The moment has come. I’m FINALLY trying what is considered to be the holy grail of protein bars by many people. I’ve heard from numerous others about how this is the best tasting protein bar on the market. I’ve been putting off trying it for so long because it is calorically dense and I was prepping for my pro debut on poverty macros. Now that my contest season is over though, I can finally fit this beast in. I’m getting anxious just staring down at the bar as I type this so let’s waste no more time and begin this Fit Crunch Birthday Cake review.
Fit Crunch Birthday Cake Review
Holy ****. This is the real deal boys and girls. Everything about this bar is pretty damn amazing. This is probably my favorite Fit Crunch flavor based off first impression. The soft baked texture provides a good firmness on the outside, but nice chewiness on the inside. It’s a good balance. I will be honest though, while this did taste outstanding, I thought the birthday cake flavor could have been more accurate. It kind of tasted like a mixture of vanilla/fruity pebbles with a bit of birthday cake in there as opposed to straight up birthday cake. Maybe I’m just nitpicking because I’ve heard such great things but regardless, it was still incredibly delicious.
Now, the bad. The Fit Crunch Birthday Cake flavor totals out to 380 calories consisting of the macros 30p/27c/16f in addition to 2g fiber. Yeah… Definitely not the best nutritional profile that’s for sure. The 30g protein is really high and nice to see higher than the carbs, but the 16g fat really throws off the macros and brings up the total caloric count by a large amount.
I knew this Fit Crunch Birthday Cake review was long overdue so I’m glad to have finally joined the rest of the fitness world in trying it out. If I’m being completely honest though, I do think it is slightly overhyped. It was damn good, but it really wasn’t much better than some other birthday cake bars that I’ve tried. It tasted pretty similar to the Combat Crunch Birthday Cake bar, just slightly better. I still think the Oh Yeah! One Birthday Cake bar BARELY edges this one out, but I need to have more of these to say for sure. Regardless I don’t think I can call this the best tasting protein bar on the market though, in my personal opinion at least. Top 5 for me taste wise? Easily. Top 3? Probably. The VERY best though? I don’t know about that, that’s a pretty bold statement. If you like birthday cake as a flavor and/or Fit Crunch bars, then waste no more time and track this bad boy down NOW. Assuming you have the calories to spare.
