Although it contains as much as 26g of protein, I know much better ways to get that much protein. And even if I got this protein bar for free, I would bin it straight away. Sorry, Herr Weider.

Yes, I have had many Weider protein bars before. Some of them were better, some of them were worse than average. But this Weider 52% Protein Bar Banana Crisp Flavour is even worse than that. Unless you’re a fan of a metallic taste and aftertaste. But I guess most likely you are not. Neither am I.

Anyway, it doesn’t start that bad. Yes, this Weider 52% protein bar won’t impress you with its smell. It’s just OK-ish. There’s a bit of banana flavour and a bit less of chocolate touch. It’s nothing exciting, but it’s nothing repellent either. A really tough on the outside, this Banana Crisp protein bar is slightly toughish on the inside. It could be more comfortable to bite into it. And I wouldn’t mind if it was less chewy and sticky. But it’s not. And that’s the reason it’s middling effortless to eat. Oh, it also affects its texture, but that’s somewhat obvious, isn’t it?

The metallic flavour is not the best choice to impress (no only) heavy lifters.


Ok, I get it. You lift heavy, so metal-ish things are your reality, right? That sounds not too silly. However, I’m not too sure you’d ever want to taste it. And that’s what we’ve got here (again). A metallic taste is the first thing you’ll detect here. And it’s so strong it might put you off. Of course, there’s a touch of banana flavour. And a bit less of chocolate. But it doesn’t mean anything here. This Weider protein bar is dreadful in taste. And I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Seriously.

Do I want another serving of this Weider 52% Protein Bar Banana Crisp Flavour right after the first one? No way! Even if I had another one, I would… bin it straight away!

Macro wise, it’s pretty good. A 50g bar only has 179 kcal, 4.1g of fat, 14g of carbs (including only 1g of sugar) and a hefty 26g of protein. The ingredients list, however, contains palm oil. And that’s another reason this Weider protein bar is not worth much of your attention.

Don’t buy it. And if you already have it, then bin it straight away.


Weider 52% Protein Bar Banana Crisp Flavour

I didn’t want to say that, but it has happened already. Weider 52% Protein Bar Banana Crisp Flavour is a poor protein bar. It’s not too comfortable to eat, it’s terrible in taste and it could have better ingredients. Oh, it also has 26g of protein. But honestly, I know much better ways to get that amount of protein, like eating 120g of unseasoned chicken. It’s not too tasty either flavourish, but it would be definitely much better than this protein bar in every aspect.

Will I ever go back to this Weider 52% Banana Crisp protein bar? No chances for that at all, And if I ever get it for free, then I will give it back. Or bin it.
