Garden of Life Organic Fit High Protein Weight Loss Bar (Chocolate Covered Cherry)

I’ve tried Garden of Life High Protein Weight Loss Bar before. At one point, I was addicted to them, haha. This time, I have Chocolate Covered Cherry. It’s a new flavor to me. This is what I think about it.

My Review:

These are the blandest protein bars out there. They don’t taste like what it’s called Chocolate Covered Cherry. Just a hint of that flavor. It’s barely there. They are soft in texture. Somewhat similar to a brownie, which I like. Even though they are bland, I really do like these. They make a satisfying treat that’s low in sugar. There’s only 1 gram of sugar (0 grams of added sugar) per bar. That’s why these protein bars are tasteless. Each bar contains 200 calories with 14 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber.

Do I recommend these? Once again, they are satisfying. I do enjoy having them early in the morning with my breakfast or alone. Since they contain Green Coffee Bean Extract, it wakes me up quickly. But, I realize that I am very sensitive to caffeine. I get really hyper when I consume caffeine, lol. That’s why I don’t drink coffee with caffeine as much anymore. I choose decaf whenever possible. These protein bars (to me) are very addicting due to the caffeine in it, so I only purchase them once after a couple of months for a nice low sugar, high protein snack. Yes, I would recommend them if you can handle a snack that’s bland.

Ingredients:

Organic soluble tapioca fiber‚ organic vegetable glycerin‚ organic pea protein‚ organic almonds‚ organic chocolate coating (organic cacao nibs‚ organic erythritol‚ organic tapioca fiber‚ organic cocoa butter‚ natural licorice flavor‚ organic stevia extract (leaf)‚ organic sunflower lecithin‚ organic vanilla bean extract)‚ organic pea crisps (organic pea protein‚ organic starch)‚ organic sprouted brown rice protein‚ organic cacao‚ organic acacia fiber‚ organic tart cherry‚ organic carob‚ organic flavor‚ organic svetol® green coffee bean extract‚ organic ashwagandha‚ sea salt‚ organic cinnamon.

Raw Rev Glo (Mixed Nuts, Caramel & Sea Salt)

Remember Raw Rev Glo Protein Bars? One of my favorite flavors is Mixed Nuts, Caramel, & Sea Salt. This is what I think about them now.

My Review:

I still feel the same way as I did before in my last review. It’s healthy and tasty at the same time. It’s filling too. This protein bar makes it feel like I’m eating a candy bar. I would definitely purchase these again soon. 🙂

Ingredients:

Raw Rev Nutty Superfood Blend (raw cashews, peanuts, raw almonds, pea protein, organic brown rice protein, raw organic hemp protein, raw organic virgin coconut oil, raw organic chia seeds, raw organic sprouted flax seeds) isomalto-oligosaccharides (prebiotic fiber from tapioca), organic Italian dark chocolate chips (cane sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), pea protein crisps, natural flavors, organic brown rice syrup, sea salt.

Have you tried any of these protein bars? Did you like them? 🙂

Review: OWYN Plant Based Bar Chocolate Chip Cranberry

I’m back to testing out vegan protein bars and snacks. This brand right here, OWYN (Only What You Need) is new to me. The first flavor I purchased is Chocolate Chip Cranberry. This is what it looks like when I opened the package.

Here are the Nutrition Facts.

Here’s the real deal. It’s packed with pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, chocolate chips, dried cranberries. Sounds good.

What do you think?

I’ve gone through 7 bars already. Not in one day. Over a span of time, haha. I think this flavor isn’t for everyone. You really need to become aquainted with the flavor. It’s not the most tastiest. It’s bland. It’s one of those ‘clean’ tasting bars out there. The texture is chewy and crunchy at the same time. The crunchiness comes from the pumpkin seeds.

Even though it wasn’t the best tasting bar, I thought it was very satisfying. Possibly due to the nuts and seeds in it. I wouldn’t classify this as a ‘protein bar’. It’s more like a snack bar. I mean, 240 calories for 10 grams of protein isn’t that much. My Orgain Organic Protein Bar contains 140 calories and 10 grams of protein. That’s more protein for 140 calories.

Would I recommend this bar? Honestly, I don’t feel the urge to buy it again. Only if it was a last resort.

So have you tried OWYN bars before? Share your experience and thoughts!

Review: Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars

September 7, 2019 UPDATE: I have two bars left. I’m having a hard time finishing them. I changed my mind. I will not buy these ever again anywhere. I never knew I could hate pumpkin seeds this much. The flavor/taste of the bar isn’t for me.

Love, Jen
