Foodie Fridays: Fitness Food Review

In my quest to find the perfect protein bar, I stumbled upon this gem for $2.49 at my local GNC.

The Maple Glazed Doughnut Protein Bar.

Flavor: Decent. Not too sweet.

Texture: Smooth. Slightly chewy. Easy to swallow.

Eatability: Hard to finish the bar in one sitting, but half the bar is 110 calories and that is a fair amount for me.

Protein Content: 20G protein

Sugar Content: 1G sugar! The rule of thumb I read is you should get less than 6g of sugar in your 20g protein bar so kudos to ONE.

Other ingredients: I don’t know what all the ingredients are after reading through the ingredients list… I would like to have all natural ingredients in my protein bar ideally.

Value: At $2.49/bar I wouldn’t buy this item again as I don’t think I want to pay over $2/bar. I do think the flavor is decent and the texture is perfect and the amount of sugar per protein is ideal. If I could find a lower price point, I would definitely buy this one again, though I would like to find one without the list of chemicals in the ingredients.
