Back to delicious original formula!!
on August 8, 2017
[Summer 2017 review, see below for update]: The latest two boxes I purchased had a different look to them. I hoped that this was just a marketing change, but alas, the look, taste and nutritional values have changed (and not for the better). The chocolate peanut butter cup flavor used to be quite delicious with a soft center and crunchy outer coating. Now, the bar is more taffy-like without a distinct difference in textures. The flavor is muted and there is now an unpleasant aftertaste. Additionally, the bars now have 230 calories and more fat than the previous 210. I wrote to MusclePharm and they confirmed a change in formula and manufacturer. I would highly recommend that all of you who are disatisfied do the same. I will not be buying these bars again unless they return to their previous formula. Attached is a photo of the label so you can see how it has changed from the description above.

MusclePharm listened to the uproar over the change in their bars and the original formula is back! Yippeee! The Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup flavor is back to being my favorite protein bar. Amazon shipped the new bars in the order I received today. The good ones are labeled “Hybrid Series” and have 210 calories. Avoid the “ Sport Series” with 230 at all costs. I am changing my review back to a 5 star. Thanks, MusclePharm!
