MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars
MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars are popular and tasty protein bars that come in numerous flavors. They are suitable as quick Meal Replacement Solution for breakfasts, daily snacks and similar situations. Just as other, similar quality protein bars, their macronutrient content is excellent, especially considering the fact that they are one of the 'candy-like', very addictive protein bars.
Most common flavors are: Chocolate Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, Cinnamon Twist, Cookies 'N' Cream and White Chocolate Raspberry.
As usual, I prefer chocolate flavors. Macronutrient content among flavors is very similar - for example, 63g Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough protein bar contains 20g of protein, 28g of total carbs (12g of dietary fiber, 5g of sugars and 1g of sugar alcohols), 7g of fats (4g of saturated fats, 1g of polyunsaturated fats, 0g of trans fats) and has 210 calories.
Protein sources are whey protein isolate and milk protein isolate, providing medium fast protein blend that nourish the body for 2-3 hours - assuming that 20g of protein is enough for you for 2-3 hours. After all, we are all different, so nutrient requirements differ.
Most of dietary fiber comes from Isomalto-Oligosaccharide (Prebiotic Fiber) and with ~1g of sugar alcohols (Maltitol), MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars are rather easy on the stomach.
MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars vs. Ready-to-Drink (RTD) Meal Replacements
RTDs meal replacements are great thing - one caries usually 500ml bottle around, and when meal is required, just shake it and drink it and that is all. And most of the RTDs I have personally tried taste like chocolate milkshake - very tasty for chocoholic gym like myself.
However, when MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars and similar protein bars are consumed, one has to chew them, and I find it very pleasing and satisfying. Don't get me wrong, but being a human, eating food for me is not just satisfying my nutrients' needs, but also satisfying my taste buds and my mind.
So, protein bars vs RTD drinks? My vote goes to protein bars :)
MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars recommendation - for occasional treat and meal replacement, highly recommended. 12 bars package comes at acceptable price, per single bar. Being on a diet or not, if you in a hurry constantly and you don't have time to prepare and enjoy cooked meals and don't even have time to carry MRP powders and shakers around, try MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars, they will provide you with enough macros and energy that will last you for 2-3 hours and help you avoid fast food restaurants and similar.
