The first protein bar up for review is ThinkThin’s Chocolate Fudge bar. The ingredients looked tolerable and fairly healthy, but the presence of sugar alcohol worried me. I had high hopes for this bar based on the taste of Chocolate Fudge supposedly contained somewhere therein.
I was shockingly let down. This bar gets a 1.5 out of 5 stars. Why? Let’s start with the taste- it was barely edible. While it didn’t make me throw up, I did end up throwing away half of it to spare myself the torture of eating another bite. As if the taste wasn’t bad enough it had all the texture of shoe leather, despite being a bit easier to chew.
In addition, while it contains 20g of protein, much of that protein is in the form of soy protein. Soy protein is not as efficient or effective as whey- although the bar does contain whey protein as well.
I hope it gets better than this, it can’t get much worse.
