PRODUCT

CLIF BUILDER’S PROTEIN BAR

MARKS OUT OF 10

TASTE: 8 / TEXTURE: 9 / POST-RUN APPEAL: 8

Clif Builder's Protein Bar

Packed with 20g of muscle-repairing protein, this bar is easy to stomach after a tough run. It’s crispy on the inside, has a thick layer of mint chocolate on the outside (Chocolate Mint flavour) and, unlike some bars, is actually quite easy to eat.

£14.34 (pack of 12), wiggle.co.uk


PRODUCT

HERBALIFE PROTEIN BAR

MARKS OUT OF 10

TASTE: 9 / TEXTURE: 6 / POST-RUN APPEAL: 8

Herbalife Protein Bar

As tasty as they are chewy (very), these caramel-filled chocolate bars are certainly not mid-run snacks. Before and after, however, they’re spot on!

£13.65 (pack of 14), contact.herbalife.co.uk


PRODUCT

OPTIMUM NUTRITION PROTEIN OATS FLAPJACK

MARKS OUT OF 10

TASTE: 6 / TEXTURE: 6 / POST-RUN APPEAL: 7

Optimum Nutrition Protein Oats Flapjack

Designed as a convenient alternative to a protein shake, these bars are packed with 20g of protein as well as containing complex carbs from the oats. They are a weighty, dense snack
to consume but good for curing post-run hunger pangs.

£19.99 (pack of 12), onacademy.co.uk


PRODUCT

GRENADE RELOAD PROTEIN FLAPJACK

MARKS OUT OF 10

TASTE: 9 / TEXTURE: 8 / POST-RUN APPEAL: 8

Grenade Reload Protein Flapjack

Don’t let the overly macho name put you off; these bars make for a genuinely tasty post-run option, owing largely to the fact they’re ‘handmade in a local bakery’, and provide a decent 15g dose of recovery-assisting protein.

£20.28 (pack of 12), grenade.com/uk
