After my disappointment with Combat Crunch’s Birthday Cake bar, I was unsure of what to expect from its companion Chocolate Cake flavor (also a “limited edition”). My concerns were misplaced. This is a far superior product. Instead of the pasty texture of Birthday Cake, Chocolate Cake has the chewy-crispy combination that is more typical of other Combat Crunch bars.
If fact, on first taste the flavor may come across as indistinguishable from other chocolate-based bars, but on subsequent tastes, the deep chocolate essence comes through. Unlike Birthday Cake, Chocolate Cake really does taste like its namesake, though admittedly a protein bar version with a texture that is not at all cake-like. Still, it is an overall enjoyable snack.
