A solid piece of protein bakeing from grenade. Birthday cake can sometimes taste a bit sickly.

For most this one however seems to be an instant hit.

For us – once you’ve finished the bar – the sickly taste kind of sneaks up on you. It mirrors the feeling you’d get if you actually ate a whole birthday cake.

So in that aspect – they got it spot on!

The Stats

As always – we start off with the stats. It always feels repetitive when you’ve reviewed various flavours from the same brand – as they all work around the same nutritionals but vary with the odd topping.

  • Protein – 20 grams per bar
  • Calories – 218 Kcals per bar
  • Sugar – 1.7 grams
  • Carbohydrates – 18 grams
  • Fat – 9.5 grams

All to be expected – if this is your first introduction to grenade carb killa bars – then please do check out our overarching review of the bar on our grenade carb killa review

All good numbers you’d expect with further detail on all nutritional info and ingreadients below.

So how is the bar? Let us expand below

Death By Bland Sprinkles

Firstly – one annoyance is just the amount of sprinkles that don’t seem to be stuck to the bar.

Sprinkle, sprinkles everywhere!

If you’re chomping away whilst driving back from the gym – expect a lot of sprinkles in your crotch.

As a whole the sprinkle really don’t add a lot – they’re obviously necessary to create the birthday cake visual.

But really – they just offer this flat crunch to the bar and certainly could do with some work.

Texture

This is a great bar to chew on. The texture really is great – with the vanilla and white chocolate taste, sometimes you think you’re eating a milky bar with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

This really is a well textured bar.

Verdict

As a whole – this is a good bar. You get the trusted 20 grams of protein from all Carb Killa’s and a great texture.

The sprinkles let it down as does the overall finishing flavour.

I’d probably pick this up if on offer and probably once every 3 months.

For me it’s not a daily snack or a weekly. In fact – as it’s name suggest. I’d enjoy it once a year.
