Look, I love me a protein bar as much as the next girl, but there comes a point where you have to wonder: has science gone too far?
If I am reaching for an ice-cream bar, it means that I have already lost the battle. If I wanted something healthy, I would have gone for the plums, the dates, or the frozen grapes that wait for me in the kitchen. But I did not want something heathy and I did not reach for those things. I wanted a frozen bar of milkfat and sugar, and as a self-actualized adult, that is my right. What I do not like is the implication that I might be eating this ice-cream bar for my overall health and fitness – because frankly, I am not.
This is a frozen snickers bar: it is vanilla ice-cream topped with caramel and peanuts and wrapped in chocolate. This is inarguably delicious but its claims as a protein supplement are completely ridiculous. This bar has 7g of protein on a good day, more than your average ice-cream treat, but the same amount of chicken would be around 30g of protein (with half the calories to boot.) If you’re trying to get slim or swoll, eating an ice-cream bar is not the way to do it. And if you’re trying to have an ice-cream bar, this is a pretty mediocre one that leaves a slimy film on the inside of your mouth.
My advice? Just have your favorite ice-cream treat and enjoy it. Don’t waste your time on “healthy” ice-cream that’s not really all that healthy.
