This is one of the last major categories that the supplement giant hasn’t taken on – we’re already excited about them going after Gatorade and stepping into the sports drink market, so this rounds things out quite nicely.

Combat Crunch Ingredients

Right now, all way know is that the bar has 20g of protein, 28g of carbs (coming from 12g of fiber, 5g sugar, and 1g sugar alcohol), and 7g fat (4g saturated). Much of that fiber is a prebiotic fiber (similar to Quest Bars).

Given those numbers, it’s not at all a “clean” bar, so they’re going to have to come through on taste.

MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars Ingredients and Nutrition Label

The Ingredient Label

According to the picture on the box, we can see:

  • Low-Carb (28g carbs is low??)
  • Low-Sugar (5g sugar is low? Maybe)
  • Gluten-Free

Every company has their own take on what that means, so we’ll update this with details later.


So far we know:

  • Chocolate chip cookie dough
  • Peanut Butter Cup
  • Possibly Chocolate Chip, but that could be a listing error / typo from chocolate chip cookie dough above

Ingredient Formula Guesses

As a hip and popular company, you might expect to see them follow the latest trends, but that’s not always the case.

The leader in protein bars is far and away Quest Bars[2], so it’s possible that they’ll steal a page out of their playbook and go with a fiber-based carb that leads to less “active” carbohydrates.

musclepharmEven the companies that are copying Quest Bars to an extent — OhYeah! Victory Bars[3] and ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Protein Bars[4] — are both popular, even though neither of them have come close to the taste that Quest has dominated the market with.

However, they could also just go with something that is best taste, and suited more towards MusclePharm’s hard-working athletes who can afford the carbs. This is actually where we see them going – more of a delicious, “bulking” bar.

What’s the release date?

MusclePharm Protein Bars

The release date of the MusclePharm Protein Bars is shown as Sept 1 on their newly released image

September 1 has been announced as the release date, as shown in the picture to the right.

Still unknown, but since it’s beginning to appear at retailers in “coming soon” mode, we’re thinking late July or early August 2014… but that’s a total guess.
