Unicorn Crunch Bars

IMG_3397

@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! .

@prosupps carrot cake my cookie review – 290 cal / 8f / 36c / 18p .
.
First off, the carrot cake aroma with this cookie is spot on 👌 very inviting to say the least. 80g weight of the cookie so it’s a good size. Carrot cake cookie with a glaze on top makes it look very appealing as well. Very very soft texture and good carrot cake flavor but I did find it to kinda die out as you chew and the more you chew it does get a bit grainy unfortunately. Very dense as well. Might have something to do with it. .
.
Overall – 7.5/10, still one of the better protein cookies on the market and macro split is very good as far as competition goes but needs a bit of tweaking imo .

@prosupps_mycookiered velvet cookie – cals – 290 / Fat – 8 / carbs – 36 / Pro – 18g .
.
Visually it’s a very very deep red cookie with a white icing over the top. Very comparable macros in the protein cookie realm of things. Soft cookie as it breaks easy, and chews even easier. Dense texture, and Very subtle flavor that isn’t too strong but definitely is just enough. You get hit with red velvet then finishes with a smooth icing that’s almost makes it feel like it’s a cream cheese icing. Definitely was a fan of this cookie, and I’m not a huge red velvet kinda guy either. .
.
Overall – 8/10 , definitely a cookie to pick up and give a shot. Great job by @prosupps

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

Nice Cream! Banana Ice Cream

You scream, I scream, We all scream, for ICE CREAM!

I love ice cream just as much as the next guy. Heck, I live in the Dairy state(Wisconsin) so I have dairy in my blood. Ice cream is practically my blood type at this point in my life. Now, the issue with this is that I count macros(Flexible Dieting intro here), and I typically run pretty low fat (55-65G) a day so that unfortunately doesn’t leave to much room for a big bowl of full fat ice cream.  Now if this sounds like a similar situation you find yourself in, keep reading….. I got a solution for you.

18386996_10154356154892540_1810367093_n

What I have for you is a easy, delicious, and low fat ice cream option! You can make this gluten free, organic, all natural, dairy free, and all those other no no’s people cant have. 

Macros: Makes 1-2 servings(picture for reference)

  • Calories – 333 
  • Fat – 2.5g
  • Carbs – 67.8g
  • Protein – 17.1g

Ingredients: 

  • 270g Frozen Ripe Banana(You can freeze at any point depending on taste preference) 
  • .5-1 scoop Muscletech Vanilla Ice Cream Whey 
  • 2.0 oz Milk of choice 
  • Optional ingredients – Flavor Drops, Syrups, Fruit, Chocolate, Peanut butter, and anything else you would flavor ice cream with!

Instructions:

  1. Freeze your banana(I like to cut it into chunks)
  2. Once froze, place in food processor or blender. Start pulsing until a ice cream looking texture appears. It will get chunky first, then after a bit it will come together.
  3. Once you start to see your banana coming together, add in your protein, milk, and any other flavorings you want. In this particular pictured nice cream, I added in 5 drops of Toffee flavoring.
  4. Blend just a bit longer to bring everything together.
  5. You can choose to eat right away, or I like to put it into a Tupperware container and put it back in the freezer to harden up even more. Every 30 min – 1 hour take it out and stir it to help it freeze evenly.  
  6. Mix in your favorite ice cream toppings, or eat plain!

Break away from protein bars for a sec. I think powders are just as prevalent in our industry. .
@optimumnutrition Opti-fit Shake – .
200 cals / 3.5g fat / 16c / 25p / 6 fiber .

Now this is designed as a meal replacement shake. I do this this are valuable in the right circumstances. Gives you just a bit more than just a protein intake. Typically a good fiber content and vitamins and minerals.
.
Mixability on this product is slightly underwhelming. I would give it 5-6/10. Lots of chunks well drinking. Smells way better mixed up than it did in the tub. Mixes pretty watery and grainy unfortunately. I think that’s coming from the chickpea powder. Overall flavor was lacking as well, very weak vanilla flavor. Nutritional panel is very similar to the @gnclivewell leanshake, but doesn’t taste as good. .
Overall:
3/10
