BUILT BARS REVIEW
SEE MY UPDATED 2020 REVIEW OF ALL THE NEW FLAVOURS HERE: HONEST BUILT BARS REVIEW 2020
UPDATED DISCOUNT CODE: SAM10OFF
I don't even know where to begin with this post.
I literally am so in love with these bars and the company, it's hard to put it into words.
(I am not being paid to say this BY THE WAY).
Built Bars is a relatively new company to hit the market but they truly took it by storm.
I've consistently been impressed by their advertising, branding and above-all, their FANTASTIC customer service.
(As a small company owner myself, I KNOW how hard it can be to balance all of this as eloquently as they have).
They really do appreciate you're feedback.
Their shipments arrive quickly (even for someone like me in Canada!)
You receive a custom message thanking you for your order, which I think is so sweet!
Each order (as of current, November 2019) contains a sample pack of a natural energy drink with several different flavours.
You also receive a 20% off coupon for your next purchase…along with of course, you're beautifully packaged bars!
Each bar has AMAZING macros with: 110 calories | 15g protein | 6g fiber | 4g sugar | 4g fat | 5g NET carbs
Currently Built Bars has ~15 flavours (don't quote me on this) These include:
- Coconut Almond
- Peanut Butter
- Coconut Chocolate Creme
- Vanilla Chocolate Creme
- Mint Brownie Delite
- Double Chocolate Mousse
- Black Cherry Chocolate Creme
- Orange Chocolate Creme
- Salted Caramel Chocolate
- Banana Chocolate Creme
- Raspberry Chocolate Creme
- Pumpkin Pie
- Mocha Chocolate Creme
- Strawberry Chocolate Creme
- Lemon Chocolate Creme
So far I've tried 9 / 15 flavours….But you bet your bottom I'm going to be ordering the rest! ESPECIALLY the Coconut Almond…which sounds delicious.
But for now, I'd like to review and rank the bars I have had!
The overall texture of all of the bars is the same for each flavour, it's a delicious REAL chocolate thin coating, (think like a dipped ice cream cone type of coating) with a chewy marshmallow/taffy-like centre.
NOW if you don't like marshmallows or taffy…DO NOT IMMEDIATELY PASS ON THESE BARS.
I don't like marshmallow candies or treats but I LOVE these bars.
The texture is hard to explain but it's great. Just trust me.
So with that out of the way, let's get going with the flavour rankings!
(Remember these are just my personal choices!)
I'm going to rank from my least favourite to my absolute OMG I LOVE THESE THINGS favourite.
Built Bars Review
9. Black Cherry Chocolate Creme
Alright, so yes, I've starting with Chocolate Cherry..does this mean this bar is terrible?
NO. NOT AT ALL. I would still eat this bar above a TON of other protein bars (and that's saying a lot seeing as I work for a supplement company part-time and taste new protein bars constantly).
If you are a lover of the chocolate cherry combo, then I'm sure you will enjoy this bar!
The ONLY reason I didn't is because as a child I used to always take these cherry cough drops every time I was sick and this bar's aftertaste reminded me of them a bit too much..haha.
8. Orange Chocolate Creme
AGAIN. Such a personal thing. I've just never liked the combination of orange and chocolate..but I know people who love it.
If you like those Terry's Chocolate Oranges then you will like this bar.
7. Salted Caramel Creme
Okay, let's get this straight..
I have nothing against caramel (AT ALL) or this bar in-fact.
I really just enjoyed it less than I did others so it got ranked lower.
If I'd tried this on it's own before all of the other flavours I'm sure I'd be impressed! It's just tough when it's stacked up against so many great competitors.
This bar has almost a slight coffee-like flavour to me. It's definitely not bad and I would eat it again!
6. Vanilla Chocolate Creme
AGAIN. I hate ranking this one lower because I STILL LOVE IT. I could eat these daily.
I just preferred some of the other flavours more..but I like to throw a few of these into the mix now and then because they are a nice change!
The Vanilla flavour is subtle and you mainly taste the chocolate..it's like a lighter version of the Double Chocolate Mousse Bar. Very tasty.
5. Raspberry Chocolate Creme
This one was a nice surprise to me! Normally I'm not a big fruity flavours with my chocolate kinda girl but I don't mind raspberry and chocolate.
So when I tried this bar I was pleasantly surprised. You can definitely taste the raspberry, but it doesn't over-power the chocolate. It's not artificial tasting at all. Very good!!
4. Banana Chocolate Creme
I hold a special place in my heart for this bar. LOL. This is the bar that started it all.
I was lucky enough to be offered one by a coworker and enjoyed it so much I decided to order some bars for myself!
The reason I love this bar SO much is the fact that it doesn't taste like gross artificial banana! It actually tastes like REAL banana.
This is so hard to find in the supplement industry.
I love banana bread, banana muffins, bananas themselves.. but I never loved banana flavoured bars/proteins. But this bar has proven to be different.
3. Double Chocolate Mousse
This one is in my TOP 3 (aka the flavours I am addicted to and cannot stop ordering).
This bar is every girls “OMG I AM CRAVING EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW” saviour.
It's rich, chocolatey, creamy..dense… UGH. I want one now. LOL.
If you are craving chocolate, this bar definiteeeeely hits the spot.
2. Mint Chocolate Creme
Just like the previous bar, I have to stop myself from wanting to eat the whole box.
These are delicious.
If you like the combo of mint and chocolate then enough said, you will LOVE these.
Just amazing. Chewy, Chocolatey, Minty, Gooey…AMAZING.
1. Coconut Chocolate Creme
And here we have my “I HAVE TO KEEP THESE OUT OF SIGHT FOR I WILL INHALE THEM IN MINUTES” bar.
This bar is everything and anything I could have dreamed of…
The cracking of the chocolate coating..as you bite into the sweet chewy coconut centre..
I wish I could describe in words how much I'm actually drooling at the thought of this bar right now, LOL. It's that good.
But anyways, here you have it! My rankings of Built Bars aka The BEST Low Carb Protein Bars EVER.
As I mentioned, this is not an ad. It's just my straight-up honest opinion of a company I think is doing a bang-up job.
They deserve all the recognition they can get.
