The winner of my Promax LS bar/iTunes giftcard giveaway is…
…Michelle from The Ramblings of a Wannabe MILF!
Congratulations! WooT WooT!
Can I tell you that it’s been a hellaciously busy week?
I’ve been trying to work massive overtime this week, while finishing up my assignments for this semester. I have until the 30th to get everything done or I am suspended from Financial Aide…ACK! Luckily everything is submitted, and now I am just waiting for it to be graded or come back for revisions (which it hopefully won’t)!
Next week I am housesitting for my aunt, which will hopefully buy me a little peace and quiet, but I’m not counting on it. :/
Anywho! There is a giveaway going on in these parts, and you have up until midnight EST to comment on THIS POST! The winner will be chosen randomly, and will get two Promax LS energy bars and a $15 iTunes gift card. Awesome, right?
That’s all I got for now. Anyone have any fun weekend plans?
The following post consists of a Product Review, a Sweet Ass Contest, and a Giveaway. Neat, right?!
Disclosure: This is sponsored content and I have been paid to do this post. However, Promax did not edit this post or direct this content in any way, and the opinions expressed are 100% my own.
Now that that is out of the way, let’s begin!
Here is a quick description from the Promax website:
“Promax packs its lower sugar energy bars with 18 grams of replenishing protein, all natural ingredients, 14 grams of fiber, and great tasting flavors. Promax LS contains 40% less sugar than leading regular energy bars. That’s 9 grams sugar versus 15-21 grams in leading regular energy bars. Promax LS is also the first leading protein bar naturally sweetened with stevia, a plant with leaves that are up to 45 times sweeter than sugar and zero calories.”
I was sent both flavors to try, the Chocolate Fudge and Peanut Butter Chocolate. To be honest, I kind of wish I was sent the Promax Core flavors to review, because there are more to choose from and they all sound delicious…but I do love chocolate, and I love peanut butter, so this works as well.
My first impression when I recieved the bars was the attractive packaging, and the size! I was quickly dissapointed however, when I saw that the bars are considerably smaller than the packaging would have you believe. :/
Nutritionally speaking, they LS lines seems like a really good deal. It has about the same amount of calories (or fewer) then I’ve seen in other protein bars, while still packing in a decent amount of protein. I was really impressed by the amount of fiber in the bars though, with both varieties packing 14g (56% DV).
Flavor wise, they tasted good, but I wasn’t really overwhelmed by any sort of flavor awesomeness.
The Peanut Butter Chocolate bar DID have a very awesome peanut buttery smell when I first opened the package, and biting into it I definitely tasted the peanut butter, but the chocolate taste was a bit lacking. With the Chocolate Fudge one, the chocolate tasted a bit artificial, but that has been my experience with basically EVERY protein bar I’ve ever had. They both also had that distinct “protein bar” taste too, which I guess is from the soy protein.
Hawaii? Pretty sweet, right?!
