Two BPI flavors down. Two more to go. I wasn’t overly impressed with the cinnamon graham cracker or the s’mores flavors from BPI, but I have some higher hopes for the BPI Cookies and Cream bar as it’s usually a pretty solid flavor with most other protein bars.
BPI Cookies and Cream Review
This was a little better than both of those two aforementioned flavors, but it still wasn’t anything incredible. It still just feels like an inferior version of a Quest bar to me down from the texture to the taste. There are mini cream and cookie pieces scattered throughout, but I couldn’t really taste the cream pieces. The little cookie bits do add a nice crunch, but flavor wise they didn’t do much either. The base flavor of the bar tastes somewhat similar to Quest’s cookies and cream flavor, just without all the amazing chunks of chocolate and cream that make that bar so damn good.
The macros of the BPI Cookies and Cream bar total out to 230 calories consisting of the macros 20p/28c/8f in addition to 16g fiber. These are a little better than the s’mores flavor, but a little worse than the cinnamon graham cracker. Relatively speaking in comparison to all other protein bars out there though, they’re a little on the high side.
If these bars would have came out years ago, my review would probably be completely different. The nutritional profile is excellent, it has good protein sources, a lot of fiber and the flavor isn’t too bad. However, there have been so amazing tasting protein bars with equally as good of nutritional profiles to come out in recent years that these really don’t do anything special to set them apart. The flavor has just been flat out done better. As far as cookies and cream flavors go, it’s really hard to recommend this one because to me personally, the Quest version is better in every way down from macros to calories to taste. I maybe recommended some of their other flavors because they’re more unique, but you can find a better cookies and cream bar elsewhere.
