I loved this flavor. The texture isn't quite a cake, it's a bit more chewy/nougat-like than that, but they nailed the flavor for sure. A very slight artificial aftertaste but nothing too offensive.

I've had these before and they tasted pretty okay. Nutrition content is good as well. I received a box recently as part of a promotion, (buy 5 lbs Optimum Protein get Free box of cake bites). Something was definitely wrong with the ones I received, maybe a bad batch. They were a gold/brown color on the inside, didn't taste very good, and caused terrible gas and stomach issues. Hopefully they haven't changed there ingredients, and it was just a bad batch, but nevertheless, I had to throw them out.

I liked the soft-chewy consistency of the cake bites. The flavor is not that great but it's also not that bad. What I really liked is how it made me feel before the workout, it wasn't the feeling of a full stomach, it just made me feel like my stomach had something to work with while I was training.

I never tried any protein food before. When this was a free add on it was the perfect time to try it. I had higher hopes of the product tasting like birthday cake. The only thing that tastes like a cake was the sprinkles. I would not buy. Especially how much they are normally. Wasn’t a fan. I’ll stick with normal protein food and my protein shakes from gold standard

I had been considering these for a while because I love ON's products, and decided to finally try them because they came free with a protein order. These suck and I am very disappointed. At least now I know I will not be wasting my money on these in the future.

This product borders on false advertisement. "Deliciously whipped protein snack." There is nothing whipped about this product. This product looks nothing like the picture. The interior is dense, just like every other protein bar on the market. This is your typical protein bar cut into three round pieces. That's all. Taste is mediocre and still chalky/gritty. Glad I got these for free. I would never pay for them.

Not bad tasting! The texture is lighter and not as dense as a normal protein bar. The green interior color is actually not there. I have no problem getting rid of artificial colors. It's nice to have three pieces to snack on over time. I look forward to trying a different flavor.

Have they fixed the color and texture of these yet? Still waiting for them to look like the advertising before I buy another box.

Great way to get a sweet fix while still getting protein. Good taste, but obviously not the real thing. IF you are a big protein bar person this should be a nice change.

While this product wasn’t disgusting, it wasn’t that great either. I agree with most of the other reviews,the texture was not as described. It was not “whipped.” It was dense like a typical Quest or whey based protein bar. It was chewy, not creamy or light. The flavor wasn’t bad. It tasted like every other “birthday cake” protein bar I’ve had. The only difference between this and any other protein bar is that it’s broken up into 3 small pieces. I bought a 4 pack, so I will eat the remaining 3 packages but for the money, there is cleaner and better protein bars out there.

  • 1 Peanut Butter Chocolate

Really disappointed by these. The Peanut Butter Chocolate was very chalky and had absolutely no peanut butter flavor. The texture was extremely chewy and dense, not whipped or cake like at all. It was honestly a struggle for me to finish it and I won't be purchasing again.
