ISS Oh Yeah Good Grab — Chocolate and Caramel

On December 28, 2009, in Protein, Reviews, by Andrea

A few weeks ago, I won a contest from ISS and part of the winnings was this bar.

Good Grab Chocolate and Caramel

The OhYeah! Good Grab bar is just like the original, only smaller. It’s not a less powerful, so-called “lite” version, but rather a smaller, portion-controlled version modeled after the original trusted recipe. The OhYeah! Good Grab bar combines maximum indulgent taste with pure hunger satisfaction. At just 190 calories, 15 grams of premium protein and only 4-5 grams of sugar, OhYeah! Good Grab is just the right size for calorie-conscious consumers. Simply put, it’s smarter snacking made simple.

Mmm.. chocolate

So I look at this bar and while it’s small, it looks.. well.. real.  I like that.  It looks like something hubs would eat — something that a normal person with normal guts would be nibbling on rather than someone with designer guts.  And opening it up inside even looks great, too!

Chocolate, caramel, and peanuts..

It’s good.  It’s “I’m eating a real live candy bar for normal people” good.  So the stats have to reflect that.

So for this real taste, I only have to count 6 carbs?  AND 15g protein?  Win, SHINY HAPPY WIN.

I will tell you that for many postops, it has the evil sugar alcohol malitol in it — and while it tastes great and does nothing to me, it does cause many people horrible discomfort.  So if you have issues with malitol, then please be aware that this is an ingredient in this bar.

So yes, this is a great find.  Great job, ISS Research!

Available at various places online — 12 bars for about $15

    I love the Oh Yeah Good Grab bars! Perhaps I like them a little too much, because I have to limit myself to just 1 or 2 a day. Sometimes it’s hard because they taste sooooo good!!!
