If you have been following me since Ye Olden Days Of WLS (I had roux en y gastric bypass in 2004, and I've blogged and been on social media since 2005), you will know this is my second go 'round with this product. (Or here is to hoping it is the same product I adored back in days of old.)
Proti Wafers. I think I called them "Sugar Wafers, Only Better" in my very first review which I can no longer find.
Sent to me from netrition, I have a box of Proti Wafers in my choice – vanilla.
Netrition's site reads:
Proti Nutrition Proti Wafer Squares are great tasting, high protein squares that will satisfy your hunger. Proti Squares offer a rich taste at 200-210 calories a serving.
The stats –
Ingredients: Protein blend (milk protein isolate, hydrolyzed gelatin, whey protein isolate, pea protein isolate), wheat flour, fractionated palm and palm kernel oil, sugar, fructose, milk ingredients (skim milk powder, while milk powder, butter fat), cocoa butter, unsweetened chocolate, soy lecithin, soy flour, sunflower oil, water, natural and artificial flavors, salt, sodium bicarbonate, sucralose (non-nutritive sweetener), corn flour.
In each box, you receive five packs of two wafer-bars. Each packet contains two wafers.
The best way to describe these bars: old-fashioned sugar wafers. I can't think of anything else when biting into them. Except these have a chocolate base, and a chocolate drizzle, dressed much fancier than the stacks of sugar-cookies I ate as a kid.
The biggest difference? These pack 15 grams of protein per 200 calorie serving. That's pretty super for a snack food. Early in my weight loss surgery life, I will admit to being psychotically wary of the carbohydrate, fat and sugar content of this product, but now, I find it is a great balance.
- Product – Proti Nutrition Proti Wafers, Vanilla
- Price – $14.95 (for ten wafers)
- From – netrition
- Pros – OMG SUGAR WAFER COOKIES WITH PROTEIN POWERS. Portable protein for the purse (or other) sneaky snacks for the movies. Tastes like it should not be a protein product
- Cons – Tastes like it should not be a protein product. Your kids will open them before you get a chance to review them for your blog and ruin the box they came in. Just saying. Your kids will eat them. If you want to save them for your bariatric diet, HIDE THEM from your family because they ain't cheap.
