What are Hurricane XS Bars?

Hurricane XS is the ultimate ‘all-in-one’ supplement containing a number of essential ingredients to help optimise muscle recovery. All these key ingredients have been added to one great tasting protein bar to provide a convenient but effective recovery supplement.

These taste so good, I can't even put it I to words properly! They taste like they are about to make you put on 10lbs and as a woman, chocolate is my absolute weakness! The blend is pretty decent, I like the fact they have a more expensive creatine in. The fact they have gelatine in kinda sucks. I don't eat meat, but gelatine I can accept, just not as often as I would like to consume these. Otherwise great product!!

Excellent, I use these as an afternoon snack as well as post workout, love the taste they are quite dense but that's grate when using them as a meal replacement and for recharging after a heavy work out ( which these bars definitely seem to help with when I have them in the afternoon before I train later) some people don't seem to be to keen on them but I will definitely be buying more and urge anyone to give them a try.

I ordered this product and I'm struggling to get through the first box. The flavour is very intense and has a strange after taste. The texture is expectedly heavy, but doesn't help if you're trying to eat it quickly to avoid tasting it. I'm sure the content of it is great, it's just not great when you have difficulty get through a single bar. Not sure how other people like this product, the majority of the reviews were very misleading. I would definitely not order this product again.

I bought this just coz I had some money left over out of my supplement allowance I give myself each month. Well, Il be buying every month now. The convenience and handiness of these bars are great. I highly recommend to anyone who has a busy schedule to take. Personally Il scoff one down half an hour before the gym and I fond I have alot more energy, plus, I'm seeing greater improvements in performance and growth. A must buy

Buy this if you're looking for a bar packed with creatine, glutamine and a lot of protein, but if you're looking for something that has a really nice taste then I wouldn't recommend this. Don't know what the other guy is talking about when he says it's the nicest bar he's ever tasted, you can really taste the creatine and glutamine in it. Overall I would give it a 3/5 because of the taste, but me personally I bought them for the contents and not the taste.

I was unsure wether to purchase this product because people were complaining about taste, however it literally tastes like a Jaffa cake! I will have this after a tough workout and l add it with plenty of water i feel regenerated within the hour after a workout! Great product, not tried the powder however if you're not sure about buying the powder buy this first!

These are by far my favourite bars on here. fewer calories than most (eg flapjack bars) and you also get the creatine and leucine. decent fibre content too. They even taste great (only had choc orange). Perfect for a post-workout protein hit when you can't get a shake down you. I often have them after the gym if I know I'm not gunna be eating for a while after) Only downside I've found is the chocolate and topping sticks to the wrapper on a hot day, making them messy to eat!

Totally unimpressed with this product, primarily as it's dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate. This is not made clear on the description or the photo, you need to scrutinise the ingredients to determine so be warned. Even less impressed with MyProtein's generic robotic response! I managed to get through 2 bars before admitting defeat. Other than the taste and the texture, trying to peel it from your teeth is another challenge. Avoid

Literally ordered these to top up my order to the minimum amount required for a promotional discount. Pros: Tastes good (for what it is) Not as chewy as alternatives (usually get jaw ache) Good if like me, you get the munchies at night (old habits die hard and all that) Cons: Contains at least FIVE E-numbers I eat very clean an purchased these in search of a healthier, cleaner alternative to your everyday snacks. Although I am disappointed with the amount of artificial ingredients.

I struggled to get through the box, I bought them as a post workout supplement which would be easy to eat. This is far from easy to eat as it is very thick and the taste is dreadful. However, the results have been very good due to the large amount of supplements in each bar. Personally, would not buy again and wouldn't recommend!

Having tried a few different protein bars, this is by far the nicest. It's a bit heavy to eat but that's expected considering its nutritional value. Would recommend to anyone else with a busy work schedule that can't quite fit in all those meals a day.

Having tasted quite a few bars from different suppliers, the hurricane bar is not the worst (Maximuscle) but they are also not the nicest tasting (other myprotein bars are far more flavoursome and easier to eat). However, the level of protein per bar cannot be matched. So if you can stand the powdery texture (not as bad as is sounds), then these bars make for a good protein intake on the go.

The Hurricane XS bar is a great protein supplement that can be taken alongside a balanced diet at any time in the day. The convenience of eating a chocolate bar in the afternoon at my desk or on the go is wonderful. No need to prepare anything or carry around shakers etc. just put in alongside the packed lunch. This is the only protein supplement i take and it has had astonishing results. My muscle size, strength and endurance has increased significantly. The increased creatine saturation keeps me working longer in the gym and thus i can be more efficient in my work-outs. I'm 5kg heavier, with no additional body fat, just lean defined muscle. The bar itself is delicious, with a smooth chocolate outer coating, and delicious chocolate orange centre. It can be a bit chewy due to the density so i'd suggest warming it up slightly either in your pocket for 30 minutes which is what i do at work, or i imagine in the microwave for 5-10 seconds (i haven't tried this). Highly recommended for those looking to make their workouts that little more effective without the hassle of shakes.

These hurricane XS bars are great. I have one a day to keep the Creatine saturation in my body at a constant level and the results have been astounding. Over 8 weeks my strength, endurance and overall performance in the gym has improved astonishingly. This is the only supplement i take or have ever taken, previously being averse to protein supplementation, and it's incredible. Helps build strong, lean and defined muscle, with no adverse affects on digestion, all from eating a delicious chocolate bar. Great work MyProtein!

I use this bar as an afternoon snack after lunch before heading to the gym. The chocolate coating is delicious, with the chocolate orange being a really nice, natural flavour. You wouldn't really know this was a protein bar based upon the flavour. It is quite dense and chewy as would be expected of any bar like this, and so is often best warmed up either by leaving it in your pocket or left in the sun for a few minutes. I haven't tried microwaving it but imagine 10 seconds might do the same. Having had the bars daily for 8 weeks going to the gym 5 times a week, the results have been astounding. Large increases in muscle growth, i'm benching 30-40Kg more, with greater endurance and great muscle definition. This is the only protein supplement i take and is a great addition to a normal well balanced diet.

Goes Well With:

It's a chocolate bar, have it with lunch or as an afternoon snack. Have something to drink alongside it as the density of the bar can dry out the mouth.

These bars are a great afternoon snack when the sugar craving kicks in an hour after lunch. The chocolate coating is delicious and although when cold the bars can be quite tough and chewy, i find if you leave it in your pocket for 30 minutes to warm up with your body heat, this is no longer a problem. It then provides you with the necessary carbs, sugar and protein for an effective session and recovery. I usually have it around an hour and a half before heading to the gym. Great value for money and a really great addition to a balanced diet. This is the only protein i take and having cycled it for 8 weeks with one week off (as creatine should be), it has had tremendous effects in muscle and strength growth, increasing size but more importantly definition.

Goes Well With:

Water - The bar can dry out your mouth due to its high density so i eat at my desk with a bottle of water

Bars made out to deliver a lot, and they certainly do! Flavour is great, with good depth to the orange flavour, and the texture is much more palletable than some protein bars I have tried. These are also great warmed up with some fat free frozen yoghurt, to give a great dessert that is guilt free! Would definately re-purchase.

On there own straight from the gym. Use as a dessert or a snack to boost protin intake, and satisfy the sweet craving.

Great value from my protein . tastes great like fudge. Also has aminos in for muscle building . Not too high calorie either Only suggestion is to have a version without creatine as I don't need it and Creatine seems to make me gain weight when I have it regularly

I've tried many protein bars and honestly this is the worse one... The flavour is very intense and artificial... I even have a very bad feeling eating this bar as it has a lot of artificial ingredients and preservatives. I'm usually very satisfied with MP products, but I won't definitely buy this bar again.

Got the Chocolate Orange flavour - really impressed. Cannot comment on the effectiveness of the product but for taste, texture, digestibility and price they are excellent. High quality ingredients and to be honest they dont taste like a protein bar - none of the gritty powdery misery of other bars or chewing until your jaw falls off. Very impressed, will be buying more.
