This is the last of the Combat Crunch flavors for me to try, so it’s a bit of a sad day. I’ve really enjoyed every one of their bars so far in exception to maybe the cookies & cream flavor which was just average, so I write this Combat Crunch chocolate peanut butter review in a bittersweet note knowing that it will be my last virgin experience with this brand… Until they decide to come out with more flavors, that is.
Combat Crunch Chocolate Peanut Butter Review
Given how consistent Combat Crunch is, it was no surprised that I ended up really enjoying this. The texture was still that soft baked consistency with a slight crunch like all of their others bars which I’ve come to grow quite fond of. The chocolate coat on the outside tasted like their other chocolate coats, but the peanut buttery taste on the inside was pretty delicious and hit the classic flavor fairly well. One of the better takes I’ve had on a peanut butter protein bar, for sure.
The calories for the chocolate peanut butter flavor total out to 210 calories consisting of the macros 20p/25c/7f in addition to 12g fiber. I think this is basically the exact same profile as all their other flavors so no variance there. It is nice to see a peanut butter based protein bar at only 7g fat though, usually they’re a bit higher.
Overall, this was pretty middle of the road for me as far Combat Crunch bars go, maybe even one of the bottom three. That doesn’t sound very good on first read, but when you realize I’ve greatly enjoyed almost every single flavor so far besides just one, that still makes it pretty damn good. I definitely enjoyed this more than Quest’s chocolate peanut butter version at least if comparing the same-named flavor heads on. If I’m ever in the mood for a great tasting peanut butter flavored protein bar with an awesome nutrition profile, this one would be one of my go to bars in addition to the Oh Yeah! One peanut butter pie bar.
Thus ends my Combat Crunch chocolate peanut butter review, and my last review with Combat Crunch in general… For now. I’ll be patiently awaiting for new flavors to arrive (s’mores?!?), so until next time Combat Crunch!
