Aldi Hike Protein Bar Review
Available at Aldi checkouts across the country are these new Gluten Free berry protein bars from Aldis healthy eating brand of The Foodie Market that measures just over 10cm in length and approx 2.5cm wide.
Similar in composition to many other protein bars, this one is made of compacted dates and sprinkled with flavours and ingredients like cereal crispies and berry bits. Straight away you get a strong, sweet (almost Jammie Dodger like) taste and crunchiness(from the crispies) and you almost forget about the date’s texture and tastes until way after the end. It definitely has a strong raspberry taste and really does taste like when you eat the center of a raspberry Jammie Dodger biscuit. This bar is chewy and I’m not sure these little crispie cereal bits are helpful as they get annoying as you chew and chew and they don’t give any extra flavour so… But overall this is a very sweet raspberry bar and semi-enjoyable but it just does not feel healthy at all. I really feel like I have just eaten a lot of sugar and my tastebuds feel like I have just demolished half a pack of Jammie Dodgers, I know I keep saying it but they do taste like that. Anyways, this is a low fat, high carb & protein snack at a cheap price. Its got lots of taste unlike many other similar bars but I just don’t know if I would buy it again, I’m on the fence with it at the moment.
