ProBar Core: 29g Protein Bar Review

I have a new bar to share with you guys!

I know what you're thinking. With all the bars I eat, how is there a new one to share?

But there is.

ProBar Core is a new line of plant-based protein bars from ProBar. With 20g of protein per bar, as well as heart-healthy chia seeds, this bar is perfect for athletes. And busy college students like me!

Seriously, sometimes hoofing it to lab after waking up late makes me feel like a pro athlete, too. I've shaved off 2 minutes and 47 seconds since the beginning of the semester.

*Shameless bragging, followed by conceited cabbage patching*

There are four flavors of ProBar Core bars. And it's like they're made for me - and all other chocoholics out there! There's Brownie Crisp, Cookie Dough, Mint Chocolate, and Peanut Butter Chocolate. They're all winning flavors, especially because they actually taste like those flavors and don't have that icky, chalky taste that some bars can have. 

You won't believe that these are healthy for you, but there are about 300mg of Omega 3 fatty acids per bar and about 500mg of Omega 6 fatty acids. 

The bars aren't exactly light on sugar (there's around 15g of sugar per bar) but they also have a good amount of fiber (and all that plant protein!) so you don't have to be too concerned about that sugar hitting your bloodstream too fast and leaving you sugar whacked-out after an hour. Further, the sugars are all pretty healthy and minimally refined, with nothing like corn syrup appearing in the bars. 

They also have around (slightly less than) 300 calories per bar, so they're substantial enough to pair with just a yogurt and banana for a quickie lunch if you're crazy busy. They're also pretty big bars, and quite dense, so they are nice and satisfying. 

Overall, I quite like them!

How often do you eat bars?

What do you look for in a bar?

Do you know of any bars that I haven't tried yet?


  1. I eat bars every single day (no shame!) I just love them and they're soooo convenient! I've never heard of these but they look delicious- especially the cookie dough flavor!

  2. I don't know if you've reviewed the new Vega One bars yet, but those are my current favorite protein bar! I just like that they have clean ingredients like in the Vega One protein powder, plus they're supplemented with greens. Plus I prefer non-soy based bars as I get a lot of soy through tofu and edamame, so I'd rather not have a soy overload! But I gotta say, the flavors of these bars sound incredible.

  3. Thanks for your information. I found it helpful.recently i bought a protein bar came with combo pack and its very nice to have it. you can also try it once


Please say hello, leave your comments, or answer my questions! It makes me smile when you leave me a note :) I read every single one of them and it makes my day when you guys say hi!
