OK. I think protein bars taste like ****. They are (to me) chalky tasting and repulsive. My GF says it's the whey in them that gives them this taste. If she is right does it mean all good for you protein powders are going to taste like ****? Thanks for any comments or input.

i don't think its the whey...its usually the crap they add to preserve them and make them "gooey" combined with the whey taste....

a lot of the protein powders for sale on here taste quite good....some like Xtreme Formulations even taste delicious...

Supreme Nutrition bars taste EXACTLY like candy bars. It seems like that company knows what they're doing

VPx is actually a nutritionally dense bar. Only one I eat now. It gets knocked for taste but I am in it for whats in it not how its tastes. I eat for fuel not pleasure.

I think of them as purposeful molecular gastronomy..

Most I've found have less protein per calorie than milk, and far less than e.g. turkey or chicken. And most also seem to have sugar alcohols in them (e.g. maltitol) that can really mess up your digestion.

These days, I prefer alternatives :)
