Artificial Sweetner Free Protein Bar Review #1

So how's it goin?
So randomly I got an idea to do a little review/ testing of my own. I was at the grocery store yesterday with my mom and really wanted some protein bars and so then this happened :)

I really enjoy eating protein bars. I really do.
I know some people think that you shouldn't eat them for meals and eating real food is better. I can totally agree with this but it still doesn't change the fact that some protein bars are just plain yummy :) ( i might be weird, but I really do like some of them) 
Sometimes I really just want a good protein bar for lunch or a snack. 

The only problem is that so many of them are completely filled with tons or artificial sweeteners and I am actually slightly allergic/ intolerant of sweeteners such as sucralose, aspartame, etc. 
My stomach bloats and I just feel horrible. 

So I am on a quest to find some awesome protein bars that are all natural (kind of), healthy and most importantly delicious :) 

I hope you enjoy!
 Day 1 - Power Crunch Protein Energy Bar - Cookies & Cream 

Nutrition Facts -
  • 205 calories 
  • 14 g of protein 
  • 5 g of sugar 

Scoring :) on a scale from 1 to 10 
Taste - 6/10

  • The taste was pretty good. It tasted like a white chocolate wafer basically. The only reason why the score wasn't higher was because the filling sometimes tasted kind of chalky. I really did enjoy it but at times it just tasted dry. 
Fullness after eating - 4/10

  • This bar really did not hold me at all. I was not really that satisfied after eating it. Like I needed a snack an hour to two hours after eating it. :/

Overall 6/10

  • The bar itself was pretty good and it tasted like a cookie really, but I just feel like a protein bar should feel me up more. That was the most disappointing thing about this bar. 
So I might eat this bar again, especially if I am in the mood for something light and tasty but for right now it is not going to be my go to bar to fill me up.
