Forget about this Birthday (Cake Cookie). It has nothing to do with the celebration of any kind. And it’s definitely nothing enjoyable. In other words, bin it or ruin with it any occasion worth being memorable.
Well, this is one of the first and latest protein filled cookie from USN. The other flavour we reviewed recently, Cookies & Cream, turned out to be disappointingly and frustratingly poor, primarily in the taste. It had nothing to do with that beloved Cookies & Cream flavour and we clearly wrote about it. Anyway, after that experience, I was not too sure what this USN TRUST Filled Protein Cookie Birthday Cake will bring. Somewhere there, I didn’t have any big hope when it comes to it. And, unfortunately, I was right.
If you’re OK with a Birthday Cake that smells only like a cookie, then that’s not a problem here. As this is what we’ve got here. But, you know, I’m not. There’s too much of cookie aroma in this snack and just a bit, just a little touch of Birthday Cake-like aroma. And I wouldn’t be too much startled if you said you couldn’t sniff it at all. Anyway, this cookie is really soft (but a bit thick) both on the outside and inside. That means it’s pretty comfortable to bite into it. However, at the same time, it’s decently chewy and a bit sticky. But on the other side, it’s moistness is somewhat OK.
Nothing to celebrate in this filled protein cookie.
How to say it mildly? This protein cookie is a not bad introduction to an unhappy celebration of any kind. Seriously. It’s full of cookie flavour and just a bit of Birthday Cake aroma. What’s more, that aroma is not too flavourish and eventually, it’s pretty bland. And if it was not enough, this USN filled cookie is distinctly bitterish in taste (and that’s nothing new). Also, this protein snack is not sweet too. Put all these things together and you’ll get a picture not-so-perfect of this protein cookie.
Do I want another serving of this USN Filled Protein Cookie right after the first one? Well, much more than that, I wanted this ‘celebration cookie’ to come to an end. Have you ever been to such a party?
Macro wise it’s not too bad considering it’s a cookie after all. A 75g cookie has 255 kcal, 8.2g of fat, 21g of carbs (of which only 1.1g of sugar) and a rounded 20g of protein. The ingredients list contains palm oil and it’s not a good introduction to any party for sure.
Stop the party! There’s nothing to celebrate here!
USN TRUST Filled Protein Cookie Birthday Cake is not the cookie you’d want to have. Or celebrate with. It’s not flavourish, but bitterish. And it could have better ingredients. Other than that, it’s not bad, after all. But, as you may assume, Birthday anything is special kind of things and it should be spectacular. But this one is not.
Will I ever go back to this USN Birthday Cake cookie? I will NOT. It wasn’t worth my attention (not telling about my macros) and I guess it won’t be yours. Therefore, although it seems to be tempting (who doesn’t like Birthdays?!), it’s not like that in reality. Boo.
