Review: Nature Valley Protein Bars - Peanut & Chocolate

Review: Nature Valley Protein Bars - Peanut & Chocolate
I'm a bit of a cereal bar junkie and I've been meaning to review the Nature Valley Protein range. These have been available in the US for ages but are a fairly recent edition in the UK. I picked up the Peanut & Chocolate variety but there is also a Roasted Peanuts, Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds flavor available too. 
Review: Nature Valley Protein Bars - Peanut & Chocolate
The Nature Valley Protein range is described as having 15% of your daily protein needs, with 30% less sugar compared to the average adult cereal bar. The lower sugar is definitely evident in the flavor of this bar, it's nowhere near as sweet as most other cereal bars, almost to the point of blandness. The peanut flavor was also disappointing in these bars with a bitter edge rather than a little salty kick. I didn't really enjoy the chocolate chips either, they didn't seem to add any sweetness or flavor. The overall texture of these bars was also lacking as they were quite hard and brittle rather than chewy. 
I don't know enough about protein to recommend these bars on that basis, but when it it comes to flavor there are far tastier cereal bar options out there. 
Grocery Gems Verdict: Nature Valley Protein Bars
RATING: 5 out of 10.
Buy It again?: No - although I still want to try the Nature Valley Protein Granola cereal.
Purchased: Tesco
Price: £2.89p (5 bars).
