Ingredients: 8/10

The bar is gluten free, with no artificial flavours or artificial sweeteners. It uses a good protein blend consisting of whey protein isolate, milk protein isolate and calcium caseinate.

Isolates are better than Concentrates, because they have higher amount of protein, which means less carbs and fat. It also helps people who have difficulty with diary. The bar makes use of the famous IMO (Isomalto-Oligosaccharides), sometimes also listed as prebiotic fiber, tapioca fiber or chicory fiber. Notice the nice touch with the gluten free oats (more expensive than just regular oats).

Macros: 8/10

Oh Yeah Victory Oatmeal Raisin is a 65g protein bar with 200 calories, 21g of protein, 28g of carbs, of which 17g are fiber, 7g of sugar and 6g of fat, low on sodium (salt). Oh Yeah Victory bars are a clear competitor to Quest Nutrition bars, which you can easily see by its texture (more on that later). These are very fine macros for a healthy nutritious protein bar.

Taste: 7/10

The Oatmean Raisin Victory gives you a slight taste of cinnamon that mixes well with the juicy raisins and the gluten free oats and gluten free cookies. You probably won’t feel much of the oats/cookies due to the sweetness of the raisins and the other ingredients.

It tastes a bit sweeter than I thought, because it makes use of four different types of sugar, like honey, evaporated cane, sugar and agave. The prebiotic fibre used in the bar (isomalto-oligosaccharides) is a sweet syrup, and the raisins also contribute to the sweeteness so the bar may be a bit too sweet for some.

The texture is soft, but dense. It makes the bar chewy and filling, which could act as a meal replacement.

Overall: 8/10

These Oh Yeah Victory bars are perfect to throw them in your bag and take them with you wherever you go. It’s a good treat without looking like some other candy bars. They’re healthy and delicious, gluten-free, high in protein and fibre. The bar is free of sugar alcohols and articial crap.

If you’re looking to eliminate all artificial sweeteners from your life, and a protein bar that tastes good, is comparable to Quest Bars in macros and that also tastes great, then this bar is for you. While oats and raisins may not be your typical go-to flavour, I strongly suggest you give it a try but the bar might just surprise you.

Notes on old design and new design

Oh Yeah Victory old and new line

Oh Yeah! Nutrition has a number of different nutritional bars. They have the OhYeah Trail Mix, OhYeah Good Grab, OhYeah Victory, OhYeah Low Carb (Europe exclusive), OhYeah One (Low Carb clone, for the rest of the world) and of course, the original OhYeah.

The Oh Yeah Victory (older design) has 7 flavours:

  • Fudge Brownie
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • Peanut Butter Chip
  • Vanilla Almond
  • Very Berry
  • Oatmeal Raisin
  • Cookies and Cream

The Oh Yeah Victory current design also has 7 flavours, with a slight change in names:

  • Chocolate Fudge Brownie
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • Peanut Butter Chip
  • Vanilla Almond Crunch
  • Oatmeal Chocolate Chip
  • Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
  • Cookies & Créme

This review is for the Oh Yeah! Victory Oatmeal Raisin, before the current design. In March 2015, Oh Yeah Victory bars went through a visual redesign of their bars. Here’s an example of the bar I’m reviewing here, the Oatmeal Raisin compared to the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip of the current design.
The old oatmeal raisin is comparable to the oatmeal raisin cookie (green wrapper). The Oatmeal Chocolate Chip below in the brown wrapper, although not the equivalent of the Oatmeal Raisin in the picture, is a new flavour, replacing the Very Berry.

The macros and ingredients remained the same, but there are a few name changes, and you’ll notice Very Berry was discontinued (it sucked from what I’ve heard) and gave way to Oatmeal Chocolate Chip. The bar I’m reviewing here, “Oatmeal Raisin”, is the equivalent to the “Oatmeal Raisin Cookie”.

Just bear in mind that the pictures here are from the previous generation of Oh Yeah Victory bars. You can see the new/current design here.
