    I hope its OK to post this, as they are not a competitor of OCUK.

    Anyway, buy one box of 12 Carb Wise protein bars (Approx £20), and get TEN boxes free.

    Cracking offer, I now have 16 boxes in the garage :D

    Well worth it for a quick snack throughout the day. The expiry date is 19th Jan 2006 but they taste fine now, and as long as they are kept cool I dont see why it would be a problem.

    Enjoy.

    Internet Rule #1 - Discounted out-of-date internet food is not a bargain...

    Remember "Best before" doesn't mean "OMG you will die if you eat me after this date". :D

    There is a difference between a "best before" date and a "sell by" date. As far as I am aware you can still sell food as long as it isn't passed it's "sell by" date.

    these look terrible for you. 9 g of fat and only 13 of protein.

    euch!

    And 200 calories per bar!

    Say hello to chubby land. Better off with turkey breasts

    Whoops that will teach me to not look at the nutritional info before ordering. That is a very poor fat to protein ratio. Still good for the money though as far as I am concerned.


    Well I would prefer it if the calorific content was higher to be honest. (From carbs & protein) Most of us are bodybuilding and eat in excess of 3500 calories a day. These sorts of bars aren't designed for those who are trying to lose weight.

    Well eating a few of these per day isn't going to make you automatically fat now is it. :p

    It depends on what the rest of your diet is like. While bulking I like to keep my fat intake to below 100 grams per day even though I am eating around 4000 or more calories. I could get in 5 of these bars a day for a total of 1000 calories and spread out my remaining 50g through my other meals. When I consider that almost everything else I eat is extremely low in fat it isn't really an issue. Although having said that, these bars contain 7g of saturated fat per bar so it's unlikely I would ever do that. Handy when i'm in a rush though. :)

    lol the facts on the site are wrong. I had a hell of alot of boxes of the chocolate raspberry crisp an it was more along the lines of 24g of protein in a bar.

    The site has been changed now, so it's buy-one get-one-free.

    Still ordered two boxes though
