MuscleTech NitroTech Crunch Bars

MuscleTech NitroTech Crunch Bars

Last week I placed a MuscleTech order which included two boxes of NitroTech Crunch Bars and a tub of Vapor X5 PreWorkout. 

This is a review for the NitroTech Crunch Bars. I will also post a review of the Vapor X5 in a few days, after I have used it 4-5 times.

I like protein bars. No, I love protein bars. No… I am crazy about protein bars. I count my macros Monday through Saturday, and I’ll have one or two bars every day if I can fit them into my daily macros. I do not count macros on Sunday, and I’ll usually eat 4-5 bars then.

I had a couple NitroTech Crunch bars a while ago (I forget what flavor) and I had forgotten if I liked them or not. They were on sale last week so I bought two boxes: Chocolate Peanut Butter & Cinnamon Bun. I paid $40 for 2 boxes. There are 12 bars in each box.

I had them at room temperature, right out of the box, and I also had them microwaved. I microwaved each bar for 20 seconds, individually.

Here is some feedback, after having eaten 6 bars out of each box: the first rating is for the Chocolate Peanut Butter and the second is for the Cinnamon Bun.

TASTE: 10/10 – 10/10
Very happy with the taste. Not too strong and not too weak, either. My favorite was the Cinnamon Bun, but I liked them both.

TEXTURE: 8/10 – 9/10
The outer texture was great: soft, creamy, and tasty. The inner texture was too hard for my taste, and a bit dry. The Chocolate Peanut Butter was even harder than the Cinnamon Bun. When microwaved, the inside texture was definitely better. I ate the microwaved bars with a spoon as the outer texture melted a little bit. I liked these better microwaved than I did at room temperature. I will probably eat the rest of them microwaved.

PROFILE: 10/10 – 10/10
Quite happy with the macros on these. Great Protein content, good on calories, and won’t ruin your macros even when on a cut. I would have liked to see fewer Carbs/Sugar in there, but this is a treat after all, so it is what it is. No real issue here.

PRICE: 10/10 – 10/10
When not on sale, these are quite costly. I bought them on sale at $20/box with free shipping, so I was very happy with that price!

OVERALL: 9/10 – 9/10
Very happy with these. My only suggestion for improvement would be a softer texture inside the bar, since it isn’t always easy to microwave these, especially when on the go. Will definitely buy again when on sale and would definitely recommend to others!
