Review! – Innofoods Coconut Keto Clusters

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

Today I am reviewing Innofoods Coconut Keto Clusters.

Price: An 16oz bag can be purchased for $12.49. Each serving size is 1oz, so the cost per serving is 78 cents. A price comparison is difficult, as the closest thing I could compare this too is granola, which is made of oats usually. Oats are very inexpensive, so it really isn’t fair to compare the two. I’m going to leave at 4 stars, because 78 cents is not terrible, and this bag has lasted me a long time, however, there are slightly more affordable Keto Snacks. 4 Stars

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Taste: Oh my. The crunch, the sweet – so delicious! I really enjoy these a lot. First bite is a burst of coconut. After a few more bites, the coconut flavor settles, and you can almost taste the pecans, almonds, and pumpkin seeds. I really like coconut, so 5 stars. (If you are adverse to coconut, you may rate less, however, you probably wouldn’t have bought these, now would you? 🙂 )

Keto Friendly: One (1) ounce = 4g net carbs | 14g of fat | 3g of protein. These are a fantastic choice! I really enjoy the crunch of the nut mix and the sweet of the coconut. They meet my need for sweet, crunchy, and keep me full. I’ve found that these are a good snack for on the road. 5 Stars

Overall: I really liked these. They also made a really good “granola” topping for the Simple Truth Keto Black Raspberry Ice Cream. The helped my sweet tooth and the want of crunch. They also not only meet the Keto requirements, but are vegan and gluten free. I might just start bringing a bag to future potlucks! Also, there is only 1g of sugar alcohols added, so if you do splurge and eat the entire bag, chances are you will not have intestinal discomfort. I do wish they were a little more affordable, but, I will just keep an eye out and stock up when they are on sale! 4.5 Stars

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.

Artificial Stuff: Organic Cashews, Organic Red Palm Oil (Certified Sustainable), Organic Prebiotic Fiber (from Tapioca), Organic Chocolate Chips [Organic Cocoa Beans, Organic Soluble Fiber (from Tapioca), Organic Cocoa Butter, Monk Fruit, Natural Flavors], Organic Pea Protein, Water, Organic Baobab, Organic Vanilla Extract, Organic Sunflower Lecithin, Sea Salt, Organic Monk Fruit.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

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.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

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
