1.0 out of 5 starsNew recipie = lower protien and more sugar, this is a candy bar

The usual trick of poorer quality ingredients. Eat a mars bar and scoup of whey protein instead, it's healthier. Learn to read ingredients and nutritional profiles people then you will see through the scams. Old bar 24g protien, new bar 20g protien with 25% more sugar.
Maximuscle Progain High Protein and Creatine Flapjack, 90 g - Oat and Raisin
In the box. You get 12 bars which are individually wrapped in a foil type wrapping.
Design. The bar is designed as a post exercise recovery bar which offers protein, carbs, fibre and lower sugar than many bars I have tried. They come in at around 202 calories per bar.
Taste. This is the one I like the best from the range, I have tried the cookie dough one and the Millionaires Shortbread but I prefer this one. It has a nicer texture and is not over sweet to me. Nutrition. They are formulated to give at least 20 g of protein per bar. They are batch tested for consistency. I cannot dispute the nutrition content as the firm seems to go out of t5heir way to make sure you get what’s on the packed. They do help to overcome the post exercise fatigue very well and I do feel back up to power faster after using them.
Overall. A good protein bar but the taste is a bit over sweet for me, I know this is my individual assessment but I would advise you try one before buying in bulk. On the other hand they do their job well, I can feel a difference after 10 days of using them. Overall, a good post exercise bar and they do other flavours as well. This flapjack one is my personal favourite.
The packaging for this Vine offer to review ‘Maximuscle High Protein Bars’ contains 12 individually wrappedbars each 12 x 3 x 2 cm and weighing 20g, and it has a ‘best before’ date of November 2017. Though I am not a nutritionist I acknowledge the range of ingredients listed on the packaging as appropriate to sports persons requiring energy and for physical performance. I am impressed by the details stated on the pack, and they may well be good for me – but I wasn’t keen on the taste.
The texture and chewiness are similar to a good flapjack as made by my wife with oats, butter and syrup (and sometimes dried fruit), but it lacks the flavour. I would have preferred no chocolate (the bars are half coated) but my wife thinks the chocolate is the best part. It may be worth noting the product is subjectively tested to ensure there are no sports-banned substances. Also there is a waning on the packaging that contents ‘may’ contain nuts – they certainly seem to.
Not being an athlete wary of doping tests, or a nut allergist, I will be slipping a couple of these ‘Maximuscle High Protein Bars’ into my rucsac as ‘fell food’ – but I don’t really like them – sorry.
These come in a pack of 12 individually wrappedbars. I found that the taste was just palatable but my husband enjoyed them. I work out regularly but as I am small and slim I do not do a lot of weight training. However my routine is strenuous and my muscles are slowly growing. It is difficult to assess results on and muscle building product until some time has passed. I do find these more convenient that the protein shakes I normally take as I can take one to the gym and take it immediately I am finished a workout. I did not find the taste great at first but with subsequent bars it improved. My husband enjoyed them from the start. I will continue to take them post workout and may well take one at breakfast. I am pleased to have tried these
These really are very tasty! They contain 20g worth of protein and around 40g of carbohydrates in a bitesize portion. This pack contains twelve individually wrappedbars in an outer cardboard box, which has a retail vibe to it. I will definitely be buying them again!
