Possible Chocolate Bar Substitute No.1 – Pure Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar Review

As I talked about in my previous post, my plan is to ‘beat’ the WW ‘sugar tax’ by finding alternatives to the apparently unhealthy chocolate bars that I used to enjoy on a regular basis.  I’m fast realising that this is a good idea and maybe chocolate bars aren’t the answer as you burn them off quickly and want more.  The first alternative I’ve tried is reviewed here:

Pure Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar
Bought from:  Holland & Barrett
Cost:  £1.99 (Bought as part of a ‘buy one get one half price’ deal)
WW Smartpoints:  5

Looks:  Pretty standard chocolate bar, when cut open:  doesn’t look much like the image on the packet, a bit darker brown and jelly like
Smells:  Disappointed – smells very synthetic and sickly, not like chocolate/peanut butter
Taste:  Doesn’t taste like peanut butter, very synthetic sickly flavour – If I hadn’t already added it to my points for the day I wouldn’t have eaten the second half!  Weird after taste
Texture:  Super chewy, greasy texture, got stuck in my teeth

Conclusion:  May be OK for those who want to build muscle but definitely not a tasty treat.  I’m very disappointed as this was quite low in points and the picture looked delicious!
Rating:  * (Out of 5 and this is me being generous!)
