I’m always excited to try a new flavor in the One line, and the OhYeah One cookies & crème bar was no exception. The textures and flavors of their bars resemble real candy bars the most out of any other protein bars out there in my opinion, and I do love cookies & crème as a flavor. However, I’ve had a hard time finding good protein bars based on that flavor that’s not Quest. While I love Combat Crunch bars, I was let down by their take on this classic flavor. I’m hoping that One’s version stacks up better, but there’s only way one to be sure.
OhYeah One Cookies & Creme Review
My hopes came true, as the OhYeah One cookies & crème bar definitely was a notch above Combat Crunch’s take on the flavor, but still maybe not as good as Quest due to the quality of mix-ins and accuracy of the flavor itself. The texture of the bar is very candy bar-esque like all the other One flavors so that places it in the top echelon with that, but the mix-ins are pretty small and eventful, and overall don’t do too much to the experience of the bar. While the flavor of the bar is really tasty as well, I don’t exactly get a true cookies & crème vibe from it. This feeling is only amplified by the actual cookie pieces not doing a lot to add to it. Still though, the flavor was very enjoyable, just not executed as well as it maybe could have been.
The calories for the OhYeah One cookies & crème bar total out to 220 calories consisting of the macros 22p/23c/7f in addition to 10g fiber. Basically the exact same macros as all the other One flavors so it makes tracking the flavor convenient like usual. Fiber could be a tad higher but with the texture/flavor of the bar, I can easily overlook it.
I had a solid experience with this treat. While the OhYeah One cookies & crème bar won’t be my go-to flavor with their brand, it was still very enjoyable. I did like most of the other One flavors better and I still think Quest has the best version of this flavor out there, so with that in mind I don’t think I will revisit this one as often as their other flavor. I’ll come back to it on rare occasion though whenever the mood strikes. I still recommend it however, as the flavor is very pleasant and the texture of the bar is excellent.
+Very good taste
+Whey protein isolate
-Could use more, bigger mix-ins
Overall Rating: A-
