    Universal Nutrition Dr. Carb Rite Bars.


    Well I talk'd to the nice people at UN headquarters and they were nice enough to send me 1 bar of each flavor of the Dr. Carb Rite Low carb bars. It was for more than just myself there was a few of us trying them out

    Choc Mint:
    6/10.

    It wasn't bad but not great. I want more mint!
    Choc Brownie:
    9/10

    This was amazing. Not too sweet had a real choc flavor
    Lemon:

    9/10

    A little tart lemon bar flavor, again no fake taste. I really like this one
    Blueberry Cheesecake:

    9.5/10

    Really did a great job with this one. It's hard to find an exotic flavor like this that taste's similar to the real thing. I love blueberries and I love these bars.
    Choc PB:
    6/10

    Fake PB taste. Not doing it for me...not as soft as the others
    Cookie Dough:

    3/10

    This one was terrible. Tasted nothing like cookie dough. It was also very hard.
    Choc Raspberry:

    6.5/10

    Theres potential here. I need a little more raspberry but I like the dark choc taste with it. Sweeten and tart up that raspberry flaor and you got a winner IMO.
    Toasted Coconut:

    12/10

    Yea that was that good! I love coconut and this taste just like a mounds candy bar, but with 18gr of protein and 2 net carbs!
    Cinnamon Roll:

    7.5/10

    This has a strong cinnamon flavor. Not so sweet. Still enjoyable.

    I'd like to add the texture of all the bars was soft. They weren't hard like the Optimum Nutrition Diet bars. UN really did a nice job with these.

    I think I once heard that Toasted Coconut was the #1 seller or something like that...

    FYI, Universal Nutrition makes their own bars, just as they make their own powders, pills, liquids, etc.

    Dang, these sound so good. Ive been looking for something to eat on the run when i cant get whole food. And being on somewhat of a low carb diet, i think i may have to take the plunge. The coconut sounds really good.

    Holy smokes they sent you alot DW.
    For anybody interested, the product description and nutrition info can be found at http://www.universalnutrition.com/st...duct.cfm?id=25 .

    The protein does come from 1st Soy Protein Isolate, then WPC. I personally stay away from Soy, but my sisters & mom are always eating the Nature Valley/Kashi/Quaker Bars. I've tried getting them to eat a few bars but they haven't been happy with them. Their main complaint is a "grainy" taste, they usually call it the sawdust taste lol.

    DW did you notice any "grainyness" in the bars?

    Those bars are more "mainstream" bars. Not specifically designe for lifters. Hey S, do you guys carry Hi Protein Bar or even Proteon?

    For the record, my fav flavor is S'mores. Though like I said before Toasted Coconut may be the #1 seller. Chocolate Mint taste like Girl Scout cookies to me...

    We don't actually carry any of UN's bars. (http://www.nutraplanet.com/manufactu...sal-nutrition/ )
    We actually have a pretty limited selection right now (http://www.nutraplanet.com/category/protein/bars/)

    If you're ever interested, let me know and I'll put you through to the right people at Corporate. I'm guessing if you're buying from a distributor, they'd be carrying 'em too.
