You know my crazy life tends to provide me ample opportunities to love the convenience and nutrition in protein bars. Â This semester, Mondays and Wednesdays are my beasts : 4 and a half straight hours of teaching (3 hours of lecture), and Wednesdays I teach a night class to boot. Â If I’m lucky, I eat a protein bar. Â If I’m unlucky, I might not eat. Â 🙁
I recently received some samples from Ratio
The Cookie Crunch tastes like a candy bar,
almost like a cross between a Heath bar and a 3 Musketeers (but I can’t really decide which, so I crossed it out).Â Layers of fudge, caramel fluff, and crispy rice are smothered in chocolate.
The Peanut Butter Cup is like a less-sweet version of Reese’s with a layer of fudge. Â An interesting tidbit for you,Â their powdered sugar uses tapioca starch instead of cornstarch (at least in pb cup).
Cake Batter is an interesting take on the protein bar. Â Soft chewy inside surrounded by a thick outer layer of crispies and white chocolate-like candy. Â You can taste the whey protein, but it’s not a bad flavor. Â It’s obviously not candy, though it tastes like it at first. Â It sort of does taste like vanilla cake batter, though not as sweet.
Ratio Bars are gluten-free, have no GMOs, no hormones, and no soy protein.
