B-Up Bar Review

BUP_SugarCookie

If you know me, you now that I love trying new things. I’m also a fan of protein bars! Not only are they convenient for a quick breakfast replacement or snack between classes, but there are also a plethora of healthy/low sugar options that taste pretty damn good! B-Up bars are just that.

While not necessarily a new product, this was my first time trying this particular bar. When choosing a protein bar, I generally look for something with clean ingredients and less than 200 calories, at least 20 grams of protein, low carb/sugar and a moderate amount of fat. B-Up meets these standards perfectly! The bars come in 7 flavors; Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Mint, PB&J, Cinnamon Roll, Vanilla Peanut Butter, and Sugar Cookie.

The macros for the Sugar Cookie flavor (the only one I tried) are 20 grams protein, 6 grams fat, 27 grams carbohydrates and 20 grams fiber! Totaling 180 calories.

I tried the bar both straight out of the package and heated up in the microwave for 20 seconds. I highly recommend heating it up as it really brings out the flavor! It tastes just like a sugar cookie and has just the right amount of sweetness. The texture is also spot on, especially when heated!

Overall rating?

Nutrition and ingredients: 10/10

Texture: 8/10

Taste: 8/10

If you are looking for a macro friendly protein bar with clean ingredients I highly encourage you to try this bar! They are available at GNC locations and online (free shipping when you order from their website!). I look forward to trying their other 6 flavors! The Chocolate Chip Cookie dough looks phenomenal.

Hope you enjoyed this post and stay tuned for more product reviews in the future… I plan on utilizing this blog a lot more.

Thanks for reading-
