1. Smart living nutrition

Packaging is not bad, the first one that got my eyes because its package, cute colours!!

IMG_1284the best one! how can it be bad if it’s Chocolate caramel! It’s not too sweet, though

IMG_1283The worst one, taste weird, like eating shampoo

IMG_1281It does not taste like cookie and cream

Protein 8.3~10.1g each, Carbs 1.0~3.6g each. Compare to sneakers mini, (because it’s similar size) it’s not bad but not tasty either.

  • Would I buy those again? : Probably not.
  • Recommend to : When you need to buy some cute bday present to your friend who has serious Hypochondria. It’s pretty cute.

2. The bar counter

Nothing really impressed me. Packaging ok, taste not bad… reasonable price $1.95 each. I found some groupon deal, you could buy there cheaper price.

Carbs 19.2~2.5g, Protein 11.5g~3.2g

Salted caramel banana flavour was the best, of course the most sugar was in there, Dark chocolate almonds was… like play dough flavour… and texture, I realised much protein = play dough texture

Again, Sneakers mini includes 4.5g of Carbs and 0.75g of protein. well.. bar of Salted caramel Banana contains 14.1 Carbs LOL WHAT THE HECK I JUST HAD? yeah I thought somehow it’s bearably delicious! Duck@!

DO NOT BUY cashew coconut because it tastes nothing like cashew coconut, it’s like… you soaked toilet paper into water, and dry it 50% only and put some coconut oil so make it bar-shape.- like taste. Surprisingly, it contains 19.2g of Carbohydrate. weird…

  • Would I buy it again : NO
  • Recommend to : You want to be look like you are on diet, so can’t have sneakers but energy bar. You are craving sugar as well, go get salted caramel banana flavour.

3. Bounce

  • Peanut : 18 carbs, 14 protein
  • Coconut macadamia : 11 carbs, 9 protein
  • Maple pecan : 16.2 carbs, 8 protein

How come all taste same? I didn’t even take pictures of yellow one, it’s peanut flavour. As I mentioned above I tried few flavours already last year @city2surf. (Freebies) and I wanted to try different flavour so I got “maple pecan” which is one of my favourite flavour all the time. I opened it, I almost came because the smell!!! was so strong, it was like exactly pecan and maple smell!! Duck! I expected so much unconsciously, again. so failed hard. Taste nothing like maple-pecan. All Bounce series taste same-same, but different aromas. how?!

If I have to describe its taste…. it’s like… play dough taste.. and texture..

a bit old play dough…

that means.. much protein,. much much protein.. However, it only contains little amount of protein and much sugar compare to its taste and compare to other products. Weird…

  • Would I purchase again? : NOOOOOO
  • Recommend to : I don’t know… someone who likes play dough flavour?

4. CLIF bar (bar CLIF)

IMG_1315The most delicious one amongst everything I bought that night. I don’t even have picture of it because it’s too yum so I forgot to take it, but package is left.IMG_1305This one was not bad either, However coconut chocolate chip was too good, this one relatively ok, ok… I like peanut butter anyway

Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! It almost taste like

this, which I already love it. and If you only know subway‘s white choc + raspberry cookie…mmm… yum…  it’s just too delicious so I couldn’t feel that I’m having energy bar, it tastes like treat, or dessert..

$2.95 each, so it’s slightly more expensive than other energy bars but still ok because it’s also bigger than other energy bars. Almost same size as my palm size.

Coconut white chocolate chip contains 10g of protein, 43g of carbs. Damn!@ I knew it! I expected that it contains A LOTS OF SUGAR since It’s too tasty! and it’s also big as I said! and also it contains vitamin!@!! A,B1,B2,B3,B6,B12, vitamin C,D,E, Calcium, Mag, Iron and Phosphorus. (what is this though) Peanut butter same shit, contains 41g of carbs.

  • Would I buy it again? : Definitely, especially coconut white chocolate chip one!
  • Who I recommend to? : Someone who doesn’t much care about carbs(sugar) intake.

5. Shelbys

IMG_1299Maybe because of matcha, It smells like cat-pee. I don’t know… I love matcha.. but It smells bad when you open it. so does taste.. It’s sweet enough but some weird taste at the end.. I guess it’s from matcha they use, because Almond taste nothing like this, cranberry and dark chocolate also I know those taste. it’s definitely something wrong.IMG_1301The nuttiest one amongst what I got this night. very nutty. I love pistachio! much enjoyed this. I don’t know what’s different between himalayan salt and Korean salt but it gives you a little saltiness which is great! so much flavour in one nutty bar., yummmmIMG_1303

The fruitiest one amongst what I got this night. very fruity! refreshing, little bit of sourness, sweet, aromatic.. was tasty so I shoved up at once.

Lucky matcha one has the least protein, 4.9g. Pistachio one 6.5g. Of course, much carbs are contained since it’s DE-LI-CIOU-S. 14.8g/12.8g/11.8g each. But it’s still way better than Clif bar, bouncer and sneakers.

  • Would I buy it again? : yahhh I loved it. $3 happiness
  • Who I recommend to : I wouldn’t recommend to anyone because I’m gonna have it all, but you can buy matcha one because I don’t want that.

Oh, my, days, It’s super long!!@ and last one finally!

6. Slim secrets

IMG_1293It’s delicious. can’t be bothered to describe more because it’s cookies and cream. alright? Oh,. but smart living nutrition’s cookies and cream flavour was sucks. But this one seems alright. The white colour coat—– (chocolate look alike) is vanilla I guess.. it’s yum trust me it tastes like

this. it’s sweet enough, I finished at once. (Many others I couldn’t) 12g protein, 8.7g carbs. Very nice with this sweetness. There must be something…*suspicious face*

IMG_1295

The problem was this, I love mint-choc flavour. Ice cream, cookies, anything with mint.. I love it!@@!@! so I AGAIN expected a lot. I opened it, it smelled so minty, once I bite it oh well, it was good start, strong mint flavour,…. then a sec.. 2 sec .. 3 sec later It’s…….

First not sweet enough, Second too strong mint, (or different artificial mint? or whatever) they use, so It tasted like

but the heck it includes 9.4g of carbs. It’s more than cookies and cream flavour!! how can it be happen? the more delicious the more carbs.. was common sense … wasn’t it?

  • Would I buy it again? : cookies and cream, yes! but package isn’t so cute, I’m still considering.
  • Who I recommend to : the one who likes smell of closet.

    Maybe you and Vitamin C should of sampled these before the AR and it would of given him more energy and potentially a higher score.

    After reading this report all i wanna eat is a Snickers Bar (or as you would say Sneakers haha).

    You need to also look at more than the carb count for some of these items.
    Sorbitol and Glycerol are sugar alcohols, some people have blood sugar responses to these. Sorbitol also has a strong laxitive effect lol

    IMO, you’re better off with artificial sweeteners over sugar alcohol, Aspartame, Stevia, Sucralose etc

    Chelsea thank you for your helpful review. i like to have things like that, nut bars etc with coffee. Given how little money you have it was a lot to spend on all those bars, $41, thanks again. I guess you will be nibbling on them for a week.
