Not bad, considering it's a protein bar.
on July 2, 2013
I really didn't find these all that bad, to be honest. Yes, it has 200 calories, but it also has 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of dietary fiber. When I'm looking for a filling snack before working out for a full hour with my personal trainer, a regular granola bar, while indeed tastier, is just NOT going to cut it. So, the calories are not an issue for me as I make sure to work protein bars into my calorie limit for the day.
The taste was decent. In my opinion, protein bars in general taste a bit metallic. Do not expect to bite into this and think you're eating a Snickers. It won't taste that way, and like I said, in my personal experience, protein bars don't taste like candy bars or even regular granola bars for that matter. I don't really taste the peanut butter in this, but the chocolate was good. It is dark chocolate so if you're not a fan, I'd stay away. The texture is dense and a bit chewy but not a "pull out your filling" type of chewy....just enough to make it seem like you're eating something substantial.
I had one of these the other day prior to my workout and it definitely filled me up and gave me energy. I wasn't feeling any hunger pangs during my workout, and that's always a plus and one of the reasons why I enjoy eating protein bars prior to exercising.
