Quick Rule of Thumb for Choosing a Protein Bar {NoGii Review}

I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of this product.

There is nothing that makes my life or healthy eating easier than when I have something on hand that I can grab on the go. Therefore, I am a bar addict!

I used to be totally clueless as to what made one bar better than the other. I had a vague idea that the ingredient list should be short and recognizable and the calorie count should be low.

Well… I was kind of right… but I learned a general rule of thumb from my trainer that changed the way I looked at bars, and gave me the power to decide if it was right for me in one glance.

Chocolate Caramel PB Bites {Protein Milkshake Bar Review and Giveaway}

Can I just make you drool a little?

Chocolate Caramel PB Bites Protein Milkshake Bar

I was over the moon excited when Protein Milkshake Bar approached me with the opportunity to do a review! All you have to do is check out their delicious flavor options and your sweet tooth will be happy. This cheapskate Momma was more than willing to pay for that bit of deliciousness but the amazing people at Protein Milkshake Bar sent me a bag of Chocolate Caramel free of charge.

My dessert-loving sweet tooth thanks you!!

I’m new to protein powders, and I love the idea of a powder that I could use in place of a decadent dessert and not feel deprived. I also love that they take such time and consideration with each batch, which yields less than 50 1lb bags, ensuring freshness.

My biggest concern with protein powders had been taste and texture. Immediately, I could smell that this product would taste amazing – the smell when you open the bag is awesome!!!

I quickly whipped myself up a scoop mixed with milk because I was afraid to go for water first, and it was delicious! It was so decadent that I decided to go ahead and try it with water the next day. Both were amazing!
