When I first opened the Millionaires Shortcake protein, I got this amazing biscuit-like smell and I couldn’t wait to try it. The whey protein powder mixes well with water and worked well in porridge oats. I enjoyed the taste of this protein and I’m definitely going to have it again. I wouldn’t say it tastes exactly like millionaires shortbread as how can you in a protein powder but it does come pretty close – more biscuit like in my opinion. Overall, I would give the Millionaires Shortcake protein a 8/10. The Millionaires Shortcake Pure Whey Protein Concentrate 80 is available from the Bodybuilding Warehouse website here.

I thought that the Chocolate Chunk Premium Lux Protein Flapjacks would be more like flapjacks but they definitely tend more forwards the protein bar side of things. They have a nice texture – soft, not horrifically chewy and dry like some bars I’ve tried. I was a bit disappointed after all the hype I have seen on Instagram. I thought that the taste of stevia was quite overpowering. The flapjacks did taste a lot nicer when heated in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. I think that if you like Quest bar and other similar brands then you will probably love these but personally, they are not for me -sorry guys! Overall, I would give these a 4/10 as the texture is good and they contain a decent amount of protein. I gave my boyfriend one of the flapjacks to try and he absolutely loved it. He agreed that it wasn’t like a flapjack but he thought it resembled a fudge-y brownie. When I asked him to rate it out of 10, he gave the bars 10/10, saying that if I gave him a 100 then he’d eat all 100 of them so I guess it’s down to personal preference!
