[Dollarama] Pure Protein Bars Plus Fibre - $4 for box of 4 - Dollarama

Retailer:
Dollarama
More offers from Dollarama
Just saw these the other day at Dollarama and they sell for $10 at Walmart and Amazon.

They are not the greatest tasting bars but work for me when in a pinch for one and the price is good.

Expiry date on the boxes I got are Sept/20.

Seems like a good deal to me, I will pick up one of each flavor tonight, if they're good I'll be in for a half dozen or more.

You can get the regular Pure Protein bars at Costco for usually around $14.99 on sale for 18. They actually taste pretty good for a protein bar.

yes they are good as well but have a higher carb count if you are into that kind of thing.

These ones are more like the Kirkland brand ones and Quest bars as far as net carbs go.

If you're a male, I'd avoid these bars. Soy protein increases estrogen levels and leads to the wrong kind of gains =P

The protein sources for these bars are Milk Protein and Whey.
Regardless, it would take huge amount of soy to see any negative effect in males.

As a rule I wouldn't purchase food products at Dollarama. There's a reason that it isn't at a regular store at a regular price. It would seem often to have "fallen off the back of a truck", perhaps a missed or failed inspection and an agreement with major retailers not to sell.

I'm all about a good deal (that doesn't make me gassy) but food from the dollar store is a hard pass for me.

Good catch. It's the other pure protein bars that have soy protein.

This is actually a really good deal. These for 8$/box at Walmart when on sale, $10 regular price (box of 4)

And they're actually quite delicious.

I'd be all over these if the tapioca fiber in there was keto friendly, they're hella good

Orrrrrr.... It could be that Dollarama has negotiated a lower wholesale price with manufacturers in order to keep their prices low. On products that have a ridiculously high markup elsewhere. And the manufacturers like it because they increase their exposure to a broader customer base.

This has whey. But yes, daily Soy protein bar has had negligible but direct impact to male testosterone. Proven by studies. Just google. I had the same concern with Clif Builder Bars. The consensu was that dont have more than one bar a day.

Again, it would take a lot of soy to negatively impact men's testosterone level.
