It’s not as awesome as it says for sure. But it’s decently good and tasty. And even if you’re not into a vegan or plant-based protein stuff, it might be something you’ll like.
We have already had another AWESOME protein bar, Raspberry Ripple Blondie, that turned out to be not so awesome after all. And before having this one, I didn’t expect much of it. To my surprise, it turned out I was wrong. This AWESOME Protein Bar Caramel Crunch Brownie is decently good and tasty. And it’s better than some non-plant-based protein bars. And that IS a thing.
The smell. It’s highly inviting, as you can easily notice a sweet and nice aroma of brownie with a sweet addition to it. Also, what is not an obvious thing in this kind of protein bars, there’s no pea protein whiff in it. Nice. The bar itself is easy to eat, as it’s soft both on the outside and inside. No problem with biting into it, then. The texture thing, the bar is not much chewy, but it’s a bit sticky. But it’s still doesn’t ruin a pretty nice and pleasant experience in this matter.
Can I have a bit more caramel, please?
It’s tasty. And delicious. Brownie aroma is strong and pleasant, tickling the roof of the mouth nicely. A caramel layer hidden under dark chocolate coating adds a charming sweetness, but I wouldn’t mind if it was even more robust and sharp. This would make the flavours of this this protein bar more balanced. Anyway, there’s only a barely detectable touch of pea protein, but it’s barely noticeable and doesn’t make a mess here. The bar is not overly sweet, but at the same time, it’s above the average of the ordinary plant-based bar. That’s why it will make its way as a sweet and satisfying protein snack.
Am I fancy another AWESOME-ness of this flavour in one sitting? If I was into vegan-friendly bars, then I definitely would!
When it comes to macros, these numbers are slightly above the average for a vegan bar. A 60g bar packs 259kcal and a solid 18.7g (31%) protein. Sugar content is reasonably low at 2.7g. Not too bad. The ingredients list is not too short, but it looks OK. There’s not much to complain about it.
It’s a decently good and tasty vegan protein bar. And even if you’re not into this stuff, then feel free to give it a try.
AWESOME Protein Bar Caramel Crunch Brownie is not awesome for sure. But it’s decently good. It has an inviting smell, really nice texture, really good taste, reasonable macros and pretty OK ingredients. It’s better than many non-plant-based protein bars. And the majority of these plant-based ones.
Will I ever go back to this AWESOME protein bar? Not that I will rush for it, but I wouldn’t say ‘NO’ if I find it for a reasonable price.
