Yes, there are much 'nicer' tasting protein bars on the market, but they are NOT helping you maintain/lose weight. As an endomorph (holds more fat/puts muscle on easier - usually of European descent) with fairly poor insulin sensitivity, unless I am doing a very heavy legs day at gym, I have to be very careful with my carb intake. At 6'1", 92kg 11%bf, I have to limit myself to 50gm low gycaemic carbs for maintenance purposes (ecto/endomorphs can consume upwards of 200gm) on weight training days and as little as possible on rest/cardio/fasting days. These bars fit the bill perfectly.
Probably the best valued high protein/low carb bar on the market. 40gm of protein for $3 in a quickly consumed bar is decent - filling too. I have one every night with cold almond milk as my dessert.
PS. The chocolate is pretty gross but the cookies & cream is decent.
EDIT: Online orders have MAX of qty: 8 per flavour. I just went instore an purchased the 10 they had then got them to order in 40 more which will arrive tomorrow. So head instore if you're after more then 8.
There is no denying, protein immediately after training is crucial in supporting muscle growth and recovery – and popping a chicken breast in your gym bag might not be ideal. That’s why our HPLC Bar provides protein the convenient way. With 45g protein per bar it’s the perfect post-workout pick up. Because we know you put everything into your workout. Get everything out of it..
