MuscleTech Nitro Tech Crunch Protein Bar - Birthday Cake Flavor

birthday cake

 Birthday Cake flavor has excellent taste - it is both crunchy and chewy protein bar and it can't be eaten quickly, making one satiated even more.

After consuming this and other Nitro Tech protein bars, be sure to drink water - helps with hydration, helps digestion, and kills hunger even more.

MuscleTech Nitro Tech Crunch Protein Bar - Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Flavor

chocolate chip cookie dough

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough protein bar is the author's preferred Nitro Tech protein bar and highly recommended for all chocoholic athletes out there.

It is also both crunchy and chewy protein bar - when you start to eat it, chew it slowly and enjoy every single bite.

MuscleTech Nitro Tech Crunch Protein Bar - Chocolate Peanut Butter Flavor

chocolate peanut butter

Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar combines excellent taste of peanut butter and chocolate.

Perhaps, it has a little bit too 'heavy' flavor, but if you like chocolate and peanuts, you will enjoy this protein bar, too.

MuscleTech Nitro Tech Crunch Protein Bar - Cinnamon Bun Flavor

cinnamon bun

Cinnamon Bun is more chewy than crunchy protein bar. The taste is soft and not so strong, especially when compared with the Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar.

Excellent protein bar, easy on stomach even after or during physical activity like walking, running, hitchhiking, camping, etc.

MuscleTech Nitro Tech Crunch Protein Bar - Cookies & Cream Flavor

cookies and cream

Cookies & Cream protein bar will not disappoint anybody. It is both chewy and crunchy protein bar and generally tastes well.

MuscleTech Nitro Tech Crunch Protein Bar - Strawberry Cheesecake Flavor

 Strawberry Cheesecake protein bar tastes good, but after Chocolate flavors, I am not impressed too much (again I prefer chocolate flavors in general, so ...).

Fruity flavor is well combined with other flavors and making this protein bar taste somewhat different from other flavors.

Nonetheless, not even I will avoid this protein bar, on the contrary ... :)


MuscleTech Nitro Tech Crunch Protein Bars are highly recommended protein bars for people on the run that need quick and great tasting meal or snack, for breakfast or during the day. Since their main protein source is whey, they should not be used as the last meal of the day.

If you are on a low-calorie diet, these bars can be used to fight various cravings, just be aware that these bars have 24g of carbs and 240 kcal per single bar. However, they are rather low on sugar and sugar alcohol and pack 22g of protein per bar.

If you are on a Keto diet, sorry to say, but these bars can be consumed on a Keto diet only during the 'loading' phase.

Also, it can be used as a post-workout meal, to promote recovery and regeneration. These bars don't digest as fast as whey protein shakes, but they also don't provoke insulin like whey shakes.
