Truffulls chocolate and caramel bars are the latest from the makers of Full Bar, the “Be Full Solution.”
Truffulls and Fullbars were created by Dr. Michael Snyder, who wanted to give people a less invasive alternative to weight loss surgery.
I wondered how the Truffulls would compare to other products that try to make you feel full or suppress your appetite such as Sensa, the Sprinkle Diet or diet shakes such as Almased or the Khloe and Kim Kardashian Fast Shake by Quick Trim.
The Truffulls come in chocolate caramel and chocolate mint. I tried the Truffulls chocolate caramel for my review. I liked the idea of the truffulls because they are gluten-free which is not the case with the other Full Bar I’ve reviewed in the past.
First, let’s start off with taste and texture of this “weight loss candy.” The chocolate caramel bar had a bitter taste that reminded me of bittersweet baking chocolate. If you like dark chocolate, you probably won’t mind the flavor. The Truffulls bar was extremely chewy. It wasn’t as tasty as a real candy bar, but it was certainly a sugary treat for someone on a diet.
But the real goal of eating a Truffulls bar, which is like a weight loss candy, is not only to satisfy a sweet tooth craving but to eat fewer calories.
To put the Truffulls bar to the test, I ate it a half hour before eating my lunch-a Cobb chicken salad from Wendy’s. I usually eat the entire Cobb salad, so it will be easy to tell if the Truffulls bar had any affect on my appetite.
Here’s some thing I learned during my Truffulls review:
No. 1: The Truffulls are gluten-free which means they are great for people who are allergic to wheat.
No. 2: One serving of the Truffulls contains 120 calories, 9 grams of sugar, 5 grams of fiber, 8 grams of protein, 3.5 grams of fat.
No. 3: The Truffulls protocol is to eat it 30 minutes before a meal and drink 8 ounces of water with the bar.
No. 4: The Truffulls can also be used to fight cravings during your danger snack times of the day. But I suggest only eating three times a day and not using them as snacks.
No. 5: Allergens in Truffulls include milk and soy.
Now for the results.
On the plus side, I only ate half my Cobb salad which is half as much as usual.
On the down side, I was not as hungry as usual and did not enjoy my Cobb salad as much! Also, I did not like adding 9 grams of sugar to my daily total.
So, I guess there is a tradeoff with everything. The only improvement or change I’d make to Truffulls is using Stevia instead of sugar to lower the sugar count. Otherwise, it did curb my appetite and the taste was not spectacular but satisfactory!
