Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites Cookies & Creme Review
Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites Review, In Cookies & Creme Flavor
Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites now comes in Cookies & Creme. Its enjoyable, chewy texture with a Cookies & Cream flavored “icing” coating that even has tiny chocolate pieces sprinkled across small cake-shaped pieces makes these cake bites to die for! With three mini-cakes per sleeve, Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites make portion control easier than with a traditional bar. If you just need a small shot of sweetness to curb a craving, or only have a few macros to fill, you can easily limit yourself to just one bite with Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites and save the others for another treat. Ah, who are you kidding? You’ll eat all three like we did because they taste too good to say no to.
A complete serving (which includes all three mini Protein Cake Bites) of Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites Cookies & Creme yields 20 grams of protein, 7 grams of fat, and 25 grams of carbs for a total of 210 calories—pretty stellar macros for a sweet snack! Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites contain a blend of whey isolate, milk concentrates, and milk isolate proteins, and are gluten free.
In contrast to many traditional protein bars on the market, Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites don’t contain a large quantity of fibre (actually, they have no fibre). This can be a bonus for many people who have experienced digestive upset after eating a protein bar. For many people, consuming of 15 (or more) grams of fibre in one sitting can tax the digestive system, resulting in bloating and discomfort.
Optimum Nutrition Cake Bite in Cookies & Creme Have Five-Star Taste
Our dedicated team of taste testers rose to the challenge of taste-testing the Protein Cake Bites in Cookies & Creme. The new addition did not disappoint!
The Protein Cake Bites live up to the “deliciously whipped protein snack” statement on the wrapper. The inner portion, the “cake,” is a soft and pleasantly chewy texture that definitely matches the whipped description. The yogurt flavoured coating provides a contrasting texture, giving the Bites a little bit of a crunch from the coating itself as well as the actual cookie crumbs. The flavour perfectly matches Optimum Nutrition’s other Cookies & Creme products, with just a hint of cocoa mixed into the creamy, sweet taste. Talk about a filling snack!
Optimum Nutrition Fans Voted Cookies & Cream Protein Cake Bites
Early in 2018, Optimum Nutrition turned to social media to gather feedback on future Protein Cake Bites flavors that consumers wanted to see. What started with eight different options was quickly narrowed down to two: Peanut Butter & Cookies, and Cookies & Creme. The final vote came in with Cookies & Cream tipping the scales, to which the company cryptically stated, “This isn’t the last we’ll see of this flavour.” Well, here we go! Optimum has listened to the people and now both Protein Cake Bites and Protein Almonds are available in this winning flavour.
Optimum Nutrition Cookies & Creme Takeover
Obviously, Optimum Nutrition knows a good thing when it sees one, and Cookies & Creme is just that. With such a wide variety of supplement products, Optimum has done a terrific job of maintaining continuity with its flavors. With these two additional products, you can now find seemingly endless Cookies & Creme options. From the Gold Standard Whey to Hydro Whey, Casein, and even Serious Mass, it’s clear that Cookies & Creme is taking over, and we’re totally on board with that.
Protein Snacks On The Rise
Protein-based snacks are on the rise. Bars, cookies, chips, and even gummy candies can be found on supplement store shelves everywhere, and are being purchased as quickly as companies can produce them. Snacking on protein is a smart choice as it can help you feel fuller for longer and sustains energy levels without a rapid spike in blood sugar, avoiding a big crash in energy hours later. These protein snacks fill a void in the snack market, giving people something else to reach for beyond the basic high sugar and fat choices.
Ready, Set, Snack with Optimum Nutrition
Optimum’s line of protein snacks includes Protein Cake Bites and Protein Almonds, which are Optimum’s spin on the classic protein bar—both of which currently come in a wide variety of flavors and Optimum is never done delivering high-quality options, especially when it comes to meeting customers’ requests.
We’re pretty sure our taste testers swiped extra packs of these Optimum Nutrition Cookies & Creme Cake Bites on their way out the door, and we can’t blame them. A quick scan of many popular online supplement stores shows the Cookies & Creme option sells out fast! Optimum’s new addition to its family fit in perfectly and provides another great flavor option for snack-lovers everywhere. With snack options like these, it’s entirely possible to have your cake and eat it too … literally. So, if you find them in stock, grab them while you can!
More About Optimum Nutrition
Optimum Nutrition is one of the most recognizable sports supplement brands in the world. Its flagship products, Gold Standard Whey and AmiN.O. Energy, have developed a cult like following among serious athletes for many years. But Optimum Nutrition is hardly just a protein and amino acid company—far from it. In the last two years, Optimum has innovated outside of what we typically see from the brand by getting into vegetarian protein with its Gold Standard Plant Protein, Greek Yogurt Protein Smoothies, and even diet products (Opti-Fit and Daily Fit). But what’s been a complete game changer has been Optimum’s domination in the on-the-go nutrition category. Optimum has launched hit after hit of convenient, delicious high-protein snacks, such as the award-winning Protein Almonds, AmiN.O. Energy Ready to Drinks (RTDs), Protein Wafers, Protein Crisp Bars, and, of course, the legendary Protein Cake Bites.
