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 .

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. .

I like the macros off the bat as the last few newer quest bars were coming in at 9g or more. Visually it’s the very common quest base tan, as flavored mocha with chocolate #chunkporn throughout the bar. Slight mocha, coffee aroma to the bar but very hard to smell imo. Typical for quest I heated one half of the bar and left the other room temp. The room temp bar had good chew but I felt the mocha flavor really lacked until the very end of the bite. It also was just a tad bit grainy as well. Heated up bar made for a better texture but still was a bit grainy or pasty. You get just a hint of mocha or coffee overall. When taken with a chunk of chocolate it can almost give a burnt coffee flavor. The more you ate the bar the more the flavor built in your mouth, you got a bit more flavor after eating the Bar. Was nice to see a coffee flavor come to market but I think it needs a bit of work. Decent to munch on but I wouldn’t buy a whole box, and would choose other flavors to this.

Overall – 6/10

MTS is easily one of my favorite protein brands on the market. I have personally tried three of their flavors(CNC, mint cnc, and Red Velvet) and have loved each flavor. They spent a good amount of time testing their products before releasing, and it shows.

@syntha_usa protein crisp peanut butter crunch
230 cal / 7f / 22c / 20p

First off this smells amazing. Like a Rice Krispie with just a hint of peanut butter. Breaking it in half was unexpected when it easily broke apart just like a Rice Krispie. Good bit of crunch with this bar. You get a bit of a marshmallow taste off the bat then more pb as you chew. I definitely would of loved to either see the pb play a bigger role since it’s a pb focused bar, or get more from the marshmallow. The addition of small nuts throughout the bar was nice and worth mentioning. Finished just a bit dry and grainy, but not terrible.
I would eat this again.
7.8/10 I couldn’t decide between 7.5 or 8.

240 cal / 7f / 24c / 20p
Very strong toffee aroma. White marshmallow Rice Krispie style bar with pieces of pretzel in it and a white drizzle. Very soft when breaking in half. Overall pretty lacking on flavor. You get a hint of toffee when you first bite into it most the flavor falls into the back drop. If you get a bite with pretzel in it the salty crunch adds a bit to the bar, but overall base flavor is weak. The bar also finishes just slightly grainy.
Overall not terrible but wouldn’t buy again.

@bsnsupplementsprotein crisp chocolate crunch review –

230 cal / 7f/ 23c / 20p
.
First off worth mentioning the strong Chocolate flavor this bar gives off. Nice on the nose. Chocolate rice crispy bar essentially,drizzled in chocolate, then dipped the bottom in it as well. Average size bar and macros to go with it. Good bit of crunch with this bar and has a good chew to accompany it. Chocolate flavor is average here. It’s not super strong, but you know your eating a chocolate flavored protein bar. Bar also finished very dry in your mouth so make sure you have some water or something to wash it down. .
Overall
6.5/10 .
