From the first bite I knew that today would be a much better day. I was running late for my teaching job over at the community college. I didn’t have any time even for the most rudimentary cereal- as per my normal routine- so I decided to grab one of my protein bars for review.
I ran out the door without even noticing which one I had taken. About half way to work I realized I hadn’t eaten my breakfast yet, so I peeled back the wrapper noticing the bar was a Snickers. I praised God for this bit of luck. Based on the name alone I had some pretty big hopes as far as taste goes.
I wasn’t let down. Gosh, I was amazed. It tasted pretty much JUST LIKE a Snickers bar. A definite 4.5 out of 5 stars on taste. The texture was good and there was no nasty after taste- unlike some bars I could mention.
But now we get to the big question. How healthy is it? Well the 21g of protein are good (much of which comes from Whey), but the sugars are up around 20g. The ingredient list is not great, but it is acceptable. I would definitely save this bar for days when you plan on hitting the street and the weights in the same day OR as a meal replacement bar.
So here are the overall stats
Taste: 4.5 out of 5 (nothing is perfect)
Health: 3.5 out of 5 (some corn syrup and other things I am usually not to fond of)
Protein Content: 4 out of 5 (this has that dreaded soy, but at least you can’t taste it)
