In our opinion – this has been gifted to us from the protein bar gods.
This is an absolute gem of a protein bar. The picture may not sell it well – and to you, the idea of the flavours could be an absolute no no.
As always – Grenade has a great formula going on here as described in our general Grenade Carb killa bar review – very small variants in protein and calories – means this one sits nicely again with 233 Calories and 20 grams of protein.
It’s something we must always remind ourselves when we get a great bar – is that unlike others – this is a great bar which also holds it’s own as a protein bar – not a “slightly high” protein bar that tastes great. But is doing little to help you along with your Protein intake.
What makes this flavour of carb killa bar so great
But for us lovers of dark chocolate, this just nails it. The raspberry just adds a note of sourness that has us going back for more each time.
There’s a level of crisp on the top and consistency in the bar that whilst other bars taste good and OK – you’d probably wait till tomorrow to eat the next one.
This bar however just gets it all right. The cacao nibs on the top have a great bite and what can only be described as the occasional squeak as you bite into them.
This could quite well be the best grenade bar in our opinion. As the second you’ve finished it – you could probably devour another one.
Frankly – the wrapper is pretty cool too – probably the best they’ve created.
So what don’t we like about the bar?
Frankly – we’re just nit picking here. As always with grenade – their manufacturing process lets them down. If you see our next image – you can see the majority of the cacao nibs and various toppings are central to the bar. Meaning you get a very varied experience – especially if you’re a much more delicate eater than ourselves.
Get this in your face immediately.
- A dark chocolate lovers dream
- Perfect flavour combination
- Great texture with the added cacao nibs
