Oh Taste Test!

4.12.2010 | My Blog, Protein Bar Taste Test

Brand: Oh Yeah! (seriously)

Flavour: Chocolate and caramel (oh yeah!)

Tag Line: Rich in natural essential fats (ummm… this is a selling point?)

First Ingredient: Peanuts

 Although I laughed at the name of this bar (and I’ll be honest, the silliness of the name nearly made me resist purchasing it), the picture on the wrapper was a very good selling point. It shows this bar looking EXACTLY like an Oh Henry! chocolate bar. No kidding. However, upon opening the wrapper, I saw that the Oh Yeah! bar looks… EXACTLY like an Oh Henry! chocolate bar. And the taste? Like the morning after Halloween, when you sneak in a bite-sized candy bar before breakfast – so wonderfully wicked. Woo hoo! Trademark infringement never tasted so good!

But, I wonder… how similar are the Brothers Oh! ? Let’s find out!

Huh. Aside from the sugar content, it’s essentially the same bar, isn’t it? Oh BOY! But really, that’s not a good thing, is it? Sadly, I’ll be leaving the Oh Yeah! Bar at Oh Base Camp! Now… after all that sugar, where did I put the celery?




Honestly.. I couldn’t tell which was the lesser evil 🙂
