Do not TRUST this flapjack. There’s no chocolate in it. And it’s not ‘guilty free’. It is nice smelling, but still an average flapjack. And a pretty unsatisfying one.

Some protein snacks are highly habitual liars. You know, they promise something you won’t find while you unwrap them. All those promises regarding their texture, smell, taste(!) or other aspects. We really don’t like such misleading tricks. Like a picture of the fruit that is not in the snack itself, like Cranberry and Blueberry flavour from this range does. That’s why we are always happy to correct them, just for you. And here’s what we need to do again. Because this USN TRUST Chocolate Caramel protein flapjack is nothing you can trust. And here’s why.

USN TRUST Chocolate Caramel Flavour Protein Flapjack

Let’s start from the smell, as it’s the first thing you’ll notice while unwrapping it. Or any other snack. It’s pretty appealing, as there are chocolate scent and a bit of caramel aroma both detectable. That combination is slightly sweet, but we wouldn’t mind if it’s a bit more intense. However, it’s nice and appealing. Pretty soft flapjack is easy to bite into and chew. And it’s only slightly chewy and barely sticks to your teeth. Not bad for the beginning, right? And then…

Did someone said ‘chocolate caramel flavour’? What does it actually mean? What is that? Where it is in this protein flapjack?


Is there a chocolate or chocolate flavour? Caramel or caramel flavour? Or both? We are not sure, but that bronze cover of flapjack is just ‘chocolate flavour cover’ and has nothing to do with chocolate. It reminds us of some kind of poor tasting chocolate-like something and it’s oversweet. There’s also no real caramel per se, only ‘plain caramel’ used for colouring. Nothing we’d want to trust.

But that’s not the end. There’s also a bitterish aftertaste, what is nothing to be expected here. That composition is not well balanced indeed. Yes, this treat will make its way as a sweet protein snack, but it’s pretty far from being a decent, satisfying snack. Oh, soya crisps make it slightly crunchy, but it doesn’t change much here.

Do we want another serving after the first one? Naaah, we don’t think so. This flapjack is simply disappointing.

Can macros be the reason to choose this treat? Not much either. A 70g flapjack delivers 281 kcal, 11g of fat, 34g of carbs (of which 11g of sugar) and an average 15g of protein. Could be better, much better, considering there’s palm oil on the ingredients list.

Can it be the finest protein flapjack on the go? Can’t do.

Do not TRUST this flapjack.


Not that it is terrible flapjack. But it’s nothing to be bothered, though. And we don’t TRUST it. Chocolate? Not here. Caramel? Not here. High protein? Only 15g. Guilt-free? We don’t think so. Hmm… Is there anything trustworthy at all? We don’t guess so!

They promise it’s a flapjack. And it is indeed. But it’s far from being trustworthy and satisfying one.

Will we ever go back to this protein flapjack? Would you ever go back to someone you don’t trust? We thought so… So no, we won’t come back to it. Because it’s nothing to be worth coming back to. And it’s unTRUSTworthy. Period.

P.S. But there’s another TRUSTworthy protein flapjack out there, conditionally. Or TRUST CRUNCH one that, what a surprise, is not so.
