Oh Henry! "Pro"


I think I may have tainted this review a little, you see when I took a look at this bar I had a bit of a "Candy Critic mental block". I just got sick of the idea of reviewing another variation bar. I eat way too many of these different versions of classic bars, and sure I could just not review them, but they're so predominant in the candy world I think it would be wrong not to give them a try. So, I said to myself, all you have to do to review this treat is compare it to the original, and that was a big mistake.

One bite into this Oh Henry! Pro and I could tell this was no Oh Henry! bar, I can't even really figure out how or why they share a name. First of all, there is no fudge in the centre of this bar, instead there's some kind of pasty (kind of like smooth peanut butter) centre log with no particular flavour at all. All this strange centre managed to do was make me really thirsty, not good considering I didn't have any water with me at the time. Secondly there was virtually no caramel at all in this bar. I can't prove it but I really couldn't find a single trace of any caramel at all. All the other ingredients where the same as the classic Oh Henry! bar, but considering all the other ingredients are just peanuts and chocolate, that's kind of sad.

The one positive for this bar is I must say compared to the few protein bars I've eaten in my life, this one's not bad. I really think the problem with this bar that I had was because of the label. I expected an Oh Henry! bar, but instead I got an ok protein bar.
