The Protein Bar that doesn’t taste Vile!

I have always struggled with protein bars! I want one, I buy one (sometimes based on the image from the wrapper), I open it and it tastes VILE. I then get annoyed because I just spent anywhere from $5-$7 and have to throw it out. I know there are a lot of people out there that agree!!!

I was leaving an event last week and I was asked if I wanted to try a sample of a bar, I was just about to workout so I kindly declined (to be honest I was kind of nervous sampling a bar in front of them considering my track record with bars and having to lie to their face that it tasted good when it didn’t) and he offered me a bar for after my workout.

Post workout, I was starving and decided to try one taking the tiniest of bites for fear of wanting to spit it out. For the first time EVER I actually really liked it and finished one of the two bars that comes in the pack. I should note that I gave my trainer one and she immediately called me to tell me she loved them and wanted to get more!!!!

I called the co-founder who was at the event that day and told him how much we loved them and that I 100% back the bars and want to get the word out because they are just that good. So now let me tell you about the bars:

  • these one’s contain NO NUTS (they are not 100% nut free because they have nuts in their facility, but there are no physical nuts in the bars which is rare to find)
  • the ingredients are all natural and words you can actually pronounce
  • they are vegan, high protein, high fiber and low in sugar
  • they are made in Canada
  • ingredients include: organic real chocolate (cocao powder, cocoa butter), yacon syrup, pumpkin seeds, dates, hemp protein powder, sacha inchi protein powder, coconut sugar, maca powder, raw vanilla bean powder and pink salt … that’s it!

So two things I want to note: First, these must be kept refrigerated (not a big deal), I put mine in my purse while I am working out and then I eat a square when I am done. Second, don’t be scared off by the fat content (11g of fat in a square). It’s all healthy fats and if there wasn’t any fat then it wouldn’t fill you up. I did ask if this could be used as a meal supplement and they don’t recommend that, but they are definitely good for when you are hungry and want to snack on literally everything in your house (like I do), just eat one square and you will feel satisfied (it’s true). This is precisely why I have tons of these bars stocked in my fridge.

They are so sure you are going to love it, that they are offering a sample pack on their website for $3.79 with NO SHIPPING!!!

Where to Buy: Summerhill Market, Ambrosia, Qi (though I just bought their last few – I told them to order more ASAP) and on their website Mid-Day Squares.
Price: $4 a pack (2 squares in each pack)

Thanks to our amazing friends at Mid-Day Squares, they are giving away 1 box with 12 packs of Fudge Ya bars. The contest is open to Canadian residents only. Here’s how to enter:
