Product Review: Think Thin Bites Protein Bars

Think Thin Chocolate Toffee Nut Bites 15 eaOne of the most common questions I've received about the Belly Fat Cure is "What protein bars are allowed, so I can have them in my car when I am out and get hungry?".

I finally found something that has a low enough S/C (Sugar/Carb for you newbies) count to qualify for the Belly Fat Cure. It is the ThinkThin Bites that are carried at Whole Foods, Trader Joes and Amazon. They have Chocolate Toffee Nut, White Chocolate Raspberry and Cookies and Cream.

I tried the Chocolate Toffee Bar, and it was really wonderful! The chocolate was really good and creamy, and the inside was very tasty. Granted, they don't taste like your typical "candy bar" so if you are expecting it to be a Reese's Cup, its not, so get over it! But as protein bars go, it is great!

They contain Maltitol, which on the Belly Fat Cure is a recommended Sugar replacement. Maltitol can upset your stomach, so use with care and discover how your body reacts to it before ingesting too much. It contains 0 Sugar/17 Carbs for the 2 "bites", in other words the whole bar. That is a 0/1 S/C Value!

Unfortunately half way through the Chocolate Toffee Bar I realized, that there has to be peanuts in it due to the texture. And sure enough, all three of the bars have peanuts or peanut butter in them. I have an allergy to peanuts that is not life theatening, but makes me break out in painful cysts! So a few days from now, I'll have a lovely new complexion and a lesson learned! However, if you don't have a peanut allergy, I HIGHLY recommend the Think Think Bites as a little snack while on the Belly Fat Cure. I'd definitely eat them, if I could.

The same company also makes bars called Think Thin (without the "Bites" in the name). These bars are also 0 Sugar but are higher in the Carbs. But not terribly high (if I remember right it was like 27 grams of Carbs), and you could just eat half or count a 0/2 S/C Value.

I'm giving the ThinkThin Bites 4 Stars on the Belly Fat Cure.  Great taste, great low S/C Value, available nationally, not too pricey. Just wish they had a peanut free option though.


  1. In case you are wondering, I have a nice huge zit today thanks to these bars and their peanuts! Ha! But truly my peanut allergy keeps me from eating my kids Halloween candy too.

    I had the White Chocolate ThinkThin bar (not the Bites) today from Trader Joes. It was great and no peanuts! Yea! It had a S/C of 0/2 for the whole bar. Those of you looking for protein bars should check it out!

  2. I purchased several varities, and tasted the Cookies and Cream first. I was disappointed how little the 2 bars were inside the package--each was 2 little bites! I hated to waste 2 carbs eating both, so I only ate one. It was very blah tasting. I threw away the second bar several days later. I wouldn't purchase again!

  3. The Think Thin Bites are just 1 carb serving (17grams) for the the whole bar, or both "Bites". It is the regular Think Thin bars that is 2 servings for the whole bar.

  4. Just found your site. Wish I'd found it 5 weeks ago when I was starting BFC and couldn't find most of his recommended specialty products! Good info; thanks for doing this. I'm down about 13 lbs in 5 weeks. I'm doing the 15/6, but also trying to stay at appx. 1200 calories. Seems to be working well for this 44 yr old female...

  5. I just found these in my neighborhood Kroger! I had the choc brownie and peanut butter something. . .anyway, they were alright. In a pinch, go for it! I do wanna keep these in my bag so I'll have them with me when I'm out. A good way to stay on target, I think.
