Pro2Go Raw Protein Bar Cranberry & Date

I can understand that raw protein bars are not too flavourish. But I can’t understand tasteless or dull ones. And this is what we’ve got here from Pro2Go range.

The problem with raw protein anything is they’re not too tasty. Yes, they pretty often have brilliant ingredients, like Aduna Cacao Energy Bar. But at the same time, they’re pretty far from being delicious and satisfying. Therefore, as long as you’re not crazy about raw anything, then you may consider regular treats. And this Pro2Go Raw Protein Bar Cranberry & Date most likely won’t change this.

Anyway, you won’t find it out straight away. All of that because this bar smells lovely. There are chocolate, dates and berries flavours easily detectable. And that compositing makes it inviting and tempting. A pretty softish on the outside, this bar is soft inside. Add to that it’s just slightly chewy and just a bit sticks to the teeth and you get a bar that is pretty comfortable to eat. Oh, and it’s not dryish, so many may be able to eat it without any sip. Not bad. What is bad, however, is the taste of this bar.

This raw protein bar tastes like a combination of pea protein, sunflower oil and a bit of chocolate and berries.


Did I miss something? I don’t think so. So here it is, the taste of this Pro2Go bar. And I guess I don’t have to say it’s pretty far from being the promise from the packaging of it (Cranberry & Date) in taste? Of course, it’s not sweet at all. Therefore, it’s not satisfying. And not too pleasant too. So that means -0.5 pt in this criterion. Anyway, if I had to sum it up in short, it would be something like: it tastes like an average raw bar, i.e. it’s tasteless in general.

There’s a suggestion of using this bar on its packaging. They say ‘one piece for now, one piece for later’. Can I have only one piece instead? All right, it wasn’t that bad. But if it had to be my only sweet protein treat on a given day, then I would say ‘thank you, I’m OK’.

When it comes to macros, it’s pretty lean. A 50g bar has only 191 kcal, 7.4g of fat, 14g of carbs (of which 6.8g of sugar) and a modest amount of 14g of protein. Not too bad. The ingredients list contains added sugar so that it could be a bit better here.

Anyway, considering above there’s no chance for a title of the finest protein bar on the go for this Pro2Go raw protein bar.

It’s a real raw bar. And it’s not a compliment here.

Pro2Go Raw Protein Bar Cranberry & Date could be a great bar. It smells delicious, it’s comfortable to eat and it has pretty OK macros. So what went wrong here? As always, the taste. This protein bar is not tasty. And it’s definitely not sweet either satisfying. And if I had a choice, I’d choose another bar, not especially a raw one.

Will I ever go back to this protein bar? Hopefully, there will be no need of that. And sadly that too.
