KC Bar: Salted Caramel & Almond Review

 Kill Cliff Protein Bars

These bars were released in 2014 from the same company that makes the Kill Cliff Recovery Drinks. Kill Cliff is a well known company in the CrossFit industry so I decided to give their bars a try. A worker at the Vitamin Shoppe told me this was their most popular flavor so I was pretty excited to try it!

Flavors: Salted Caramel & Almond, Chocolate Chip Cookie, Strawberries & Cream and Mocha Almond Brownie.

Nutrition (5/5): Almost identical to a Quest Bar (Quest doesn’t calculate it’s calories correctly so remember to look at what the product is actually composed of…) Each flavor has 20-21g of protein, 13-16g of fiber and 2-4 net carbohydrates. All of the bars contain no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no added sugar, and are gluten-free.

Texture (3/5):  A bit more taffy like than a quest bar, but it’s your average chewy nougat. I think mine was heated in the sun and then cooled because it was a little harder around the edges almost…thanks summer, you gave me a biased review.

Flavor (3/5): The flavor wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. It had little chunks of almond in it which I liked, but I wish it was more caramel flavored instead of salty caramel.

Price (3/5): For about $2.50 a bar, it’s pretty average but not ideal.


Nutrition: 5/5
Texture: 3/5
Flavor: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Recommend: Sure! Especially since I think my bar was predisposed to heat so I didn’t give them a 100% fair chance.These bars aren’t too pricey and it’s always fun to switch things up and try new things. I’ll definitely be buying the other flavors to try!

    Definitely a reasonable source of supplemental nutrition. My concern is many people substitute bars for real food. It is my opinion that this is a mistake. People need to have enough respect for themselves to provide their bodies the nutrients needed in the form of real food. Naturally this needs to be BALANCED with food choices absent of real nutrition (ex. some fast food, cakes, candy, ice cream) to expect a REALISTIC OUTCOME.

    Your postings are always filled with great information and I always look forward to reading them.

    Train hard, stay healthy, be happy!

      I agree! Nothing can replace real whole food. I use supplements like this exactly for what they are. I supplement my diet with them to help me hit my macronutrient goals with less volume so I can focus on getting in nutritious, whole foods. Thanks for reading and for your thoughtful comments 🙂
