If you are a lover of fudge. You should keep a box of these protein bars. Fudgy and decadent, this bar was surprisingly appealing without feeling too fat or overly indulgent. Unlike some protein bars, there was no heavy aftertaste of protein powder – which is no small feat for a protein bar. We rated these bars with a 4/5 for the taste just because the chocolate flavor was delicious but did not have as much depth as one would expect for the rich and tough texture.

Traditional protein bar, this is not the Case. That's not a bad thing! Imagine if a cereal bar and a protein bar had given off a delicious protein bar baby – you see an Oatmega protein bar. Oatmega is proud of its whey protein derived from grass fed cows in New Zealand, and you can taste the reason for it. The protein taste is weak, and when hit, it's not overwhelmed with chemical notes, like many classic protein powders. While we would like to give it five stars, the muesli-like texture is a bit grainy and neither the coconut nor the chocolate flavors stand out as you would expect. Oatmega balances this with her partnership with No Kid Hungry in working against child starvation.

In one word, oppressive , These protein bites are not necessarily bad, but they are certainly not certifiable. Their texture is an unforgettable blend of dryness and crumbs and the promise of Snickerdoodle flavor is missed. It's not all bad! Their taste is not strong, but also no aftertaste of protein powder. But if you're looking for a protein-rich snack, do not eat with just nine grams of protein per serving.
Clif Builder's Protein
Protein: 20 g
Sugar: 22 g
Peanut butter Enthusiasts, we've found the protein bar for you. This delicious protein snack swings on the threshold of the chocolate bar with its hearty peanut butter center coated with a creamy coating that is neither too thin nor too thick. The taste was excellent and left no artificial aftertaste or over-processed protein bite. We recommend keeping this bar if you need a serious refueling, because with 270 calories this is not intended for occasional snoopers. It also varies a lot in sugar with 22 grams, which is by far the highest among us. Apart from that, if taste and hold are your top priorities, Clif Builder's protein is not to be found.
The Complete Cookie
Can a biscuit be a good alternative to Represent protein bars? The answer is yes! If you expect a traditional cookie, let us stop there. These are not your mother's chocolate biscuits – but they are a close relative. They have a surprisingly pleasant bite and a pleasant texture with the Snickerdoodle cookie reminiscent of a cozy fall feel. The biscuit is rounded off with a warm cinnamon sugar, which gives the biscuits a "home-made" nod. The taste is good, if weak – that is why we have awarded the Complete Cookie with four stars for the taste. Do not expect that this protein cookie will fill you up with just eight grams of protein – but you can count on curbing your hunger in one go!
Protein: 21 g
Sugar: 1 g
The moment you unpacking a quest bar, you'll instantly encounter an unnatural smell that comes only as a precursor to what's happening. After the bite, the bar does not fancy its chalky texture and a chemical taste of protein powder. While most protein bars try to keep sugar levels low, the quest bar with a very artificially sweetened taste is unpleasant. Other flavors may taste more authentic, but the Cookie & Cream variety leaves nothing to be desired. We recommend to skip this bar altogether.
Munk Pack Protein Cookie
Taste: 3.5 / 5
Sugar: 16g  This is a cookie , If Munk Pack wants to tell us it's a protein cookie, that's okay, but we're here to tell you it's a cookie. Soft baked and filled with chocolate chips and chopped peanuts, we were shocked at how well this protein snack resembled a typical biscuit. But despite the homemade texture, it was not just a home run. The protein powder notes are pronounced and although it is full of delicious additions, it still lacks the flavor. It's also a heavy 360 calorie snack, but with 18 grams of protein – it can be a great option for a quick get-together if you do not have time to sit down to a meal.
All in all, the Clif Protein Builder's bar exceeded our expectations by far and hit all the right notes. The Pure Protein bar came second. What's your favorite protein bar? Do you agree with our taste test? Tone off in the comments below!
