    Couldn't get past the sweet

    I was excited to try this product for a number of reasons, but that was short-lived. I do occasionally consume protein bars and am aware that they are not exactly health foods, despite any claims but they do provide energy in a pinch.

    What I really liked about this product was that it was plant-based protein and there was not concern about gelatine or other unwanted animal products. The texture was good and the wrapper looked like the sort that is compostable or biodegradable rather than the metallic mylar wrappers filling landfills.

    However, although there may be some positive things to say about the bar, the amount of sugar contained within was a barrier. I found it difficult to eat more than a small bite without feeling seriously unwell, like a kid who ate too many candies at a birthday party. This was the deal-breaker for me.

    Not For Me

    I #gotitfree through the product review club.

    My partner and I were disappointed in these bars. We were looking forward to trying them as we both are quite active and eat both high protein granola bars and protein bars on a regular basis.

    This bar gave me a terrible stomach ache (not gas or digestive upset, sharp pain in my stomach) about 10-15 minutes after eating it. I think that it's from the inulin (a fibre extract). I eat a high fibre diet normally (vegetarian), so I don't know if it was just too much fibre or this particular ingredient that did it. It may have been something else entirely, but I wasn't going to eat another to find out! It lasted for a few hours and was painful enough to wake me up when I tried to sleep it off.

    We found the flavour to be okay, not great but not bad. It was a bit too sweet for our taste though.

    Looking at the nutritional information, 10g of protein is pretty good (until you see that a lot of it is from various concentrates). The sugar and sodium counts are fairly high, but to be expected in a commercial bar. It had a fair bit of fat, likely from the nuts (13g), but it's still a consideration.

    Overall, we won't be buying these. They don't agree with my stomach and my partner didn't like them enough to spend money on them. Usually, something like this would disappear quickly in our house, but one bar is still sitting on the table.
