I’ve tried a couple of other Ansi protein bars before, and they were hugely disappointing. The texture was just rock hard and the flavor was somewhat bland. However, it seems they are trying to turn over a new leaf with their protein bars as they completely repackaged them and came out with brand new flavors altogether. Apparently they don’t even make the other flavors anymore that I’ve tried in the past. I’m pretty curious to see how these new ones compare as they have another chance to win me over, so let’s waste no more time and begin this Ansi Raspberry Truffle review.
Ansi Raspberry Truffle Review
Upon opening, I quickly noticed a couple things. The first thing that caught my eye was the chocolate coating that covered the bottom side of the bar; this feature was completely absent from their original bars and is pretty cool to see. Not only does it help the visual aesthetics of the bar, but it provides it with a nice hint of chocolatey flavor too. The raspberry flavor of the bar is pretty tasty on its own if raspberries are your thing, but the chocolate component certainly helps amplify it. Secondly, the texture of the bar was noticeably softer than my experience with their original bars as well. It may have been an old batch or something, but I remember those things were like solid granite. They were an absolute pain to chew through. This one though, was very pleasant to bite into and a soft chew all around.
The raspberry truffle flavor totals out to 205 calories consisting of the macros 20p/25c/7f in addition to 19g fiber. The nutritional content on this bar is absolutely outstanding and some of the very best in the protein bar industry. Very few bars are packing near 20g fiber while keeping the carbs and fat as low as they are here.
Overall, I had a COMPLETELY different experience with this bar compared to their original bars which are rightfully discontinued. The experience was so different that I’m almost convinced that I got an old or ‘bad’ batch when I tried their original protein bars, either that or they just REALLY stepped their game up with these new flavors. This one was just WAY softer and had more complex flavors with the chocolate coating coming into play which really gave the bar some personality. Job well done, Ansi. While there are a lot of white chocolate raspberry protein bars out there, there aren’t very many raspberry truffle bars so I can end this Ansi Raspberry Truffle review with a definite recommendation from me.
