OFFICIAL NAME OF SNACK:
DESCRIPTION OF SNACK:
Think chocolate bar with really old nougat (or peanut butter gone bad) center.
SSI RATING (SNACK SATISFACTION INDEX - 1-10): 3 (as a normal snack) 7 (as a health bar)
As opposed to the PowerBar or Metrix bars, this is actually sweet and doesn't make me want to spit it out. Ingredients are fun to say aloud.
However, there's definitely a healthy-eating learning curve involved here. I wasn't able to finish it. It's not so much that it tastes nasty, it's just different-tasting. Like drinking your first beer. It's an acquired taste. But whereas beer has good qualities BEFORE you enjoy the taste, PR* Ironman has none.
1ST 4 INGREDIENTS:
Special Ironman Protein (huh?)
High Fructose Corn Syrup
LAST 4 INGREDIENTS:
Screams, "I'm a healthy protein bar, you fat wuss! Let me turn you into a superpower of a man!"
DO I RECOMMEND YOU TRY THIS YOURSELF? (YES/NO - EXPLAIN):
Not as a real snack. You workout folks out there, go for it.
WHICH SOUTH PARK CHARACTER WOULD LIKE IT BEST?:
Does anyone in South Park work out?
HOW CAN THE PRODUCT BE IMPROVED:
Healthy snack bars have come a long way -- and this bar keeps that 40/30/30 ratio of carbohydrates/proteins/fats, too. Still, I can't get excited until they've actually come up with a Snickers bar that's good for you but tastes exactly like a Snickers bar.
