@gatorade chocolate pretzel review
11f/42c/20p – pretty high carb n fat. Decent size bar. Nice Chocolate coating. Similar to a rice Krispy texture. Good bits of pretzel throughout and they kept a nice bit of salty flavor in it. Good chew, and a nice Chocolate after taste. I also liked the after taste of pretzel lingering there to. Good bar, kind of high macros though. If you are worried about sugar this isn’t the bar for you. Comes in at 27g.
Still enjoyable to eat but nothing overwhelming.
7.8/10

@gatorade chocolate caramel review:
10f/43c/20p – good size bar, nice Chocolate coating, and a thick caramel layer right underneath the chocolate. Rice crispy like texture inside the bar. Good aroma of caramel, not a lot of chocolate. First bite you get caramel right away and it has a nice sweet vanilla finish. Great chew to accompany this bar. Definitely reasonably priced. Think it was only 1.60$ per bar. Definitely enjoyable to eat. I am beginning to see why @nothingisimpossiblex is a fan. Critiques would be, lower the sugar/overall carb count a bit and increase the chocolate flavor a bit.
8.5/10 would buy again.

@gatorade chocolate chocolate chip review: 13f/42c/20p

Dense, good size bar. Nice Chocolate coating on the outside. Good chocolate aroma. Bust it open and it’s got chocolate dusted rice crispies with a few chocolate chips mixed in there. Good chew with this flavor as well. Definitely something they did right with these bars. Its a nice mix between crunchy n chewy. This flavor definitely has the best chocolate flavor out of all the bars I’ve had so far. Warming it up helped increase the chocolate a bit more, as I find warming most chocolate bars up does. Well chewing this it reminded me of eating a CRUNCH bar. No not combat crunch, an actual crunch h candy bar. Downsides, after chewing for awhile you lose the chocolate and left with dry crispies, and the macros could be a bit better.
8/10

@gatorade mint chocolate crunch bar.
12f/42c/20p
Right away you pop it open and get a great Andes candy aroma. Nice Chocolate coating, and rice Krispy like texture. Good chew, and nice crunch. This bar is easily my favorite out of this line. It’s a great mix of each flavor. First off you get a bit of chocolate, then mint and not that overpowered menthol mint, then finishes with a bit more chocolate. Obviously the downsides to the bar are that it’s high cal, carb, and fat. Ideal macros for this imo would be 10f/30c/20p
9/10 , best mint bar ive taste on the market.

@musclemeds Carnivor Soft Baked CNC Bar – 17f/32c/30p

Good chew, soft, dense, bit of crunch to help with texture, could use a bit more of a cream flavor, and I would make the chocolate a bit richer. Specially for the higher fat content. Overall wasn’t a bad bar to eat, and it was tasty both cold, and warmed up. Prefer these over the Arnold bars for similar macros.

@fitcrunchbars chocolate peanut butter. 16/27/30 little high on the fat but so worth it. These are prolly one my favorite bars on the market when I can afford the fat. Good chew, thick layers, actually nuts, great crunch and texture, nice drizzle on top, very visually appealing, dense, freaking awesome warmed up.
If you haven’t had one yet go get one.

@fitcrunchbars CCCD review : 16f/27c/30p
Sweet chocolate coating. I felt this chocolate has the best flavor, nice drizzle on top for a very visually appealing look, very dense, and 3 layers. Coating, then a chocolate filling, followed by the cookie dough layer. Crunchies throughout the bar which are one of my favorite features (plus they arnt super dry like most). Only down fall is the chocolate is so rich it slightly over powers that it’s a cookie dough flavor. Still a great taste tho.

@fitcrunchbars CNC review. 16/27/30
Nice chocolate smell, very visually appealing, that drizzle gives it a nice touch, warming it up is a nice addition, good amount of crunch giving the bar a great texture. Inside has a nice chew, and a good thick layer of both nugat n cookie with a thinner layer of creme. I believe it also has chunks of chocolate throughout it as well. Nice thick chocolate coating. Very satisfying bar. I prefer the PB one over this, but that’s just because I love peanut butter. 😁
9/10 again, worth the macros.

@fitcrunchbars cinnamon twist review

380 cal / 16f / 27c / 30p
Visually very appealing bar. Nice white coating, cinnamon drizzle, and a cinnamon filled inside. Great chew, great contrast with texture giving you a solid crunch with every bite yet has enough soft bits to accompany well. Heavily flavored with cinnamon which I love. Honestly the inside was like eating a Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal bar flavor if I am remembering correctly. Macros are a bit higher but the bar is larger, and the flavor is worth it. Definitely one of the best cinnamon bars on the market.
9.5/10
