Promax Pro Series bars have 350 calories, which might seem high, but this is a 90 gram bar. If you compare it to bars that are half the size, they usually have more than half the calories than this bar. After a series of Promax bars with 20 grams of protein or less, serious athletes and people, that look for a protein shake replacement in form of solid food, now have an even higher protein option with the Promax Pro Series.
All the reviews that we looked through to get a feel of other people’s taste buds have been nothing but positive. Buyers really liked the taste, especially from the Peanut Butter Crisp flavor. They mentioned it tasted almost like a candy bar, but with a way better nutritional profile.
Buyers liked the crunchy texture of this bar due to the protein crisps. The Triple Chocolate Crisp got a little harder especially after being in the fridge, while the Peanut Butter Crisp has the perfect texture according to other testers.
Carbohydrates are pretty high, although only 14 grams of it is sugar, which is relatively low for that size of bar. We’re talking about a 90 gram bar with 28 grams of protein here. Buyers appreciated the use of stevia to lower the total amount of sugar instead of using artificial sweeteners. The amount of fiber (8 grams) is above average compared to other bars in this category. Contains Palm Kernel Oil, which is a cheaper alternative to cocoa butter.
With 28 grams of protein a bar is expected to cost more, so $3.75 at retail price does not surprise us. Protein is expensive and this bar for sure has a lot of it. One Promax Pro Series bar could easily replace a meal for some people.
