    Holy crap, never had a protein bar I actually enjoyed before.

    These were from memory £1.29 from home bargains and would happily eat these in place of regular chocolate

    Stuck one in the oven for a minute or two after cooking and let it melt a bit. Amazing

    I had the birthday cake ones and wasn’t that impressed, the battle oats are nice (if you get the ones with loads of choc chunks). I’m really
    Liking quest bars atm.

    Some of these discount stores do some decent ones. B&M have a few in the 80p to £1.20 mark offering between 20-30g carbs and 17-25g pro. And some RTD shakes with only 10g carb.

    I love those but only a one a day man lol. All apart from the chocolate ones. Whenever I drink one I’m reminded of Alan partridge saying “he drinks that yellow stuff in tins... he’s an idiot” about his ex’s new boyfriend.

    Nutramino coconut slightly warmed up was the nicest one I ever tried. It was £2.30 for the bar and I will saviour the memory as I'm not paying that ever again.

    The slightly warmed up bit makes a huge difference I found.

    One of my old bosses told me 10 seconds makes all the difference, couldn't believe it. Made it easier to get through a box of something I bought that were horrific anyway

    Ye they are nice, soft enough that you don’t have to heat them up.

    Never tried heating them up mate, mainly because I'd be on the road back from my Ma's in Wales, see if I can manage to hang on next time to give it a try lol.

    Warrior flap jacks. In red velvet and peanut buttery. Best flap jacks around

    They do a chocy type bar too. Nice if you like that sort of thing
