One Protein Bar Review: Is it the One?

This One Protein Bar review is for those who continue to look for the perfect bar.

One Protein Bar Review: Is it the One?

The one perhaps?

I have tried so many protein bars - including doing a Quest Bar review and a Built Bar review.

But I couldn’t resist doing one more review.

Check out that copy on the box that I ordered from Amazon. You’ve found the one. I certainly hope so because I have been looking for years.

These bars are advertised as an “anytime dessert-level protein bar.

Dessert level. Let that sink in.

These are the popular flavors - maple gazed doughnut, almond bliss, birthday cake, and peanut butter pie.

As a fan of dessert, I was truly skeptical that a bar in a plastic wrapper that advertises 20 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugar could come close to actual dessert.

If someone handed me a One birthday cake bar and said, “Happy birthday, here is your cake!” - I might get really upset. (Where’s my cake?)

But, I know there are so many people trying to stay away from actual doughnuts and cake so these could be a good choice.

Let’s take a look at the One Peanut Butter Pie bar.

Ingredients for One Peanut Butter Pie Bar:

Protein Blend (Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate), Vegetable Glycerin, Polydextrose, Soluble Vegetable Fiber, Maltitol, Palm Kernel Oil, Isomalto-Oligosaccharides (Vegetable Source), Peanut Butter, Peanuts, Peanut Flour, Natural Flavors, Soy Lecithin (an Emulsifier), Sea Salt, Whey Protein Concentrate, Tapioca Starch, Almond Butter, Sucralose and Calcium Carbonate.

Nutrition facts for One Peanut Butter Pie Bar:

220 calories, 9 g fat, 5 g saturated fat, 23 g carbohydrates, 1.0 g sugar, 20 g protein, 8 g fiber, 140 mg sodium, 6 Green, 6 Blue, 6 Purple WW SmartPts

I want to say that the perfect snack is about 150 calories - at 220 calories and 9 grams of fat - I might as well have a cookie. But, One bar has an answer to my complaint with One minis (80 calories).

I think it is interesting to try to make a high fat, high protein bar with sucralose for those who are cutting back on sugar. My verdict is that I will keep my actual dessert but half of one of these could get me through a rough patch when I crave sugar.

I guess what I am saying is that nutritionally - these are better for you than actual dessert depending on the serving size. A square of dark chocolate would be far less calories and more satisfying in some ways.

I don’t hate One protein bars but I don’t love them. I think Built Bar with 100 calories is more like a candy bar and these are more like a cookie.

My strategy would be to cut them in half - they cost $27 for a box of 12 - and eat when I wanted to indulge in a wayward cookie or ice cream. I would not use them to replace dessert.

Have you tried Barebells? I think they're the best of the protein bars, especially the Cookies and Cream flavor but I still have a hard time replacing real food with protein bars.

I found this very good info.

For the same amount of calories, I would rather just eat a candy bar. Isn't sucralose an alcohol sugar? i get terrible digestive problems from those.

I have tried One Protein Bars. They are not low calorie, low fat or low carb. They are high in protein and taste good. They have vitamins and nutrients a body needs. Think of them as a protein nutritional bar.

You lost me at the ingredients list...MALTITOL that is the bend over dying with killer gut pain ingredient. I'll stick with the square of dark chocolate and gut pain free

Thanks for doing such a great job with reviews. I appreciate your honesty on these reviews.

Won't be trying these because of MALITOL as an ingredient. Would cause too much GI pain. I don't have a problem with sucralose.

I KNOW MY PERFECT BAR DOESN'T EXIST. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A BAR AT A REASONABLE SIZE. TASTE DELICIOUS, CALORIES 150 OR LESS, SUGAR NOT MORE THAN 7 GRAMS.

SODIUM NOT MORE THAN 100MG. MADE FROM ALL REAL INGREDIENTS. NO CRAPPY FILLERS. REAL COUNT OF PROTEIN, REAL CHOCOLATE! CAN'T BE DONE! WHY? THINK ABOUT THE REASONS? I HAVE TURN ONLY TO THE REAL FOOD. THEY CAN KEEP THEIR JUNK. PLENTY OF GOOD CHOICES AROUND. BLESSINGS OF GOOD HEALTH.

WE SHOULD START TO TAKE CONTROL. ANNETTE

I have the Peanut Butter Cup, not pie, with a cup of coffee each morning for breakfast. They do not bother my stomach & they keep me full longer than yogurt or cereal.
