I knew it! I knew it wouldn’t be anything pleasant to review this protein bar. And I was right. But somehow, I couldn’t wait for it. A paradox? Definitely. But in a way, I’m still waiting for at least somewhat tasty BioTechUSA Zero Bar. Not this time, unfortunately.
BioTechUSA Zero Bar Protein Bars are not coming from the USA. But you already know it, right? What you also may know, we previously reviewed a couple of them, like Chocolate Chip Cookies flavoured and Cappuccino flavoured. None of them scored overall higher than 5/10 pts. A disaster, indeed. And I’ve got not better news here. This one is on par with them. Overall, it’s a mediocre protein bar. How about its taste then? Well, there’s even worse news here, I’m afraid.
Let’s get to the point. This protein bar doesn’t smell good. Instead of chocolate and banana aroma, you get a whiff of pretty riped banana. Yep, some may like it but for many, it might be not enough to grab it. Anyway, a really tough on the outside, this protein bar is somewhat softish on the inside. It’s middling comfortable to bite into it eventually. Also, it’s not too chewy and it’s barely sticky. Oh, and its moistness is pretty OK. So to sum it up, its texture is not too bad, but it could be improved a bit definitely.
Oh, dear. That flavour is
terrible not a surprise at all.
BioTechUSA Zero Bar Chocolate-Banana flavoured bar has a specific taste. A taste of bitterness. A pretty intense bitterness. Also, there’s a bit of banana peel aroma in it. And virtually no chocolate aroma at all. Well, do I need to say it means the flavour of this protein bar is not well balanced? Also, its bitterness is one of that annoying one, spreading not only to your taste buds, but also to your… nose. I know, it may seem to be strange, but it’s exactly like that. What to do? What to say? More than that, this protein bar is not even sweetish, not telling being sweet. Or satisfying. Hence, such a low score in this department.
Do I want another serving of this… Well, it was not too comfortable to eat the entire serving. Therefore, you should know the answer to that question, right?
What always makes me surprised in these bars are their macros. Let’s forget they are given for 100g only (hence, -1 pt in this department). A 50g bar has only 177 kcal, 7.5g of fat, 5.5g of carbs (and only 0.45g of sugar!) and a pretty good 20g of protein. Impressive. The ingredients list, however, is not so exciting, as it contains palm fat.
Therefore, it can’t be the finest protein bar on the go. Besides that, how would you want to indulgence yourself in THIS flavour?
A disgusting protein bar. With ZERO fun factor.
BioTechUSA Zero Bar Chocolate-Banana Flavoured bar is terrible. I mean, its taste is awful. And whatever the other aspects of this bar are, this one is enough to say ‘do not buy it’. And that’s what I say ‘do NOT buy it, it’s terrible’.
Will I ever go back to this BiotechUSA Zero Bar? I won’t. Even if I get it for free.
