What do you get when you cross an after eight with 20grams of protein. Well – you’d probably end up with something like this.

The minds at Grenade – have created a carb killa bar that contains a 22.2 grams of protein and only 214 calories.

This bar is dark chocolate with a mint fondant topping. Biscuit base, soft nougat style centre and a minty fondant on top – which is then wrapped in dark chocolate and their staple whey crispies throughout.

certainly worth a try if you love dark chocolate and mint

Our Review

Frankly – this is not a great bar.

When you take it out the wrapper you notice how dense it is. Which when you think into it – you think. Ok they’ve embraced the after eight style and maybe just like an after eight – it will have a lovely bite to it and a minty centre.

Alas – this bar just seems downright confused.

It’s a bit like old dried up toothpaste

It is dense… very dense and very chewy.

The mint is all consuming – but we say mint in the sense that it’s like eating that old toothpaste congealed to the side of the tube opening.

Not pleasant.

The whey crispies come as some relief – but really it just adds to the noise rather than helping out the bar.

I laboured to finish this one – I was pretty excited having tried the Grenade – Dark chocolate raspberry carb killa but – there was little dark chocolate to be found here.

You end up finishing the bar feeling like you’ve just swilled some mouthwash – it was a real labour to finish it.

I can’t say this will end up in our gym bag again.

Maybe if it was discounted to say 50p – but at over £2 a bar – it’s certainly not an after eight – in fact – It’s daylight robbery.
