SCI-MX Nutrition Pro2Go Chocolate & Orange Protein Duo Bar

A protein Duo Bar with triple layers (of disappointments). It’s not that bad bar, but SCI-MX Nutrition could make it much better. If they only wanted to do that.

SCI-MX Nutrition is far from being a reliable protein treats maker. It has a wide range of products in its portfolio. They include totally rubbish ones, like Double Choc Chip Protein Cookie. And amazing ones, like Chocolate & Hazelnut Protein Cookie. And many, many average ones. And this Chocolate & Orange Duo Bar will join latter ones.

It’s really hard to find anything good in the matter of smell of this SCI-MX Duo Bar. There’s a whiff of chocolate in it, but the orange smell is nowhere to be found here. A chocolate coating smells slightly sweetish. And according to my nose it may be some kind of dark chocolate. But I’m not sure about it. As a result of that, this bar is not too inviting. Also, it’s firmness could be better, as this bar is somewhat toughish, both on the outside and inside. It makes this bar not too comfortable to bite into it. On a par with chewing it, as it’s decently chewy and sticky. Therefore, it may be a bit struggling for some. So you’d better have a sip or two while eating it.

I want to say something, anything good about the taste of it, but…


There’s a chocolate flavour in this bar pretty easily detectable. There’s also a bit of orange (peel, 0.5%). But these two flavours could be balanced slightly better. Going further, this Duo Bar is a Triple Bar in fact, as there’s a detectable bitterness in its flavour too. Besides that, this bar is sweet and it may be a proper sweet treat for some. But I’m 100% sure it won’t be satisfying one. Therefore, -0.5 pt in this department.

Do I want another Duo Bar of this taste after the first one? Nope. It was not too bad, it was somewhat OK, but there is a couple of much better choices on the market, like Fulfil Chocolate Orange flavour protein bar.

When it comes to macros, there’s nothing to talk about too much. A 60g bar has 221 kcal, 7g of fat, 22.1g of carbs (of which 10.9g of sugar) and 20g of protein. In a word: OK. The ingredients list, however, is definitely NOT OK. There are added sugar, palm fat, glucose syrup and glucose-fructose syrup.

The question regarding considering it the finest protein bar on the go is only a rhetoric question.

The bitterish truth about this bar: it’s a triple protein bar indeed.


SCI-MX Nutrition Pro2Go Chocolate & Orange Protein Duo Bar

SCI-MX Nutrition Pro2Go Chocolate & Orange Duo Bar is a triple bar in fact. There are chocolate and orange flavours. And a bitterish aftertaste too. And even if I wanted to tell anything positive about this bar, then it would be pretty difficult to do that. All of that because there’s nothing positive in it. And a lot of negatives, like the ingredients list. And let’s finish this review at this point.

Will I ever go back to this protein bar? Even if it’s the last bar on the shelf, then I won’t. Instead of that, I’d choose a banana and a pot of yoghurt.

P.S. There’s another (former) Duo Bar from this range, Strawberry & Cream flavour. And it’s much, much better than this one.
