You’d better fudge that Grenade bar if you don’t want to have anything that is only OK. Because this Fudge Brownie protein bar is nothing special. It’s just OK and I guess it’s not what you’re after here, right?

There are various protein bars in the Grenade range: the better ones, the worst ones and some of them in between. And if I could pick any of them, I’d find at least three or four that are better than this Fudge Brownie Grenade Bar. It’s not that it’s bad or terrible. Definitely not. But why should you pick worse one if you can get much better than that? And what actually makes this one not the best choice? Here’s the answer.

Judging by its fragrance, I’d say it’s a nearly perfect protein bar. Fudge Brownie aroma is well balanced with a milk chocolate scent, making it inviting and appealing. However, things are getting worse in the matter of the texture of this bar. It’s somewhat toughy on the outside, being only a bit softish on the inside. That means it’s not effortless and too comfortable to bite into it. Also, it’s a bit dryish. To sum that texture thing, it could be much better indeed. Anyway, let’s get to one of the most important thing, the taste.

Tasty and decently sweet, but not perfect.


There’s a lot of chocolate flavour in this protein bar. And less of fudge brownie aroma. It’s not the best news here, as these two flavours should be better balanced indeed. Also, as I mentioned before, it’s slightly dryish, affecting the overall experience. However, there’s no weird aroma or aftertaste. And that’s a good thing. And at the end of the day, this protein bar is tasty, decently sweet (but not too sweet) and satisfying. But still, there’s a room for improvement here.

Do I want another serving of this Fudge Brownie Grenade bar after the first one? Not actually. All of that, because it was decently sweet and satisfying. On the other hand, it could be a bit better, indeed. Therefore, one serving is OK for me.

In the meantime, let’s have a look at this bar to find out if it’s worth your macros for the day. A 60g bar has an OK 220 kcal, 8.4g of fat, only 15.2g of carbs (of which only 2g of sugar) and a surely good of 22.7g of protein. The ingredients list is also not that bad, as there’s no added sugar, no palm fat and no syrups. Pretty good.

In a word, not bad, but it’s still not perfect. Therefore, it’s not the finest protein bar on the go.

Would you fudge this Fudge Brownie protein bar?

I don’t want to say you should fudge this Fudge Brownie Grenade protein bar. All I say is it’s not as spectacular as some other Grenade bars are. And if I accidentally buy it, then after the last bite I’d say ‘mhm, not bad’. It’s neither praise or criticism. It’s more like ‘mhm, not bad. Let’s find something better next time’. And that’s what it is – not bad, but it won’t be my first choice. Or second. But if I get it somewhere, sometime, from someone, then OK, let it be.

Will I ever go back to this Grenade Fudge Brownie protein bar? Not actually. There are nowadays many better protein bars than this one. But if I get one, then I’ll definitely not bin it. Cruel, but true.

Final Verdict

It’s not as spectaculars as some other Grenade bars are. And if I accidentally buy it, then after the last bite I’d say ‘mhm, not bad’. It’s neither praise or criticism. It’s more like ‘mhm, not bad. Let’s find something better next time’. And that’s what it is – not bad, but not the first choice. Or even fifth. But if you get it somewhere, sometime, from someone, then OK, let it be.
