Evidence-Based Health Review
I was in the mood for a chocolate flavoured protein bar post-workout, so I thought I would review some of Optimum Nutritions Whipped Protein Bar range as it had been some time.
I am a huge fan of Optimum Nutrition’s products and have been using them for many years now, especially their protein powders which are quality and very tasty.
Anyway back to the Rocky Road flavour Whipped Protein Bar review….
Rocky road is one of my favorite treats so I was really looking to see how the taste and flavour of this protein bar was going to be and if it would live up to my expectations.
The Rocky Road Whipped Protein Bar was very delicious as expected, nice rich indulgent chocolate flavour with the authentic rocky road sweet taste.
Nice soft whipped base and the top layer is infused with crispy/crunchies which gives the protein bar some extra bite and filling.
For anyone looking for a Rocky Road flavour protein bar, you won’t be disappointed with this one from Optimum Nutrition.
The Rocky Road Whipped Protein Bar provides a good 20 grams of protein per bar, which at £2.00 it is slightly cheaper than most competitor brands providing similar protein content.
High in fiber(6.5g per bar) and also low in sugar(1.5g per bar), which for the delicious chocolate taste it has is very impressive.
Also free of Palm oil.
Overall another very tasty protein bar from Optimum Nutrition.
The Rocky Road Whipped Protein Bar makes for a nice guilt-free treat and provides a good dose of protein in the process, whilst also being low in sugar and high in fiber.
At £2.00 it is slightly cheaper than competitor brands so for that reason the Optimum Nutrition Whipped Protein Bars get another plus from us here at Evidence-Based Health.
