Far flung beaches and sunny shores may not yet have been given the official thumbs-up but, thanks to Mars' latest authentic protein-packed arrivals, a familiar little hint of the exotic has come to us (and it certainly gets a firm thumbs-up over here!!); joining the ever-expanding Mars Protein range we have... BOUNTY!!
Yet another timeless-classic candy bar, the kiss of coconut (and, yep, there's real coconut in here to help stay faithful to the legendary flavour!) marries the smooth, creaminess of milk chocolate...and that's really it!! Simple and soooo effective!!
For those of you who remember, Mars did this one before (and we DO have a Bounty flapjack bar that's been around for a while now!!) and, whilst nice, I think they always knew they could do better... This time? More protein (a full 18g in this slightly modest 52g bar), more coconut and, in homage to Bounty's famous two-bite format, yep, it comes in two shareable choccy chunks!!
Our verdict? Job jobbed!! Still a very justifiable 200kcal treat and definitely a tastier, (even more) tempting outing for this coconut-crammed classic!!
But, wait, the 'taste of paradise' doesn't stop with the snack drawer!! This time Mars overdid... we have Bounty vibes for your shaker, too!!
With a smooth chocolate base, surprisingly subtle coconut notes deliver a truly 'Bounty-ful' post-workout milkshake moment, complete with real coconut milk and a full 21g protein per scoop!!
New Bounty Hi-Protein Bars and Bounty Protein Shakes are available at The Protein Pick and Mix right now!! Coconut + chocolate? OK...not a combo *everyone* goes in for but, if you tend to go a little 'coco-nutty' for Bounty and fancy trying a real McCoy Mars protein-y, macro-friendly version? Look no further!!!
