Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

candy barrrrsss *super trooper voice*



Recommended Posts

I bought the BariatricPal variety pack Protein candy bars and had the Rocky Road one yesterday and IT WAS SO GOOD.

AND IT MADE ME SO VIOLENTLY ILL.

lol. I *knew* it probably would because of the whey Proteins, but it was heavenly. And *almost* worth it. I ended up sweating for 2 hours and puking. So, maybe not.

Anyone know of any NON-WHEY chocolate goodies we can have? Soy-based?? Obviously low-carb, preferably high protein. Low-carb soy anything is so hard to find!

Nice! I'll check them out. I got the flavor of delicious chocolate and don't want to have to sacrifice it! lol. Those bars were such a tease. I threw them at my coworker to take away from me but crawled out of the bathroom later and was like "... kinda... worth... it...." *melt*

Whoopsies. Hey... it was a BariatricPal item though! lol. I just know that nearly every friggin' Protein snack that says has whey in it makes me sick but I was *hoping* this one wouldn't. It was delicious though. So if you can tolerate whey... highly recommend. LOL.

Are you lactose intolerant?

It honestly sounds like dumping to me. I had it just last night cuz I chose to have a crappy dinner instead of my planned dinner. :( Sucked. It sounds exactly like reactive hypoglycemia and some of the sugar alcohols cause this same reaction in bari-patients.

Oh no I just ordered those. I am sensitive to lots of things now, not whey at least since that’s what I only use. Did your surgeon have any other ideas for a good Protein substitute?

That's the weirdest thing. I eat yogurt and cottage cheese daily totally fine. I can have nonfat milk fine. But any whey Protein Shakes or whey Protein Snacks cause those dumping symptoms. I don't know if there's something in actual milk products that is soothing and prevents it and when the whey itself is isolated out/concentrated it hurts me but it's been like that since surgery, which is why I could only use soy shakes. No clue. I always get soooooo sweaty and flushed and usually vomit.

They are really tasty! lol. Just made me sick, personally. You'll probably love them. There's other proteins.... like pea (blarrrfff) and soy. RedCon1 makes MRELite shakes, which are made of salmon, beef, and turkey. Somehow. Just not nearly as many products available.

So wild! I'm still thinking it's the sugar alcohols though? Maybe the cottage cheese and yogurts use different sweeteners? That's just terrible though. Gah, I hate that feeling!

I was intolerant of whey Protein post surgery. Anything with any significant amount of whey made me miserably nauseous. Thankfully it resolved itself. It's a pretty narrow range of supplements that don't include whey. And once you exclude pea too (agree w @mousecat88, 🤮), it gets even tougher.

I tried a Bariatric Pal CarbRite brownie for this but it was inedible. Then they hosed me on return of items. Being charged 30% for shipping/handling makes me begin to look elsewhere. Be careful of their taste test guarantee!!!
