Redcon1 are making some solid products.

Earlier this year Redcon1 really changed the game with its MRE Bar, that immediately shot up our list of top five bars on the market. The major highlight of the product is its incredible consistency, as because it uses a very different set of ingredients compare do most protein bars, it doesn’t have that traditional tough and chewy texture.

Today we’ve got our review of Redcon1’s two new MRE Bar flavors it plans on launching soon with Chocolate Peanut Butter and Birthday Cake. They both have the usual MRE Bar nutritional profile providing 20g of protein, 29g of carbohydrates with 6g of that sugar and 3g fiber, 9g of fat, and a total of 260 calories.


Both of Redcon1’s new MRE Bar flavors maintain that enjoyable consistency from the product’s first three flavors. When you bite into the bars, they almost crumble around you and break up very easily. They don’t leave you chewing long after you’ve taken a bite, which as mentioned, is one of the reasons we consider the MRE Bar a true game changer.

As far as the actual tastes of the bars go, they shine through just as much as the MRE Bar’s three originals. The Birthday Cake flavor is exactly as it’s titled, featuring a mildly heavy title flavor that doesn’t come across too sweet, but still sweet enough to recognize as obviously birthday cake. There are also rainbow sprinkles scattered throughout the bar, athough they’re not something we feel you can taste.

The Chocolate Peanut Butter is our favorite of the two new MRE Bars, mostly because it manages to combine both chocolate and peanut butter flavors. The tastes seem to stand out at different times while you eat away at the bar. Sometimes the chocolate is the star of the bar, but then you take another bite and get a strong hit of peanut butter, creating that noticeable, balanced, and enjoyable mix of the two strong flavors.

Redcon1’s upcoming MRE Bars really just further strengthen the protein bar’s already strong reputation. They feature everything there is to like about the first flavors but with new, exciting, and noticeably present tastes. They also give the MRE Bar fans slightly more common options to choose from, as its originals are all quite unique flavors that you won’t find available for many other bars.
