The Grenade Carb Killer Advent Calendar is a perfect alternative to a chocolate advent calendar for this seeking a healthier start to the holiday season and if you’re like me and have a gym obsessed other half, then this is the perfect advent calendar gift.
The calendar is jam packed with 24 full sized bars and at £50 for all of them, it is an excellent value for money. Behind each door you will find a triple layered protein bar to keep your energy levels up. Carb Killer protein bars are designed to keep your sugar cravings at bay all whilst giving you a protein shot. They can be eaten at any point throughout the day but are best had after a workout.
I had been looking at advent calendars a few months back as I like to give us all a festive treat in the lead up to Christmas. The kids usually have toy advent calendars and I usually have a beauty one but I’m always stuck at what to get my husband. He usually ends up with a chocolate one as I had never even thought of getting him a protein bar one. He was really pleased when I told him that we had been chosen to review this advent calendar as he knew he wouldn’t have to go protein bar shopping for a few weeks.
When the parcel arrived it was packaged really festively and the box was huge! It definitely takes centre place next to any other advent calendar. Obviously we couldn’t wait until December to try the calendar out, so my husband dived straight in as soon as he saw it sat on the side! He is a regular gym goer and will buy protein bars daily so he was excited to be able to have a surprise bar each day from the calendar.
“The Grenade Advent Calendar contains 24 Carb Killa Protein Bars (60g), comprising the following flavours:
Birthday Cake, Caramel Chaos, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel, Cookies & Cream, Dark Chocolate Mint, Dark Chocolate Raspberry, Fudged Up, Gingerbread, Jaffa Quake, Peanut Nutter, White Chocolate Cookie, and White Chocolate Salted Peanut.”
My husband is familiar with the Grenade bars and was really happy with the selection that was provided in the advent calendar. He liked all the flavours in the box but particularly likes the Jaffa Quake and Fudged up ones. The section seems to have quite a variety of festive flavours such as the Gingerbread and Dark Chocolate Mint, definitely flavours to get you in the Christmas mood.
Overall, this is really innovative and cool advent calendar. It’s honestly a brilliant gift for a gym bunny or even a gift for yourself if you regularly have protein bars. We were very impressed with the high quality and would rate it 5/5. I will certainly buy this in future for my husband. He was very impressed with the quality and taste of the bars and the fact he gets to stay healthy in December by having a protein bar a day instead of a chocolate bar is a bonus.
