What's In It?

Hey all, this is Steve Sidorski and the product I am reviewing is the Chocolate Chocolate Chunk flavour of Met-Rx Protein Plus protein bar. This turned out to be a very chewy bar and the taste was out of this world!
My first impression was that this is probably better than most bars because I found it in the United States at a store in Grand Marais which was the one towards Duluth. It seems as though the Americans get better stuff than we do as well as faster. Most of my reviews involve products sold in Canadian stores but I could not find this bar anywhere in a brick and mortar store in Canada.
As for the texture of the bar it has an outside coating made of milk chocolate which turns out to be a considerable portion of the bar. Below is a fudge layer with a form to it that resembles caramel because of the way it 'stretches' in a way similar to when you are separating the caramel from the chocolate of a candy bar. Once you get past that then you are on your way to whey country with the taste of the whey itself to be quite impressive considering what it is. As confirmed by the amount of total protein which is 32g, that proves the amount of whey content to be well over one-third of the entire bar which is reasonable. I believe the bar could have included more whey without sacrificing the overall taste. I compare this fallacy to that of a Snickers or Oh Henry bar in that each of these bars also has too much candy and not enough good ingredients such as peanuts and peanut butter.
Packed with protein, these Met-Rx Protein Plus protein bars contain the exclusive Metamyosyn® protein formula and are rich in taste! Each bar contains thirty two grams of protein that is perfect for your muscle building lifestyle. The other flavours include Chocolate Fudge Deluxe, Chocolate Roasted Peanut with Caramel and Mud Pie Fusion and all are in stock if you order from the website below.
As for my personal opinion, if that matters, it gets a four out of five for nutrition and a five out of five for taste. My main concern is only with nutrition because of two reasons: one this 85g bar has 8g of saturated fats and two it has an abnormally high sugar alcohol content of 28g! However, it is a considerable source of potassium, carbohydrates, dietary fibre, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron, vitamin E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folic acid, vitamin B-12, biotin, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, zinc and copper. Based on a two-thousand calorie diet, the average daily value of these vitamins and minerals for you would be at least 25% which is considerable considering it is only one 85g protein bar.
Warning: This product contains sugar alcohols, which may cause gastrointestinal discomfort. Excessive consumption may have a laxative effect.
This supplement is manufactured in the USA for Met-Rx USA Inc., Boca Raton, FL 33487 and was copyrighted in 2007. If you have questions, you may call toll-free 1-800-55-Met-Rx. My advice is to go to http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/met/bars.html and save your hard-earned money.
