I’ve always been a fan of protein and energy bars when it comes to on-the-go snacks. It wasn’t until I moved to New York, though, that I realized the absolute and utter necessity of always having one on hand. Oftentimes my runaround days leave me starving, but without the time (or spare cash) to stop for food. Not to mention it doesn’t get quite more convenient that simply throwing a bar into my purse before running out the door.
That’s why I was more than happy to review Premier Protein when they offered to let me try some of their products.
First up – the shakes. I must admit that I don’t think I’ve ever actually had a protein shake, so I don’t have much to compare these too. But I was actually pretty impressed! I realized that shakes are a great option for the morning when you’re not necessarily starving yet but need to get some nutrition in. I liked the vanilla shake the best.
Next – the bars. These were great and really filling. I had one as a “snack,” but the 30 grams of protein left me with zero appetite when dinnertime rolled around. In other words, this is definitely the bar you want to have on hand if you’re having a crazy, lunch-in-between-meetings sort of day. I liked the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor best.
