Muscle Pharm launched their own version of lower carb and high fibre in competition with Quest bars… with their multi-layer baked Combat Crunch White Chocolate Raspberry protein bar, coated in a chocolate and crunchy outher 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.

White Chocolate Raspberry macros and ingredients

Macros: 9/10

The white choc rasp only has 210 calories, comes in with 20g of protein and 12g of fiber, making it a lower carb bar. It’s a multi layer, low carb, gluten free bar with 20 grams of protein and it feels justlike you’re eating soft batch cookie.

Ingredients: 8/10

Unlike other Combat Crunch bars, salt is much lower here when compared to sodium levels of the chocolate chip cookie and the peanut butter cup (460mg). The white choc raspberry sits at 159mg like the Cinnamon Twist. There are actual freeze dried strawberries in the bar, instead of just using sweeteners and colouring.

Taste: 9/10

I can’t believe that this isn’t a candy bar. The white choc has a white/vanilla outer layer (while the choc chip cookie and PB cups have a chocolate coating) ressembling a yogurt type of white chocolate with the pink raspberry streaks. The outside tastes pretty good, it isn’t too sweet and it’s the crispie pieces in the coating that make up for most of its crunchy feeling.


Overall rating: 9/10

The cinnamon was my favourite until now. Now, if I could only buy a box I would go with the white chocolate raspberry. The pink in the bar makes it look exotic. The bar is soft, chewy and not hard or tough to eat and it smells pretty nice when you open the wrapper.

It has a great texture and doesn’t leave any aftertaste. The dried pieces of raspberry in the inner shell contrast well with the crispies in the white chocolate coaating. It manages to be very fruity like without appearing or tasting artificially like some other fruit based bars.

    If you have not tried them yet, I highly recommend a review on the Fit Elite bars by Robert Irvine. Typically I am not fond of celebrity chef endorsed products, especially food items, but I am stunned by the quality of these bars. I was looking for a Quest replacement and stumbled upon these in a small bodybuilding/nutrition shop in San Diego. With two different employees and a customer each independently recommending the Fit Elite bars to my question, “what do you have in a bar that is high protein, low to no sugar, and is NOT a Quest bar?” I had not even considered these with Robert Irvine’s mug on the packaging, but so glad they nudged me. Best tasting, best texture and filling bar I’ve ever eaten. Worth investigating. He also has a line called Fit Crunch, but with only 16g protein, they weren’t what I was looking for so can’t vouch for those.
