I ate two of these already, the Peanut Butter kind, which is what I found at The Wal*Marts. (NOT ALL AT ONCE, over the course of a day.)
I have not seen the vanilla variety in a store yet. I will order one for review porpoises from Netrtion or Bodybuilding, since they're sorta nummy.
"There's a whole lot to love about Premier Nutrition's new Twisted Bars! In addition to combining four delicious ingredients that include pretzel, caramel, peanuts, and nougat, covered in a creamy chocolate vanilla or peanut butter coating; the Twisted Bar is packed with 15 grams of protein! All the flavor of a salty sweet snack plus the protein you need to keep you going throughout the day! It doesn't get much better than that! Now available in Chocolate, Vanilla and Peanut Butter"
This bar fulfills two things at once - the sweet and salty cravings. This is good and bad, because, I sort of liked it, and it's not really good for me, with a roux en Y and reactive hypoglycemia, but...
The bar is a high enough protein content, with 15 grams in 46 gram size bar, but contains 13 grams of SUGAR. I would think of this as a Protein Candy Bar. Because, it is. Pretzel, caramel, peanuts, and nougat, covered in a creamy peanut butter coating.
What I have noticed about the Premier Nutrition products - they all taste pretty darn good - the most candy-like so far I would venture to say.

- Product - Premier Nutrition's Twisted Bar - Peanut Butter
- Price - $7.99/case at the link above, I paid $1.75+? at The Wal*Marts
- Pros- Tastes Super Naughty, Carb-o-liciousness, Kids love them, Baby Daddies Love Them, Cheap Find, Cheap Protein Source, Sweet and Salty Craving Fix.
- Cons - 13 grams of SUUUUUUUGAR! Not a low carb food by any stretch. A protein "cookie," basically.
- Rating - For RNY'ers? Eh. Not so much. Non-pouchworthy, even
if tasty and protein filled. For others? G'head. But, keep in mind-
there is a huge calorie punch in a small bar here, kids. But they are super yummy. So?
