Ratings

To help you find the products that are right for you we've created a simple ratings system. We've rated our products across a number of key areas, so you can easily check if they fit your preferences.
 
It's true that some of these ratings are a little subjective, for example what's very sweet to one person may be less so for another. With that said, we've been lucky enough to try hundreds of different protein snacks, so we are able to rate products far more objectively than the average person could.
 
CALORIES / 1G PROTEIN RATIO
How many calories there are in the product per gram of protein. At the lowest levels you can find protein bars which contain under 10 calories for each gram of protein. If calories are one of your main concerns, this is a great way to filter for leaner, lower calorie snacks.
 
SOFTNESS
Pretty self explanatory - how soft or firm a product is to bite into.
 
CHEWINESS
Most protein products are at least a little chewy, as manufacturers have yet to figure out how to make that soft, whipped texture that's still packed with protein.
 
SWEETNESS
Most protein snacks are designed to be treats, so are quite sweet. But a few are very sweet, while some (usually mint or coffee flavours) let the sweetness take more of a backseat.
 
CRUNCHIES / CHUNKS
A few protein bars these days still have a smooth, uniform texture. But it's much more common for them to be jazzed up with crunchy balls, chocolate chips, peanut chunks etc. to give them some texture and bite.
 
FILLING (SATIETY)
Protein is naturally quite a filling macronutrient, so you can expect protein bars to fill you up more than a sugary or carby snack. But some products are more filling than others.
