I love protein bars. Not only are they easy to stash in your bag for a handy nibble after training or when you’re out and about or at work but for someone who, like me, has a sweet tooth and a thing for chocolate bars and the like, then it is a great way of getting your hit of protein.
In this review, I’ll be taking a look at USN Protein Delite Bar in Yoghurt, Toffee and Almond flavour.
USN Protein Delite Bar
The USN Protein Delite bar is 50g in weight and measures roughly 3.5″ in length, 1″ in width and 0.5″ in depth but is actually larger than this thanks to the nobbly construction of the bar with its yoghurt covered nuts stuck all over it. Bare in mind every bar will be different in size because of this.
The bar itself is covered in a cream coloured yoghurt coating which you can smell slightly as soon as you’ve opened the packet. The scentl kind of reminds me of Milky Bar white chocolate buttons I used to eat as a kid.
Biting into the USN Protein Delite bar, you can taste the yoghurt coating shell, which is light and crunchy, along with the nuts, then you get to the soft, chewy brown centre with toffee caramel coating which binds the yoghurt and nuts on top. Yum! The soft, chewy texture tastes absolutely delicious!
After eating the bar you’ll feel quite full and content and with its whey protein content it’s ideal for consuming straight after training (first 30 mins) to repair and aid muscle growth.

There’s so many different textures and tastes going on that your tastebuds are having a field day! With the crunchy nuts to the chewy toffee caramel and the tasty layer of yoghurt. Every inch of the USN Protein Delite Bar tastes fantastic and is such a treat to eat. It tastes so good that I’d happily eat it instead of chocolate any day of the week. I can definitely recommend it for those with a sweet tooth who like the nutty crunch.
