A tiny Solo Bar from Warrior. Although pretty strong in macros, it’s so different from the Warrior Crunch range. And I’m not sure it’s something I’d want to experience once again.
This is a pretty new range of Solo Bars from Warriors. And this is one of just two flavours available at the moment (stay tuned for the review of another one, Double Chocolate flavour). And as this bar is a pretty interesting protein-ish snack on the go, it’s not something that would create a fuss on the protein bar market. Eventually, it would have to be much better in one aspect to make it a spectacular one. This is Warrior Solo Bar Lemon Cheesecake flavour.
It starts pretty lovely, as this protein snack smells not too bad. It has a fragrance of white chocolate and cheesecake with a touch o lemon. Its aroma is pretty OK, but it’s not overwhelming. Anyway, a really soft on the outside, this bar is on a par on the inside. That means one thing – there’s not a shadow of a doubt anyone could have a problem with biting into it. Also, it’s barely chewy and hardly sticky. And its moistness is spot on. But there’s one issue with that protein snack after all. Its taste.
It could be much tastier, definitely.
This protein bar could be much tastier than it is. The objection is the implementation of a lemon flavour. Or rather its zest. The thing is, the bar itself is pretty tasty, as there’s somewhat easily detectable cheesecake flavour in it. However, there’s also an extra flavour of lemon zest that makes this protein bar bitterish. You know, it’s definitely not a lemon flavour. It’s lemon zest flavour. And it’s not too pleasant, tasty or appealing. As a result of that, this bar is not too sweet (it’s rather sweetish), not telling about being a satisfying one.
Therefore, although it’s a pretty tiny bar, one serving of this Warrior Solo Bar Lemon Cheesecake is enough for me.
So as it’s a tiny bar (it only weighs 35g), it’s macros are not too biggish. A single bar only has 118 kcal, 4.2g of fat, 10.5g of carbs (including only 1.4g of sugar) and a modest amount of 11g of fat. That means it’s more like a protein snack than a regular protein bar. Anyway, the ingredients list is free from added sugar, palm oil and syrups. Not bad.
Can it be the finest protein bar on the go? Not actually. Despite its somewhat ‘fair’ flavour, it’s also too lean in its macros.
Eat it solo. Don’t share with anybody.
Warrior Solo Bar Lemon Cheesecake flavour is a great bar to eat on your own. And not to share with others. All of that, because it’s not worth sharing with anybody. It could make them a bit offended, as this bar is not too tasty. And even ignoring it, its underpowered macros make it only a so-so snack while out and about.
Will I ever go back to this Warrior Solo Bar? I won’t. It’s not even the matter of its macros, as they’re pretty easy to fit into any plan. It’s all about its taste that is not too good. It could definitely be much better than it is right now. Can you hear me, Warrior?
P.S. If you want Lemon Cheesecake flavoured protein bar, then see this one from another Warrior range. It’s well worth it.
