Simply Protein Bars come in numerous flavors: Maple Pecan, Chocolate Caramel, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Lemon Coconut, Cinnamon Pecan, Cocoa Raspberry and Cocoa Coffee.
All flavors have very similar macronutrient profile: around 15g of protein, ~16g of carbohydrates, 4-9g of fibers, 1-3g of sugar, ~4g of fats, and 140-150kcal per 40g bar.
Bars are gluten and milk-free, with plant-based ingredients - suitable for vegans.
The main protein source is non-GMO soy protein isolate.
Simply Protein Bars have a low glycemic index. They are suitable for people being concerned about blood sugar levels for weight loss or any other reason (diabetics, for example).
Bars can be found as single bars, but more often as 15 bars box. Also, a variety pack can be purchased.
Personally, I would like these bars to have more protein sources like yellow pea isolate, brown rice isolate, hemp protein, and similar. Although these bars are small (40g), they are very filling due to fiber content - you will not feel as if you have eaten some serious meal, but you will not be hungry.
Taste - could be better. One can't compare protein bars based on milk protein, filled with sugar alcohol and sugar with vegan protein bars. But, for vegan protein bars, the taste is excellent.
Price - could be cheaper. Again, 'ordinary' protein bars are cheaper per gram and per gram of protein. For vegan protein bars, the price is good, especially the 15 box package.
Recommendation - if you are a vegan or if you need for some other reason protein bars that are low on sugar and are gluten and milk-free, consider these bars. They are great meal replacement bars, just be aware of the macronutrients in them. For a solid meal, most people need at least 2 bars. Also, they are a very convenient way of increasing protein intake before, during, and around workouts.
Keep in mind that vegan protein powders are not so convenient, but are a cheaper source of plant-based protein than vegan protein bars.
