When thinkThin offered me an opportunity to sample and review their new Lean Protein and Fiber bars I jumped at the chance. A protein bar or 2 are always in my carry-on bag on trips. I have been trapped at airports and hotels when the only choices have been fried grease and my secret protein stash has saved me from making an unhealthy choice. These new bars sounded delicious and free samples are always nice.
The facts... each bar has 150 calories, 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, low in sugar, gluten-free, 100% non-GMO. The come in 5 flavors: Chocolate Almond Brownie, Chunky Chocolate Peanut Butter, Honey Drizzle Peanut, Salted Caramel and Cinnamon Bun White Chocolate... yum!
Chocolate Almond Brownie - my absolute favorite of the bunch, rich chocolate brownie flavor with little nut bits. I'll be buying this one again and again for sure.
Cinnamon Bun White Chocolate - close second for my favorite, sweet and cinnamony (is that a word!?)
Chunky Chocolate Peanut - classic flavor combination, my Mum's favorite.
Salted Caramel - rich caramel flavor but not as salty as I would like.
Honey Drizzle Peanut - perfect name, it does taste like peanut butter with drizzle of honey, Mum and I both liked this one.
As someone who lives in a warm climate (Southern California) I'd love to see thinkThin create some of these without chocolate coating and I'd love if they would develop a few fruity flavors, a Blueberry or Apple Pie version maybe.
