Elevation Chocolate Chip Protein bars are in my bag for this review. I guess they’re still in the box, but these do fit really well in a duffle bag. You can always keep one handy for after a workout (assuming that they’re good, we’ll find out). They can always probably serve as a decent snack whether you’re a fitness person or not.

I recently tried one of their other bars earlier this month and it was pretty good. To save money, I was going with protein powder for a long time for my supplement needs. I still keep at least one big tub of it around, but, bars bring something unique to the table.
There’s something about being able to chomp on it that adds to the experience. Plus, you don’t need to worry about going to the bathroom soon after like with an 8 to 16 ounce shake. Bars also pack more calories if that’s what you’re looking for.
These Elevation Chocolate Chip Protein bars are like the original version of the ones I already reviewed. Those were the double chocolate protein bars, pretty good if I remember correctly. Elevation is one of Aldi’s flagship brands for fitness products. It carries their Twice as Nice guarantee on the label, too.
Let’s take a look at those nutrition facts!
Elevation Chocolate Chip Protein Bar Nutrition Facts
This box contains 6 bars at 170 calories each. Individually, they have a surprisingly high amount of fat content in them. If I was in their marketing department, I’d definitely milk the keto thing on the front of the box. I’m pretty sure that they can’t be part of that diet because of the carb and sugar content, though.
The elevation chocolate chip protein bars have a little bit of sodium in them. You’ll get close to 1/10 of your daily carbs eating one of these, along with a substantial amount of fiber. There’s 8 grams of sugar in there, too.
Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for: you get 12 grams of protein in these. That’s just about a quarter of your daily recommended amount.
In addition to the protein and fiber, these also come loaded with vitamins and minerals. You’ll be looking at 30% of your daily iron. 25% of your daily amount of vitamin E, 30% of your riboflavin – man, these Elevation chocolate chip protein bars have everything!
There’s also a lot of Niacin, Thiamin, calcium and zinc in these. Lots of vitamin B12 as well. If you weren’t well-nourished before, you should be now.
The one area I need to knock these is for the chemically sounding ingredients. They aren’t all like that, but c’mon, the first one is fructooligosaccharides. That sounds like Dr. Seuss wrote it. To be fair, almost all of the rest of the ingredients are natural-sounding. Unsweetened coconut, almond butter, semisweet chocolate chips, you get the idea. These Elevation Chocolate Chip Protein Bars also contain soy, milk, wheat, peanuts, almonds and coconut.
After one bite of the first one, I realized I’d be eating two of these. They really are good, capturing all the great parts of chocolate chips and marrying those to some protein. The bars are smaller but also filling, so they can really come in handy to have in a gym bag or other sports bag. Aldi sells them for about $4.49 where I’m at. For protein, that’s a good price. Only $.75 per bar work for my wallet.
See if they show up in your next Aldi Ad!
