It’s 12g of protein per bar

2 bars = 24g of protein and 416cals

I was about to say that the macros are really very good, and put myself forward...
until I saw your reply!
 
Not only is 12g of protein per 208 cals rubbish, but the 'Key Benefits' section of the description is clearly misleading.
 
I was always under the impression that a 'protein bar' is a bar whose primary macro nutrient is protein, and in this case it clearly is not.

I got one of these with freebie box of samples for spending £50 on an order.
Chocolatey, criispy but very dry with token chewey bits. Just about edible while eating but what is that nasty lingering aftertaste?
The Sucralose maybe?
Macro profille has been mentioned already. If it tasted good maybe worth the junk but IMHO it certainly does not.

Review Time!
 
Seeing as I am cutting I was looking for a way to slot one of these in to my macros...post big deadlift session today seemed ideal.
 
Size of the bar was very pleasing, some bars look small, this looked a good chunky size.
 
Opened up and it looks like a Rocky Road Bar! Smelled like a Rocky Road Bar and after the first bite...yup tastes like one too. The marshmallow bits in there make it, the biscuit bits...its all there. The chocolate is a little powdery but that's picking flies really it makes little difference. No synthetic 'protein enhanced' flavour going on just a very nice filling bar. 
 
I could easily have ate the entire box as they could prove to be very addictive, certainly one of the better bars I have tried and a little different from the normal protein bars available.. would certainly buy these without hesitation.
 
Overall i'd give a 9/10.
 
Now to hide them until my high calorie day or cut is out the window lol!
 
Thanks again for the opportunity to review, i'd recommend these wholeheartedly

I was away on holiday last week so it was a pleasant surprise to see the Rocky Road sample had arrived in the office.
 
With each bar being 209kcal and only 12g of protein this is on the lower side of bars currently out on the market.
With the first ingredient being chocolate flavour compound with sweeteners (51%) I can see this putting some people off.
That said when I opened the bar, the smell and look were constant of a Rocky Road bar.
The taste and texture was actually really nice and very moreish.
 
As stated above I would use this bar on a bulk or as a treat.
 
8/10
