I had a craving to eat s’mores so i decided i would try out as many S’mores Bars that i could find. May the S’mores Battle begin!
Pure Protein Bar S’mores (gluten free)
Macros: 50g 200cal 5F 19C 19P 0fiber
Smell: it smells like a s’mores with maybe a hint of coffee
Taste unmodified: I tried to bend/ break it in half but it would not budge. It was VERY very Very chewy, took a good minute trying to chew my first bite. It was hard to pin point the flavors due to excessive chewing.
Taste heated (work): Much easier to eat and the graham cracker and marshmallow flavors became more apparent and the melted chocolate flavor faded into the background.
Overall: It looked horrible but I think that is due to it being shipped to me in 90 degree weather and the excessive chewiness was a bit too much to handle, but once it was heated things got a lot better. Would I buy this again? Unfortunately, I will not.
Universal Hi Protein Bar S’mores
Macros: 85g 270cal 4F 33C 32P <1fiber
Smell: it is like a recess peanut butter cup with graham crackers
Taste unmodified: Instantly get the Palmer chocolate taste along with graham crackers. the chewiness is that of a chocolate covered marshmallow.
Taste heated (work): the chocolate improves but the bar continues to be a marshmallow textured chocolate covered graham cracker.
Overall: the flavor is good, i enjoyed the heated version much better and i would choose this bar over the Pure Protein bar.
Luna Bar S’mores (gluten free, low gi)
Macros: 48g 180cal 5F 28C 9P 1fiber
Smell: it smells like a granola bar with hint of graham crackers
Taste unmodified: It is just like Quaker s’mores granola bar but softer to chew. the strength of the flavor is light but it is good.
Taste heated (home): it smells more like a s’more but the bar completely fell apart and the flavor diminished
Overall: this was quite tasty, tasted better than the Universal bar. This is a healthier substitute to Quaker granola bar, i just wish this had higher protein.
Quest Protein Bar S’mores
Macros: 60g 180cal 8F 23C 20P 13fiber
Smell: it smells of graham crackers and marshmallows with a hint of chocolate
Taste unmodified: It taste like a freshly made s’mores from the camp fire but cold . yum!!
Taste heated (work): It loses abit of the chocolate flavor but it is still good.
Toasted (using Bagel conveyor belt): Gives it a more realistic taste since the graham cracker part toasts up a bit.
Overall: this can be eaten in any variation and it will be good. i think i am in love.
Rankings: Quest -> Luna -> Universal -> Pure Protein
