Redcon1 MRE Bars Review

Taste

Blueberry Cobbler –A cobbler is blueberry dish covered with a batter, dumpling, or biscuit crust… You do taste a small portion of oatmeal in the aftertaste, but you get a bold buttery undertone and a fresh blueberry flavor. The density of both the blueberry and the crust of a cobbler compliment each other perfectly. The balance in this bar is fantastic, and there is no artificial taste, which is common with fruity flavors on the market. This beats the One Blueberry Bar and Quest Blueberry by a mile.

Banana Nut Bread –The banana flavor shines upon the initial bite. The banana flavor is rich and lasts all the way through the aftertaste. The nut flavor is a faded in the aftertaste. The texture plays perfectly with this flavor as the outside has that smooth banana flavor and the inside provides the complimenting crunch of a nut. The only other bar I could compare this to is Quest, and it is hands down light years better.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip – There are small little chunks of oats on the inside of the bar as the outside provides the chocolate chip glaze. The milk chocolate is outstanding. With how rich and bold the flavor is it helps amplify the filling of the oats. The texture is identical to eating a fudgy no bake cookie. This is the clear-cut winner of the three, and an absolute home run. If you were to choose one flavor I would pick this one with ease!

Texture

The texture of the protein bar is very similar to a MP’s Combat Crunch Bar, Grenade Carb Killa, and ProSupps MyBar The outside is layered with a coating and small crispies to help enhance the texture. The inside has a soft consistency even with the whole food makeup of the bar. The inside is not like a brownie as the Fit Crunch and SinFit bar resemble. Overall the crunchy outside shell and smooth inside give it a great one two punch to get the best of both worlds.

Formula

20g Protein

Just like the MRE Powder the protein sources are made up of chicken, beef isolate, salmon, and Egg. The major carb sources are rolled oats, blueberries, yams, and sweet potatoes. RedCon1 markets this as a whole food bar due to the ingredient profile. What separates this bar from others on the market is the all -natural approach just like Universal did with the Animal Snak bars. For many people too many artificial sweeteners and sugars can cause a ton of bloating. These bars are the exact opposite and settle with ease.

Cost

$3.49 for a single bar or $34.99 for a box of 12. This is the retail price off the Redcone1 main webpage. As many fans know RedCon1 does a ton of intro sales and deals, so do not be surprised to see the price of these bars drop. There is a 20% discount right off the main Stack3d Page making it $27.99/Box or $2.33/Bar. Due to the makeup of the bars this is why their price point may be a touch higher (Just like their MRE Powder is higher for a MRP).

Put this in the ‘see I told you’ Chocolate Chip Oatmeal would be the way to go category…

Thanks for the review.


#3

My guess was blueberry was going to be the best based off what the employees and reps who had the chance to give this first crack. The oatmeal chocolate chip tasted like a straight Fudge No Bake. The oatmeal really shines and the flavor of the chocolate is super rich. They did a great job with it. Absolutely destroys Quest Oatmeal Chocolate Chip (well that really is not saying much haha).

Wish they had samples of the new formula, currently still have a tub of old stuff left and don’t wanna drop the money if it can’t quite compare. High hopes nevertheless though

Are these going to be available in the B&M stores where I can try one first?


#13

New formula samples are in the process of being made.


#14

Ordered the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip this morning…Looking forward to it.


#15

Was able to pickup the Blueberry Bar today at a local store and Bob described it just right. So far these are 2/2 for me, Blueberry and Oatmeal Chip are excellent. One to go


#16

Would not let you down on the reviews my man.
Banana nut is my least favorite. Needs way more banana flavor.


#17

Yea, I don’t have high hopes for the Banana.I didn’t care for the Banana MRE when I tried it.
