Protein Bars tried and tested!

I really enjoyed taste testing Protein shakes for you a few weeks back and as I have always felt the same about Protein bars too, always wondering if there really are delicious ones out there? I thought I would test a bunch out and give you my honest opinion. Just like with the shakes, I have tried my fair few bars and have often been left disappointed. Too chewy, too dry, too fake, too yucky were words that I would choose to describe them in the past, but with the fitness industry currently booming and so many new and exciting products hitting the shelves, will we find any winners out there? 
Pro Bar Base Coffee Crunch.
Carbs: 33g
Sugar: 16g
Protein: 20g
Fat: 9g
I had heard good things about the bar through Instagram and when on a little shopping spree in The Vitamin Shoppe I couldn't resist trying it out. You know how much I love my coffee, so this flavor jumped out at me. I was really excited to dig into it and have to say it was delicious. The crunch came from a sort of rice crispy inside covered with chocolate, with a coffee layer, I honestly felt like I was eating a Toffee Crisp. (British chocolate bar) It was feeling and would be perfect if you were having a chocolate craving but wanted to be somewhat good. I am eager to try more from this brand and am drooling right now thinking about this one, I need to stock up.

Quest Bar Oatmeal Chocolate Chip
Carbs: 22g
Sugar: 1g
Protein: 20g
Fat:8g
Quest Nutrition have been taking the fitness world by storm. Though I am not a huge fan of their shakes, I am rather fond of their bars and protein chips. This Oatmeal chocolate chip is their new flavor and really yummy. I think their Smores one might have to be my favourite, it's sweet but not too sweet and it has that scrumptious crunch of the graham crackers and chocolate. But this oatmeal bar is definitely a winner. It has that lovely cinnamon taste and with the chocolate and oats you feel like you are eating a cookie.
Oh Yeah! One Bar Lemon Cake.
Carbs:23g
Sugar:1g
Protein: 22g
Fat: 7g
I loved this bar, so much so that I immediately purchased a variety pack of from Oh Yeah Nutrition, so I could try all their flavours. This lemon one was amazing. It was fresh, had a delicious lemon flavour and taste like cake. I have also had their Peanut butter pie one and am a huge fan. So so good. I can't wait to try their birthday cake one as I have heard nothing but awesome things about it. 
Lenny and Larry's Snickerdoodle cookie.
Carbs: 27g
Sugar: 15g
Protein: 8g
Fat:4g
Lenny and Larry's have yet to disappoint me. I was so excited when I came across this protein cookie and was even more excited after I tried it. My husband and I love the double chocolate chip cookie they have and like to have them on hand when we are going out for the day. Furthermore, I love cookies, so knowing I can go to the cupboard and grab this healthier version is perfect for me. This snickerdoodle one is awesome, it's so full of that wonderful cinnamon flavour and melts in your mouth.
Powercrunch French Vanilla Crème.
Carbs: 8g
Sugar: 5g
Protein: 14g
Fat: 13g
I love, love, love these bars. They are incredible and you don't feel like you are eating a protein bar at all. They taste just like a wafer dessert. This French vanilla crème bar is super creamy, sweet and delicious and I also adore their peanut butter and triple chocolate ones too. Powercrunch is definitely one of my favourite go to snacks, they simply taste awesome!

Do you have a favourite protein bar? What are your go to snacks?

Have a lovely day!
Love Lucy

  1. The Pro Bar Base Coffee Crunch bar sounds incredible! I'm going to have to try and find some of these in the UK! I always carry a nakd bar in my handbag (usually the chocolate orange or cherry bakewell flavour) but I'm always looking for new healthy treats to try :) xxx

    1. It was so good! Just the taste and texture and everything was perfect, it didn't taste like a protein bar at all. Ooh you will have to let me know if you can find them in the UK, if not I will have to stock up and bring some back at Christmas! :) I must try the chocolate orange and bakewell nakd bars, I have heard so many good things! :) xx
