I love trying new protein bars.
I love how far they have come. They used to be chalky and disgusting; now, there are so many options, many of which taste great and are relatively good for you!
When Cari from EcoTrek Fitness contacted me about reviewing her whole food bars, I was really excited. Give me anything with chocolate and I promise you I will try it.
Cari sent me a box of each of her flavors to try: Chocolate Raspberry and Chocolate Peanut Butter. Each bar has 6 servings of fruits and vegetables (crazy!) and 10 grams of protein. My only complaint is that they also have 14 grams of sugar, which is the equivalent of a candy bar, but as long as you watch your daily sugar intake you should be fine. These bars are a healthy indulgence and a much better alternative to candy bars!
First up: Chocolate Peanut Butter. These were pretty delicious. I honestly am always skeptical about trying new protein bars because I'm scared they will taste like chalk, but these tasted like a candy bar. A much healthier alternative to Reese Cups. Chewy, chocolatey, and fudgey with some crunch.
Next: Chocolate Raspberry. These were by far my favorite! I love the combination of chocolate and fruit, especially dark chocolate and raspberries. This reminds me of the Chocolate Raspberry Lunabar, although I couldn't tell you which was better unless I compared them side by side. This has a strong raspberry flavor that I cannot get enough of. I could devour the entire box in minutes. Seriously. I could.
So, aside from the bars' high sugar content, these are great.
