Optimum Nutrition Protein Bars


@optimumnutrition bar reviews
Doing these 3 all at once so I can get them out of the way.

Brownie – chocolate bar with a chocolate drizzle. Slight brownie flavor, sticky, chewy, not overly chocolate or any flavor really. Reminds me of a faint tootsie roll.

CnC– Chocolate bar with chocolate and cream pieces scattered. Sticky, chewy, faint cream flavor and faint ‘cookie’ flavor as well. Nothing stands out and goes blah in your mouth.

WCR – Tan bar with white chocolate chips throughout. Sticky and grainy. Very artificial flavored. No go.

Visually very similar to a @fitjoynutrition without the nuts or the under coating. Decent cinnamon aroma, but no visible pecans. Maybe spot a few flakes if I look reallllllyyyy hard inside the bar. This was better than the CCCD but really not much flavor at all. You get a bit of spices right away but quick after that all flavor is gone. Grainy, bad mouth feel, bad after taste, just overall no go period. @combatcrunch or @fitjoynutrition would be better options for a cinnamon bar.


@optimumnutrition CCCD review
230 cal / 7g / 23c / 20p
First off it’s a very dull unattractive bar. Only a few noticeable chocolate chips. Reminds me of some of the early ISO-1 bars. Average bar at 65g and macros comparable to CC or quest. To much of a powdered protein taste here. Smooth texture, slightly taffy like. Not much flavor going on here and not enough chocolate chips to support it. Also very sticky. Very very average bar unfortunately. I feel CCCD is a missed flavor most of the time.
