If this is what lemon cake tastes like, then remind me to never have a lemon cake again! Luckily, I know that lemon cake is nothing like this ONE protein bar! THANKFULLY!

ONE’s protein bar range has been nothing other than disappointing! This ONE Lemon Cake protein bar is no different from the rest! It’s a shame they aren’t all as tasty as their Plant range, as that was much more enjoyable! How ONE decided this was a delicious protein bar I have no idea!

Sharp, citrusy lemons, what better smell? Well if this ONE protein bar is anything to go by, then I think there are a lot of better scents I can think of! There is a slight lemon smell to this protein bar, but it’s so slight due to the overriding stench of sucralose and strong bitter aroma which sits alongside this protein bar! It’s hard on the outside with a very chewy, sticky inner consistency, which doesn’t feel too kind in your mouth. 

When life gives you lemons… throw this protein bar away!


Nothing about this ONE Lemon Cake protein bar is well-balanced or tasty in the slightest! How they managed to ruin a tart, sharp lemon flavour and instead make it scream artificial sweetener and sucralose I have no idea. But they did! Prepare to have a bottle of water on hand if you want to try this protein bar, as you’ll need it to rid the sweetener flavour! Why did they have to ruin a delicious flavour combination? As I’m sure you guessed it, nothing about this protein bar is comfortable to eat, or enjoyable in the slightest! In fact, I was glad when it was over!

Absolutely not would I be able to eat another ONE protein bar of this flavour after this one! If I could have eaten less of this one, then I would have!

ONE Lemon Cake Flavoured Protein Bar

As a brand, ONE packs excellent macros in their protein bars. Yet lack flavour, this seems to be their brief! A 60g bar contains 210kcal, 7g fat, 22g carbs (including a tiny 1g sugar) and 20g protein. I would congratulate them on their low sugar if this protein bar managed to taste anything other than artificial. Therefore I’m not surprised their sugar is this low! They do, however, have palm oil in their ingredients alongside natural flavours too!

Spend more calories and actually enjoy a slice of lemon cake instead!


ONE Lemon Cake Flavoured Protein Bar

What a disappointment this ONE Lemon Cake protein bar turned out to be! Not that I was surprised considering it’s a ONE bar after all! If you fancy a protein bar which tastes purely of sucralose and disappointment, then this protein bar is for you! In fact, I would suggest ONE as a brand! Yet, I’m going to assume you want a protein bar which tastes delicious and enjoyable. In that case, run as far away as possible from this bar and this non-plant range!

Would I eat this ONE Lemon Cake protein bar again? Are you crazy? Of course, I wouldn’t!
