I have been keeping an eye out for new protein bars and i came across these #mission1bar at Wal-mart 4 pack for $6.98. So i ended up purchasing 1 box of each flavor in order to give them a try.
Muscle Tech Mission1 Protein Bars
Label advises: gluten free, no artificial flavors or colors, sweetened with stevia
Macros: 60g 210cal 8F 21C 21P 17fiber
Smell: it smells like dough but not chocolate chip cookie dough
Taste unmodified: It is soft, chewy and taste like dough, though only way it taste like cookie dough is when you get the little chocolate chips that cover the top of the bar.
Taste heated (work): It softens up a lot more and gives it a more dough like texture but it loses all its flavor.
Overall: the best way to eat this bar is fresh from the package but in comparison to quest bars, Quest wins on the chocolate chip cookie dough flavor.
Macros: 60g 190cal 6F 24C 20P 20fiber
Smell: it smells like a fiber one 90 chocolate brownie
Taste unmodified: It is soft, chewy (much softer than quest bar), and has a very strong fudge brownie flavor to it. absolutely wonderful!
Taste heated (work): It fluffs up a little and the brownie flavor disappears and a slight aftertaste appears.
Overall: the best way to eat this is fresh from the package unmodified. I have to say i really like this bar and is a nice alternative to Quest brownie flavor unless you plan on to heat or bake the bar, then stick to Quest.
Cookies & Cream
Macros: 60g 200cal 7F 22C 21P 17fiber
Smell: it reminds me of crushed up off-brand oreo cookies
Taste unmodified: The bar is soft and easy to chew. It taste like a mix between “diet” cookies & cream ice cream and sugar free oreos. It is not bad, it is not amazing, its sits right in the middle of being okay. It is not too sweet and it seems to just fall in the middle in all aspects of not being bad or great.
Taste heated (home): It fluffs up and has a more dough like texture to it but it loses all of its flavor.
Overall: the best way to eat this bar is fresh from the wrapper unmodified. Though i do have to say that i prefer this flavor over the Quest version (when eaten unmodified) since it does not make my teeth feel all dirty. Though if i was planning on eating a cookies & cream bar heated or baked I would prefer a Quest bar then.
In order from what I liked the most to least:
2:Cookies & Cream
3:Chocolate Chip Cookie dough
