MuscleFood Protein Balls, Wafers & Prutella Review

Review: MuscleFood Protein Balls, Wafers & Prutella Spread

Having spent the summer in the south of France eating baguettes, drinking wine, taking a two hour lunch, not cancelling my signal after changing lanes, working 37.5 hours a week, not wearing a veil, driving a shit French car, striking regularly, drinking UHT milk, wearing tight trousers, not wearing deodorant, drawing satirical/racially insensitive cartoons, producing terrible music, smoking gitanes, playing handball, quaffing champagne, dismissing all other cuisines, pissing in the street, swearing on the radio and generally shrugging apathetically in response to any question directed my way…

…I was left feeling somewhat bloated and stodgy.

Don’t get me wrong, I love pastry, bread, red meat, red wine and fried potatoes two to three times a day but it’s certainly not a recipe for rippling abs or a perfect v-shaped back (neither of which I have).

However, back in the UK I wanted to get some semblance of clean eating, so after ordering MuscleFood’s standard poultry, red meat, exotic meats and protein snacks, I thought I’d check out the ‘new products’ section and buy a few samples to see what’s what.

High Protein Chocolate Balls

Link: http://www.musclefood.com/chocolate-crunchy-protein-balls-10.html

Cost: £13 for 10 balls

Serving size: 46g

Nutritionals (per serving):

Calories 224.9kcal
Protein 15g
Carbs (of which sugar) 4.78g (2.6g)
Fat (of which saturates) 13.7g (8.2g)

The best way to describe these would be slightly stale Maltesers.

High Protein Chocolate Balls are derived from soy isolate with real tempered chocolate, although you could’ve fooled me.

MuscleFood High Protein Chocolate BallsThey were slightly odd taste and texture-wise, not unpleasant but there are certainly far better protein snacks out there.

You feel that maybe we should’ve just stopped at the protein bar, flapjack and brownie.

All of which MuscleFood do very well.

Each 46g bag will cost you £1.49 and delivers 15g of protein, 225 calories and only 2.6g of sugar.

There are worryingly 13.7g of fat – 8.2g of which is saturated fat – which is not dissimilar from many standard chocolate snacks.

Without the gains of course

Overall, I think unless you’re a fiend for a Malteaser then you can probably give this product a miss.

Not for the lean hearted.

White Chocolate & Raspberry Protein Wafer

Cost: £12 for 10 wafers

Serving size: 41g

Nutritionals (per serving):

Calories 197.2kcal
Protein 15g
Carbs (of which sugar) 12.92g (5.9g)
Fat (of which saturates) 9.4g (5.9g)

Now, who the honest fuck decided this product needed to be made?

Did MuscleFood really have enough correspondence that justified the outlay on R&D to satisfy the mass clamouring for a fucking protein wafer?

Musclefood White Chocolate Raspberry Protein WaferWafer isn’t even a legitimate food type, it’s a fucking accompaniment to a child’s ice cream at best.

Unbelievable.

As you may sense, I did not enjoy this product and thoroughly regret ordering it.

It tasted odd, I doubt the nutritional benefits are of much significance and I spent my mastication time wondering what sort of cunt would actually order and appreciate this concoction.

The protein race has perhaps gone a bit too far.

£1.50, 15g of protein, 0g of respect.

Prutella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Link: http://www.musclefood.com/prutella-chocolate-hazelnut-spread.html

Cost: £4.95 for a 240g tub

Serving size: 15g

Nutritionals (per serving):

Calories 39kcal
Protein 2.7g
Carbs (of which sugar) 3.99g (0.6g)
Fat (of which saturates) 1g (0.17g)

Now we’re talking.

Forget the terrible pun attempt, we can look past that.

Musclefood Prutella Chocolate Hazelnut SpreadNutella is one of the most unchallenged products in the world and while MuscleFood Prutella is certainly not going to worry the guys at Nutella, it’s a decent chocolately protein spread.

A 240g jar containing 16 servings costs £4.95 and definitely delivers.

Lovely stuff.

It tastes OK, obviously not as delicious as Nutella and its slightly grainy in texture, but if you mix it with some peanut butter and spread it onto some protein bread or a wholegrain muffin then you’ve got yourself one hell of a snack.

A great product.

Rating: 4/5

Summary

Like most of the supplement world at the moment, MuscleFood is trying to stretch the boundaries of what products can be morphed into gains.

What will I be sampling next time:

Protein carrots?

Protein salt?

Protein chairs?

Who the hell knows.

I’d honestly prefer it if we just stuck to the basics, which for MuscleFood is amazing value and great quality hunks of meat.

Yes sometimes you get a gem like Prutella, but it seems you need nine misses for every hit.

Is it really worth it?

No it isn’t.
