USN TRUST Crunch High Protein Bar Salted Caramel Peanut Flavour

This is a protein bar for salt lovers. For those, who add three teaspoons of salt to anything. And a bit more of salt on top of that. This protein bar is oversweet oversalted.

A while ago we reviewed Oatein Oats & Protein Cookie Salted Caramel. It turned out to be ‘a bit’ oversalted, as we wrote back then. Then, the maker of this protein cookie contacted us, asking ‘what the hell? No one said so before!’ (all right, they were much more polite than that, seriously! 😉 ). However, we were nearly sure it’s not our taste buds’ fault, but this cookie is like that indeed. Aaaaand… we were right! We assumed there’s something wrong with the recipe of this cookie as it contains 1.4g of salt per 100g of product. And you know what? This USN TRUST Crunch High Protein Bar Salted Caramel Peanut Flavour bar is pretty similar to that! It contains 1.34g of salt per 100g and it’s… oversalted too! Well, it looks like someone got out of bed on the wrong side while preparing this recipe too.

I’m sorry for so long intro, but I wanted you to catch a context. Anyway, this protein bar smells lovely. All flavours – salted caramel and peanuts – are easily detectable. And they’re inviting. This protein bar is really comfortable to bite into it and chew. However, it’s somewhat chewy and a bit sticky. But still, it’s nothing that you should be concerned about, as it doesn’t affect an overall experience in this matter. And the good thing is, this protein bar is so moist you can easily eat it without a sip. At least as long as you don’t mind salty food.

So tasty. And sooo salty.


Forget about its saltiness for a moment. This USN TRUST protein bar tastes delightful. Salted caramel and peanut flavours are really good in their taste. They’re both easily detectable and flavourish. And they’re pleasantly crunchy. And everything would be OK if it wasn’t sooo salty! It’s definitely too salty. And as long as you don’t add salt to anything, including your peanut butter or salted caramel, it may be too much for you. As it was for me. Therefore, this protein bar is not too sweet. And it’s definitely not satisfying.

Do I want another serving of this USN TRUST Crunch protein bar after the first one? Not actually. OK, I may not be the greatest fan of salty food, but even I know salt is one of the main ingredients while cooking. Or baking. Or anything. (Guess who prepares chicken without salt and pepper pretty often?).

A quick look at the macros of this bar says it all. A 100g of this protein bar contains 1.34g of salt. And it looks like it’s too much. I’d say 0.9-1.0g for 100g of product is max if you don’t want to have oversalted anything. Anyway, a 60g bar has 217 kcal, 9g of fat, 16g of carbs (including only 1.9g of sugar) and 20g of protein. And 0.8g of salt. 😛 The ingredients list doesn’t contain added sugar, palm fat or syrups. Well done.

But still, considering all the above, it can’t be the finest protein bar on the go. Sorry.

A salty protein bar. That’s interesting, indeed.
