Strawberry Shortcake? More like Strawberry Shortfake!


While walking through the convinience store the other day, I came across my good old Pure Protein bars. Amongst my typical favorite flavors, I spotted a new one, Strawberry Shortcake. Excitedly, I purchased Pure Protein's Strawberry Shortcake bar, anticipating a lovely, healthy dessert alternative. In the past, I've enjoyed the Chocolate Delux, Chocolate Chip Cookie, and Peanutbutter Chocolate Chip varieties of Pure Protein's bars, thus, was expecting another pleasant expirience. Before I get down to the nitty-gritty (and this bar has ALOT of nitty-gritty to it!), I must applaud Pure Protein on producing yet another nutritionally sound product. These bars contain more protein per calorie than any other one out there on the market. Also, weighing in at nearly 3 oz., this bar is a pretty hefty size, too. Pure Protein described there bar as "The luscious flavor of fresh picked strawberries in the Pure Protein Strawberry Shortcake high protein bars is so delicious... it's like heaven on earth. Each bar is loaded with 30 grams of high quality protein, packed with vitamins and minerals and has 0 grams trans fat. The Pure Protein Strawberry Shortcake bar is like a little piece of heaven... strawberry heaven." Well, after tasting this bar, I hope that I never have to visit strawberry heaven! The taste is TERRIBLE, purely chemical! Each bite tastes like a combination of aspartame and rubbing alcohol- not a pleasant combination. The only edible part of this bar would be the "real fruit" strawberry filling, which is still very strong and fake tasting. Each Pure Protein bar contains 280 calories, 6 grams of fat, 29 grams of carbohydrates, and 29 grams of protein (apparently the company thought that 29 was close enough to 30...) Even with nutritional stats this great, I doubt I'll be able to stomach another Strawberry Shortcake Pure Protein bar again. It was truly a dissapointment. Luckily, I can rely upon my standby flavors of Pure Protein bars to still get some decent calories into my system. Guess it goes to show you, stick with what you know.

Pure Protein Bars - Great for Snacking


These bars make for great snacks. They are very rich in protein, low in carbohydrates, and if you need a little something-something to get you through the afternoon, they're definitely worth it. They come in two distinct sizes, 1.76 oz (180 calories - 20 grams of protein) and 2.75 oz (310 calories - 30 grams of protein).The larger bars are by far more filling and satisfying, but the smaller bars are okay too if you need a quick bite. I've tried both Chocolate Deluxe and Chocolate Peanut Butter, and the peanut butter is easily the better of the two flavors. In comparison, the chocolate deluxe seemed a bit drier, and it didn't quite have that chocolate taste I was expecting. Both bars are very chewy and their textures are alright, but I'd recommend water or milk to go with them (although still good straight up!). Overall: Great for the protein and healthier than most snacks, but stick with the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor. Recommend.

not chalky. tastes good.


The Pure Protein chocolate deluxe protein bars taste great. They do not have a chalky taste like most of the other brands. The serving size is pretty big for the bars being only 180 calories. These protein bars are not filled with suagrs, but they still taste sweet. I use them in place of breakfast, have one along with my lunch, or just as a snack between meals. Most of the other bars I have tried were so packed of calories and sugar, that they did not feel like a healthy protein bar. In fact, I stopped eating them because they were more calories than a regular chocolate bar! With only 180 calories, you can feel good about having your protein but not like it will make you hyper, or make you feel weighted down. My wife has started eating them too, even though she is not on a high protein diet. The protein bars are available at most of the grocery stores around us, and are very reasonly priced. For the price of 2 or 3 of their competitors, I can grab a few of these.

Covers my sweet craving and helps me feel full.


The Pure Protein Protein bars by Worldwide Sports Nutrition have a good Carbohydrate to Protein ration and I really like the way the Chocolate and Peanut butter bars taste.  These bars are great for when I'm trying to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight after having a baby.  They're easy for on the go snacking, fulfill my sweet craving and help me feel full longer than if I only have fruit or a yogurt for a snack.  When I combine these with my workouts (both running, cardio and weight training)  I'm able to lose 2-3 pounds a week even while I'm still breastfeeding and consuming between 2000 and 2500 calories a day (in order to keep milk production up).   I love anything that can help me get back to an ideal weight quickly and these definitely do that.  They do not taste like a "candy bar," but they are sweet and taste good for a nutritional product.  Everytime I start a weight loss program, these are what I pick to help me on my journey.
