A tiny energy bar with chocolate flavour. Without too much of chocolate. And giving not much energy. It can’t be a recipe for success.
And it’s not, actually, as this is the worst SiS GO energy bar we’ve reviewed so far. And that’s some kind of surprise, as SiS has pretty good energy bars in its offer, like Red Berry and… ahem… that’s it. Oops! Anyway, this Chocolate Fudge flavour joins the bottom of the range with not so energising overall score of…
But before that, let’s have a look at this SiS GO energy bar from the perspective. A perspective of its smells which is not too inviting. This energy bar smells like porridge oats mixed with a small amount of chocolate whey protein. In other words, it’s not too fragrant or delicious. But it’s not discouraging either. It’s somewhat softish on the outside, being pretty soft on the inside. It means there should be not much trouble to bite into it. However, it’s pretty chewy, but at the same time, it’s not too sticky. But still, some may say it’s not too comfortable to eat.
Chocolate flavour? What chocolate flavour?
This SiS Go bar is supposed to taste like Chocolate (Fudge). But there’s hardly chocolate anything in it. Instead of that, it tastes more like a berry bar. Or even raisin bar. With the addition of sourish aroma. And it wouldn’t be so bad if it was refreshing. But it’s pretty far from being so. Also, it’s not too sweet; it’s actually barely sweet. Therefore, it won’t make its way as a sweet treat, not telling about being satisfying.
Do I want another serving of this SiS GO energy bar after the first one? Not much. It’s not too chocolaty. And it’s not refreshing.
This is a tiny bar that weighs 40g. And its macros are not too big either. A single bar has only 138 kcal, 1.7g of fat (very good!), 26g of carbs (a bit too little) and 4.7g of protein (a bit too much). It’s not bad, but it’s not a pure energy bar after all. The ingredients list is pretty good, as there’s no added sugar(!), no palm fat, no syrups.
And although everything looks not that bad above, due to its taste and slightly underpowered macros it can’t be considered the finest energy bar on the go.
An underpowered chocolate energy bar without chocolate.
That’s amazing. This SiS GO Energy Bar Chocolate Fudge has not much energy. And not much chocolate flavour. And although it is somewhat comfortable to eat and it has really good ingredients, it’s still nothing worth coming back to or stocking.
Will I ever go back to this energy bar? Not actually. If I wanted a real energy bar, then I would go for this one, much tastier and truly refreshing.
