So awesome that I've wondered why no other company has decided to copy Quest and make similar bars. So when I discovered Ansi protein bars at the store today, I knew that I had to try them - finally, another company has produced a bar with similar macro ratios and calories to Quest bars!
I excitedly ripped into my bar tonight. When it comes to texture/consistency, there are two types of protein bars on the market - the imitation candy bars and the taffy-like bars. Like Quest bars, these Ansi bars are of that taffy variety. The Ansi bars, however, are much softer and have a slightly more "unnatural" feel to them. It also feels like foam. Kinda strange. But whatever - with these macros, I can overlook a weird texture...as long as it tastes good.
The taste is OK. It's not offensive and there are no weird off-tastes (like in so many other bars), but it's also not particularly tasty either. A bit bland. After eating half of it, I decided to toss the other half in the microwave for about 15 seconds. This softened it considerably (duh!), which kind of nullified the weird texture thing. The taste also improved somewhat. But still not great.Read more ›
I've reached the point in my diet where I am more concerned with nutrient value over taste because let's face it, most whole foods are bland. I want protein, taste is secondary in priority. Good thing is, this bar does have sweetner, a natural sweetner known as stevia. Plus it has a touch of sweetness with sugar as well. Let's face it, sugar in moderation is not bad and this one has moderate levels.
Stevia is from a plant, sucralose (splenda) is chemically produced.
Sucralose: it's gotten to the point where the American Dietetics Association hasn't taken a stance on sucralose because more and more tests are finding just how unsafe this sweetner is (I have a few friends that work in the Office of the Surgeon General as Dietititans). They haven't taken a stance because the FDA still lists it as an approved general food sweetner, but the ADA is not endorsing it.
Anyways, I avoid sucralose. You'll find most of the quest bars have sucralose, hence the better taste. It's up to you, do you want the nutrition with or without the artificial sweetner.
Now flavor isn't the best but most of the protein bars out there, I've tried a bunch, don't taste all that great or close to the flavor that the wrapper states. These are basically a taffy bar with a little bit of chocolate chip cookie dough flavor added to it. One thing that please me was I did not seem to have any nasty after taste as I've had with some of the bars out there.
I recommend this bar to everyone that has HBP and even those without it.
