Strawberries and yoghurt, delicious, right? You’re wrong! Very, very wrong! If you’d like the flavour of strawberries and yoghurt, I suggest you eat them instead of choosing this protein bar!
By reading my reviews up now, you must have guessed that Foodspring really isn’t my favourite protein brand and are actually one that I would happily avoid! All their bars so far have been terrible and very disappointing! The worst definitely being their chocolate brownie protein bar (its review to be up soon)! So if we’re comparing, at least this bar isn’t as bad as that, even though it is still terrible!
There is a definite smell of strawberries to this bar, which you’d hope for. As for how appealing that smell is, I’m not so sure. It has a bitter aroma which sits quite strongly in the background. If it wasn’t for the scent of strawberries being there too, I think the bitterness would take over the bar completely! This protein bar is very chewy and with the added yoghurt flavour, quite sickly too.
Strawberry yoghurt protein bar or an actual strawberry yoghurt? I know which one I’d prefer to eat!
So, this Foodspring Strawberry Yoghurt protein bar is just as bad as the rest of the Foodspring range I have reviewed up to now! It’s bitter, artificial and leaves a very pungent taste in your mouth afterwards. Although there are hints of strawberries and yoghurt throughout this bar, there is an overpowering taste of bitterness, which leaves a horrible artificial flavour in your mouth that you can’t get rid of easily! In no way is this protein bar comfortable to eat and is anything but enjoyable!
I would surely not be able to eat another bar of this flavour right after this one. I would definitely be able to throw one of these bars in the bin instead, probably with a smile on my face too!
Again, the macros for all of the Foodspring protein bars in this range have been very good, along with their ingredients. It doesn’t make me like these bars at all, but it does mean that I don’t score them negative marks in this aspect! A 60g bar contains 192kcal, 5.3g fat, 11g carbs (of which 3.7g sugars) and 20g protein. Their ingredients are also very decent and don’t contain glucose-fructose syrup, added sugar or palm oil. For this, I am happy to say they’ve done well, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about this protein bar as a whole!
Artificial and bitter! I’d much rather have a strawberry yoghurt and enjoy it!
Why are these bars so disappointing? I understand strawberries and yoghurt are a sweet combination, but it shouldn’t be bitter and artificial. Foodspring seriously need to go back to the drawing board and produce something better, much better!
Would I eat this Foodspring Strawberry Yogurt protein bar again? Hell no!
