hunting animals as most people think, why is there no meat in the bar?  (Because ew).
