My life changed some 2 years ago when I met the love of my life: the Chocolate Caramel Carb Conscious Supreme Protein Bar. 30 grams of protein, low in sugar, only 5g saturated fat, fulfilling, and of course delicious. The caramel in the orange wrapper supreme gives the bar long lasting substance, not allowing to consumer to scarf the bar. The caramel gives the eating experience longevity, since it cannot be chewed and swallowed like the peanut butter bar or the cookies and cream bar. I am finding that I finish those 2 flavors far more quickly than the caramel bar. There will be no talk about the Rocky Road flavor, f*** that bar.
I was inspired to write this post as I was driving home this evening. Wawa's bright lights beckoned me as the Durango 95 purred real horrorshock. It has gotten to the point where the site of a Wawa triggers a Supreme craving in the way a ringing bell causes Pavlov's dog to salivate. It had been a long day, so I stopped in and got myself an orange wrapper Supreme. Of course, I was already eating it on the way out the door. As I drove home eating it, indifferent to the crumbs I was getting all over my jacket, I came to the conclusion that Chocolate Caramel is certainly my favorite flavor. Peanut Butter is a very close runner-up. However, I am curious as to how quickly I consumer a PB Bar versus the Chocolate Caramel. The overall experience of eating the Chocolate Caramel bar is superior to the others, in that it tastes better (very slightly), has 55% the saturated fat of PB and Cookies 'n Cream, and lasts longer. Chocolate Caramel launched the empire. It put the Supreme family on the map, and now the WaWa store owners are giving Supremes primo shelf space in their nutrition bar sections.
Think of the four Supreme Protein flavors as the Corleone children. You have Santino Corleone as the PB Bar. Powerful, smooth, very likeable, but a bit hot-headed. PB is too obvious a flavor for a protein bar. Everyone assumes Peanut Butter is the ideal for any sort of healthy food. Sonny was the obvious heir apparent to Vito Corleone. Then there is Fredo. What are we going to do with Fredo? Send him to Vegas to run some mickey mouse casino? The guy got passed over. But hey he is still family. Fredo is the Cookies 'n Cream Bar. It's effective when its not banging cocktail waitresses two at a time. Michael is definitely the Chocolate Caramel Supreme Bar. Michael was hardly the heir apparent. He wanted to stay out of the family business, he went to college and joined the Marines. Who would think a caramel protein bar would be the best? But it quietly gets the job done. Now for the most obvious association. Connie is definitely the Rocky Road Supreme. F*** Connie Corleone, and f*** the Rocky Road Supreme Bar. Both are a disgrace to their family name. They both rie the coattails of their much more relevant family members (even Fredo is much better than Connie).
So there you have it. The Chocolate Caramel Supreme Bar is the best choice you can make in the Supreme Protein line of nutrition bars. Enjoy the other flavors, but when in doubt, falling back on a classic never fails. I am also hearing rumblings of a Chocolate Pretzel flavor. Excellent potentional, but the taste and nutrition stats remain to be seen.
