If you asked me a few months ago if I was fan of these gourmet cheesecake bars… The answer would have been a hard no. If you asked me the same question yesterday after trying the first of their new flavors, the answer would be a resounding yes. I really enjoyed the raspberry truffle flavor, so I’m expecting to feel similarly about this flavor so let’s dive on into this Ansi Chocolate Truffle review to find out for sure.
Ansi Chocolate Truffle Review
Like their raspberry truffle flavor, I’m greeted with a pretty aesthetic looking bar featuring a chocolatey coating on the bottom side of the bar. Even though I love chocolate and generally prefer chocolatey bars over fruity bars, I don’t think I enjoyed this one as much as the raspberry truffle flavor surprisingly enough. It wasn’t quite as soft, which might have been my specific bar more than anything, but even still the chocolate base of the bar wasn’t as sweet as I would have liked. The chocolatey coating on the bottom didn’t have as much effect with this bar either since the base of the bar itself is already chocolate so it’s hard to distinguish between the two components; it had more of an impact when contrasting with the raspberry.
The chocolate truffle flavor totals out to 210 calories consisting of the macros 20p/26c/8f in addition to 20g fiber. Near identical macros as their raspberry truffle flavor; just 5 more calories, 1g more fat and 1g more fiber. Still some of the best nutritional content in the protein bar game, though.
While I did enjoy this bar, and certainly a hell of a lot more than their original flavors, I did kind of expect to like it more than I did. Maybe not the best note to end my Ansi Chocolate Truffle review on but it’s the truth at least. Unfortunately the all around chocolatey-ness of the bar just wasn’t too impactful; I think it really needed some type of mix-in for a texture switch up. For a chocolate flavored protein bar though you could definitely do worse taste wise, but you could do better as well. Regardless, the nutritional content on this bar is top notch. If you’re not a fan of mix-ins then this may be the chocolate protein bar for you, but if you’re like me then you may find the flavor/texture to get a little boring by the end.
+Whey protein isolate
-Chocolate coating doesn’t add much to an already chocolatey bar
-Could use some mix-ins
Overall Rating: B+
