I mentioned a while back that Promax had sent me some bars as free samples to review and while I've gotten to some of them in reviews, I haven't really been rushing to get everything done. I don't know why, but that has been the case. Anyway, I figured today was as good as any to knock out another one of those bars, so that leads me to today's review of this Promax LS Salted Caramel Protein Bar. LS means lower sugar and this bar is also lower carb, so there's that. That also means that for a fairly large 2.01 ounce bar, this one only packs in 180 calories. Within that is a robust eighteen grams of protein, so this is "packing", so to speak. It's also gluten free and kosher, so there's some positivity.
As my photo above shows, this bar is pretty boring. It's a big, sticky, brown block of protein mix with a slight caramel smell. I guess there's some crisps on the inside that make this less of a blob, but it is primarily a blob and that's it. Not really much else to say here.
There's not much else to say on the flavor either. It has some caramel flavor, but it's not overly sweet or "burnt" flavor. As for the salted portion, I really couldn't taste but a small bit of it that only came in when I let a bit linger in my mouth. I will say that the crisps in the primary mix of the bar did add some airy crunch to this and that was a nice texture difference, but this bar still was mostly boring.
Buy It or Fly By It? I certainly appreciate freebies, but I don't appreciate being bored and since this bar did that for me, I'm going to give this a FLY BY IT rating. It certainly did not taste bad, but nothing about the flavor here did anything for me to make this bar memorable. I guess if you are just looking for something to put in your mouth and eat, this will do the trick. I look for things that bring me satisfaction though and this bar is definitely not that.
