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’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.

Orgain Organic Protein Bars Review

Here’s my review on Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars. You know, I’m glad I gave these protein bars a second chance. This time, I really liked them. I was eating Clif Bars before this. I love Clif Bars, but it contains a lot of sugar. They’re awesome as a pre or post-workout snack though. I’ve read many reviews saying that Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars are very sweet. They’re actually not compared to Clif Bars. I noticed a decrease in sweetness when I switched over. Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars are a little bit more grainy. It’s something I’ve gotten used to by now. At first, it was weird, lol. They’re not that bad at all. Taste-wise, my ranking of the flavors (ones that I purchased) are…

  1. Cookie Dough
  2. Peanut Butter
  3. S’mores

S’mores was the sweetest out of the bunch, which is funny because it has 1 more gram of sugar compared to Cookie Dough (not a significant amount anyways, just mentioning it). Overall, I like these protein bars. 140 calories per bar with 10 grams of protein. It’s easier to portion control with them. I felt more satisfied and full when I eat these. With the Clif Bars, meh. It felt more like a candy bar with protein due to the high sugar. I would buy Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars again. I’m really happy with them this time around. I wish they would produce more flavors. It gets really boring when I only have four flavors to choose from.
