Recently I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of PhD Smart Bars! Held at 1Rebel in Broadgate Circle, the morning session consisted of a hardcore leg and upper body HIIT workout lead by PhD athletes Mitchell Tovee and Vikki Thornewell. The event was a sneak peek launch of their new PhD smart bars, the first product to be unveiled from PhD’s ‘The Smart Choice’ bars and snacks range.
To say Mitchell and Vikki are fit would be a complete understatement. The class was a killer however I managed to survive and finish in one piece. After the class we had a healthy breakfast which included a speech from Jason Rickaby, MD of PhD nutrition, about the company and their new range.
Each bar (flavour depending) contains 22g of carbs, 0.4g sugar, 20g protein and 11g of fat. With only 237 calories per 64g bar, stats like that are pretty impressive for a protein bar! Making them the perfect snack if you’re watching your macronutrients (macros).
The bars come in five flavours: Choc Peanut Butter, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Brownie, Caramel Crunch and Dark Choc Raspberry.
After indulging on each of them, I instantly had a favourite. You may be surprised to discover my favourite flavour was actually Dark Choc Raspberry! I feel like I’ve cheated on my passion for peanut butter and you would think peanut butter would have been a clear winner, but the flavours in the Dark Choc Raspberry bar are amazing. It’s like something you would get in a box of Thorntons.
These tasty and nutritious bars completely exceed expectations and are certain to positively shake up the on-the-go sports nutrition market. Thanks PhD nutrition for such a great morning!
