Muscle Pharm Combat Crunch protein bars

Muscle Pharm’s Combat Crunch review

When Muscle Pharm’s Combat Crunch arrived, lots of people were excited and raved about the macros and taste. These bars pack quite the punch in both departments and are a welcoming addition to the protein world. They are competing in the space of (great) low carb bars like Quest bars and ISS’ Oh Yeah Low Carb bars.

Combat Crunch macros and ingredients

MACROS

Macros are great. At just 210 calories and packing 20 grams of protein you couldn’t believe how tasty it is.

Many people say it’s like eating a candy.

Most bars that look and taste like the Combat Cruch are usually in the 300 calorie range, so it’s a welcoming addition to the world of protein bars.

If you’re familiar with Quest bars, they also have around the same amount of calories and protein. Pretty much 20g of protein is the standard with most quality bars.

INGREDIENTS

Muscle Pharm makes use of isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMO), which is prebiotic fiber. This makes the bars low on carbohydrates (although there are some conflicting views on this) and high in fiber.

This ingredient was used in Quest bars as well, although since the S’Mores, Quest Nutrition has since used “soluble corn fiber” instead.

IMO tastes sweet but doesn’t raise (much) blood sugar. The Combat Crunch bars also have maltitol, a sugar alcohol that may raise blood sugar and produce discomfort on some more sensible people. These bars are also gluten-free, although not certified.

TASTE

You can talk about macros ’till the cows come home, but if the taste doesn’t match up, we might as well eat something else.

There are currently 6 Combat Crunch flavours.

  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • Chocolate Peanut Caramel
  • Cinnamon Twist
  • White Chocolate Raspberry
  • Chocolate Brownie (exclusive to Bodybuilding.com)
  • Cookies n’ Cream

All bars taste pretty good, varying according to individual preferences and their coating. 4 of the bars are covered in chocolate, the other 2 in white chocolate.

The chocolate chip cookie, the chocolate caramel and the chocolate brownie have a chocolate coating on the outside and crunchy bits infused in the coating. The chocolate tastes great with no after taste.

The cinnamon twist and the white chocolate raspberry have a white chocolate crunchy outer shell and a meaty sweetness on the inside that makes your mouth watering just looking at it.
