This Protein Bar Elite is not too elite. And not too tasty. And 26g of protein won’t change much here. Because the Elite has the right to expect much more than this.
MyProtein has other Protein Bar Elite snacks in its portfolio. So far we reviewed Dark Chocolate & Berry and Toffee Vanilla flavours. And although both are not perfect and, most likely, not too elite, this MyProtein Elite Bar Caramel & Hazelnut is even worse. How is this possible?
Caramel & Hazelnut flavour is an interesting composition. And the smell of this protein bar confirms it. Sort of. This bar smells with caramel and milk chocolate (which is a milk chocolate flavour coat in fact). And it would be still OK, but where are hazelnuts here? It looks like nowhere. But still, it’s pretty appetising and inviting. A pretty soft on the outside, this bar is also softish on the inside. Therefore, there should be no problem with biting into it or chewing. It’s also noticeably chewy and slightly sticky. But it’s nothing to be worried about. Anyway, a sip or two may come in handy while eating this bar.
In the matter of taste, it’s… well… not too spectacular.
Although there’s a caramel layer covered by chocolate coating, the first flavour we taste in this Elite Bar is bitterness. Also, there are hazelnuts. But they’re more in the texture of this bar instead of its flavour.
I ate this MyProtein Elite Bar Caramel & Hazelnut and… I’m glad it’s over already. It was far from being tasty or delicious. Therefore, one serving is enough for me.
When it comes to macros, they’re OK. A 70g bar has 244 kcal, 7.5g of fat, 22g of carbs (of which 3.7g of sugar) and a solid serving of 26g of protein. The ingredients list contains palm fat. And that’s not too good news.
This means it can’t be the finest protein bar on the go.
Not for the elite. Not for Caramel & Hazelnut lovers.
This MyProtein Protein Elite Bar is nothing special. Instead of having Caramel and Hazelnut and being sweet, it’s more like a bitterish bar. And it’s definitely nothing that could convince anyone to give it a second chance.
Will I ever go back to this protein bar? Not actually. It doesn’t taste good, it has only OK macros and it has palm oil in the ingredients list. And this is enough for me to pass it over next time. The same as this great elite protein bar from Dymatize.
