Today’s Keto Krate Week review is another battle of the bars…..but one’s a bar of meat?
It’s meat and it’s in the shape of a bar so why wouldn’t they have just named it Meat Bar? Nope…they went with Grass Fed Beef uncured Bacon Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper Bar- admit it- their choice isn’t as catchy as meat bar- and you KNOW IT
I can honestly so I’ve never had a beef stick/bar type thing that was beef but bacon flavored – I mean, does that go against nature?
The bar was created by a company called DNX and they nailed it – the taste was amazing and texture was great- and that is what I look for in these types of snacks. I wouldn’t call it beef jerky, most of the time jerky is just “too jerky” – it really is just a bar of beef and it was perfect.
I was thinking this would be one of those items that claim to be keto but don’t really fit due to lack of fat but I was pleasantly surprised- 120 calories, 10g fat, 0g net carb and 11g protein! Now, the site says its 1g net carb but when you look at the package it has 1g carb with 1g fiber and that should equal zero net carbs so I’m not sure what is going on there.
But something instantly jumped out at me when I checked out their website – www.dnxbar.com – they have a Grass Fed Beef Sweet Potato Pecan Bar….what the hell is going on in this world- these guys are changing up the meat bar game!
The bar was delicious and I hope to get to try a few more flavors in the future- big fan!
You can pick up a 12 pack of these meat bars- even a variety pack- for $33.99 which is only $2.85 each and that is a damn fine deal.
The next bar is not made of meat but it was equally as good- the Munk Pack Keto Granola Bar- Peanut Butter flavor.
I’ve tried a lot of peanut flavored bars since starting keto and this one was honestly different- usually they are that play-dough type stuff or just have terrible texture but this one was more like a trail mix bar- probably because it’s considered a granola bar.
But granola isn’t really keto so I was a bit confused- I headed to their site – www.munkpack.com – to figure out what was going on.
Now I’m even more confused, looks like it’s all nuts and seeds and there isn’t granola in it – so I’m not sure why it’s called the- more like a trail mix bar – but it’s delicious. I would think by putting granola on the package, it would scare keto folks away honestly.
They use a sugar alcohol called Allulose that I know NOTHING about but they say the bar has 2g net carbs because they are removing the fiber, Allulose and Glycerin and it has 140 calories, 12g fat, 5g protein so it looks to be perfect keto with all that healthy fat in there- I do need to do some research on Allulose though; they say it’s a “sweetener found naturally in small amounts in maple syrup, figs and raisins” and that it has virtually no impact on blood sugar and insulin.
I really liked the taste and texture of this and there was no weird after taste and you can get it a 12 pack for $24.99 which is just over $2 per bar and it is highly worth that.
They also have several other products including protein cookies that are actually in Wal-Marts and Whole Foods here close to me- now if we can force those places to carry these bars, I could make them a part of my regular meal plan!
Today was the best day of Keto Krate Week I believe- I didn’t really have anything negative to say about either one of these products- they were both delicious, truly keto and extremely affordable….I normally try to add something bad in a review so it’s not just like I’m kissing some booty…but I can’t find anything negative on either item.
Now that is pretty awesome!
