A high protein bar to increase lean muscle and strength.
The amazing Maximuscle Cyclone bars not only taste good, but pack a serious punch too. In fact they are oen of the strongest and most potent muscle building bars you can buy. Each bar delivers a whopping 23 g of protein, 5g Creatine, 1.5 g HMB (Enzymatic Metabolite of Leucine) and 2 g Glutamine, with a real dark Belgian chocolate coating and a soft fluffy centre.
Maximuscle Cyclone bars are an ideal alternative to powders to support your muscle building and strength goals, which when used in conjunction with your weight training regime, could increase your muscle size and strength.

Each bar has 213 Calories, 23g Protein, 16.5g Carbs.
These bars are IDEAL for a quick protein boost when on the go like at work.
If you dont like the taste, eat it fast and dont think about it as the bars are great meal replacements. If you REALLY cant handle the taste then just go back to regular chocolate and talk about how hard eating right is and making excuses.
As recommended by another reviewer just pick one up from the local supermarket and see what you think, before of course buying them in bulk.
Not sure whether there are two different types of 'Dark Chocolate' bars, but I bought some more from the local supermarket and these taste like a Mars bar. These are actually really good.
Well I dont know about that but ill give my honest opinion on them here..
Ive had a few bars over the years from the expensive to the super cheap (longsdale whey pro bars anyone?) And these Cyclone bars seem to be on the better end of the spectrum.
They are a fairly solid bar, like a thick milkyway or a light nougat texture, they have a good chew to them, my missus said they reminded her of a thick brownie or a cadburys fudge bar texture.
Taste....well.......I tried the chocolate mint flavour and honestly didnt think they were that bad, they are semi sweet and the overriding flavour to me was of cocoa, just plain unsweetened cocoa powder with a hint of peppermint, the chocolate coating was similar to cheap dark chocolate so also semi sweet.
They didnt upset my stomach although I never really seem to affected much by that anyways when I use protein products, and although the texture of the bar is chewey and a bit claggy it dosent leave you with a film of whey stuck around your mouth like some bars do, though they do stick to your teeth a little.
With 23g protein, 5g creatine, and HBA's they have a great formula for the price and are an easy eat.
Im unsure if the recipe has changed from earlier reviews but these bars ive tasted arnt in anyway "foul" nor are they the worst ive ever tasted.
I would score them a good 8/10
Box Quantity 12
These bars are perfect for the job, helping me meet my daily protein target and with an extra boost of creatine for recovery. They come in a retail box which sits on my desk and reminds me to eat one each day.
I don't understand the fuss and poor reviews based on taste. It's a thin layer of dark chocolate coating with a chocolate flavoured chewy bar on the inside. They taste great to me.
If you're buying this as a 'healthy' alternative to eating chocolate, don't. It doesn't compare nor is it intended for that purpose.
I have been eating Maxinutrition bars for the last 3 months.
Before that I initially tried the Quest bars as they advertised some really interesting flavours, however they mostly tested the same, and were frankly not enjoyable, with a consistency like bitumen!
As this was all part of a weight loss program I was doing I had stuck to the 'rest and recover' or 'lean definition' bars, normally cookie dough or dark chocolate. These were decidedly better than the quest bars, and based on nutrition appeared to be one of the best options out there, but even then I admit it took a couple of bars to get used to them. I normally nibble them slowly while drinking a lot of water, basically because they are quite dense, but in terms of taste they are very good.
I have lost over 8kg in roughly 4 months, through a combination of exercise, dieting etc. but I do have to give some credit to these bars as they helped curb my unhealthy snacking habits.
Anyway back to the point, now that I have reached my target weight I decided to try the 'strength and power' bars, which are the same dark chocolate flavour as the 'rest and recover' I had been eating previously. Yes the flavour is consistent, but WOW the density is much less, and overall these bars remind me of a Mars Bar, granted I haven't had a real Mars Bar in a while for comparison but these bars taste fantastic!!!!
I would probably have given 5 stars to the other Maxinutrition bars before, but now I have to down rate them to a 4 simply because of how much better this one is!!
I should note however that these only arrived in the post yesterday, so I haven't tested their effectiveness for muscle gains. However Maxinutrition have not let me down in the past and i'm fairly sure the added 5g of glutamine will help me see results.
