Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup interior/exterior

Muscle Pharm launched their own version of lower carb and high fibre in competition with Quest bars… with their multi-layer baked Combat Crunch Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup protein bar, coated in a chocolate and crunchy outer shell. Packing 20g of protein in 210 calories, 12g of fibre, low in sugar, gluten free and active carbs in a soft baked texture, Muscle Pharm gives us a great tasting alternative and addition to the low-carb protein bar crowd.

Combat Crunch macros and ingredients

Macros: 9/10

It’s hard to believe that such a candy-like bar only has 210 calories, with 20g of protein and 12g of fiber, making it a lower carb bar, competing with the likes of Quest bars and Oh Yeah low carb.

Ingredients: 8/10

A glance at the ingredients tells you it isn’t like the “clean” protein bars like Quest, but it has a great nutritional profile, a soft, yummy texture with the chocolate coating that distinguishes it from the rest and gives it its signature. The bar is a bit high on sodium though.

Taste: 7.5/10

The “crunch” in the outer shell is made of embedded cookie pieces. When you take a bite in its crunchy chocolate shell and reach the taffy-soft peanut centre, melting in your mouth, you begin to understand how the combination is great. The soft-baked nature of the bar means that you won’t have a jaw workout each time you chew one.

Overall rating: 8/10

Good macros, taste and reasonable list of ingredients. There isn’t as much contrast between the coating and the inside as in the chocolate chip, but it’s this merging between crunching the chocolate crispy shell and then chewing the soft peanut inside that makes me like this bar more than the chocolate chip bar.
