Product Description

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. After intense training Maximuscle Cyclone Bars accelerate muscle refuelling, with faster recovery of glycogen stores than carbohydrates alone. If not taking Cyclone powder, take two bars a day. Available in chocolate and choc/orange flavours.

Flavour Name: Chocolate Verified Purchase
I have to ask WHY the bad reviews ? Are you new to nutrition or protein bars? They are not designed to taste identical to chocolate brownies. But the taste isn't as bad as people make it out to be, I find it rather enjoyable.
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.

I really don't know what all the fuss is about. I think these bars taste OK. They taste like dark chocolate covered German gingerbread. I must admit they do have a sweet after taste but if you are only having one or two then I don't believe the sweetness will be overwhelming.
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.

Update 08/05/12.
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.

Phenomenal!!!
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.

I'm a dedicated Maximuscle MRP bar fan - but stick to Promax Meal and Promax Diet if you actually possess taste buds. Because I'd always liked the taste of their bars, I actually bulk bought 36 Cyclone bars once......what followed was several weeks of abject torture. The taste is indescribably bad - so much so it became a standing joke in my office as everyone would gather round to enjoy my various facial grimaces as I ate them. One day, I made the claim 'I bet cardboard would taste better' - so you know what happened next don't you? I tore off the corner of a box and ate the cardboard - and it DID. Awful, awful, dreadful stuff. Not fit for slugs. Conversely, the Cyclone shakes aren't TOO bad.

Just £9.85 at time of ordering for 12 bars that's an absolute bargain for 23g of high quality protein. Cheaper than buying Cyclone powder and convenient if on the go. I'm sure this bargain price must be just temporary maybe I'm benefiting from all the negative reviews and probably screwing myself over by leaving a positive review. I had to comment on the taste though, perhaps the recipe has changed since the negative reviews? These bars are pretty tasty are they as nice as a Mars bar or Snickers of course not but they are soft and chewy and you can definitely taste the chocolate. The texture isn't too dissimilar to a nougat. The only slight negative I can think of is they can be a bit of an effort to chew up especially when you are dry from working out. Overall great product will definitely be buying again if the price stays reasonable.

Flavour: Dark Chocolate
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.
