Consumer Review
High Protein – Lactose Free – Tasty – A Little Skeptical Of (Some) Ingredients – Carry A Toothbrush
This review is for: Muscle Milk Light Bar (Chocolate Peanut Caramel):

I tried the Muscle Milk drinks. They are high protein and filling and I like that I can find them in Lactose Free varieties – chocolate and vanilla. So I thought I’d give the protein bars a go for a change from all that fluid intake(and output). I went with the Muscle Milk Light Chocolate Peanut Caramel. The bars were also zero lactose which is a plus in my case(I have a really really bad relationship with dairy products).

Nutrition info wise – they appealed to me as well. High protein 15 grms;low sugar 9 gr(compared to other protein bars), 170 calories – which are filling and satisfying ,0 cholesterol,6 gr fat(4 saturated, 0 trans)sodium – 105mg,100mg potassium and 4 gm of dietary fiber – not too bad – remember these are the “light” bars. If you are looking for a good source of vitamins and minerals, you won’t find that here, so I don’t think I would use them as a meal replacement.Also – there…

Whether you’re looking for quick protein and carbs post-workout, a carry-along portion-controlled mini-meal, or just a healthier substitution for your afternoon vending machine visit, Steel Bars fit the bill. With 20 grams of protein and 35g of carbs for glycogen replenishment, Steel Bars contain the nutrients your body needs to keep you goin’ strong. And, with candy bar-like taste and texture to match, they’re so delicious you’ll feel like you’re cheating every time that you eat one.


Consumer Review
Great taste and easy to consume, to bad it has too much sugar to be healthy for you
Unlike other protein bars, this bar actually tastes pretty good and doesn’t feel like you are biting into clay. I actually wasn’t even expecting the bar to taste as good as it did. The problem that I have with this bar is that the goodness all comes from the 23 grams of sugar. Like most people, you are probably using this bar to supplement a specific work-out routine or diet. In this situation, I don’t see how 23 grams of sugar will help you reach any of your nutritional goals as this amount of sugar is only going to make you fat–especially when you are probably going to be consuming several of these a week.

I haven’t found a protein bar that I really like so I am just sticking to my tub of Optimum Whey for my protein needs.

Protein and sugar are not the ideal combination.
