A super sweet, extremely buff, and very beautiful social media @PonyTailPower recently reached out to me to see if I wanted to try some protein bars from Yup Brands. You don’t need to ask me twice!! Yes!
Yup Brands carries two types of bars: Bup Bars and BJammin Bars
They do not use corn fiber or sucralose like a lot of other bars! This gives them that wonderful soft, slightly chewy texture and zero icky after taste! They are also all gluten free.
I broke the Bup Bars into two categories:
Peanut Buttery Fun
Peanut Butter, Vanilla Peanut Butter, and PB&J
Each bar has 210 – 220 calories 9-11F 23-24C 20P
Then you have your Classic Bup Bars:
Cinnamon Roll, Chocolate Mint, Sugar Cookie, and the newest addition, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
170 – 190 calories 2-7F 25-28C 20P
Let’s taste them all!!!
Vanilla Peanut Butter – Not overly sweet. I love the slight hint of vanilla. There are also these fabulous little peanut buttery nuggets that add some nice texture and flavor.
Peanut Butter – Honestly, how can you go wrong?! Great peanut butter flavor! Again, not sickly sweet like some bars tend to be.
I decided to have a little fun with this one…
Cut into 4 pieces and bake at 350 for about 5 minutes. Cover with peanut butter!! This was a fabulous guilt free treat for any peanut butter lover!
Last member of the PB family was the wonderful PB&J
I just felt like a kid eating this bar! I love the two layers and the pretty pink color!
Now for the “Classic” flavors.
Chocolate Mint – Full of chocolate chunks!!! This was probably my least favorite, but I just generally don’t love the chocolate mint combo. If you do, you will probably really enjoy this one!! The mint flavor isn’t too strong and you gotta love the huge chunks!
This one seemed a lot softer than the others. Almost like a melt-in-your-mouth taffy.
What do you do with a Sugar Cookie bar?!
Bake it into teeny tiny sugar cookies! I just chopped up the bar into little pieces and baked at 350 for about 4 minutes.
I had a little fun with the Cinnamon Roll bar too!
Just mix a little MTS Vanilla whey with enough water to thin. Microwave the bar for 8-10 seconds and drizzle with “icing” So good!! A warm, gooey, cinnamon treat!
My favorite of all the bars was the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!
The texture is just so fabulous! Like a soft, slightly chewy, a little gooey, marshmallow-ish goodness!
And again with the chocolate chunks! I love this one chopped into tiny pieces and frozen.
Sounds a little weird, but it makes the bar last longer! This is the perfect Netflix snack.
We can’t forget about the BJammin Bars!!
These are an all natural energy bar with real fruit filling! A little higher in carbs and no added sugar.
I can’t wait to let Annabelle try these!! I feel like these would be really fun for kids.
Apple Pie A La Mode
So good warmed up for a few seconds! The fruit filling is nice and sweet and the bar is soft and chewy.
Loved the PB&J one!
With the gooey fruit filling it’s like a real PB&J with jam!
Last but not least was the Vanilla Cherry Pie
So much filling! This was probably the sweetest of the three.
The only teeny tiny problem with these bars is that they are a little sticky. Might not be the best to give your kid in the backseat of the car, but a super great snack as long as you have a wet one ready to go!! Messy food is fun anyways right?!
I would highly recommend these bars! They are great right out of the wrapper, and you can also do so much with them!! Check out Yup Brand online for more information and to order some for yourself! A box of 12 is $32.99. Plus you get free shipping no matter how much or little you spend!
