Performance nutrition has finally taken a cue from wine and cigars: energy-bar-of-the-month clubs. A small collection of upstart companies will send a monthly care package—­often personalized to your sport or taste preferences—directly to your door, eliminating last-minute grocery-store runs and giving you the chance to sample a range of different items. Here are the best we’ve seen.

Kona Kase
Each box comes with a selection of bars, gels, and granola, as well as nutrition and training tips. $15 per month.

YouBar
With its VIP program, you get biweekly, tri­weekly, or monthly shipments of 12 ­energy bars you create yourself from more than 50 ­ingredients. From $38.

NatureBox
This monthly package, which changes ­regularly and includes items like honey mesquite almonds, fresh vegetable chips, and whole wheat raspberry-fig bars, makes healthy snacking a cinch. $20 per month.
