I don’t eat a lot of protein bars; many of the ones I’ve tried just don’t do it for me either in taste, texture, or ingredients. I picked up a box of these on a whim and found myself reaching for them as a dessert or to satisfy a candy bar craving. I left them off my grocery list this week not because I don’t like them, but because I probably like them a little too much.
I think of this protein bar as what would happen if Reese’s turned their peanut butter cups into a keto-friendly candy bar; chocolate covered fluffy peanut butter with a few little pieces of crunchy peanut. It’s not as sweet as a Reese’s, but will definitely satisfy a sweets craving. I’ve had protein bars that are dense and chewy, or oddly dry and crumbly. This one isn’t either of those textures.
I’m not sure how this performs as a protein bar; I’m not well schooled in all of the reasons people eat them. I wouldn’t recommend this one if you need something quick to satisfy hunger, for example. I think this bar is great if you find yourself a little bit short of reaching your protein macro and want a little something to close that gap. Or, as mentioned above, something to help satisfy a craving for sweets or dessert.
This bar is actually made of peanut butter, not another nut butter substitute with flavoring. If you avoid legumes, this bar is unfortunately not for you. So far they just have the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie flavor in their Keto options, but I can’t imagine they won’t have other Keto flavors available at some point.
