I came across this cookie at the same local supermarket, from which I got the peanut butter coconut of the same brand. I got curious as I have never tried a protein cookie before. hmmm.. no, I stand corrected actually I have, only once though. I will discuss that in another future article.
And because of that first experience I have wanted to try more.
I chose Brownie flavor and I like it! Berry and Salted Caramel are the other available flavors
This is a protein cookie with high protein content with no sugar added

And of course, it is written that supplements should not be a substitute to a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
Conserve in dry places far from light.
I wasn’t a fan of these snacks before. And I have always thought it was just the same as the other snacks that I eat from the market. I didn’t know that these are really different from all of the other cookies. As it presents itself on the ingredients and nutritional value.
All of these are the main characteristics that are common between all protein or nutritional snack and supplements.
Disclaimer: I am not an expert about this subject and I still continue learning and I love that I am able to explore more ever since I have been aware of my diet and workout routine. I have written articles about various food items and I love to research and learn.
I did enjoy this cookie. But I have to be honest, I ate this a couple of times and both times I had a stomach upset. I wasn’t sure if this is the one that caused it but I suspect it is because I haven’t eaten anything new besides this. I bring this as a snack at work. So I do admit I am not sure if I will purchase this again. The tummy reaction I didn’t expect because the peanut cream butter from the same brand didn’t cause me any tummy issues.
Again, just be mindful to not exaggerate and like what is written in the package, this should not be a substitute to a good balanced diet.
If you have tried protein cookies, what is your experience?
Thank you for reading! I will see you on my next article!
