Review:

I had this recovery drink after one of my P90X workouts. It definitely takes on the typical “protein drink” taste, but is not gritty like some of the powdered options. The consistency is very similar to milk, which I liked because it filled me up without weighing me down. The vanilla flavor was there, but not too overpowering. All in all, I think it makes for a great post-workout snack and you can’t argue with the protein content. My only con would be the long ingredient list, which can sometimes be a little scary. But if we’re just focusing on taste, this drink far surpasses a lot of the recovery beverages that I’ve tried in the past.

Review:

I must provide full disclosure and tell you that because of my Subtracting Added Sugar challenge, I did not eat this whole bar in one sitting. (I didn’t want to give up 15g of added sugar by eating one bar!) Therefore, I can’t speak much to the “fullness” factor. But I can tell you that in terms of taste and texture, this bar was alright. The cinnamon flavor was there, but you could also taste the grittiness of the protein in every bite, and it was a bit too strong. The best comparison I can give you is that it was a lot like an Iced Oatmeal Raisin Luna bar, without the raisins. Unfortunately, it has HFCS and fractionated palm kernel oil listed in the ingredients list. Sorry, EAS, this bar was just not for me!

3. Myoplex Lite Chocolate Chocolate Chip Crisp Nutrition Bar

Review:

Once again, I did not eat this entire bar in one sitting, so I can’t speak to the “fullness” factor. But in terms of taste, I really liked this one and it was by far my favorite out of all three samples. The little chocolate chips on top were fun and great tasting, and even though the bar still had a protein taste, the grittiness was not as pronounced and the chocolate flavor made the whole thing much more enjoyable. Again, if you are looking for a stellar ingredient list, you may want to watch out for the HFCS listed here. But if you’re focusing just on taste, this bar is great for a post-workout snack and another nice thing about these bars is that they are pretty generously sized. Compared to something like Pure Protein, which has roughly the same amount of calories, these bars have significantly more volume.

Hey Jenn- question for you! How did you get in contact with EAS? I am trying to get some sponsors for myself for triathlons and have been trying to get into contact with them but can’t find the right contact. Did they find you or did you contact them? Thanks a ton, great blog!

Hi Chuck! Thanks for all the nice comments on my blog recently. To answer your question, I actually didn’t work with EAS specifically. It was just a promotional campaign that they did with PR reps. I unfortunately don’t have contact information for sponsorship, etc. although I wish you the BEST of luck as you train for your triathlons! I’d love to hear more about that.
