SCI-MX Strawberry & Cream Protein Bar

SCI-MX Strawberry & Cream Protein Bar

This is not a Duo Bar anymore. And although it’s basically the same as it’s predecessor, it’s somehow a bit different. SCI-MX Strawberry & Cream Protein Bar is here to make some mess.

SCI-MX Nutrition makes ‘a bit’ of mess in its protein snacks portfolio. And I honestly expressed it while reviewing SCI-MX Chocolate & Hazelnut Protein Flapjack. In the meantime, I managed to grab their another newcomer, SCI-MX Strawberry & Cream Protein Bar. And something tells me I saw it already somewhere. Oh, yes, it looks alike SCI-MX Nutrition Pro2Go Strawberry & Cream Duo Bar. But are they the same? And the answer to this question is simple as always: it depends. Oh gosh…

This Strawberry protein bar smells lovely. There are strawberry and cream flavours easily noticeable. But they lack their intensity. That’s not a big problem, though, as it’s still appetising and inviting. Also, its firmness is nothing to be concerned about. Both, on the outside and on the inside, it’s pleasantly soft. Therefore, no problem with biting into it at all. When it comes to chewing, this bar is a bit chewy and it sticks to the teeth not much. And it’s also moist. As a result of that, a solid 7.5/10 pts in all those criterion (smell, outer and inner firmness, moisture). Well done, SCI-MX Nutrition.

This protein bar tastes really good, but something has changed over time.


This bar still tastes really good. Both flavours, strawberry and cream, are effortlessly detectable and intense enough. But, frankly speaking, it could be a bit deeper. There’s also a white chocolate coating, but I wasn’t able to taste it. In other words, it seems to be (nearly) tasteless. But it doesn’t make a mess here. What does, however, is a bitterish aroma in this bar. It’s not too intense, but it’s there. Therefore, I had to deduct 1 pt in this criteria. Overall, it’s pleasant, but not as much as I expected it to be based on my our recent experience.

By the way, when we were recently reviewing the Duo Bar, I fall in love with its taste. And I wasn’t the only one that liked it, as Kaz went nearly crazy about it too. However, since then we have tuned up our criterion a bit. That’s why it could get slightly fewer points in some departments. And that’s the reason why its overall score is lower than before.

What has also changed since last time is the feeling after eating this Strawberry & Cream bar. As I was able to eat another one before, now it seems like one is perfectly fine for me. And this may be caused by that slightly bitterish aroma in its taste.

From the macros point of view, these two bars are the same. A 60g snack has 224 kcal, 7.1g of fat, 24g of carbs (of which 12g of sugar) and rounded amount of 20g of protein. The ingredients list is also the same, so there is added sugar, palm fat and glucose syrup. Everything stays the same here. Everything is not the best quality here.

And again, no chance for the title of the finest protein bar on the go.

New packaging and old recipe. It’s not the recipe for success I’m afraid.


SCI-MX Strawberry & Cream Protein Bar

SCI-MX Strawberry & Cream Protein Bar is some kind of time machine. It has new packaging, but there’s the same content in it. A pretty good one when it comes to its taste or ease of eating. But at the same time, it’s equally mediocre in other aspects, like macros or ingredients. And it’s nothing to be called a progress. Or improvement.

Will I ever go back to this protein bar? I will, sometime in the future. But, in contrast, it’s not a bar I got used to.

P.S. There are two another Duo Bars from SCI-MX, Chocolate & Orange and Caramel & Vanilla. But it’s nothing you should be concerned about, honestly.

OUR RATE: GOOD

It looks like someone has just invented the time machine. This bar has new packaging, but there’s the same content in it. A pretty good one when it comes to its taste or ease of eating. But at the same time, it’s equally mediocre in other aspects, like macros or ingredients.
