There are no artificial sweeteners which mean you don't have comments stating that this item is overly sweet or leaves a terrible taste in your mouth after consuming. Those negatives are pretty much solely linked to artificial sweeteners like Sucralose. The flavor options taste as you would expect them to. Flavoring that is well-balanced is not always easy to find with this type of product and the fact that this brand has spent the time to ensure you will love there product is awesome. It is important to note that some say they can taste the protein being used but it is only in certain flavor varieties.

Flavors

This product comes in a pretty big variety of flavors when comparing it to others in its class. You will have a choice between fourteen different flavors. Typically, we get a choice from somewhere between four and seven options. As you can see, this is exponentially more.

This should give most people several options that they truly love and crave. Obviously, eating your favorite cookie when it is actually nutricious is something we can all stand behind.

Consistency

This brand still has a bit of work to do on the consistency of their cookie. They are very heavy and dense which is common in protein bars. There are many reports of this product being dry and very crumbly also. This can make quite a mess and should be taken into consideration when consuming them. They are quite soft, however, when they start to near their expiration date they become quite hard. This can make them difficult to bite into and difficult to chew. Customers are not completely displeased with the texture of this product but they do feel as if there is room for improvement. It is important to note that there are no reports stating that the texture was so awful that the product became unusable.

Effectiveness

As a meal replacement, this product is quite effective. When you are on the go and trying to stick to a healthy diet, stopping for some fast food could ruin your entire food plan for the day. This cookie packs enough calories to keep you full and give you the energy you need to continue crushing every activity you become part of.

You will accelerate your recovery times, improve muscle maintenance, and enhance muscle growth. Overall, your workout performance will improve upon using this product regularly.

Ingredients

As with all products that offer a variety of flavor options, you will have slightly varying ingredient lists. You can find the complete breakdown of each by heading over to the brand's website. You will be getting the same basic ingredients regardless of which flavor you choose to go with. They use a blend of Flour, Rice Protein, Wheat Gluten, Pea Protein, Cane Sugar, Water, Palm Margarine, Natural Flavors, Antioxidants, Citric Acids, Vegetable Glycerine, Baking Soda, Chicory Root Fiber, Sea Salt, Xanthan Gum, Sunflower Lecithin, and Guar Gum. This is a pretty standard list of ingredients when you consider what goes into a cookie and what typically goes into your protein bars.

Calories

Due to the fact that this product is available in a two-ounce and a four-ounce option you will be able to use it as a healthy snack or as a meal replacement. The two-ounce variety yields right around two hundred calories. It varies slightly depending on the flavor variety you decide to go with. Obviously, if you go with the four-ounce option you will be eating about four hundred calories. Most people like to keep snacks right around two hundred calories so, as you can see four hundred will make for a great meal. The calories you consume with this product will help fuel your day. There are enough to ensure you don't start feeling hungry shortly after eating it and that is, for obvious reasons, appreciated among users.

Sugar

This product does contain more sugar than many other protein bars that are currently available to you. When we consider this, we feel that it is a simple solution as to why. This product does not contain artificial sweeteners to help with the overall sweetness of the product. So, you will be consuming natural sugar that your body will use as energy. Depending on the flavor choice you make you could be consuming up to twenty-eight grams of sugar per serving. For those suffering from Diabetes or those that limit their sugar intake, this can make this product unusable. Many people can fit it into their daily routine easily and are happy that they do not need to deal with the negative side effects related to sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners.

Energy

You will get a great boost of energy when you go with Lenny & Larry's Complete Cookie. As our bodies break our food down it provides our entire body with energy that is used throughout the day. This is only one way that we get energy when using a product like this one. The protein content will also help improve your energy levels. Your muscles will feel less fatigued and this will lead you to longer and more productive work out sessions. Pre-workouts and caffeine pills rely on stimulants to provide you energy and oftentimes this can lead to a dreadful crashing effect. This product does not contain any stimulants and therefore you will not need to worry about becoming completely devoid of energy at any point from using this product.

Servings

Depending on whether you go with the two or four-ounce option will depend on the serving you are ingesting. The snack-sized option is equal to just under sixty grams. This is larger than other snack-sized protein products. Obviously, the four-ounce option is going to be about a hundred and twenty grams as it is double the two-ounce size. These cookies are sold in a twelve-count box. There is no other option available which is a bit disappointing to those that like to try singles or stock up. It is important to note that they do offer variety packs. This will allow you to try several different flavors. This is important when you are just trying a product for the first time.

Side Effects

As far as nutritional supplements go, protein products don't have nearly as many adverse effects as others. There are not any reports from consumers that this product is causing bad reactions. This does not mean you won't suffer from any, as you may. The common side effects associated with this type of product are bloating, nausea, upset stomach, increased bowel movements, and gas. All of these things are not usually too much of a problem. More than likely you won't experience any of them at all. For those of you that do, you may want to discontinue use if your symptoms become severe or start impacting your day in a negative way.

Advantages

There are some really awesome advantages when you go with this product. The sweet tooth that haunts your dreams will finally be sated with a cookie that tastes great. You can use it as a snack or a meal replacement which is truly awesome. It will help keep you on track with your diet and avoiding those unhealthier snack and meal options. You will also benefit from the fact that your muscles will be better taken care of. The reduction of muscle soreness is probably the aspect people appreciate the most. In addition, it is really great that your muscle growth will be enhanced when you continue to work hard on a daily basis. The reason we spend so much time working out at home or in the gym is the fact that we are trying to improve how our bodies look and feel. This product can help us along the way towards both of these things.

Disadvantages

The consistency of this product is probably the area where it needs the most work. While it is not the absolute worst that we have seen it definitely has room for improvement. The other thing customers complain about is the level of sugar that these cookies contain. We don't really feel as if this is a disadvantage because the sugar level is due to the fact that this product avoids artificial sweeteners and ingredients. The last thing we have to say, in way of negatives, is that this product does not age well. If you let it sit too long you may end up with an inedible cookie that is rock hard or moldy. On average, this product contains fewer negatives than most other products in the same class.

Value

The cost of this product varies slightly, depending on which flavor you decide to try. They are all quite affordable, especially when you look at what meal replacement bars cost. Most people will be able to work it into their budget without taking a huge chunk out of their bank account. Value can not only be based on the price. You need to take into consideration how effective the product is. This one is very effective in a variety of ways and we feel this increases the overall value. In addition, when you look over all the aspects it is easy to see why so many people feel this product is a truly good value. You will be able to easily fit it into your routine, kill your sweet tooth, and afford it without stress. It is also awesome for those that are trying to keep track of their calories and lose weight.
