Trek Chocolate Flapjack Taste

We went ahead and bought a pack of 16 bars from Amazon UK for this review. If you’re looking to get hold of some, this is where we would recommend buying them from.

They arrived the next day, and our hungry vegans got stuck in! Now remember, we’ve bought and tried a LOT of vegan protein bars in our time, so you’re getting a real comparison review of the taste here. If we feel there’s a better product in a similar price bracket, we’ll tell it like it is.

We found the overall taste to be exactly what you’d expect – flapjack-y and chocolately. Very, very nice indeed. The cocoa and oat combination was always going to be a winner, and the Trek Cocoa Oat Protein Flapjack is no different – absolutely delicious. Possibly a little on the sweet side for certain tastes, but I have no issue with that and it’s not an overpowering sweetness.

The bars are super chewy, not too crumbly, with a nice moist texture and balanced flavour. You’d think they had slipped some gluten in there to get them this chewy, but nope! Completely gluten-free, these Trek Chocolate Flapjacks are perfect for gluten-sensitive vegans and coeliacs.

Word of warning – these little guys are very addictive. With one bar having 227kcal, it’s very easy to finish one and immediately start eyeing up the next one. We recommend taking one or two with you and keeping the rest in the cupboard so the box isn’t staring at you all day!

We found that we were using them as a breakfast replacement on days when we had to rush out to the office. They kept us going through until lunch, so they’re great for keeping those hunger cravings at bay.

Protein is decent for the Trek cocoa oat bar, sitting at almost 10g ber bar, giving you a nice little boost of protein for a pre or post-workout snack.

Cost

RRP for the Trek Cocoa Oat Protein Flapjack stands at arounf £16.80, which equates to about £1 per flapjack which isn’t too bad. A lot of places charge anywhere between £1-£2 for similar products, so Treks flapjacks are good value for money.

If you’re seeing them on Amazon UK for anything less than that, then you should definitely jump on the chance to get them at the lower price. At time of review, they were heavily reduced, down to just £8.13 for a box of 16 bars – incredible value!
