The Simply Bar – Review

The Simply Bar – Review


the-simply-barI started my fitness journey in June of this year and I needed something to help me in the protein area. I like eating something with protein before and after my workout sessions.

I also like snacking and I know I need improvement in that area, so I figure if I can do better in the protein area, then my snacking habits would change too. In the past, I have done a little experiment with having protein with each meal I eat and it alleviated my cravings.

Here enters The Simply Bar. I do not eat protein bars a lot, but I have tried a few in the past. Those that I did try, were either too sweet or did not taste good.

The Wellness Foods Company sent me four flavors (box) – (lemon coconut, caramel peanut, cinnamon pecan, peanut butter chocolate) of the The Simply Bar to review.

I am glad I tried the The Simply Bar, because it is by far one of the best protein bars I have tried to date.

the-simply-bar-textureMy Review of The Simply Bar

The first Simply Bar that I tried was the flavor caramel peanut. I was not impressed with the caramel peanut flavor and I thought I would not like the other flavors, but luckily I found myself falling in love with The Simply Bar.

The Simply Bar has a texture of a rice crispy treat, but soy crisps are thicker and not as light as a rice crispy.

The Simply Bar is not very sweet, but it has just the right amount of sweetness. I liked that it is not too sweet.

I raved to my husband about these bars and that I noticed something happen for me within a 1-2 days of eating The Simply Bars.  I did not snack like I usually do, because The Simply Bar was very filling.

Compared to other protein bars that I have tried, I can say The Simply Bar is the best. Why? Because it is high in protein, low in calories, low in sugar and has fiber.

My favorite Simply Bar is Lemon Coconut, with Cinnamon Pecan coming in second.

Overall, I enjoyed The Simply Bar and I cannot wait to place my order.

I recommend that you try The Simply Bar, you will not be disappointed.

    I LOVE THE SIMPLY BAR!!!! its the most amazing product first protein bar ive found that does kill my blood sugar and its not full of fat and sugar and tastes great!! my favorite is the coca coffee one!!!

  2. The lemon bar does sound good; the caramel one sounds too sweet. Why didn’t you care for the latter?

    • Hey Kymberly,

      The caramel is not too sweet, it was a little salty to me, but it could have been my taste buds. I tried it a few more times and it wasn’t as bad, but it is not one I would purchase.

      Hmmm…your comluv post sounds very interesting, I’ll be over. 😉

      Thanks for stopping by!
