As far as protein bars go, these work out to be pretty good value for money. They come in at just under a pound a pop and pack 19 grams of protein too; which is pretty respectable although there are bars out there that contain 25 grams or more. The ingredients too look good with the flapjacks being made up of a 36% oat blend.
Taste wise, they're good too. They're a little sweet for my taste but I like that they have a soft and gooey texture rather than a teeth crackingly hard one. They're nice and moist and also benefit from being dipped in white chocolate, leaving a thin coating along the bottom of the bar - not unlike the yoghurt coating along the bottom of Alpen cereal bars (if you've ever had them).
The box arrived pretty battered. Torn and falling apart in fact and it didn't matter. I was expected to have a box-full of bars that were reduced to crumbs, but because the flapjacks are soft and chewy, they all survived the trip through the Royal Mail sorting office even if their display box didn't.
Overall I think these are a good, tasty source of protein that is welcome in my lunch box anytime. In fact, I'd go so far as to say, PHD's Flap Jack is a 'berry' good bar - Ho! Ho! Ho! boom-boom! Thank you ladies and gentlemen I'm here all night...
