Well, I’ll be honest. I’ve tried my fair share of protein bars in the past, and I usually find them to be sort of chalky, dense, or just very bland. However, after trying the Cookies ‘n Cream Bar from Promax, it made me rethink protein bars!
Seriously guys- this bar totally rocked. Not only is there 20 grams of filling protein per bar, it was actually quite big (75 grams)! I opened up the bar and saw a thin white coating, with a dark brown/black colored bar underneath. I took a bite, and was both surprised and totally pleased. This bar was SOFT! Like fudgy and chewy soft! So good, I really loved the consistency. But what did I also love? THE TASTE! Oh yea!! The coating tasted like a sweet vanilla icing, and the bar itself was sweet, slightly chocolatey, and also a slight peanut butter flavor. Just absolutely delicious- all the flavors went together really well.
Overall, 4 1/2 stars. This doesn’t get 5 stars from me because there are 30 grams of sugar in this 75 gram bar, and only 1 gram of fiber. It was very hard to not eat the whole bar in one sitting, which had 270 calories. Besides the awesome flavor and texture, I did like that it had 25% of the calcium needs, and only had 4.5 grams of fat. Nice!!
1 bar is 270 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 39 grams of carbohydrates, 30 grams of sugar, 1 gram of fiber, and 20 grams of protein.
