A couple of weeks back I received another box of protein bars to sample. I’ve never eaten so many different protein bars in my life! This time it was Pure Fit protein bars. Five different flavours. Granola Crunch, Â Chocolate Brownie, Almond Crunch, Peanut Butter Crunch and Berry Almond Crunch. I was impressed primarily by the fact that all of their bars are gluten free and not only a selection. This is not the norm but it’s something I’m very happy to see as it takes away contamination worries. All of these bars are gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, vegan and kosher…That’s a lot of things but the question is do they taste good?
Yes they do, they’re pretty good. Once again, as you know I’m a fan of peanut butter related things so I was impressed by the Peanut Butter Crunch and the Almond Crunch, the taste of which could easily be mistaken with nibbling spoonfuls of peanut or almond butter out of the jar. 🙂 Crunchy and tasty.
Like most protein bars they are around 200 calories per bar making them a good snack for before or after a medium to long run. Personally I’d rather save my calories for half a bag of Haribo or a couple of handfuls of jelly beans but this isn’t because these bars don’t taste good, it’s just that I love Haribo and jelly beans! If you’re looking for a quick fix of protein then these bars wouldn’t be a bad choice with 18g of protein per bar which sounds like a lot to me. Perfect for munching before or after a gluten free run to provide you with or give you back some of your energy! Again they contain gluten free certified oats which I don’t seem to be having any issues with so far and as mentioned on the packaging they indeed do not melt so you don’t need to worry about keeping one in your purse for later if you live in a hot climate.
