As someone who deals with migraines, chocolate is a major trigger for me. I haven’t tried them yet and will see if I can tolerate the bars without getting a migraine. I have a hard time finding plant based protein bars without chocolate and this one was my go to. I must say, I’m highly disappointed with this change.
I love the way these taste. Very nice treat when you are looking for a break from the usual vegan regime. And healthy.... almost. The carb dose is a bit high for my needs. Also.. I used to think that 6 g of sugar was not a lot, but over time i've changed my mind. Now, i prefer bars with 1 to 0 g sugar -- which, actually, this very same company makes... its a diet bar with only 1 g of sugar and its not bad tasting at all.
Best protein bar! My son eats one of these bars every morning before going to work ( in lieu of breakfast ). It provides the protein and nutrients to get him to lunch. They are gluten free...a must since he's eliac.
As I am strength training and trying to gain more muscle and weight, these protein bars are my pick. I get 20 grams of protein and 310 calories per bar. With my digestive issues, I can tolerate the little bit of chocolate on these bars.
Just like the coconut flavour I tried, it has the same weird taste and dry texture, and too sweet at the same time which I am not enjoying at all unfortunately. Even when hungry after a workout I find it almost impossible to consume because of that strong unatural taste. The quality of ingredients may be a plus for those who don't mind the taste.
