My first #NoBullWithMelissa review video was a pretty big hit - so I was excited to record my second video - this time reviewing some protein bars.
Protein bars can be great as a meal-replacement (the JimmyBar! says MEAL REPLACEMENT right on the label!) or as a way to supplement your protein throughout the day. There are just SO many available on the market - these are four brands I had never actually heard of before - because my FAVORITE go-to bar is the Oh Yeah! One Almond Bliss Bar. I didn't think it was fair to review something in this video that I know I love. This video was for trying NEW things.... the great beyond of protein bars.
Here's the video, and below it, the info on each product I taste-tested.
