Recently I was kindly sent a few samples of the Aussie Bodies Protein Bars to try. I had seen a few posts on social media about them and so was looking forward to giving them a try! There are quite a few flavours to choose from but they sent me three different flavours to try; Salted Caramel, Choc Fudge and Peanut Butter Caramel. Salted Caramel is my jam so obviously had to try that one first. I have a mild allergy to peanuts so had to rope in my sister to try that one and review!
They are about half the size of your regular protein bar, and therefore come in at under 100 calories and macro wise come in at 8-9g of Protein; 10g of Carbs and 3g Fat on average across the range. They are high in fibre and low in sugar too.
There is a caramel layer on top of a nougat like centre and covered in milk chocolate. In terms of flavour you can definitely say taste the salted caramel. It is quite chewy and almost reminiscent of a quest bar in terms of texture.
Peanut Butter Caramel
My sister was unfortunately pretty brutal with this one. ‘I would have had no idea it was meant to be peanut flavour if you hadn’t have told me.’ She said the flavour was lost and it was just too chewy to enjoy. A thumbs down from her I think!
Again this one had a nougat type centre covered in milk chocolate. The initial chocolatey taste was nice but then there was a bit of a strange after taste which I couldn’t pin point and wasn’t a fan of.
Overall these bars are not the best I have ever tasted and certainly not the worst. I believe they are available from Boots at 99p, so if I was out and about and in need of a protein snack then I probably would pick the Salted Caramel one up again.
I was very grateful to receive this sample of bars from Aussie Bodies, but all views and opinions are truthfully my own.
