A couple of weeks ago, I was given the super cool opportunity to try out some of Premier Protein's power bars and shakes! Being that I'm stingy and on a tight budget, I don't always like buying things, hoping I'll like them, because then I fear I won't and will be wasting my money. But to get a neat opportunity like this to able to try something, provide some feedback and then... best yet... give away a whole bunch of their goodness is even better! Right? Yes.
The first thing that got me super excited about this package was its presentation - seriously. I'm a sucker for things packed all pretty. You can't totally tell in the photo, but it was covered and nested in red nesting paper and just looked... cozy. Stoked already!
They sent me six protein bars (2 each of three flavors: Double Chocolate Crunch, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Yogurt Peanut Crunch) and 4 protein shakes (2 each of chocolate and vanilla).
Truthfully, I've never liked protein bars. Honest to goodness, I have yet to find one that I could wolf down happily every chance I get. So I was healthily cautious chowing down on these guys - off the bat, they felt heavy. Due to the higher calorie count (DCC 280, CPB 290 and YPC 290), these bars are meant to be eaten as a meal replacement or maybe to eat a half has a snack, or I suppose the whole thing if you need some major protein and carb replacement after a long and tough workout.Each bar packs 30g of protein and contains 0 trans fat. The Yogurt Peanut Crunch was my favorite; despite my love of chocolate, and based on the names, I'd assumed I'd like Double Chocolate Crunch most, but was pleasantly surprised with the yogurt ones!
The first package I received (top) was just before Premier Protein released their new packaging for the shakes (left), with the awesomely easier way to drink them without looking like a 5-year-old who made a mess of herself drinking from a sippy cup (yes, that's me). PP was nice enough to send me a new package with some of the new packaging to try out (and therefore lose the 5-year-old status). So much easier! Hooray!
Now for FIVE super lucky Run Megan Run readers (sorry, US residents only), PP is going to send them equally awesome packages, chock full of:
- 6 Premier Protein meal replacement bars: 2 bars in each flavor (Chocolate Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate Crunch and Yogurt Peanut Butter Crunch)
- 4 Premier Protein shakes: 2 shakes in each flavor (chocolate and vanilla)
- Premier Protein nylon bag
