Not so gooey, but still pretty good Pro2Go protein bar. At least as long as you like that specific coconut flavour.
Let’s have it done straight away. This is a protein bar from the latest Pro2Go Gooey range from SCI-MX Nutrition. Yes, we know. There’s a ‘tiny’ mess when it comes to branding of their bars which I wrote more about it while reviewing SCI-MX Chocolate & Hazelnut Protein Flapjack. Anyway, this Pro2go Coconut & Milk Chocolate gooey protein bar may seem to be similar to the Bounty chocolate bar in taste. But, in fact, its taste is pretty far from it. And as there are not many fans of this flavour anyway, so chances are I write this review for two or three people in the UK. Never mind.
What is symptomatic in this protein bar is its scent. Although there is milk chocolate and coconut easily detectable, they lack their intensity. It doesn’t mean it’s not pleasant; it is. But it’s rather not too inviting and exciting. A nicely soft on the outside, this protein bar is soft on the inside too. Therefore, no problem with biting into it. However, as it’s gooey by its name and it’s also gooey by its texture. So be prepared for a bit of chewing (but still significantly less than in other Pro2Go Gooey Protein Bar, Blueberry & White Choc). Also, this protein bar is sticky. And these two are the reason to have a sip while eating it.
It’s not a healthier alternative of Bounty chocolate bar.
Let’s start from the end. This bar is pretty tasty (unlike the other from this range). So I scored it for 7/10 pts, deducting 0.5 pt for being not too satisfying though. But still, it’s sweet, not oversweet. Also, there is coconut and milk choc flavours effortlessly detectable. And these flavours are good balanced. However, I’m fully aware that not everybody likes coconut or desiccated coconut, so that it may be a great protein bar for a fraction of the majority of people liking bars in general. And that’s OK for me, as I’m among them. Oh, and there is no weird or strange aroma or aftertaste here, that’s good. But still, Bounty chocolate bar stands still on the top of the coconut flavoured bars.
Do I want another Pro2Go gooey protein bar after the first one? If it was all about the taste, then I could be pretty close to say ‘one more, please’. But I don’t like struggling with my protein treats, so I say ‘thank you, that was perfectly OK for me’.
With 214 kcal per 60g bar, this snack’s macros are not too exaggerated. There is also 8.1g of fat, a reasonable 18g of carbs (of which
It’s not bad, indeed. But there’s still a room for improvement. So no title of ‘sustainable protein flapjack on the go’ for this one.
This is not a protein bar for everyone.
Pro2Go Gooey Protein Bar Coconut & Milk Choc is not for everyone. To be satisfied with it, you would have to like coconut. And gooey protein bars. And milk chocolate. And as it may seem too many requirements for some, I believe there are at least two or three people in the UK that will like it. And me, the fourth one.
Will I ever go back to this gooey protein bar? There are chances for that. However, with the thought in mind this is pretty far from being Bounty-like bar. And… that’s still OK.
