I get so excited with chocolate protein bars. I LOVE chocolate and I love a good protein bar.

I tried out the Muscletech Mission 1 Chocolate Brownie Protein bar this week. First thing I noticed was the texture. Rather then a hard bar it was more of a fudge brownie texture, which I'm actually a big fan of. I like that it has the consistency of something indulgent.
The calories and macros on this bar are pretty good. I like the high fiber content. It's good for dieting, rather then some bars that are higher calories meant for bulking.
The downside to this bar is that it's missing some flavor. The chocolate flavor isn't as prominent. I bet a bit for more of the cocoa and/or sea salt used would up the flavor a bunch. The sodium level is 180mg, sea salt/cocoa would add to this sodium level which is why I'm assuming it's not as rich in flavor.
I'd recommend this bar for someone watching calories, but not someone who is a huge chocolate fan (as I am). This bar would probably be good with a bit of Nutella spread on top, then slightly chilled to harden the Nutella and give it that brownie texture with chocolate icing. Mmmmmmm drool......
