  1. Hi Brad! In your food wars video you recommended to NOT buy agave syrup. So why use it for the energy bars? I personally love the agave syrup but after watching your other video I might exchange it for maple syrup or raw honey.
    I usually put it into my breakfast fruit salad … should I switch to stevia/sukrin alltogether?

    thx for your videos! 🙂
