In the daily hustle and bustle, it’s not always possible to eat correctly. At such moments, quick snacks that don’t harm my figure are of great help. I have a tasty and healthy candy bar in my bag. I can quickly and easily snack at such moments when there is no time for a complete meal. Today my review will be devoted to the Express Bars (Herbalife Express F1 Bar with Cookies’ n Cream flavor).
Formula 1 Express is a completely balanced meal in the form of a candy bar that will quickly fight hunger, providing the body with protein, fiber, and all the necessary vitamins and minerals. In addition, the meal replacement bar comes in a convenient format – always at hand! So now you can eat a balanced diet wherever you are.
The bars are sold in a pack of 7, packed in a cardboard box with all the necessary information about the product ingredients, calories, etc.
- Formula 1 Express provides 18% of the daily need for protein and 27% dietary fiber.
- It contains a complex of 23 essential vitamins and minerals. An easy way to control your caloric intake even on the go.

Texture, flavor, and aroma
The bars look like most granola-based fitness bars. It contains mainly soy pellets and pieces that look like chocolate crisps. It has two layers: the bottom looks like a chocolate base, and the top is a nutty granola-like layer.
Express meal bar is moderately sweet and delicious. The flavor is vanilla chocolate, delicious. The bar has a dense but not rigid consistency.
It doesn’t crumble, but it’s easy to bite, break, and cut. The candy bar does not stick to your teeth and contains hard ingredients.
All sweet tooth will love it; it goes great with tea, coffee, or just water. Its sweet taste can quench cravings for sweets while not harming the figure. This bar is a great snack when you want something sweet or feel hungry.
How to take it?
You can replace any meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) with one bar of Formula 1 Express. It is recommended to take less than 1-2 bars per day.
The manufacturer advises you to eat a candy bar every time you feel hungry. After eating the bar, wash down at least a glass of water since it has a lot of fiber. The bar is easy to take with you on the road, work, school, or the gym.
How does it work?
F1 express bar, thanks to its nutritional composition, can quickly eliminate the feeling of hunger and maintain a sense of satiety on average for up to 3 or even 4 hours. I think this is an excellent indicator for such a low-calorie product.
Thanks to the product’s nutritional composition, the bar not only eliminates the feeling of hunger but also saturates the body with essential vitamins and microelements.
It also contains fiber, necessary for the activity of the gastrointestinal tract.
Its low-calorie content allows you to reduce the calories in your daily diet, resulting in weight loss. For example, in one meal replacement bar, “Formula 1 Express” 207 kcal, and in a bar “Snickers” – 490 kcal. In addition, the feeling of fullness lasts for a long time, unlike candy or chocolate bars.
Who will benefit from the bars?
I would recommend the bar “Formula 1 Express” to all people who depend on sweets and cannot give them up in any way and all who want to have a slim figure and control weight. This bar is incredibly delicious and low-carb. Once you try a Herbalife bar, you immediately have no desire to eat unhealthy chocolates.
Formula 1 shake or F1 bars – which to choose?
The energy value is 207 kcal in one bar, approximately equal to the calories in one serving of F1 shake. The ratio of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates and the vitamin-mineral component is similar to the smoothie.
The product is convenient to use outside the home, especially when traveling, and a snack (half a bar for a snack can be enough). However, drinking water after the snack is essential because the product has a lot of fiber, which always requires enough water.
The Formula 1 shake replacement meal currently has a choice of many flavors. In terms of price, one serving of the shake and one bar cost the same. When eating at home, I give preference to the smoothie.
I mostly prefer to eat the bars as a snack; they are great for fighting hunger and satiety. In the end, there is no difference in price and energy value. It is only a question of taste preference.
The comparison with the nutritional value of foods
