Lenny and Larry's and Promax Protein Review

I was recently sent a couple kinds of protein bars to try. They both were higher in calories than the ones that I choose to eat so I had my husband try them since he is trying to gain weight and add muscle. He loved both brands!

Lenny and Larry's Review
My husband very much enjoyed the Lenny and Larry's high protein cookies and brownies. Each cookie has 15 grams of protein and over 400 calories. For someone trying to gain weight, this is good but for most people, we do not need that many calories at once. My husband described the peanut butter cookie as one of the most delicious ones that he has ever had! He ate two at once and was surprised that he was so full- haha, he just ate 800 calories worth of cookies.

Troy enjoyed the caramel walnut brownie which is also high in calories and contains 20 grams of protein.

Promax Review
I was sent a few types of products to try from Promax including Fit 'n Crisp bars, Promax Pro Series, Promax Lower Sugar and regular Promax bars. I did try the Fit 'n Crisp bars which I did not like at all. I thought that they had a very artificial flavor.

Troy loved the chocolate chip cookie dough bar which has 20 grams of protein. The Promax lower sugar bars offer you a high protein bar with little sugar. One of the lower sugar bars has 220 calories, 14 grams fiber, 18 grams protein, 7 gram fat and 7 grams sugar. These bars use whey protein and soy protein. These bars are pretty large so you could eat half of one if you are trying to watch your calories.

Have you tried any new bars lately?
