REVIEW OF OPTIMUM PROTEIN DIET BARS
Back To Top

Introduction:

Optimum Protein Diet Bars

The Claim:

Fuel your workouts to new levels and bring your body to it's best shape! Now you can enjoy the low-carbohydrate goodness you've come to expect from Complete Protein Diet shakes, in a convenient bar.

Like most protein bars on the market today, Optimum Protein Diet Bars contains a large amount of sugar alcohols as opposed to refined sugar. However, in most cases, the sugar alcohol used is one with a high ranking on the glycemic index. However, it's nonetheless a lower glycemic index sugar than refined sugar itself. In other words, this is a low carbohydrate protein bar and it isn't.

The Complete Protein Diet Bar travels easily in a purse or gym bag and is great for low-carbohydrate dieting and in-between meal snacking.

This bar is definitely convenient. During the summer, I work as a Forest Fire Ranger. When we are sent into the bush (sometimes for weeks at a time), it's difficult to get the protein you need much less take in enough meals. Most North Americans are used to eating 3-4 meals a day or in extreme cases, even less. Being an avid bodybuilder and fitness model enthusiast, I will eat 6-9 meals per day. Protein and meal replacement bars such as Optimum Protein Diet Bars help make up that deficit when I'm in the bush. Also, for the person that is just in a hurry at home, this is a convenient option.

Each delicious bar supplies an abundance of quality nutrients and can be used with a number of different low-carbohydrate diet program or in place of Complete Protein Diet shakes.

I wouldn't say Optimum Protein Diet Bars supply an abundance of quality nutrients. Optimum Protein Diet Bars can only be considered a protein bar in my books because they lack a vitamin and mineral complex, which meal replacement bars provide. If the sugar alcohols don't bother you, then this can indeed be used with a number of different low-carbohydrate diet programs or in place of complete protein diet shakes.

All the low-carbohydrate goodness of our Complete Protein Diet meal replacement powder, in a convenient and delicious bar. With as little as 1.5 g of carbohydrates and as much as 22 g of protein per serving, The Complete Protein Diet Bar has the best protein to carb ratio of any bar on the market.

Again, I must disagree. Each bar contains a whopping 17 grams of sugar alcohol. Due to Optimum Protein Diet Bars lack of vitamins and minerals, I can't call it a meal-replacement bar. Therefore, this claim is somewhat misleading.

New! Optimum does not make a variety pack of these bars but that didn't stop us from offering one! We created a variety pack with a few of each of the four flavors in each box! Order a Bodybuilding.com Variety Pack today for only $1.00 more than our normal super low price.

I chose the variety pack!

In regards to the claim, I award Optimum Protein Diet Bars a 6/10.

Taste:

I sampled the Optimum Protein Diet Bar Peanut Butter, Fudge Truffle and Chocolate Mint flavours.

Peanut Butter flavour:

I found that the Optimum Protein Diet Bar Peanut Butter flavour had a noticeable chocolate coating with a tasty peanut butter flavour. Therefore, in regards to taste, I award Optimum Protein Diet Bar Peanut Butter flavour a 7.5/10.

Fudge Truffle flavour:

I found that the Optimum Protein Diet Bar Fudge Truffle flavour had a noticeable chocolate coating with a dominant fudge taste. However, it wasn't the best fudge taste I could hope for. Therefore, in regards to taste, I award Optimum Protein Diet Bar Fudge Truffle flavour a 7/10.

Chocolate Mint flavour:

I found that the Optimum Protein Diet Bar Chocolate Mint flavour had a tasty mint and chocolate combination. If you like the chocolate and mint flavour, you will like this combination. Therefore, in regards to taste, I award Optimum Protein Diet Bar Chocolate Mint flavour an 8/10.

Texture:

Peanut Butter flavour:

I found that the Optimum Protein Diet Bar Peanut Butter flavour was relatively easy to chew. Therefore, in regards to texture, I award Optimum Protein Diet Bar Peanut Butter flavour an 8/10.

Fudge Truffle flavour:

I found that the Optimum Protein Diet Bar Fudge Truffle flavour was not overly hard to chew. Therefore, in regards to texture, I award Optimum Protein Diet Bar Fudge Truffle flavour a 7/10.

Chocolate Mint flavour:

I found that the Optimum Protein Diet Bar Chocolate Mint flavour was fairly easy to chew. Therefore, in regards to texture, I award Optimum Protein Diet Bar Chocolate Mint flavour an 8/10.

Overall Review:

I was somewhat distraught to read what I deem a misleading claim on the part of Optimum Nutrition, which is usually a trustworthy company. However, it wasn't ridiculously off base as many companies' claims are. When it comes to taste, I was fairly impressed. I was displeased with one flavour. In regards to texture, Optimum Protein Diet Bars were easy to chew, unlike many protein bar/meal replacement bar alternatives on the market. Optimum Protein Diet Bars did contain a high amount of sugar alcohols. However, this is better than refined sugar and it appears that most protein bars and meal replacement bars have taken this path. Therefore, for an overall review, I award Optimum Protein Diet Bars a 7.5/10.
