apex: brownie delight protein bar

i have had my share of protein bars and after much consideration i do not want to have one ever again.

alas, yesterday, the receptionist gave me an apex brownie delight bar coated with real reese's peanut butter chips... the "individually hand-made" bar tasted like a cocolite peat moss brick with gritty reese's pieces in the mix.

the label proudly claims to have 240 calories, 13 grams of protein, 28 grams of carbs, and 8 grams of fat.

i am not a nutritionist, but I can do math... instead of having tar residue in my mouth for 24 hours, i would much rather have a chicken breast and a quarter of a new tree 73% cocoa bar totaling 191 calories, 18.1 grams of protein, 9.5 grams of carbs (that is a very big difference from apex's 28 grams), and 9 grams of fat.

I read your review on the apex brownie delight bar and I have to completely disagree.

You are critiquing this from a chocolate connoisseur’s pov

This is a health food intended more of a 'tasty' alternative to protein shakes and protein bars.

As a body builder I have one of these every morning, and love it. But that is also because I am comparing this to other health food not candy treats.

As a health food this gets 5 out of 5 stars. As a treat I would give it 3

Absolutely. Do some research on what you are reviewing, this is an alternative to protein bars.
