MP My Bar Zero

Right I decided tonight I would get this done otherwise it will drag on and that hardly seems fair after I got a bar to try for free.
 
The flavour I was provided was strawberry vanilla, I did share a quarter of this with one lady at work who actually quite liked the bar as well. 
 
The taste was a little bit too subtle for me, theres a hint of strawberry but nothing which would scream this whilst eating the bar. I imagine the vanilla element is just somewhat blended in or thats what makes the strawberry taste seem so subtle. Depending on what you prefer this could be seen as a good or bad thing.
 
The texture of the bar is very soft, so you arn't having to constantly chew unlike we some bars i've had in the past. The main drawback is the underlying taste that is a little powdery if that makes sense, I imagine this is somewhat due to the texture. 
 
In saying that I happily ate the bar and the lady next to me commented that she quite liked it as well. I quizzed her over would she buy it and the price was the main off putting point. She liked the bar itself but as she would be eating as a snack didnt understand the nutritional value of it.
 
I have uploaded a couple of pics that will hopefully show others the texture/depth of the bar. - can someone help me with this as ive hosted elsewhere as the link wont work.
 
I think its unfair for me to draw any direct comparisons to the quest bar but I would say that with the ingredients/macros being a lot better than other bars this is definitely worth a try.

    I thought the same taste wise mate.
     
    This is the one I liked the least far to bland. Hopefully you will get a different flavour sample to try.

    Another flavour would be good to do a comparison against as there was nothing with these that screamed "go and buy them now"
     
    I dont want to mention quest too much as I think this is a little unfair on MyProtein, they have succeeded in making a bar with decent macros. Over time I am sure that will a little refinement these bars could be alot better but this would need to be done sooner rather than later.
     
    I spoke with BBW about a few different things and forums contribute for very little in terms of sales, so as much as we give feedback/compare I dont think it makes too much of a difference.
     
    The MMA/martial art market is still very poorly service by supplements and this bar would be handy for people on a weight cut. In terms of the PR/Marketing of products I think companies would be better off ditching "athletes" unless they are big names and looking towards someone who has legions of FB/Instagram followers and is active. Or people who are well known at gyms within an area i.e personal trainers.
     
    I've got off on a slight bit of tangent there but I know alot of people who eat quest bars now and this number is growing. Overall MP have produced a lot better bar than I expected, from the other thread it didn't look to appealing and wasnt getting rave reviews. I think that was a bit unjustified, I have eaten alot of worse bars (including MP's about 4 years back) with worse macros at roughly the same price point from memory.

    Why is it unfair to compare against quest bars - surely they're the main/only real competition at the moment (based on ingredients and macros)?

    I wanted to focus the review on the bar in question, I briefly mentioned quest as I think thats all what is needed there. I dont feel that the review section should be heavily focus on comparing to other products as its fairly opinionated.

    i tried to put directly on here but the size was too big that really needs evaluating.
     
    no problems on the review snake, hopefully it was too a good standard and a fair reflection.

    You're quite an angry little poster aren't you? 
     
    I wasn't speaking to you.  Or this thread actually.  An honest mistake. 
     
    Cheer up though buddy, it's only a thread on a forum.
     
     
    Back on topic, I've ordered a box and I have never tasted Quest bars so will hopefully be able to give an non comparing review.

    What are you on?  Trolling in the beserker thread?  Or questioning extremely dubious supplements?  Remember STCgate? CoOp testing scandal?  (I guess you don't or you would understand).

    These are lovely.  Like I said I've never had a quest bar so can't compare it to that.  But I really like the soft chewiness of the bar, although they're not chewy like some bars where your jaw starts to hurt.   I had the peanut caramel and as a massive peanut butter lover I love these bars.  
     
    I would definitely buy these again and if and when I buy snacks from MP again this will be my first choice.

    Hi 
    I have a question about this bars.. I recently bought the chocolate ones and the macros on the bar says: 3g carbs (26 g fibers), 20g protein and 6g fat. According to this macros calories are: 3x4+20x4+6x9= ~ 150. But the bars say 190 calories.. Can someone help me?
    I'm a flexible dieter and I don't know how to count macros for the bar..
