Taste is what separates Cake Bites from any similar high protein product. They stomp all over protein bars and compared to other dessert style protein foods, these are made using only the very best forms of protein delivering 20g of protein per serving. With a light, airy interior, and coated layers they deliver outstanding taste.

When

The nutritional profile of Cake Bites makes them ideal as a snack at any time of the day and with their high protein content and low fat levels they can work with any type of diet.

Who

We think anyone who follows a healthy diet focused around high protein levels will fall in love with these.

Product Guide

How it Works

Predator Nutrition Cake Bites Review

Optimum Nutrition have introduced a few innovations over the years, but since the introduction of Amino Energy, which established the anytime energy category they have been quiet but when we heard about their plans for making miniature protein cakes, our dessert loving minds were overwhelmed by excitement.

Protein + Cake = Protein Bites

In this review the most important thing to note is that this is not a small protein bar, something which would have been an immense disappointment. Instead, Cake Bites is a delicious whipped cake made in a bite-size format which means you can enjoy it at any time of the day; as a snack between meals without ruining your appetite, as a post-meal dessert, or as a night time treat while you relax at home.

Cake Bites - Taste and Texture Review

While the nutritional composition is great we want to start off with the factor that can turn a regular protein food from good to great, and that is how it tastes. 

With a name like Cake Bites expectations are going to be high. When you unpeel the wrapper the first thing you notice is that in each wrapper there are three individual portions of protein cakes, each one coated in mouthwatering frosting, just like a real cake. Senses overcome, here is our review on each of the flavours.

Cake Bites - Birthday Cake Review

As soon as we saw the white frosted layer with little millions on top we thought this was going to be our favourite. Each small cake retains an appealing round shape which was difficult to resist swallowing whole but we took a bite and immediately got a flavour hit which we can only say resembled actual birthday cake to a tee, the frosting and the millions making a perfect combination followed by the inside which was pleasingly sweet without being overpoweringly so.

With each Cake Bite being quite small, we think people will really struggle with just one of these. As with all of the Cake Bites flavours each cake is whipped meaning it contains more air than a standard protein bar making the act of eating this much closer to a real cake than to the taffy texture of a protein bar. We definitely expect to see more brands coming out with whipped protein foods given how well this is executed.

Cake Bites - Red Velvet Cake Review

Red Velvet Cake is a flavour which is relatively new to the protein market, the first time we had this was in Body Nutrition's Trutein and that was an immediate hit among Predator customers so we expected similar greatness here.

When you take a bit of this you get the familiar taste of Red Velvet and even moreso than the Birthday Cake version, we think this is very close to the real thing. The combination of a frosted layer and Red Velvet's creamy, sweet deliciousness makes this another immense flavour from ON.

Cake Bites - Chocolate Dipped Cherry Review

We were somewhat suprised at this flavour. It is the only flavour of the three which has a chocolate coating which makes it quite a different taste experience. Cherry is a flavour that not everybody loves but what we will say is that if you like it then you will love this but for us this is probably the flavour which is relatively the weakest.

With that said, compared to a chocolate cherry flavoured protein bar, this absolutely blows away the competition.

Protein Composition - Cake Bites Uses Dairy Protein

We've had a few dessert style protein snacks in the past but invariably they tend to contain plenty of soy protein, a protein many would rather avoid. Cake Bites only include the very highest quality of protein in whey isolate, milk isolate, whey concentrate and milk protein concentrate which means each serving of Cake Bites results in 20g of protein from sources of protein rich in recovery boosting bcaa's. You don't normally think of cake as being conducive to building muscle but Optimum Nutrition's version most certainly will help you in that regard.

Summary

We can see a nation of Cake Bites addicts as soon as people try these. They really are an exceptional product which is innovative in a number of areas; the whipped manufacturing process, the bite-sized snacks and of course Optimum managing to make them taste amazing while retaining a high quality nutritional profile.

Amazing breakthrough protein cake!

Love these. As good as bars like combat crunch and carb killa are, these are on another level thanks to the texture which is unlike any other protein bar/brownie out there - light, fluffy and addictive!

Red velvet cake

Tasted really nice but the only downside is the cost. The 20g protein is spread throughout the 3 pieces.
