Barebells Protein Bar Review

Bored of the same old protein bar options? These Barebells bars are one of our most overlooked offerings, and wrongly so! With excellent macros, a great selection of flavours and packing taste and texture, these have the potential to become your new favourite.

 Macros

At 55g per bar, these are at the smaller end of average for a protein bar. Just the right size to enjoy with a coffee when you’re not quite ready for a full meal.

The bars come in at around 199 calories each, with an impressive 20g of protein. Sugar is very low, at just 1.6g per bar, and low-moderate fat with 7.7g. To put this into perspective, the macros are similar to a PhD Diet Whey or Carb Killa bar.

Taste

So far, I have only tried caramel cashew and salty peanut from this range, so cannot comment on other flavours. White chocolate and almond would be next on my list- as a rule, white choc protein bars are excellent!

Caramel & Cashew – Of the two flavours I had to sample, I was most excited for this one. Cashew nuts are my favorite and I had high expectations. Unfortunately, the cashew flavour was lost in the bar, it was more of a creamy caramel with milk chocolate coating. I’d love to have had a layer of whole cashew chunks in there!

Salty Peanut – The winner of the two. This was just like a snickers bar, but better. The chocolate coating is high quality, unlike some bars, there was lots of texture from the peanuts, and the caramel was actually salty (as a fan of sweet-salty combos, I’m usually underwhelmed by anything labelled ‘salted caramel’). I only wish it could've been larger for the same calories so it wasn't gone so quickly!

Final Thoughts

Grab a box for £23.99, or a single for just £2.50.

These are a great diet-friendly snack, and I'd highly recommend the Salty Caramel.
