This is brave. This Pro2Go is a protein bar that is not too comfortable to eat. And bragging it with its name of ‘gooey protein bar’. Respect, SCI-MX Nutrition, respect.

As you may know already, I’m not the greatest fan of snacks I have to struggle with. It regards a couple of things, like their firmness, ease of eating, moistness and so on. But guess what? SCI-MX Nutrition decided to make a gooey Pro2Go protein bar you most likely will be struggling with. Because its texture is gooey. Oh, wait…

By the way, this is a new series of Pro2Go protein snacks. The other ones we tested were pretty tasty Gooey Protein Bar Coconut & Milk Choc and Protein Flapjack Almond.

This protein bar smells lovely. There are blueberry and white choc (or ‘white coating’, according to the ingredients list) scents easily detectable. It’s not too sweet, but it’s pleasant and definitely inviting. A nicely soft on the outside, this protein bar is slightly toughish on the inside. Therefore, it may be a bit troublesome for some to bite into it. Also, this snack is decently thick and chewy (or gooey?), being also a bit dryish. Therefore, some jaws may feel eating it like a piece of workout. And last, but not least, it only barely sticks to the teeth.

This protein bar has a slightly sourish taste. And that taste is not a refreshing one.


More than that, the bar itself is not too sweet. Rather than that (what a surprise!) it’s gooey. And I’m not sure if it’s something I’m looking for in a sweet treat. Also, there are protein crisps, but due to the texture of the bar they are not noticeable. Anyway, a blueberry filling is pretty flavourish and pleasant. And everything would be pretty OK, but that white coating…

The front of the packaging of this Pro2Go gooey bar says ‘white choc’. The back of it, however, mentions ‘white coating’. And I guess if it were real white chocolate then there would not be a reason not to brag it on the ingredients list, right? But let’s leave it for now and ask our taste buddies what they think about it. And they say ‘what white chocolate flavour?’. So sorry, I don’t buy it. And please, SCI-MX Nutrition, correct me if I’m wrong.

Do I want another gooey serving after the first one? Not actually. What I was missing here was that promised white chocolate. Or at least its flavour. But there were none of it at all.

The micro-wise thing looks pretty OK. A 60g bar has 213 kcal, 7.5g of fat, 17g of carbs (of which only 2.1g of sugar) and a proper amount of 21g of protein. Not bad. However, the ingredients list contains added sugar and palm oil.

Therefore, it can’t be the finest protein bar on the go.

A good workout for jaw. And this is pretty interesting.


Pro2Go Gooey Protein Bar Blueberry & White Choc

Pro2Go Gooey Protein Bar Blueberry & White Choc is a funny bar. It wants to make a thing from the fact it’s not too comfortable to eat. Intentionally or not. So I don’t buy it. A protein treat must be as effortless to eat as possible. Period. And this one is not at all. And it’s not perfect (or at least very good) in a couple of other aspects.

That being said, there is no chance I will go back to this protein bar in the future.

Final Verdict

This is a fun bar. It wants to make a thing from the fact it’s not too comfortable to eat. Intentionally or not. And I don’t buy it. A protein treat must be as effortless to eat as possible. Period. And this one is not at all. And it’s not perfect (or at least very good) in a couple of other aspects.
