Oh dear! This is a REAL chocolate protein bar. It’s delicious, highly palatable and sensational. If it only had slightly healthier ingredients…
A while ago we were reviewing tiny Proteinissimo protein bars, Chocolate Coffe Cake and Chocolate Raspberry Cream flavours. Back then I was laughing in their face they’re only 30g and it’s ridiculous. And from the perspective, I can see their overall scores of 6.3/10 pts and 6.1/10 pts was so too. But then! Another Proteinissimo bar (its name still make me laugh, you know?) comes into play, Dark Chocolate Sensation Flavour. It’s bigger, it’s tastier and it’s sensational. And that’s the fact. BOOM!
This protein bar invites us with just an OK smell. It smells pretty good, the chocolate scent is easily detectable, but it could be slightly more intense. Anyway, it’s still appetising. From the outside, this bar is pretty soft. And, what is not so obvious, it’s even more delicate on the inside. As a result of that, you may be assured it’s comfortable to eat. It’s also barely chewy and hardly sticky. And that’s good. What I also liked is it’s moistness, as it was effortless to eat it without a sip. No reason to complain here at all.
In a matter of taste… OMG! This protein bar is sensational in its taste!
This protein bar is magnificent, sensational in its taste. I have to admit it: I don’t remember such a delicious, lovely, brilliant chocolate in any chocolate bar. Not only in protein ones. Say thank you to a quality dark chocolate couverture (18%) instead of some cheap chocolate-like sh*t or chocolate flavour coatings to be found in other protein bars! Oh dear, I’m bought! All right, relax, start breathing, calm down… Going further, this protein bar is not too sweet, but it’s still HIGHLY satisfying. Do I need to say there’s no weird aroma or aftertaste? If I do, then I say: there’s none of them here.
Do I want another serving of this Proteinissimo (heh…) protein bar after the first one? Oh dear, can I have three of them, please?
A quick look at the macros of this protein bar gives us hope. Hope for a great all-rounder. For a title of the finest protein bar on the go. A 50g bar has only 169 kcal, 3.5g of fat, 15.5g of carbs (including… 14.5g of sugar) and 16g of protein. OK, it’s not too bad. However, that’s where the cold shower comes. The ingredients list. It’s simply terrible. Added sugar, invert sugar syrup and fructose syrup. Hmm… What would you add here to make it even worse? Bleh…
Can it be the finest protein bar on the go? Well, you must be silly seeing these ingredients and asking this question.
A sensational protein snack. With rubbish ingredients.
Why? Oh, why?! This Proteinissimo Dark Chocolate Sensational
Will I ever go back to this protein bar? Uhmm… It’s a tuff question. Although it has awful ingredients, this tastes is well worth to come back to. At least now and then. And I can’t believe I said that…
P.S. Did you know there’s new range of Proteinissimo protein bars available? It’s Proteinissimo Prime and you can read more about it here.

OUR RATE: VERY GOOD
This protein bar is brilliant! It’s comfortable to eat, absolutely sensational in the matter of its taste and it has not that bad macros. However, its ingredients list is terrible. And this is the only reason it tastes sooo good. And this is the only reason it scored ‘only’ 7.2/10 pts. Sorf of a paradox.
