I was fortunate enough to be chosen to test out an alpha version of Animal/Universal’s new Snack Bar, so I figured i’d throw up a quick review of it.
The only unknown is macros - can’t really judge it in that department unfortunately. Being likely a “whole food/real food” bar + probably protein packed, i’ll guess it’s in the 300-350 cal range, 10-12f, 20-30c, 16-20p?
I received two bars. My initial review will be for this tasty flavor - Peanut Butter, Honey, and Oats.
It’s a little lighter in color than my potato phone camera suggests. The outer shell is clear as day the peanut butter portion, so picture more so a typical PB color.
This bar is fairly soft. It was very easy to break in half and very easy to chew. Honestly a really delightful texture - not hard at all, but not mushy soft.
Here’s a close up of one of the halves before biting into it.
This was after a bite. It’s pretty clear there’s peanuts in here and they add a nice little crunch to the bar.
The flavors Peanut Butter, Honey, and Oats are clearly evident. The first bite is a mouth full of PB, then the honey kicks in, and right now I have an oat-y aftertaste in my mouth (literally just ate it now lol). VERY good and 100% a flavor i’d spring for.
I couldn’t put my tongue on it initially, but I just realized the inner texture is very much like a cliff bar, but a bit softer.
The PB shell can get a bit melty/mushy. This bar was removed from the fridge around 730a, been sitting at room temp since about 8a, and ate it at 12p. It was definitely room temp when I ate it, and I think if I left it in my hand too long, the PB shell would probably start melting into my hand. For how I eat bars, this wouldn’t be a huge issue, especially during winter here in PA, but in the summer I would not want to leave this in a hot car. I know this stat matters to people so I felt inclined to include it.
I’m very happy with this bar. It’s been maybe 10 minutes since I ate it and I feel like I just had lunch… Very fulfilling compared to a normal protein bar.
Next up will be the second flavor I received - “Rich Chocolate Peanut Butter”… Man I’m excited for this one. Maybe i’ll split this one with my fiance.
