After the really pleasant surprise the launch trio of USN's TRUST Crunch bars turned out to be, we were genuinely pretty excited to try the promising sounding new 'Cookies & Cream' flavour which all of a sudden popped up this week....guys, if you loved the first 3 flavours as much as we did? You're going to LOVE this one too...*trust* us!!
To take it back a bit, as we said when we first added these tantalising (just look at that cross-section!! They're all like this inside!!) TRUST-range of guilt-free treats to our pink, stripy shelves last December, over the years we've never looked to USN for their snacks...sure, we had a brief dalliance with the similarly low sugar Protein Delite 22 bars a while back but, aside from that? Not so much. All a bit 'meh'.
Trying the TRUST Crunch out of more morbid curiosity than anything else (we really do go out of our way here to try just about EVERYTHING that hits the market, regardless of brand...best way to judge whether goodies are worthy, whether it comes to the Mix, our money or our macros!!) we *quickly* came around...yep, forget that dalliance with Delite...we're talking a full-on TRYST with TRUST!!
Sooooo much to adore here....from the super-soft nougat centre, to the oozing and quite ridiculously slutty caramel layer (USN went to town here!!) and the creamy chocolate coating crammed full of crunchy pieces?! Daaaamn. Nothing quite like it on the market, certainly as far as the levels of caramel are concerned, either...and you know we do give serious props for a unique snack over here, folks!
It's kinda like Lion Bar crossed with a Rolo crossed with a marshamllow....and, in the case of Cookies & Cream? An Oreo, too!!
Even better? This winning format is _STILL_ low sugar (just 2g!) and 20g protein!! Irresistible.
