Product Review: FortiFX Fit Crunch Bars

We have an obsession for protein bars, and have tried and tested MANY of them over the years. The first protein bars on the market were notorious for basically being a chocolate covered brick. You were tempted by the labels and names, only to find out the bar still tasted like crap and could potentially break your jaw while chewing on them.

Luckily, things have come along way since then.

So when we came across some raving reviews on the FortiFX Fit Crunch bars by Chef Robert Irvine, we HAD to try them. Robert Irvine is a celebrity chef from the UK, but best of all, he lifts and looks it as well. Just Google his name and you'll find him flexing his biceps often enough.
He felt that bad taste = great nutrition was something that had to be changed and that already makes him our hero. He developed the FortiFX Fit Crunch bar, a 6-layer protein bar with a whopping 30 grams of protein.
Currently available in 2 flavors:

- Cookies & Cream
- Peanut Butter

In this review we will have a look at the Peanut Butter flavor.

Ingredients & Macros



Ok, this is not a bar for the faint-hearted. Holding 380 calories, this is more like a meal than a snack, unless you are on a bulk.
Quite high in fat with 16 grams, (144 calories) adding in the 30 grams of protein with 120 calories, the numbers add up quickly.
The remaining calories come from carbohydrates, of which 6 grams is sugar.

Ever wonder where those other carbohydrates are?
Carbohydrates (saccharides) are divided into four chemical groupings:
monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides.

Monosaccharides and disaccharides, which are smaller (lower molecular weight) carbohydrates, are commonly referred to as sugars.
In general, monosaccharides and disaccharides ("the sugars") tend to be included on nutritional labels
Whereas, polysaccharides (starch, glycogen, cellulose) and oligosaccharides (found in many plant sources) tend not to be included on nutritional labels. These are the missing carbs. 

The ingredient list is not short, but after taking a closer look, it isn't riddled with a lot of unpronounceable words either. If to criticize something, it would be the corn syrup & the wheat flour.



The taste

This is where the magic begins. If you would take the bar our of the wrapper and give it to someone who doesn't know what it is, they would simply assume it's a regular candy bar. Covered with chocolate and peanut butter swirls on the outside, this bar looks absolutely delicious.

Then you take a bite, first crunchy on the outside, then the caramel and peanuts and then the chewy cookie base, this bar seriously tastes incredible! There are actual peanuts in there and the chocolate is like actual chocolate, none of that artificial nonsense.

Mouthwatering!






These bars are hands down the best best protein bars we've ever tasted.
Yes, they might not be the healthiest in terms of ingredients and even macros, but if you have to choose between a Snickers bar and the Fit Crunch, you'd be crazy not to pick these. Awesome taste with an added protein bonus.
