I admit it… while I hate eating anything that isn’t AMAZING. Sometimes I don’t have time to cook, prepare or eat at a nice place. So I grab fast food (don’t judge) or prepackaged things like Lunchables (WHAT???? I typed no judging). Therefore, today when I was running late to work, I grabbed a bar to tide me over till lunch.
The problem is I didn’t grab my normal Special K bars or Fiber1 bars. Things that taste ok even good depending on the flavor. But at least the bars I have had are just not as good as a nice hot home cooked breakfast. Today, I grabbed one of my husband’s(Still weird) bars, a Pure Protein bar.
Well, my husband is on a workout kick. He is all into building muscle and strength which he tells me means increasing his protein intake a TON. I don’t mind this because protein is not too hard to increase for dinners or meals I cook. Though for his day to day lunches and snacks, I got protein bars and protein powder. I just got the bars that were on sale that had the most protein. My husband unlike me will eat ANYTHING regardless of taste or really anything. Think like Mikey! So I grab a pure protein strawberry shortcake bar. It has 19 grams of protein and less then 200 calories. So in theory the perfect breakfast/mid-morning snack.
These taste like cough syrup mixed with card board which is SIGNIFICANTLY worse than most bars that are so bland and flavorless. Here is a picture so you may avoid this FLAVOR at ALL cost!
Sorry, husband you are stuck eating ALL of the Strawberry Short Cake Flavor by yourself. And I am going back to my less protein filled bars.
If you have any high protein good tasting bar or snack options, please comment…..
PS-Yes, the Taylor Swift Song is totally stuck in my head hence the blog name!
