Gluten free. Dairy free. Wheat free. Peanuts free. And (nearly) taste free. This is Creative Nature Superfoods Cacao Orange Flapjack 21% Protein.
If I had to point the one thing I don’t like in any protein snacks, it definitely would be their low weight. We already had Proteinissimo Protein Bars, Chocolate Coffee Cake flavour and Chocolate Raspberry Cream flavour, that weight just 30g. Or Weider White Classic Pack 27% Protein that weights only 35g. That’s not too much. And this Creative Nature Superfood Cacao Orange Flapjack weights 40g. Still, not too much. Because a real protein snack starts at its weight of 50g or more. Or something.
Anyway, this one weights not too much and it smells not too much too. There’s a bit of cacao scent detectable, along with an orange aroma. And there’s that specific whiff of pea protein too. Therefore, it’s nothing too inviting. But, for a change, it’s soft, so there’s no problem with biting into it and chewing. And it’s not too chewy, only barely trying to stick to the teeth. On top of that, this flapjack is not too dry, so it shouldn’t be a problem for many to eat it without a sip. Or with just a small one.
When it comes to its taste, you shouldn’t expect anything spectacular.
Cacao flavour? Checked. Orange flavour? Checked. Or should I rather say it’s more like a slightly bitterish orange peel than an orange flavour? Anyway, both are pretty pleasant in taste, but not too intense. As a result of that, this protein flapjack is not too sweet, not saying satisfying. Oh, and there’s no weird aroma or aftertaste.
Do I want another Cacao Orange flapjack after the first serving? Although it weighs only 40g, it’s OK for me. Thank you, I’ll take something else instead of this. Or this.
The macros thing looks not bad. In a 40g flapjack, there is 151 kcal, only 3.9g of fat, 18g of carbs (including 13g of naturally occurring sugar) and a tiny amount of 8g of protein. The ingredients list doesn’t contain added sugar or palm fat or syrups. And there is natural flavouring too.
All of that looks not so bad, but it still can’t be the finest protein flapjack on the go.
A tiny bit of nature with a tiny amount of protein.
Creative Nature Superfoods Cacao Orange Flapjack 21% Protein is an excellent flapjack when it comes to its ingredients and macros. And it’s not too bad when it comes to its taste. And if you prefer better ingredients and macros to the taste, then this may be a good option for you.
Will I ever go back to this protein flapjack? There are chances for that, but I’m not going to go to all the stores around to find it. So one day, if there’s an occasion for that, why not?
