A Krave Protein Bar Review!
The all new, up-and-coming brand, Pure Fitness Nutrition, was so kind
to send me some samples of their Krave protein bar and allow me
to share a product review with you guys.
Let's dig in, shall we?
I was sent two flavors- Baked Apple Pie and Raw Cookie Dough.
Can you guess which one I opened first?
Raw Cookie Dough, no doubt.
The nutritional stats were right up my usual snack time alley.
Although I prefer snacks that do not contain sulacrose as a sweetener
(I'm more of a natural sweetener kind of gal), I was willing to
forgo my preference for the time being.
The Raw Cookie Dough Bar was very soft to the touch. It was much less dense
than I expected, but it certainly had a great airy-ness to it.
The actual taste of the bar itself was exactly what I anticipated it to be.
It has lots of chocolate chips, as opposed to chocolate chunks, and certainly
had the sweetness that any cookie dough bar should.
Overall, I would give this bar 4.1 out of 5 stars.
And of course, when I finished the Raw Cookie Dough bar,
I snapped out of my Krave daze and realized that I still had the Baked
Apple Pie bar to review. That, however, was saved for the following day.
A girl can only handle so much fiber and protein in one sitting!
Anyway, the following day I sat down and sampled the Baked Apple
Again, the nutritional stats were right up my usual snack time alley.
My only concern was the lack of natural sweetener. I was able
to forgo my preference again for this one also. I'm sorry, tummy!
My first bite of the Baked Apple Pie bar was fantastic.
This bar too had an unexpected fluffiness to it and was much less dense.
Although I typically prefer heavier snack bars, the Krave bar
still satisfied my hunger because of the immense amount
of protein and fiber.
As you can see, this bar had a sufficient amount of dried apple
pieces. It also had a subtle pecan and cinnamon flavor to it,
which is a total plus in my book. I'm a huge fan of nuts and spices!
Overall, I would give this bar a 3.9 out of 5 stars.
And of course, before I conclude this review, I must mention how this bar
compares to the good ol' QuestBar. I'm sure many of you are as
curious as I initially was: Krave and Quest have two very distinct tastes
and textures. But that's all that I am going to say!
I don't want to be the judge for anyone, so I highly encourage
you all to go out and taste a Krave bar for yourself!
Thank you again for the wonderful opportunity, Pure Fitness Nutrition!
