Undoubtfully, this is the best protein bar we reviewed so far. It’s easy to eat, it’s tasty and it has impressive ingredients. In other words, No B.S. Oh, and it’s chewy and sticky AF, too.
Many great protein bars scored an excellent 7.5/10 pts in our reviews. It’s enough to say there are PhD Diet Whey Salted Caramel, Grenade Carb Killa Dark Choc Raspberry or PhD SmartJack Apple Crumble bars among them. But we have never thought that the bar that contains only five ingredients(!) will be better than that. And yet, here it is. RXBAR Peanut Butter protein bar. It’s not perfect (none of them is), but it’s decently good. And although it’s chewy and sticky AF, it doesn’t mean much here. What a paradox.
It’s not too easy to unwrap this little boy, as it sticks to its packaging. It’s a bit distressing, but it doesn’t matter, as this bar welcomes us with a pleasant fragrance. It smells like real peanut butter with a sweet addition of dates. And surely, it’s undoubtedly inviting. A really soft on the outside, this bar is alike on the inside. This is caused by dates used to bind all of the stuff together. It’s basically an advantage, as they’re sweet. And a disadvantage at the same time, as although it makes the texture really sweet, it also makes it chewy and sticky. AF. Therefore, this Peanut Butter RXBAR is easy to bite into, but not too comfortable to eat. That’s the price for natural ingredients in it (more on that a bit later). Anyway, the texture of this bar is something that makes me a bit confused.
This RXBAR tastes great.
The taste of this RXBAR Peanut Butter is like having roughly two servings of sweetish peanut butter in your pocket. It tastes exactly like that. It’s a tasty and sweetish combination of lightly salted peanut butter (30% of peanuts) and dates. The latter ones give it a pleasant sweetish kick. It’s highly palatable. And as there’s No B.S. when it comes to the ingredients list, there’s no weird aroma or aftertaste you can easily find in other protein bars. And last, but not least – this protein bar is not extremely sweet, it’s rather a blend of saltiness and sweetness. But it’s really satisfying in its way.
Do I want another serving of this RXBAR Peanut Butter after the first one? I think it’s enough to say that when I ate the testing sample of this bar and while writing this review, I ate another one. And I think I could eat one more easily…
All right. It was so sweet so far. And then we look at the back of the packaging of this RXBAR to find out some information about macros. And here they are. A 52g bar has a pretty nice 198 kcal, 7g of fat, 19g of carbs (including 15g of naturally occurring sugar, from dates) and a pretty low 12g of protein. Could be a bit better. However, the ingredients list looks incredible, as there are only 5(!) ingredients. And here they are – dates, peanuts (30%), dried egg whites, natural flavours, sea salt. That’s it. WOW!
Can it be the finest protein bar on the go then? Well, it looks like it doesn’t meet these criteria. BUT! The only reason for that is its texture and macros. It could be just a bit better. Therefore, it can’t get that title, unfortunately!
This is a fantastic bar. Well worth to stock it.
Well, I guess there’s not much more to say about this RXBAR Peanut Butter Protein Bar. It’s lovely and delicious, it has extraordinary ingredients and good enough macros. And overall, it’s a great protein bar. If only it was easier to eat…
Will I ever go back to this RXBAR Peanut Butter protein bar? Undoubtfully, I will. Since now on, it’s my go-to peanut butter flavoured protein
P.S. How about getting so raw with an addition of berries?
