Very good value for money & taste
on 8 December 2013
When it comes to protein bars, the first things that you must realise when you compare them to ordinary chocolate bars is:
a) They contain a significant amount of protein which makes them chewy
b) They contain better quality ingredients and have less sugar which means they don't taste as nice
c) They are a lot more expensive
Now thats is out of the way, let's gets back to the review.
I have tasted nearly all the protein bars out there so I have learnt what good value is when I consider ingredients, taste, price, flavour & texture.
These bars are hazelnut flavoured flapjacks and they taste surprisingly nice. They have sufficient calories (328 Kcal per bar) which makes them a good meal replacement or a protein bar to bulk up your daily protein requirement (22.3g protein per bar).
They also contain CLA, Probiotics and creatinine (In smaller amounts).
Nutritional information per 100g
Energy = 1528 KJ
Protein = 24.7g
Carbohydrate = 49.0g (5.0g sugars, 17.5g polyols
Fat = 10.8g (3.9g saturated)
CLA = 1.14g
Fibre = 3.5g
Sodium = 0.032g
Creatinine Monohydrate = 1.14g
Probiotics = 154 million cultures (Bacteria name = Bacillus Coagulans)
When purchased on their own, these bars are expensive, however when purchased in a box of 12,they offer very good value for money at just over a £1 each.
If you are thinking about buying these bars just to add calories to your meal plan but only plan to eat them when you are home, it would be much cheaper having this type of ingredient in powder form (Meal replacement powder, not protein powder). It would cost you less and you would be getting more calories, carbs, fat, protein and fibre (You could adjust calories accordingly to suit your requirement. Less powder added = Less calories).
However if you want to increase your calories whilst on the go (Bus driver, Electrician, Mobile fitness instructor, salesman etc) and you do not have a canteen etc to make a powder then these are perfect.
I personally use them just after my gym session as I have a 45 min drive home, when I go on a hike / climb or when I am in work sitting at my desk when I know I won't have time to eat lunch properly.
In summary: A nice tasting, nice textured protein / meal replacement bar with plenty of healthy calories.
Given the price, taste & ingredients compared to rival products, these bars offer very good value for money.
