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
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.
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.
- Standard high protein carb killa nutrition
- Tastes synthetic
- Very poor bar
