Review! – BHU KETO Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bar

Note: I am not affiliated with any links. I make no money off of purchases. Just linking for clarity! UPDATED 12/11/2020

Today I am reviewing BHU Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars. I purchased mine in the refrigerated section of Target, however it looks like you can purchase large containers from BHU directly, as well as these sized bars in different flavors. However today specifically is the chocolate chip cookie dough flavor.

Price: I purchased these for $2.99 at my local Target. You can purchase Quest Bars for about $2.16 each. The BHU Keto bars are 1.6oz ($1.35oz), vs the Quest Bars at 2.12oz. There appears to be no discount purchasing these from the website directly price wise. You can purchase from the website in a 9oz tub for $14.99 ($1.66oz), so, that is an even worse deal. That is why I am giving it one star.

Rating: 1 out of 5.

Taste: The flavor on these was meh. They had the gritty taste of many things such as this that are “healthy”. The consistency was just not that good to me. I think I would have liked them had I never had a different brand. I tried to microwave for a few seconds to give them a chance to be a yummy melted cookie, but alas, even warming them up was not helpful. Even if microwaving them helped however, this would eliminate the convenience factor.

Keto Friendly: One (1) protein bar = 4g net carbs | 15g of fat |11g of protein. The macro’s are pretty good. The large amount of protein would be great if you work out and need more protein. They are very filling, however I needed a little bit of milk after, so that kind of negated the low carb aspect of these – ha! I do also like that they have some potassium, as this is one macro I do struggle to get.

Overall: I am not a fan of the flavor of these, nor the price. They are good for vegan’s looking for more protein, but there are so many better options out there. I do not recommend.

Update: I left a link to this review on Facebook with BHU and got a response:

“Hi Jessica, thank you for your review of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Keto Bar. I would like to clarify your listing of the Cookie Dough in a Jar and the price per oz. It is a different product with a different formula, so readers of your review might be a little misled. Also, the keto bars are meant to be refrigerated and kept at a cool to moderate temperature, therefore, by microwaving the bar it is definitely not in its ideal form. I see you were not entirely pleased with the bar. I hope you will give some of our other products a try sometime 🙂 Hope you have a pleasant day.”

I do plan on purchasing the other products of theirs to try – and I will review them as I do! -Jessica
