FITJOY Protein Bar Review


Welcome to a new day and a new week. No better time to start taking better care of your body...you only get one!

If you want to start by finding a healthier alternative to your 3pm candy bar, look no further.

We recently received 2 new flavours of FITJOY Protein bars to try: Chocolate Raspberry and Cookies and Cream.

As usual, my family got their paws on them and I only got to see them briefly, before they were all devoured. I actually was given an Iced Cinnamon while at GNC a few months ago, that I was looking forward to trying, but Adam ended up taking it with him on a work trip. Sigh!

At least they all had the decency to give me their feedback, which was very very positive.

Big A ate the Raspberry Chocolate one. She made a face as she took the first few bites, explaining that it felt very sticky on her teeth, but eventually, she decided she loved it. Little A really liked it too, describing it as very chocolately, and very filling.

Little A loved the Cookies and Cream one even more, which she described as having a chocolate layer, a cookie dough layer, and then a dark chocolate, mini chocolate chip layer....pure heaven! Big A liked that one too, and so did Adam, who said it tasted like a malted milk chocolate bar.

I like that they have 20g of protein, are high in fibre and low in sugar. Here are the nutrition stats for Cookies and Cream flavour:

Do I recommend these? Yes, as an occasional snack, when you are looking for something that will fill the hunger gap, and satisfy a sweet craving without breaking your calorie bank. Little A is already asking when we can get more. Just remember for kids, and adults with lower energy or protein needs, you may want to eat half the bar at a time.
