Delicious, rich and surely moreish. This protein bar may be small, but is definitely worth it! Hand me another, please!

This is the first Applied Nutrition protein bar I have tried and let me tell you we are off to a fantastic start! As a brand, Applied Nutrition has always caught my eye, but I’ve never got round to trying any of their bars! I know these are relatively new and also vegan for those aiming to hit a vegan diet. Personally, even I’d opt for this bar because it was delicious!

Everyone knows what chocolate smells like and as far as I know, everyone loves it! This bar gives you that exact smell of chocolate we all love! It smells rich and heavenly, and makes you want to get stuck right in! Yes, the outside of this bar is very solid, but it is a crispy bar which makes sense for it to be hard. The texture does mould in your mouth. All the elements of the bar seem to break apart and you get to taste each one on its own. This protein bar isn’t sticky or moist, but the crispy pieces do make this bar have a really nice chewy and crispy element. 

The layer of dark chocolate which tops this bar is very impressive!


Belgian chocolate caramel, what can go wrong? In this case, nothing has gone wrong and instead Applied Nutrition have knocked this protein bar out the park! Although I’m not sure how much caramel I can taste, I am taken back by a very impressive dark chocolate layer which sits on top of this bar. This is easily the thickest layer of chocolate I’ve ever seen on a protein bar! Add that to the fact it actually tastes like chocolate should and we are onto a definite winner! There is no bitter or artificial flavour from this Applied Nutrition bar, which makes it extremely satisfying to eat. I would go as far as saying this protein bar would pass off as a sweet treat as well! 

If I had another Applied Nutrition Vegan Indulgence Belgian Chocolate Caramel protein bar to hand, then absolutely I’d eat another one straight away!

For what this bar is, I think the macros are okay. This bar does weigh a small 50g, but I’d be happy to have this as a sweet treat. Also, I think you can’t moan at the macros. However, if you’re comparing these macros to some protein bars, yes, they don’t hold up! A small 50g bar contains 226kcal, 11g fat, 11.7g carbs (of which 10.1g sugars) and 15.3g protein. As for their ingredients, there isn’t anything in there I don’t like. And they’ve also added natural flavourings too! 

I’m still drooling over that thick dark chocolate layer and those crispies!
