We have to be honest: We weren’t crazy about any of the chocolate chip protein cookies we sampled. We suspect they may be an acquired taste. (When we indulge in cookies, we want them to be sweet and crave-worthy.) The upside is that these cookies really pack on the protein. So if you’re looking for a protein boost, give these products a try.
