The Simply Bar Review

22 Aug

So a few weeks back I got in contact with The Simply Bar and they were so kind and sent me a little package of samples to review! I received a small box filled with four of their top bars including: Peanut Butter Chocolate, Caramel Peanut, Cinnamon Pecan and Lemon Coconut.  As well as two small bags of their new Simply Protein Chips made from pea protein!

What’s so great about these bars is that they are all around 150-160 calories, have about 15 grams of protein per serving, under 5 grams of sugar and are fairly low in carbohydrates compared to other bars on the market.

First one I tried was Peanut Butter Chocolate and it was a hit even though it wasn’t my favorite out of the bunch.  The taste wasn’t too over powering and the consistency of the bar is just right..kind of reminded me of a crisper rice krispie treat. Probably would taste great dipped in coffee..yum!

Second was Cinnamon Pecan and this one was a favorite! Crispy, not too sweet and it definitely reminded me of a cinnamon roll… a crispy version of course.

Third one was caramel peanut which I packed as a snack while I ran some errands last week.  It was pretty hot out that day and when I got back to my car I ripped the bar open to find a somewhat mushy caramel peanut crispy treat and the taste did not let me down! But my favorite out of the bunch was the lemon coconut.  This bar has 4 grams of fiber and only 3 grams of sugar.  It was light, refreshing and reminded me of the tropics.  Lemon coconut flavor is perfect for those who aren’t too big on chocolate.

Onto the chips…

Each bag of these chips have 140 calories and 15 grams of protein! Chips with protein?! I’m a fan!  Flavors included herb and chili which are both a combination of spicy and slightly sweet.  Not to mention they have alot of crunch which is always a plus!  These chips are made with under 10 ingredients including pea protein isolate, dehydrated potato flakes, potato starch, salt, calcium carbonate, canola oil, natural cane sugar and seasoning.

I highly recommend these products to anyone looking for a bar or snack that is packed with protein, low sugar and tastes great!
