I am a big Instagram user, as many of you know! I’ve made many new friends and even had the privilege of meeting some of them both here in the UK and overseas. Social networking really is incredible these days and I’m not quite sure what I’d do without it!
Having lived in America, I use it to keep in touch with friends I have out there, otherwise I’d be reliant on a good old fashion pen and paper – something I’m not at all adversed to by any means!
Now for the review…It was thanks to a couple of ladies on instagram, that I came across these RX Bars, which I have decided to do a little review on.
Firstly, they are an American brand/protein bar currently only sold online and in some Whole Foods stores dotted around the States. I had looked into buying them and having them shipped here, however the cost of the shipping was the same amount as the product, something I couldn’t justify! Luckily, one evening, my father mentioned that his colleague was visiting from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, and asked if we wanted him to bring anything over. I jumped at the chance to order some to be delivered to his house for him to bring.
A week later and ‘the family’ arrived home in my fathers backpack one evening. I was like a child in a candy shop, itching to get my hands on one!!! I had training the following day, so thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try one…and I wasn’t disappointed!
Of course, I picked the peanut butter, my favorite flavor in just about anything or eating it out of the jar with a spoon! The ingredients were 3 egg whites, 2 dates and 14 peanuts. That’s it. All natural ingredients and full of 12g of protein! The texture was very much like a Larabar, again an American product, very chewy and crunchy but not too sweet or sickly. Along with the taste and texture, the packaging is pretty impressive too. Clear description of ingredients and those all important macros, plus attractive and most importantly portable.
Overall, I was very impressed and can’t wait to try the other flavors! I don’t think they will hang around for long, thats for sure!!!
