Met-Rx Big 100 Colossal Bar
100 grams never seemed like so much food before, but this bar proved me that 100g can fill you up. To put things into perspective, let's look at a typical McDonald's cheesburger. It has 300 calories, 12g of fat, 33g of carbs, and 15g of protein...the rest of the 114g that this is made up of is probably unkown, and if you want to keep eating them you'll probably want to keep it that way. Now the 100g of this bar has 360 calories, 6g of fat, 50g of carbs, and 44g of protein. Hmmm, well I am not too sure, but seems like the Colossal has alot more nutrition packed into it. But lets not compare apples to oranges here, why would you choose this bar over other protein bars in the market? Let's take a look.
It seems like every protein bar needs a way to differentiate itself from the others. Met-Rx does this is a few ways:first off it's marketing, the bar looks massive and right away you want that red brick of calories and goodness! Second, it uses some kind of METAMYOSYN protein blend. This is Met-Rx proprietary blend of protein which consists of whey protein, calcium caseinate, egg albumen and milk protein isolate, combined with maltodextrin, vitamins, minerals and added amino acids. It's also high in antioxidants, oh and did I mention it tastes pretty damn good? Picking a protein bar ain't easy, especially when you have so many to flavours to choose from. This becomes increasingly hard when the flavours are: Colossal Super Cookie Crunch, Crispy Apple Pie, Colossal Peanut Butter Pretzel, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chip Graham Cracker, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, Colossal Peanut Butter Caramel Crunch. If you can't find a flavor you like in there, you must be a very picky person. It seems like Met-Rx really tried hard to make a diverse number of selections for people who have different tastes, even going with a sweet and salty variation such as the peanut butter pretzel flavour. Now of course, that makes your job harder in picking which flavour you want...or maybe it's a way for them to make you try all of them. What I like about these bars is that they really have that satisfying aspect to them, they make you feel full, they taste like you've had a really rich dessert, and they have a ton of protein in them too so you know you're covered.
No complaints can be made about the taste and that's for sure. I mean to be a really competitive protein bar today I think the taste has to meet the expectation that it is nearly indistinguishable from a candy bar. Most of these bar have the crumbly cookie texture, like a crumbled up orea glued together (minus whatever glue tastes like) and then smothered in a frosting type topping. They taste great and go down good with a glass of milk. Although I haven't tried all of them, from the falvours I did try give me a very optimistic outlook that all of them taste pretty damn good.
I could see someone getting some decent gains if they use these bars to supplement their dietary protein needs. I have never consistently taken protein bars to really understand or see how gains are made on them, but I assume they work the same way having a protein shake would. If you're a hard gainer, and need to take a meal supplement like a weight gainer, I can see how protein bars would really help accelerate muscle gains. These MET-Rx bars are packed with calories and that special METAMYOSYN blend which they engineered to help ill patients from losing muscle mass. For that reason, I trust MET-Rx in providing good nutrition in their products and it seems like they have a good udnerstanding of peoples needs for building muscle mass. Now MET-Rx is a full blown supplement company with a wide array of products, and their bars match up with the competition quite well!
If calories really aren't any concern and you want a full bar made with natural flavours, sugar, and protein then the Big 100 Colossal bar by Met-Rx is a great choice. The taste is on par with many of the bars out in the market and it offers great nutritional value that leaves you satisfied and full. I dare you to try all the flavours, the selection beats many of those out there in terms of variety. MET-Rx award winning METAMYOSYN formula has done wonders for it's MRP's and proteins, and now that same formula is being used in it's Big 100 Colossal bars which has been a finalist for the CSP retailers Best New Product Award Finalist. Try one soon!
