TOP 500 REVIEWERon March 17, 2017
Julian Bakery flat out makes my favorite protein bars, so when this popped up as a recommendation on my Amazon page, I felt pretty safe in giving it a try. I'm starting to loose track of the ones I've tried, so we'll just leave it as the only two I didn't love were their glazed donut and their coconut cream. The glazed donut I felt was too hard, and the coconut cream reminded me too much of coconut nougat candy, which I'm not really fond of. Unlike some of their bars, I actually think this one is well named. Super well named. It really does taste like a cinnamon twist roll, I was actually pleasantly surprised on that. Thumbs up, guys :)

Like all of their bars I've tried, these do have a thin sheen of oil coating them, I'm guessing to keep them from sticking to the wrapper. Easily wiped off, and I totally think it's worth putting up with because of the naturalness of the ingredients they use. I love that about their bars in general. I also love that they don't use artificial sweeteners, but rather use monk fruit, which has a glycemic index of zero and comes with zero calories. The artificial sweeteners many brands use come with a host of undesirable side effects that vary depending on the type, and some brands load their bars up with so much sugar or corn syrup it may as well be a candy bar. If you have any sort of reason medical or otherwise for wanting or needing to be careful of your sugar intakes, their products are a great choice, because monks fruit doesn't have any sort of bitter taste, and it doesn't have any of the side effects that come with the other artificial stuff.

Now since this is a vegan friendly product, it is worth noting that they do list the amino acids and the quantities on the bottom of the box and I didn't really have any problems with what I saw there, it looks like the bases are well enough covered. For me, I'm not vegan, I'm not paleo, I'm just generally a vegetarian, but I think their bars flat out rock because they're not loaded up with unnecessary crud, they use healthier sweetening alternatives, they use natural ingredients, and most of the ones I've tried taste awesome. This is honestly one of the better ones, my other two favorites though are not in their vegan line so I'm guessing they're not as relevant to you (but in case you're not strictly vegan, the sunflower butter ones and the primal thin sweet cream are also super awesome).

So I did enjoy these, would actually buy them again, and have no problem recommending them. And since I'm starting to sound like a spokeswoman for their company, I should say...I buy everything I review for my own use, I don't review free samples of anything, and I'm not in any way affiliated with anybody or anything I've ever reviewed. I just genuinely love their protein bars and think they are overall a superior product.

I've been eating the Sunflower butter bars. After reading many bad reviews on the other flavors, I was afraid to try them. So happy I overcame my apprehension and tried these. These are not as chewy as the Sunflower bars. These are soft and fluffy. The cinnamon taste is very pronounced. These are sweet. I had to look at the ingredients to ensure that I was sent the right bars and these had no sugar added. Very tasty. Yum!
Now I think I'll try others.
My only complaint is that us low carbers and people who just do not want simple sugar in their diet, must pay a high price. It's like we're being punished for trying to stay health. Oh well!

My overall favorite high protein/low carb/low calorie bar is this one with seed proteins, then Julian Bakery Primal Thin Protein bar in Sweet Cream (grassfed whey protein), then B-up Protein Bars in Red Velvet Cupcake (whey protein isolate & nuts), then Julian Bakery Paleo Protein Bar in Sunflower Butter (egg white protein---too hard though--like a tootsie roll).

1. Pegan in vanilla cinnamon twist (or roll) -- 150 calories, 1 g sugar, 3 g net carbs, 23 g fiber, 20 g protein
2. Primal Thin in sweet cream -- 130 calories, 1 g sugar, 1 g net carbs, 18 g fiber, 20 g protein
3. B-up in red velvet cupcake -- 190 calories, 5 g sugar, 7 g net carbs, 18 g fiber, 20 g protein
4. Paleo in sunflower butter -- 150 calories, 1 g sugar, 5 g net carbs, 23 g fiber, 20 g protein
5. No Cow in mint cocao chip -- 160 calories, 1 g sugar, 4 g net carbs, 19 g fiber, 20 g protein

I got these to see if they were an adequate alternative to D's No Cow Bars. They are not really. The flavor is pretty bland, and I don't require a lot of flavor. I got about halfway through my first bar and wasn't very impressed. The flavor was mostly unidentifiable. I had to look at the package again to see what the flavor was supposed to be. Then I could kind of relate what I was tasting to the database in my brain to determine if there was any commonality. It was only slight.

At about the 2/3 mark, I had lost interest in the thing. This was right after work and I was hungry, but this bar was doing nothing for me. I went ahead and consumed the rest just to get rid of it. I've got 11 more to get used to the flavor, but I'm not overly optimistic at this point. I enjoy the flavor of the No Cow Bars from D's quite a bit better. They are also easier to eat.

This is one of my favorite protein bars out there. It has the best texture of all of the Julian's Bakery bars. I actually prefer them not microwaved. The flavor is across between the filling in the Pillsbury Cinnamon Buns and sunflower seed nut butter.

I'm allergic to nuts and soy, plus I'm pre-diabetic and need to limit sugars. It's really difficult to find a protein bar that meets all these criteria. But, I found one! So, I read the reviews and ordered these, wondering how they would taste. And I like them. They have a heavy, chewy consistency which is satisfying and the cinnamon flavor is strong and really tasty. Perfect snack when I'm on the go!

I love the consistency and how dense these Pegan bars are. This particular flavor was not one of my favorite ones. I've tried their other vegan flavors, and I like them better. I won't be getting this flavor again, but the brand Pegan is one of my favorite ones!

The idea is great, and so I will probably buy it again just to support a company that aspires to produce good, clean, unadulterated food as great alternatives to addictive, junky snacks, but the consistency of this takes some getting used to. The taste is okay. "A" for effort, better than "meh."

A tasty bar. Just beware: it has enough fiber to clog a firehouse! Fortunately, my bowels can handle the load. Drink lots of h2o, or it might get stuck!

I got the vanilla cinnamon flavor after I liked the chocolate lava bars. I got them mainly for the macronutrients profile but I'm also really happy that they taste so good, not too sweet, with a full flavor and smooth texture (likely from the sunflower butter). Far superior to some other vegan protein bars and worth the higher price point. I work with all vegans so I'm going to recommend these to anyone who is looking for a great high-protein snack bar!
