Slim Fast Chocolate Crunch
Disadvantages: Only a snack for me
I got one of these free with a magazine a while back. I like cereal bars and usually have one for breakfast most of the time as they are a great way to eat breakfast on the go and I am usually always busy and running out the door and don't have time for a proper breakfast so I was happy to receive one of these as a free trial. I was excited to try it as some of the cereal bars you can get are quite high in calories and do not keep you full for very long so if a diet bar was going to taste nice and have less calories I was perhaps about to try a bar that was good for me and healthier than my usual breakfast bars.
Slim.Fast believe that losing weight should be a pleasure and that you should enjoy a variety of foods that are delicious as well as nutritionally balanced. I had never tried any slim fast products before this. I am not on a diet per say and although I need to lose some of my baby weight I am doing it with good old fashioned exercise and eating less so I wasn't really trying this bar from the point of view of using it as a meal replacement. That ultimately is what these bars are intended to do. According to the packaging Slim·FastŪ Meal Bars provide about 1/3 of your recommended intake of 22 essential vitamins and minerals, as well as protein, fibre, and essential fats. They are great meal replacement options in the Slim·FastŪ 3·2·1 Plan, so you'll have plenty of chances to try them all!
This bar was the chocolate crunch. Anything with chocolate in it is perfect for me as I am a bit of a chocoholic so I was excited to ry it. THe bar to me looked a bit like a rice crispie bar. It has a lovely layer of milk chocolate on the bottom of the bar. This layer is fairly thin, there is no thick layer or bit you can bite off but a think layer is better than no layer at all. The main part of the bar is made of rice crisps mixed together with chocolate and also interspersed with milk chocolate chip pieces too. I was quite pleased and surprised to see that there were quite a lot of chocolate chip pieces so you definitely get that nice sweet taste from the chocolate that will satisfy you if you have a chocolate craving whilst on a diet. To me this did not taste like a diet bar. Sometimes with diet bars I think you can really taste that there is less sugar or flavour but this bar was quite flavourful and tasty and large enough to make you feel like you have had a decent snack.
That is my issue with it though. I see this bar as only a snack. I don't think I could have one as a meal replacement, I can have one for breakfast but in conjunction with a banana or another piece of fruit. I don't think there is anyway I could have one of these as a full meal but then I am not following a strict weight los plan. The bar contains only 210 calories so its fairly healthy and for a nice snack great.
