If you’re like me, you love finding the perfect protein bar for afternoon snacks or when you’re on the road all day. I’ve recently become a huge fan of Muscle Pharm Combat Crunch bars, so when I heard that they recently released a Birthday Cake flavor, I was all over it. While I was out running errands one Saturday, I was running low on energy, so I popped into the GNC in the mall and grabbed the new flavor. All opinions of this flavor are my own, and in now way were they sponsored by Muscle Pharm.
I will say that all of the Combat Crunch flavors are good, but there are a few that are mind-blowing amazing. I’m obsessed with birthday cake flavored anything, so I had extremely high hopes for this bar. I was extremely excited when I saw the sprinkles that coated the top of the bar.
The taste was good. It wasn’t overly sweet which is a good quality, but if I was blindfolded and someone asked me what flavor it was, I would probably just say vanilla… but I guess that’s just a fancy term for birthday cake, right?
It’s quite possible that I have unreal expectations on what a birthday cake protein bar should taste like, but I was a little bit disappointed with this one. I also just really love peanut butter or cookie favored protein bars. Don’t get me wrong, the bar wasn’t bad at all, just probably not one that I would need to buy. I would give their Cinnamon Twist bar a 10/10, and when compared to that flavor, this is probably a 8/10.
Give this bar a shot if you like vanilla or birthday cake type of bars because there is a great chance that you would love this! Even though the flavor did not wow me, I still loved every bite of it!
