This is one of the best vegan protein bar out there! Oatein has made it. It delivered. A protein bar that is lovely and luscious not only for vegans. Well done, guys.
I’m not into vegan, but I like to try vegan protein bars now and then to see how it goes on the other side. Recently, I have had an opportunity to put my hands on two new Barebells vegan protein bars, Salty Peanut and Hazelnut & Nougat. And honestly, they are meeeh, highly disappointing. I thought that Oatein wouldn’t make it better with its Oatein HYPE BAR Chocaholic Vegan Protein Bar. And I was sooo wrong! It turned out to be a spectacular protein bar for vegans and decently good not only for them. Keep on reading to find out why.
The smell. Honestly, it’s just OK. There’s a pleasant and clear, deep aroma of chocolate, but it could be way much intense. Also, there’s not even a whiff of plant-based protein and that’s definitely a good thing. But how about the texture of this Oatein protein bar? Well, it could be better, surely. It’s toughish on the outside, but it doesn’t make this protein bar too difficult to bite into it. The interior of this bar is softish than that, fortunately. The bar itself is a bit chewy and middling sticky. But again, it’s nothing you should not cope with. And trust me, as I’m pretty sensitive in this matter. I just don’t like struggling with my food, prefer enjoying and indulging in it. And this is what I found here.
This flavour is the best to enjoy and indulge yourself.
It does what it says on the
tin wrapper. This Chocaholic flavour is nearly perfect. And I don’t mean ‘perfect’ due to being vegan-friendly only. It’s sooo chocolatey. It has a deep and rich flavour of chocolate (say thank you to the couverture chocolate coating). It’s delicious, luscious and it tastes like it’s not a vegan protein bar. Also, there is not even a touch of plant-based protein flavour in it and it’s impressive. The bar itself is not too sweet (boo!), it’s rather sweetish. But I wouldn’t make an affair due to of that here. Anyway, it will easily make its way as a sweetish and highly satisfying protein snack.
Would I want to have another HYPE BAR vegan protein bar of this flavour straight after the first one? Surprisingly, but I definitely WOULD.
Macros wise, it’s always a strong point of Oatein protein bars. This first vegan-friendly one has only 192kcal, a solid 17.9g (28%) protein and only 0.5g of no added sugar. Also, its ingredients list looks good, as there’s no added sugar, no palm oil, no bad syrups. It’s low sugar and, obviously, vegan-friendly.
A decently good protein bar for everyone. And a great one for vegans.
Shockingly, this is a great protein bar. Oatein HYPE BAR Chocaholic Vegan Protein Bar proves you can have a luscious protein bar with good ingredients, good macros (17.9g of protein!) and pretty OK-ish texture even if you’re in #veganteam. However, I recommend to give it a try if you’re not. You won’t be left disappointed.
Would I buy it again? Definitely, I WOULD. It’s well worth it.
