Nutrition content, per single 65g bar, is very similar for all flavors and it is given in the following table:
|Flavor||Protein||Total Carbs||Fiber||Sugar||Sugar Alcohol||Total Fats||Saturated Fats||Calories|
|Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough||21g||28g||20g||8g||0g||6g||1.5g||200kcal|
|Cookies & Creme||21g||27g||16g||7g||0g||7g||2.5g||200kcal|
|Peanut Butter Chip||21g||28g||20g||8g||0g||6g||1.5g||200kcal|
Main protein sources are whey protein isolate, milk protein isolate, and calcium caseinate. A protein blend like this one is great for supplying the body with a more or less constant flow of proteins for 3-4 hours - you will likely be hungry during this period, especially if you are a larger person and you are physically active, but you will not be totally depleted :)
ISS Research OhYeah! Victory Protein Bars are very high in fibers - these are mostly natural prebiotic soluble fibers from plant sources (Isomaltooligosacchrides) and they are very good for digestion and health of the digestive system.
Fats are rather low, around 6-7g per bar. Saturated fats are also very low (1.5-2.5g per bar), but these bars also contain both mono- and polyunsaturated fats in good amounts (regarding bar size and price).
Taste - taste is excellent, at least chocolate flavors, but this is very personal. Since macronutrient content among flavors is very similar, choose bars' flavors according to your preferences.
Price - price is acceptable, especially 12 bars boxes. Remember that these are 65g bars, not 85g bars. Also, don't forget that these bars don't have cheap protein sources other similar bars have.
Recommendation - highly recommended meal replacement bars for breakfasts, daily meals, and snacks. If you need an energy bar, choose cheaper bars with more sugar and other digestible carbohydrate sources. With 200kcal per bar, these bars are ideal for fighting cravings for sweets. If you have issues with blood sugar, before consuming these bars, be sure that 7-8g of sugar per bar fits your needs/requirements.
