Ashley's Review: The Premier Protein bars are really delicious! As far as protein bars are concerned, this is the best bar by far that actually evens out my blood sugar. Often, I feel like my blood sugar drops a little when I'm hiking for a long period of time. I know I need to replenish the calories I'm burning, so I'll eat a bar. The Premier Protein bars gave me just the right amount of energy to finish the hike. I ate it after we reached our destination (summit). My body was tired and I could tell I needed to eat something. It was the perfect balance of sweet, but not too sweet where it tasted like a candy bar. It was a nice hearty bar that filled me up enough--literally I could eat half and I was full. I drank water with it and that seemed to help distribute the protein where my body needed it most. I had a lot more energy to finish the hike. I thought the flavors were all delicious. However, I am a peanut butter-holic and that is always my go-to choice for any protein bar flavor. I thought the flavor to be very pure and natural. Nothing tasted processed. It was just plain healthy, not fattening, and good.
The shakes by Premier Protein were THE BEST shakes I've ever had. I've tried Atkins, Slim Fast, Carnation, Shakeology, Ensure, etc. None of them compare to the simple, light flavor of this brand. I love that it isn't thick and clumpy. It's smooth, rich, and creamy, but not heavy. The shake was filling and it had a nice flavor to it. I also had this shake when we arrived at the summit of our hike. It really helped bring my energy back up. After being in the sun for a long period of time, it can be very draining. The shake helped me feel less fatigued and more energized. Sometimes I get a little sick feeling after drinking a protein shake because of the heavy milk content, but this shake was nice and light that I didn't have any stomach issues. My favorite flavor was the vanilla, but the chocolate was delicious too. I liked the fullness of the shake and the calorie count! I would have liked to have tried the vanilla shake in my blender and put some frozen berries in there and have a shake, but I didn't think of it until later. :) I will definitely be drinking these again. Another thing I loved was the packaging. It makes it simple to grab and go! It's convenient and not bulky. Perfect for hiking or drinking on your way to work. I teach, so it's nice to have something that sustains me until lunch time. Great product.
