This is the second and last flavor of MHP’s protein brownies for me to try… Probably for good reason too. I thought their blondie chocolate chip flavor was completely average at best and gave me no reason to ever want to buy it over most protein bars. I usually don’t try to be so pessimistic, but unfortunately I’m expecting the same thing with the MHP chocolate fudge brownie.
MHP Chocolate Fudge Brownie Review
Sometimes I hate being right. I would say this one was even worse than their blondie flavor as well, and that wasn’t even that good to begin with. The chocolate flavor seems very fake tasting and not authentic at all; I can clearly tell I’m eating a product full of protein and not a legitimate brownie. I realize that would be incredibly hard to pull off, but still, certain companies have managed to do it with protein cookies and protein muffins. Occasionally you will get a bite that contains a milk chocolate drop which are pretty flavorful, but the base ‘fudge’ flavor of the brownie itself is very lackluster and not too enjoyable. It leaves a slightly unpleasant after taste in my mouth as well.
The MHP Chocolate Fudge brownie totals out to 190 calories consisting of the macros 15p/21c/8f in addition to 5g fiber. The protein sources are a blend of whey/soy. With the same exact caloric content but less protein/fiber than a Quest bar and not too much lower calories than most other great protein bars… Yeah, absolutely no reason to ever buy this again.
One large disappointment. The MHP chocolate fudge brownie was not very good at all, and probably the worst protein brownie I’ve ever had. That’s not saying a whole lot considering I haven’t really had that many let alone a good one really in the first place, but still, the fact still stands. Maybe one day a company will manage to create a great tasting brownie full of protein like they somewhat have with cookies, and definitely have with bars/muffins. That day is not today though.
+Some whey protein isolate
-Not a very good taste, wouldn’t choose over most protein bars
-Some soy protein isolate
