Unicorn Crunch Bars

@uniconutritionVanillaFrosted Brownie crunch bar – ‘soft baked and gluten free’

Cals – 210 / Fat – 8 / Carbs – 19 / Pro – 20
.
.
52g bar so slightly smaller than its competitors that are usually low 60’s. Macro split is pretty much the same as all the other bars of this style, and fairly balanced. Overall presentation is nice with a brownie bar coated in white then drizzling of chocolate over that with plenty of noticeable ‘crips’. Bar is very soft in texture with a bit of a chew on it. The vanilla is pretty sweet and honesty does give you a frosting flavor which I quite liked. You get some brownie in it, but I think the brownie layer should have a bit more flavor to it and not so much frosting. Nice bit of crunch in the beginning to satisfy my texture needs as well. .
.
Overall – 8/10 Definitely enjoyed this bar and I bet it would be even better warmed up just a bit. Definitely grab one of these if your looking for a change up.

Slightly smaller bar at 52g but good macro split to accompany it. Visually a very pleasing bar with a cinnamon nougat filling coating in white, then drizzled with cinnamon drizzle. Noticeable crisps throughout the bar to help with texture appeal.
Very soft bar when chewing with a bit of crunch from the crisps. You get a great blast of cinnamon from the get go and finished with a smooth vanilla icing finishing. The bar didn’t leave any unwanted aftertaste or graininess in the mouth. This bar is also gluten free. .
.
Overall – 8.5/10 very good bar and enjoyable to eat. Would definitely recommend trying this out

@performixdriven fruity charms wafer review –

210 cal / 15f / 7c / 13p .
.
38g total weight for the wafers so small compared to a typical protein bar but wafers are lite. 15g of Fat is pretty high for me but the trade off is super low carbs at 7g which is damn low for a bar. Visually I love this. White coated wafers with fruity pebbles scattered over them(well a few at least). 2 layers of wafers, 2 layers of filling. Unfortunately this flavor was absolutely terrible. As soon as I bit into it I had this weird taste in my mouth, the wafer just kinda dries up in your mouth and sticks to your teeth. Definitely don’t get fruity charm flavor that’s boasted. .
.
Overall – 2/10 , absolutely unappealing to me and definitely would not buy or recommend to anyone

@performixdriven CPB protein wafer review –
210 cal / 14f / 8c / 13 p

Definitely a good macro bar if your looking for low carbs, if you eat a low fat diet like me, you might wanna check yourself. 38g total grams, so very lite compared to typical bars but again this is a wafer. Chocolate coating with a double wager layer with pb in between the layers. Gotta day I’m completely underwhelmed. No real chocolate or pb flavor here and it dissolves pretty dang quick. It also is just a tit bit grainy as well as it gets sticky on your teeth, and leaves a bit of an aftertaste. .
.
Overall – 3/10 , I just couldn’t get into this. I did let someone eat what I wasn’t going to and they enjoyed it so it’s definitely personal preference! .

Overall slightly higher macros for the size of this bar compared to competitors. 55g bar compared to usually 60-65g. I guess you take a hit in fat for a few saved macros in the carb dept. Visually pretty appealing bar with a white coating drizzled with pink and scattered with spranks. Texture on this is pretty smooth chew with a just a bit of a crunch from the spranks. Finishes smooth in the mouth as well not leaving any graininess behind. Very sweet bar, with a solid birthday cake flavor. I feel the flavor does die just a bit right at the end but overall pretty solid flavor. Overall the bar is pretty satisfying. .
.
Overall – 8/10. Enjoyed this one over the PB caramel bar.

@prosupps_llc Salted Caramel Peanut Crunch Review

220 cal / 10f / 17c / 20p
.
.
Overall size is a bit smaller than your usual bar. 55g compared to 65g or so and it definitely feels like it’s smaller, so it’s a bit of a shock to still see 10g of fat, but carbs are relative low at only 17g. Visually very nice looking bar with a peanut filling, chocolate coating, drizzle, and scattered peanuts over the bar.(que higher fat, yet the non peanut bar I got was also 10f). .
.
Mainly a peanut butter aroma with a faint hint of caramel. Very soft when biting it the bar and chews pretty good with the peanuts giving just a slight crunch. Overall flavor here lacked in my opinion. It’s like the caramel and the peanut butter are fighting for the top flavor and neither come out on top and it all gets lost. Chocolate flavor? Don’t even mention it. Enjoyable to eat, but definitely wouldn’t seek this bar out over many others. .
.
Overall – 7/10 .

Hefty bar at 88g which is nice since this is packing 300+ cals. Absolutely delicious peanut butter aroma to this bar from first ripping it open. Peanut butter coated bar with a peanut butter filling and a nougat layer with chocolate drizzle over it all. Appearance definitely is 👌 with this bar. Macro split is similar to your fit crunch or other related soft baked bars. Very very very soft and chewy texture with some peanuts scattered throughout it. Great peanut butter flavor as it’s the definite stand out here. The bar doesn’t leave a film or any grainy bits left behind and finishes smooth. I honestly don’t have much negative to say about this bar. Spot on Pro Sups, well done. .

Overall – 9.5/10

88g bar coated in chocolate with a chocolate drizzle and what looks like chocolate pieces on top. Extremely soft and chewy bar that finishes smooth with no aftertaste. Great chocolate flavor without being overly sweet but definitely sweet enough. Inside looks like two layers of maybe a brownie and cake or maybe two types of a brownie 🤷‍♂️ idk but it’s delicious. .
.
Overall – 9.5/10
Definitely a bar that you need to try. I absolutely loved this bar and definitely recommend this! Nom nom nom

GNC Lemon Meringue Lean Bar

I think GNC definitely had summer flavors in mind when creating this guy. Lemon is a perfect flavor choice in the warm months as it’s usually lite, refreshing, and delicious. Read below to see if GNC was able to get it right!

@gnclivewell lemon meringue bar review –
170 cal / 6f / 21c / 15p
Decent macro split here with this bar. Protein could be a bit higher but as long as it’s at least 15 I’m usually happy. Very nice lemon smell to this bar, and has a almost fluorescent yellow rice crispy looking bar with a vanilla dipped bottom. Pretty solid lemon flavor here without being to overpowering. You don’t really get any meringue with this bar unfortunately. Really wasn’t sure how they were going to pull that off. It consistency is very similar to a rice crispy or a cereal bar with just a slight dry grainy finish. Every with that said it’s still an enjoyable eat, and if I remember correctly they have a decent price point.
Overall – 6.5/10

@one1brands maple glazed donut bar review –
220 cal / 8f / 24c / 20p –
60g bar weight so standard but seemed short and small to me for some reason. Doughnut filling with a maple Glaze that really does give off a strong maple flavor that I enjoyed. Bar has a nice chew but no real texture support. The only flavor I get with this bar is maple and wouldn’t know it’s a ‘doughnut’ bar. Maple is a bit artificial tasting but passable, and does chew smooth as it melts in your mouth. I did find it finished a bit dry, and a tad grainy the more you chew it. Macros on the bar are pretty standard, so I’m not complaining there.
Overall – 7/10

First thing to mention is the nice split of macros. Honestly roughly 5-8g of fat and 20-30g of carbs and protein is typically what I’m looking for in a bar. Very strong Raspberry aroma here but does has a artificial tinge to it. Bars dipped in chocolate then finished with a chocolate drizzle. Very soft texture to the touch. Soft when bitten in to and no real crunch factor. Few whey crisps but they get lost. Pretty much the only flavor I get in this bar is artificial Raspberry. I don’t have any chocolate flavors on the tongue at all. Trying the chocolate by itself was very meh. Unsweetened and didn’t offer much. Overall for me the artificial Raspberry is a bit to much for me. Takes over everything and lingers in your mouth. .
.
Overall 4.5/10. 
IMO the bar is edible is you absolutely need something and your friend says he’s got the hook up(which he clearly doesn’t) and lets you pick between this or @bpi_sports best bars(see previous reviews). .

Again a very unappealing bar on the visual and aroma side of things. Tan bar with a yellowish white coating mimicking icing I would assume. Just a few small sprinkles scattered throughout the bar as well. Honesty I couldn’t even hammer out a smell on this bar, I think they were trying for a bday cake aroma or something but it’s to faint. Very very weird off putting taste as soon as you bite into, with a weird texture. You think it would be soft n chewy but it almost has a plastic feel to it. No real taste either other than a bit of sweetness at the end. I took only as many bites needed to make this review. Yet another dissipointment from @bpi_sports and their bars. Definitely sad I wasted money on these, but I knew I would not be surprised, yet I had to do it for you #fitfam .

@bpi_sports white chocolate pretzel review
250 cal / 9f / 32c / 20p .

Visually extremely unappealing here. Tan bar with a white bottom coating with pretzels scattered through out. Not really much of a smell here. Kinda just like their other bars. Little bit of white chocolate that’s it, but not a very pleasant smell. Very bland taste here. Extremely sticky, I don’t taste pretzel or w.choc, almost no crunch from the pretzel and you really only get a small vanilla sweet taste twords the end. Very disappointed with this bar. Little high on the macros being 9f and 32 c but they say it’s only 12 net carbs cause of fiber but I don’t follow that. I definitely would never buy this again and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. .

Overall 3/10
