As part of my Sweat Pink Ambassadorship, I was given the opportunity to try the Vega Sport Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bar.

For those unfamiliar with Vega, they make plant-based vegan protein products. Their sport line includes gels, shakes, and bars. Because I am particular with gels and shakes in general, I chose to review their recovery Protein Bar.
Vega sent me a box of their Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bar. Ummmm Chocolate and Peanut Butter? Yes please!
Here is a little nutritional overview of the non-GMP, gluten-free product:
- 15 g complete, multisource, plant-based protein
- 2.5 g BCAAs
- 2 g glutamine
- 1 g Omega-3
The past two weeks was hectic for me work-wise, which left little time for working out. The bars were a great source of protein for me. Even though I was in the office – I was on my feet for most of that time and expending a lot of energy. Vega said it best, it was a #workmarathon.
I also had a chance to use the Vega Protein Bar following the Brooklyn Half Marathon. I thought it was good recovery option post 13.1 miles. I never had any stomach issues after eating the bars.
I was very happy with the Vega Sport protein bars – they are easy to pack when you are on the go or traveling. They are tasty and I look forward to try their other flavors – Chocolate Coconut and Chocolate Mint as I begin my marathon training.
Have you tried Vega Sport’s Protein Bars?
