I was one of the lucky SweatPink Ambassadors chosen to review the new AMRAPBars, made by AMRAP Nutrition. The flavors I tried were Almond Honey, Fig & Cacao, and Cashew & Vanilla.
I was super excited to rip into these when the box came, if you can’t tell from the ripped edge on the top of the Cashew & Vanilla bar, before I remembered to take a picture 🙂
“AMRAP bars are:
- 100% Paleo
- clear of artificial sweeteners
Aside from CrossFitters, AMRAP bars are a highly effective source of energy for other
intense athletics. If you are a:
- Martial Artist
These bar will enhance your performance the same way it elevates the CrossFit athletes
that swear by them. They provide athletes with the whole ingredients, unprocessed
nutrients, and clean fuel to power their workouts. “
If a dense protein bar is your style, you will LOVE these. I’m not terribly picky about my protein bars, but that was the first thing I noticed – these are densely packed with good stuff!
One small thing I wasn’t a huge fan of is that they seemed a bit … greasy?? I don’t know if that is the right word, but I could definitely look past it.
Fig & Cacao
The Fig & Cacao bar was my favorite (shocking that I’d go for the chocolate one), with the Almond Honey coming in 2nd, with Cashew & Vanilla coming in 3rd.
As far as taste goes, these are really good! You can see the healthy ingredients in the bars (nuts, coconut, chocolate) and know you’re putting something good into your body.
My only personal negative about these bars is that I tend to prefer bars that are lower in calories. I think these could almost serve as a meal replacement (depending on your caloric needs), but with 12 and 15g of protein and 13 and 21g of fat (good fat!) these are a great option!
