We approached this bar with slight trepidation – our review of the grenade caramel chaos bar review – was less than favourable – so going into this one. We didn’t have high expectations.

It’s one of the latest attempts at a salted caramel bar. Which when trying to create a lowish high protein calorie bar. It needs some very clever flavouring usage and texturing to create.

It’s probably why this bar is on the higher side calorie wise – but still an acceptable 226 Kcals

It’s a very clean and approachable packaging. Quite different from the older flavours. But let’s move beyond the packaging – because quite frankly – we’re not too fussed about shelf appeal. It’s the bar itself that matters.

A great looking bar

One of the saving graces that initially picked up our hope – was how it looked. There was PLENTY of choc chips surrounding this thing. So with that – we assumed there’s be a bit more texture to this caramel concoction.

A real standout sweet and salted flavour

To be honest – this bar blew us away.

It really is a great bar – you get the saltyness coming through of the salted caramel and the texture is great.

The sweetness comes through nicely too – none of it feels forced or over flavoured.

A choc chip Relief of texture

It was a particularly hot day so perhaps the choc chips didn’t have as much bite as they’d usually have – but they offered enough to add some relief to grenades often chewy texture.

As always – if you try to eat this bar quickly you’ll have a jaw exercise on your hands – but in small bites – you keep getting wave and wave of salted caramel goodness.

Honestly this is a great bar – for 20grams of protein and only 226 kcals it’s an absolute winner.

I’d definitely eat this again – even probably in an hour or so despite the obvious digestive discomfort I may get.
