As much as 23g of protein per bar. Low in sugar. And suitable for vegan. That sounds pretty promising. And this is what a new PhD SmartBar Plant Choc Coconut & Cashew protein bar is like.
This is another plant-based SmartBar from the latest PhD range. Another one I reviewed a while ago, Choc Toffee Popcorn, was a pretty exciting experience. And I really liked it. This one is totally different and… it’s not too bad after all. And similarly, it’s all around a friendly low sugar and gluten free bar, suitable for vegetarians and vegan. Is PhD SmartBar Plant Choc Coconut & Cashew protein bar a perfect one? Let’s find it out.
This protein bar smells interesting. There are coconut and cashew aromas easily detectable, but it lacks a bit of chocolate. But that’s OK, as it’s still pretty inviting. A decently tough on the outside, this bar is pleasantly softish and crumbly on the inside. Therefore, no problem with biting into it. It’s also virtually no chewy at all and only slightly sticky. And many may find it easy to eat without a sip.
Natural flavours all the way.
This PhD Plant protein bar tastes exciting. Although its flavour is not too intense, there’s no problem with distinguishing all the flavours in it. Choc, coconut & cashew compliment each other pretty well. And although there’s a slight touch of pea protein I’m not the greatest fan of, it’s still OK. It doesn’t affect the overall experience nearly at all. Instead of that, it adds a feeling of eating something that seems to be purely natural. A pretty nice feeling. And yes, this protein bar is not too sweet. But at the same time, in some way, it’s satisfying indeed. And last, but not least, there’s no weird aroma or aftertaste in it. Well done.
Do I want another serving of this plant-based protein bar after the first one? Well, if I had some extra calories left for the day chances are I’d ask for a bit more of it.
How about the macros of this protein bar? It’s not too bad, considering it’s a plant-based bar. A 64g bar has 256 kcal, 12g of fat, only 6.9g of carbs (of which only 1.9g of sugar) and a decently good amount of 23g of protein. Pretty nice. The ingredients list is also worth mentioning, as there’s no added sugar, no palm fat or syrups. Well done.
Can it be the finest protein bar on the go then? It was so close to that. However, this bar is a bit too tough on the outside. Therefore, sorry, no title this time.
A pleasant and purely ‘natural feeling’ protein bar.
PhD SmartBar Plant Choc, Coconut & Cashew protein bar is worth your attention. Even if you’re not vegan. It has a refreshing taste, it has OK macros, even better ingredients. And once you eat the entire one, you may feel like you want to have another one. Therefore, go and have it. And don’t forget to try all four flavours of them. Just to make your own opinion about it.
Will I ever go back to this plant protein bar? There’s a chance for that for sure. Especially, if I want something not too sweet, but still packed with loads of protein.
