Optimum Nutrition are renowned for creating the highest quality protein powders such as Gold Standard 100% Whey and Casein which I’ve been using regularly for years now, but I had not actually tried any of their protein bars.

The Problem With Protein Bars

Like many people, I’ve struggled to find a protein bar which I’ve actually enjoyed the taste and texture of and could enjoy eating on a regular basis.

Your typical protein bar is heavy and stodgy, which has created quite a negative association whenever you mention protein bars to someone.

I’ve dabbled with various different protein bars, mainly out of necessity for a high protein low fat snack to stop me eating unhealthy snacks and trips to the vending machine at work. However once the pack has ran out, I have never actually raced to replace them because the taste has never really been the most appealing.

I’m sure you can relate?

What makes Optimum Nutrition Whipped Bites different?

Where do I start?  The taste, the texture, the moreishness?

After my first bite, I knew this was the protein bar for me.  I can honestly say I have never tasted a protein bar as good as Whipped Bites.

It has a soft, creamy texture similar to an actual chocolate bar, which made me think there is no way anything that tastes this good can actually be healthy?

Well, each Optimum Nutrition Whipped Bite bar boasts 20g of protein, 7g of fibre, 8.2g fat and 243 calories.  So think of your favourite chocolate bar, but with actual nutritional value!

When should you eat them?

Well the problem with Optimum Nutrition Whipped Bites is that as they taste so good, you risk snacking on them when you don’t actually need them.

I’m guilty of going through a pack of 12 Whipped Bites in a week, and I know of plenty of people who have the same problem!

If you have a job, especially an office job then you often look forward to your next break, or snack, to help break up your day.

By having Whipped Bites in your drawer you have temptation just sat there in arms reach, and while they are healthy and have nutritional value, they also include sugar and fat which can be counter productive to your fitness goals if you don’t take them at the right time!

Optimum Nutrition Whipped bites, like any protein bar or training supplement, should be taken either after training or during the day to help boost your protein intake and maintain healthy energy levels.

They should be used as part of a balanced diet, so you shouldn’t be relying on them for your nutrition needs.  You should always adapt your diet depending on the level of physical activity you are undertaking that day or week.

If you’re not training, or not working hard enough and consuming protein bars then you’re likely going to gain body fat and you’ll be scratching your head as to why you’re gaining weight!

Final Thoughts

When you’re buying protein supplements, the last thing you want is to buy a pack or a tub of protein only to find out that:

1)  It tastes awful and you cannot bring yourself to finish it

2)  It doesn’t actually work or benefit your body.

Optimum Nutrition Whipped Bites overcomes both of these problems!

You can rest assured that they contain high quality protein and nutritional value, created by the worlds leading sports nutrition company who have a history and reputation for creating the best selling products in the industry.

As for taste, well you will have to take my word for it!

I guarantee you there is not a better tasting protein bar out there than Whipped Bites, just make sure you don’t demolish the whole pack within a few days…..it has been done before!
