Axe & Sledge Home Made Bar Review Spin-Off Of Home Made Meal Replacement Shake

Video Transcription

Brad:
What's going on, guys? This is Brad and John with Best Price Nutrition and you're watching the Best Price Nutrition YouTube channel. You can check out our website, bestpricenutrition.com, where we always have deals running. We're doing a lot of giveaways this year. So be sure to subscribe to our channel so you can stay alerted anytime we do any of those. So today we're going to do a flavor review of a new product. Want to let the know what product it is?

John:
So I am super excited about this one.

Brad:
Yeah.

John:
Bars are always fun. Functional foods are always fun and kind of a favorite among everybody around the office, and I think our customers as well. And today we have the Axe & Sledge Home Made Bars. I'm especially excited about this one because Ax & Sledge, great brand, high quality supplements. Their flavors are unique and on-point.

Brad:
Always awesome.

John:
Protein flavors, amazing. They do some interesting ones like the whiskey and cola, the grind, which is one of our best sellers.

Brad:
Yeah, yeah. [crosstalk 00:00:50], yeah.

John:
And I've tried the homemade powder in shakes. Really tasty, so really excited to see what it's like in a bar form.

Brad:
Yeah. And I don't know if you guys have had Outright bars, but I feel like this is going to be something very similar. It's kind of like a whole food bar. So I'm just going to go over the ingredients for one of them, the salted caramel crunch. It's made with whey protein concentrate, isolate, egg white, bovine collagen. I don't even know there was colleges in there. Honey, almond butter, tapioca fiber, dairy protein crisps, sunflower oil, sunflower lecithin, natural flavors, sea salt, Monk Fruit extract and Stevia, so you're not even getting artificial sweeteners in here. You're getting honey, you're getting Stevia, you're getting Monk Fruit. A video we recently did, they used Stevia Monk Fruit. If you use those two together actually comes out like a really nice sweet flavor without being that gross bitterness. And then as far as the macros, are they all 240? No.

John:
270 for the chocolate peanut butter. You know what? I would've said, I was talking to Edwin before we started this, and I was expecting like 280 to 350 or 400. So not bad at all from a calorie standpoint.

Brad:
Yeah. Yeah. No, 270 at the most. The chocolate one is 250. The caramel one is 240.

John:
Carbs aren't terrible either.

Brad:
No, no. 22 grams of cards. If you take off the five fiber, you're looking at 17 grams. Really not that bad. And then the honey, I mean, you can make an argument that's not that big of a deal. But obviously, to me it'd be a little bit better to use honey than just straight sugar. 21 grams of protein, 10 grams of fat. I have a feeling these things are going to just slap. I think they're just going to be awesome.

John:
I'd say just from the feel of it, I know we were kind of commenting on the weight of the box. Yeah, I'm expecting kind of like an Axe & Sledge or maybe a less greasy Knock The Carb Out kind of texture. Looks exactly like it, right?

Brad:
So it looks just like a block basically, just a straight up block.

John:
I don't know about you, but I really prefer this type of texture, that kind of buttery type of texture to the typical kind of chalky...

Brad:
Yeah, I agree.

John:
... chalky protein bar.

Brad:
So let's do salted caramel. Let's do one, then let's end on that.

John:
And which one are you most excited about trying?

Brad:
Either the caramel or this one. I'm not really a big chocolate guy. It just doesn't really get me going. I don't really care too much for it.

John:
Well, it's kind of interesting. It's about time Axe & Sledge put out a functional food in a bar like this, because we've seen like REDCON1 with the MRE. It has the MRE bars to go along with it. A lot of other brands do similar things.

Brad:
Yeah.

John:
So I'm really, really excited about these.

Brad:
Yeah. And usually they take the time to make sure it's really, really good when it comes out. All right. So this is Salted Caramel Crunch.

John:
Are you a caramel fan?

Brad:
Yeah.

John:
Same here. Oh, wow.

Brad:
Okay. You're going to have to hear my clicking jaw for this one. Those crunches, it's like a wafer. It's really good.

John:
It's really rich and really good caramel flavors.

Brad:
Once it warms up in your mouth... that is good.

John:
The texture is a little bit weird. It's not bad, but it's not what I expect. I kind of expected like a...

Brad:
Softer.

John:
... an NxtBar or a Greenfeul Bar type texture.

Brad:
It's not necessarily hard, but when you first bite, you're like, that's not the texture I want. But the moment it warms up and gets wet, it really dissolves nicely.

John:
That's really good.

Brad:
That is good. Yeah, for sure. I don't get too much salt, but the caramel and the crunch, for sure.

John:
And you know what? When you were talking about the Monk Fruit and the Stevia and the honey, I wasn't sure what to expect because natural flavors can sometimes...

Brad:
Suck?

John:
... suck.

Brad:
Yeah.

John:
This was amazing.

Brad:
Yeah. I feel everyone's kind of coming to a consensus that you can use a mix of all of the natural ones to get the same thing as sucralose tastes like. I like the way it tastes. It makes everything taste good, but it's not [inaudible 00:04:53].

John:
No protein after taste whatsoever.

Brad:
No. No, it just tastes like an actual whole food bar. That's awesome.

John:
You know what? I am a big peanut butter fan, but I think I would almost go with those just to save myself like 30 or 40 calories, and it's delicious.

Brad:
Yeah, for sure. You would almost think that this one would be the most, being like caramel.

John:
Caramel, yeah. I love a salted caramel too.

Brad:
Yeah, yeah. And then while you're cutting that one up, let me see if there's anything really different in here. I'll just go through the ingredients. It's the same protein blend, honey, peanut butter, 85% cacao chocolate chips, tapioca fiber, same stuff after that. But you're going to have the peanut butter and the 85% cacao chocolate chips, and those are made of cacao mass, sugar, cocoa butter, and vanilla. So you do get some actual sugar in there, but it's in the form of the chips.

John:
I like that there's a real chocolate chips in here.

Brad:
Yeah, it's got a good distribution in there too.

John:
Let's try this one. So this is going to be peanut butter, chocolate chip.

Brad:
Oh, fuck.

John:
That's good.

Brad:
Wow. That texture is so much softer.

John:
Mm-hmm (affirmative). That might be one of the best bars I've ever had.

Brad:
Hands down.

John:
It literally tastes like a peanut butter cookie.

Brad:
Yeah. Yeah, it does.

John:
Brad's going for seconds.

Brad:
I have to. I actually need some salt in there, but it's good. Yeah, it's like a peanut butter cookie.

John:
My grandma crunches up Ruffles potato chips and puts them in her chocolate chip cookies, and it kind of adds that salty taste to it.

Brad:
I can see that being really good.

John:
Yeah, this is fantastic.

Brad:
This or the Knock The Carb Out Bar.

John:
These are very similar to it.

Brad:
I love Knock The Carb Out Bars. It's always been my favorite bar. But if I'm trying to save on 120 calories, I have no problem doing this at all.

John:
In terms of the fat, I suppose if it's whether you're doing keto or not, but this has 13 and Knock The Carb Out Bar is a little bit closer to 20. I want to say it's 17, 18.

Brad:
Yeah. So the thing with having a bar that has carbs, I mean, obviously they all have protein. But carbs and fat together, the only reason that's not the greatest thing, I mean, it's going to make a good bar, it's going to taste good. But if you get carbs and fats together, generally, you're probably going to start storing that fat immediately if you had carbs with it, just because when your insulin spikes, it's going to store your fat. It's not the worst thing at the end of the day. It's calories in over calories out. But yeah, it's really to me not that bad. They're not that high of calorie at all. That one is awesome.

John:
Yeah.

Brad:
I think I liked the aftertaste on this one more, but the bar itself on that one more.

John:
I tend to not be a huge brownie guy, so I'm curious to see how I feel about it this one.

Brad:
Yeah. I mean, we could be surprised. This one actually is kind of greasy. You see that?

John:
Yeah.

Brad:
It's not over the top or anything.

John:
The Knock The Carb Out Bar I love. It's like a sheen and a grease slick right on top of them.

Brad:
This one's definitely going to be the softest of them all. Yeah. The Knock The Carb Out Bars, while they are good, sometimes the outside of the wrapper is even greasy.

John:
It's a double chocolate brownie.

Brad:
Yeah.

John:
They've got a real chocolate chips too?

Brad:
Yeah. It's actually that consistency. You know what I'm saying?

John:
You know what this reminds me of? I don't know. I think it's a Little Debbie.

Brad:
Star Cake thing? The classic brownie.

John:
The really kind of... Yeah.

Brad:
With the sprinkle things on top? A hundred percent.

John:
This one, I don't want to say it's bland, but there's just really strong caramel, really strong the peanut butter, and I kind of expected this to be like a really rich chocolate. It's good, but it's not...

Brad:
I agree with that. This one tastes exactly like the Cosmic Brownies.

John:
I can see that. It's exactly the texture too.

Brad:
Yeah. I almost like this one and I like this one.

John:
Really?

Brad:
Yeah. You know what they should do, what would be a really good idea because these are all awesome, is do a variety where you get four of each flavor because I like all of these the same. I think a box of any of these would be awesome, but everyday you can want something different.

John:
What did they call them when you got like the half brownie, half cookie? It's like a blondie or something like that. I would like to see a chocolate chip or peanut butter chocolate brownie.

Brad:
Wow. Probably the best bars I've had in a very long time.

John:
Probably.

Brad:
A lot of companies are coming out with things that aren't bars. They come out with chips, gummies, protein, oatmeal pies, all this different stuff, where the actual protein bars kind of get left out. This is actually a release of protein bars that are really, really good.

John:
Yeah. And speaking of the topic of kind of the out of the box functional foods, you just brought in a ton of the new FINAFLEX Oatmeal Cream Pie Flavors. I mean protein pie.

Brad:
I think I got every flavor, because I thought we had them all. So it's not me. But now have the original, we have apple would still be had. It's like apple pie. We have key lime pie, Georgia peach pie.

John:
Chocolate peanut butter.

Brad:
Chocolate peanut butter, double chocolate. I want to say there was one more. I don't know.

John:
Peach apple. But yeah, FINAFLEX Protein Pies, really kind of tastes just like a Little Debbie ones.

Brad:
Yeah. For sure. Yeah, I think these are freaking amazing, honestly. Every single one of them I liked and it would actually purchase.

John:
I mean, I know I'm always saying this is my new favorite is this. This is right up there with, for me, the NXTs [inaudible 00:10:41] Fuels and Knock The Carb Outs. This is a tasty bar. And like you said, the macros ingredients seem great.

Brad:
How they taste versus the calories alone, it's awesome. I can't get over it. 270 at the most, that's awesome.

John:
I'm a big fan of Outrights, but Outrights are what, 360, some of those bars?

Brad:
Yeah. No, they're up there. And those things are kind of sugar bombs almost.

John:
Right.

Brad:
I mean, they use honey, which you said it's cool. But at the end of the day, if you're counting calories, 300 something versus 270, 250, 240, 240, dude, that's nothing. Yeah. Wow. I can't say enough good things. I think these are all great flavors. We're going to chop these up and let everyone else in the office try them.

John:
Should we?

Brad:
I don't know. I'm going to say that.

John:
We just got these up on the site yesterday. So these are up on the site available for purchase. We'll drop a link down below this video as well. But yeah, highly recommend them.

Brad:
Yeah. And also we have a limited supply. We will be getting some more in, but if you see this video and you think you might want some, get them because I promise you they will not last long. And that sounds super salesy, but I'll be honest. We can only get a certain amount. They're only letting so many people have them. And we have stores that we send them to so we're not going to have many left. If you want to try them, go get them immediately. Yeah, I think that's about it.

John:
Sounds good.

Brad:
Thanks guys.

John:
Later guys.
