In this post, I will review the second protein bar that I received in the three pack variety from Amazon by Hemplete. I will taste the Hemplete Peanut Butter Sea Salt Hemp Protein Bar and give you my opinion.
I must say that I was pleasantly surprised when I reviewed the Cashew Berry Hemp Protein Bar in the last post, and I am looking forward to trying this one out. Having never eaten anything with hemp in it before, I was not sure what to expect, but I enjoyed the Cashew Berry, even though the flavor was very earthy and different. The ingredients list is a short one, so let’s see what’s in this protein bar.
List Of Ingredients
Hemp Protein Concentrate, Organic Peanut Butter, Non-GMO Soluble Tapioca Fiber, Water, Organic Peanuts, Organic Coconut Nectar, Organic Hemp Seeds, Organic Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt, Stevia.
That’s it, short, sweet and clean.
Important Nutrition Facts
Serving Size – 1 Bar, Calories 200, Total Fat 11g, Saturated Fat 2g, Trans Fat 0g, Cholesterol 0mg, Sodium 90mg, Total Carbohydrate 18g, Dietary Fiber 11g, Sugars 3g, Sugar Alcohol 0g, Protein 15g.
I like the fact that this protein bar has a good amount of fiber, has no sugar alcohol, and is low in sodium. With 15g of protein bar bar, this is a good nutritional choice.
My Honest Review
When I open the wrapper to this protein bar, I get that earthy smell that I received when I tried the Cashew Berry bar. There is very little peanut butter smell that was barely detectable.
This bar is solid through with no layering. There are small bits of peanuts throughout the bar, and has a nice peanut flavor that is mild. The texture is soft and chewy and very fresh, although a bit grainy, but not too much.
The bar gets moist as I chew, and finishes with a slight taste of hemp. The hemp is not as prevalent as it was in the Cashew Berry bar, but it comes through in the background and is mild. I like the taste and texture of this bar a lot, it is satisfying and there is no strong aftertaste as is the case with many of the protein bars Iv’e tried.
This bar would make a great mid day snack with a bottle of water or other beverage to help wash it down. I could see myself eating one of these bars before or after a workout to get some protein, and there is also a nice amount of dietary fiber. Even though this protein bar is not sweet, it is very tasty and I feel like I am eating something very nutritious, as opposed to eating a sugary candy bar.
These hemp bars may not appeal to everyone, but if I like it, I believe that you may like it as well. I normally want my protein products to taste good and have a soft texture, and this bar has that and more. I would definitely eat more of these bars in the future, and I suggest you give this one a try.
