Thought MusclePharm only had the Combat Crunch Bar…think again! At the Arnold, yes the Arnold, MusclePharm reviled the new protein bar called the Arnold Muscle Bar. Going off the Arnold brand, this is the new protein bar with Arnold’s name on it. Now the Combat Crunch Bar is probably the closest thing to Quest Bars, which have been number 1 in the industry for over 2-3 years now. So why come out with another bar?
What Makes the Arnold Muscle Bar so Good?
Well we would hope that Arnold had some input into the bar. You know that he has been in the industry so long and has probably tried all sorts of protein bars. It has the name, but does it have the taste and the quality of other bars out there?
This is usually the most important thing when it comes to protein bars. So does the Arnold Muscle Bar have what it takes to be healthy and actually taste good? The flavors that they are coming out with first, well on April 1st are:
- Frosted Cinnamon Bun (sounds the best!)
- Chocolate Brownie
- Chocolate Peanut Butter
I am sure that more flavors of the Muscle Bar will be coming out too.
Benefits and Ingredients in the Bar
So let’s look at the ingredient profile. I mean this better not be like eating a Snickers or something.
- 30 Grams of Protein (That’s more than most bars. For example Quest Bars only have 20 grams)
- 16 Grams of Fat
- 370 Calories (Now this is a big amount. This makes this almost more of a meal replacement bar than a protein bar)
- Whey Protein Isolate & Whey Protein Concentrate (No soy which is nice!)
- 30 Grams of Carbohydrates
Now I haven’t tried this new Muscle Bar yet, but looking at the ingredients, it would be for those looking to replacement a meal with it, or good if you are bulking. Whereas a Quest Bar is good for staying lean or dieting or a snack, this is for those looking to build mass or wanting to stay “leaner” by eating one of these instead of a meal. Once I try one of these, look for an in-depth review on it.
