South Beach Living Crispy Meal Replacement Bars Review

South Beach Living Meal Replacement BarsRecently, I reviewed Kraft's South Beach Living Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Meal Bar. I was rather delighted with this flavor, so I decided I needed MORE! I wanted to give the other flavors a whirl. So I tried them ALL (the things we do for the sake of a good review).

Chocolate. This bar was very good. No chemical chocolate taste here! The crisp part had a nice strong, but not overwhelming chocolate flavor and the bottom was coated in a chocolate layer that was Divine! This is great for satisfying a sweet tooth.

Chocolate Peanut Butter. This was previously reviewed and I loved it. The texture was crispy, yet not rock hard, the bottom was coated with a chocolate layer that actually tastes like real chocolate and the peanut butter flavor packed a real punch.

Caramel Peanut. I am normally geared towards anything chocolate, and with no chocolate in sight on this bar, I thought it would be sub-par. I didn't think I would like it but tried it anyway and I am so glad I did. It is my favorite! The crispy top layer was the same as the Chocolate Peanut Butter bar but the bottom was coated in a caramel layer instead of chocolate. SO yummy!

Cinnamon Creme. This one was good and a welcomed different flavor from the previous three. The crispy part had a nice cinnamon flavor that was rather sweet. The bottom was coated in a sweet creme 'icing' which reminded me of a crispy cinnamon bun - minus the guilt!

Vanilla Creme. This was my least favorite out of all the bars I tried. The crispy flavor had a subtle sweet vanilla flavor and the bottom had the same 'creme' as the cinnamon bar. This bar was good, but I tend to be drawn to more stronger flavors like peanut butter and chocolate. I am not the biggest vanilla fan.

The average South Beach Living Meal Replacement Bars is 60 grams and provides 210 calories and 19 grams of protein and only 1 gram of sugar (these bars use sugar alcohols, but not artificial sweeteners). All the flavors are pretty similar as far a nutrition goes. The Chocolate Crisp has less fat (6 grams compared to 7), the Caramel Peanut has less fiber (5 grams compared to 6) and the Cinnamon Creme has more calories (220 calories compared to 210).

These South Beach bars are high protein, low fat and sugar and high fiber. They have excellent taste and I'm now a big fan.
