The Bulletproof® Collagen Bar
The bars come in 2 flavors:
We tried the Chocolate flavor (since we're chocoholics and we're not afraid to admit it)
Ingredients & Consistency
Firstly. let's have a look at the ingredients.
- Organic cashew butter - clearly, the base of the bar.
- Upgraded collagen protein - source of protein
- chicory root fiber - added fiber
- Bulletproof XCT Oil powder - source of good fats
- Organic cashews
- Bulletproof Upgraded Chocolate Powder
- Bulletproof Brain Octane
- Organic coconut oil
- sea salt
The bar contains pretty much all the ingredients that you would use for a Bulletproof Coffee, with the added ingredients to turn it into a bar.
However, the consistency of the bar is somewhat off. There were remarks posted about having trouble in higher temperatures, and we can understand why.
The bar is very crumbly, resembling a "sand cookie" type consistency.
It falls apart really easily, making this a little bit impractical if you are somewhere on the go, which sort of ruins the whole idea of this bar.
|As you can see, it breaks apart really easily|
The bar tastes OK, it dissolves a bit when you take a bite and is not too sweet. It is definitely very different than the average protein bar (albeit that this bar isn't marketed as a protein bar)
It's filling and satisfying though and keeps you going for a few hours.
If you are a follower of the Bulletproof Diet, this bar is a perfect addition to your snack option.
But if you are looking for a protein bar that can handle a bit of carrying around in your bag, this might not be the best choice.
Would we buy again? Probably not, but if you are interested, have a look at www.bulletproof.com
