    Stats lol! You mean nutritional info? hehe

    Per 80gm Bar
    Energy 1211 kj/290 Kcal
    Protein 35g
    Carbohydrate 1.9g
    Sugars 1.5g
    Fat 7.2g
    Saturates 4.7g
    Polyols 19.3g
    Dietary Fibre 5.4g
    Sodium 200mg
    Lactospore pro-biotics 50 million spores

    Ingredients: Reflex Pit-Stop protein complex(whey protein, milk protein isolate, soy crispies), glycerine, milk chocolate flavour coating(15% - maltitol, vegetable fat, cocoa powder, milk solids, lecithin, aspartame), hydrolysed gelatine, fructo-oligosaccharides, desiccated coconut (coconut flavours only), maltitol, vegetable oil, flavourings, Lactospore pro-biotics, SPLENDA Sucralose.

    Looks good to me, except I need to know what they taste like before I buy a box. Cant be bothered to buy just one and pay delivery for it too.

    What about extreme nutrition bars, what do you guys think of them?

    Total fat is 64.8 cals of the bar. Not bad I guess, in the ideal world it would have 0g fat!

    23.99 for 12 bars? Pretty much the standard price for bars which contain just as much protein. To be honest, whilst cutting, I would rather eat this at £2 per bar (but once a day!) while Im out than spend about 3 - 4 quid on a sandwich and something else to match the protein amount, even then with the sandwich youll get at least 30-40g of carbs in there.

    You could always buy the sliced chicken in sainsburys though, its like £2.99, thai or some other marinated flavours, had like 50-60g pro (not sure on fats though or other ingredients) if I remember correctly. I tried the thai one, it was alright but I ate it cold which didnt do the flavour any justice.

    True true.

    Was comparing it to the MyP flapjack but that does have quite a bit less pro.

    What is a soy crispie?

    Also, I noticed there is quie alot of polyols. I'm a bit confused as to whether they should be counted as carbs. Anyone got much info on those?
