I’m always on the look out for foods that are easy to carry on long runs and I was fortunate enough to be given the chance to try these awesome wafer protein bars and go whey protein bars. I was sent a very generous selection of these bars with three different flavours , well actually four different flavours with the” SoGood!” whey protein bar, which is delicious and delivers 30% of your required protein intake, these bars are more specific for body building but in my opinion would be a good source of energy on a long run giving you the energy requirements when you need it most.
The protein wafer bars were also very tasty and came in three flavours namely Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla. From my experience with most whey protein powders …strawberry is never 100% “strawberry” flavour you know on the first bite that it is made from whey protein however it still doesn’t disappoint because it is covered with a light coating of chocolate on the outside and is deliciously sweet and of course I have a very sweet tooth:) .
The chocolate protein bar was really delicious and definitely ticked all of the boxes for flavour ,texture and if you didn’t know it was a protein bar you’d think it was just a normal chocolate bar that you’d buy in a shop.
The Vanilla protein bar was good but some of the Vanilla flavouring wasn’t coming through and a suggestion would bee to try a lemon based extract which would really give it a nice zing and enhance the Vanilla flavour.
Would I use these bars for my long runs? Most definitely, but my favourites would definitely be The ” SoGood!”bar because of its amazing flavour and the white chocolate covering with yummy coconut on top , my second favourite would definitely be the chocolate covered whey layered bar. Third and fourth would be the strawberry and vanilla bars.
These bars are laden with calories and protein and definitely not for anyone who only trains now and again. So if you are a weight lifter or in my case an ultra runner than these would be ideal as a snack between sessions or on a long run.
A very big thanks or go maithe agat, goes out to the people at The Health Hut I hope we can work together with other products because I am looking for a good magnesium supplement and Bccas.and always keen on trying out new products.
