When it comes to sweet treats there are two things I really struggle to resist..
Chocolate & Almond
The champion? When I read that my thought process was along the lines of ‘well that’s a pretty confident title’ and when it turned up on my door step everything fell into place.
The ‘Imperius’ is a BIG eat, I don’t want to use terms such as ‘large’ or ‘man sized’ because women are also allowed to have a large appetite, I don’t subscribe to the ‘delicate little flower’ theory when it comes to eating, lifting or just general day to day life.
With all that said the ‘Imperius’ is a substantial 87g, 350+ calorie bar packed with 34g protein and can be enjoyed in two sittings if you don’t have a larger appetite or a really solid snack before a race/class/Sunday afternoon movie session. I don’t like to mention calories/energy because I don’t feel they are the be all or end all and I do genuinely think you are better to have half a ‘Imperius Bar’ than a diet bar for 100 calories any day of the week because you’ll actually feel fulfilled.
It’s important that I mention ‘Imperius’ has no gluten, no aspartame and no preservatives and best of all is the taste..
I’d describe the bar as chocolate, nutty, chewy and fulfilling; if you’re the kind of person who likes some comparisons to work with then I’d say imagine a more substantial less sickly ‘Snickers Bar’.
IronMaxx also kindly sent me some samples of their protein to try and I have to vouch for the ‘cookies and cream’ as it made the most incredible protein pancakes (I’m still obsessed by pancakes, sorry….not sorry).
So tell me have you ever tried a ‘Imperius’ before? What do you look for in a protein bar? Is it certain macro’s or flavour or brand?
Disclaimer: IronMaxx kindly sent me the bar’s to try, all opinions are honest and my own.
