4.0 out of 5 stars Have acquired the taste for edible chocolate pollyfilla, 14 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MaxiNutrition Progain Mass and Strength Flapjack Bars - Chocolate, Raisin and Hazelnut, 90 g, Box of 12 (Personal Care)
I've been using the Chocolate hazelnut flavour version of these bars for almost a year now. Let's first be clear that's it's not going to taste like a flapjack. There are oats in there but they merely accompany the chocolate `pollyfilla'. There are actual nut pieces in there, which actually do taste good. And the chocolate is more light chocolate flavouring. There is an apparent coating of chocolate on the base but its taste is masked by the rest of the bar.

Although I discredit it as a flapjack, its actually not that bad as protein bars go. It's not too sweet and so isn't going to be sickly nor will it attack your teeth if you normally struggle with sugary food. It's not too dense and gooey so doesn't feel like its structurally pulling my teeth out to chew it. It's a large bar but I've never struggled to finish it, yet it leaves me feeling settled in the stomach and not hungry for a while after that. It's a fairly good protein dose for the size of the bar, along with small quantities of Creatine and CLA.

One of the reasons I continue to buy this is that these bars are suitable for vegetarians, which many other bars are not as they use some form of gelatine to keep the bars soft or gooey. The batches I've had have been variable though, some are hard some are softer, some are sweeter and some have had a bitter taste, it seems down to luck. If you are buying in a shop, give the bar or a box a light squeeze to check if that batch is soft enough. Even if it is dry, I tend to drink a couple of glasses of water at the same time as they mix well.
