Finally! A review of KetoBrick | Keto Savage’s meal replacement bar
Hoooo! Another week, with a video starting with a “hoo”, because I’m just that excited.
This is the second week in a row that I’m
reviewing a product I’ve been wanting to
try for a long time. This week, the
product in question is finally within my
clutches. It has been SO elusive. It’s
Keto Savage’s Keto Brick. I’m gonna review it, right after this. Hey, guys! Welcome to
A.D. Keto. My name is Aaron. This is the
channel where you can watch a weird dad
work his way through the ketogenic diet.
I do some keto eating vlogs, I do some
keto product reviews, and I do some keto
giveaways. If this is your first time
here, please consider subscribing, and if
you do, make sure you’re on Notification
Squad by clicking the bell. So guys, I’ve got a Keto Brick in my hand. I’ve been trying
to get a Keto Brick in my hand for a
while now. Before I get into how I happened
to procure this Keto Brick, I’ll give you
a little bit of backstory about Keto Brick.
Keto Brick is a product, the
brainchild of Mr. Robert Sikes, aka Keto
Savage and his fiancee, Crystal Love. You
can see their Instagrams right over here.
Super-cool guy. He’s a bodybuilder in
Arkansas — they both are. Both bodybuilders
in Arkansas. And the story of Keto Brick,
as I understand it, is that Robert made
one for himself one day, to just bring to
the gym, because he wanted something that
had a lot of calories, and had perfect keto
macros. And some eagle-eyed viewer on one
of his vlogs saw it, and said, “Hey, what is
that?”, and he replied, “It’s something I
made for myself. It’s got a thousand
calories. It’s got really good keto
macros.” And the person said, “Ooh, can I get one?” And so a little light bulb went off,
and he started… he and Crystal started
making these available for people to
purchase, and they have become incredibly popular within our little keto community.
It’s so tough to get your hands on one
of these. Now Robert and Crystal have
been pumping out run after run of Keto
Brick, as many as they can possibly make,
usually working into the wee hours of
the evening. Mixing and creating and
molding these bricks, and they sell out
in a matter of minutes when they become
available. So for the last three months, I’ve been
on an email list that says, “Hey Keto
Bricks are available.” And by the time I
get to the store, they’re gone. This last
run in June, I was convinced that I was
going to score myself a Keto Brick. I got
the email notification that they were
available, went to the site, placed a
brick in my cart. It was in my cart! And
then I couldn’t decide what payment
method I wanted to use. I was like, “Do I use
my credit card…? Do I use PayPal…?” and by the time I decided, my brick was gone,
because someone had purchased one of the larger quantities. Robert sells them in
single bricks, like this one. He also
sells a week supply — seven bricks, I
believe, and a 14-day supply, which I
believe is 14 bricks. So I had a single
brick in my cart, someone grabbed a 14-day supply, and my brick was sadly gone.
And I… you know, posted my faux-angst to my Instagram stories. I was like, “Ugh, I
thought this was the month!” However! One of my viewers, a guy named KetoBFray, the guy
who hooked me up last week
in the Hinton’s Pig Chips review with
some macronutrient knowledge, has hooked me up for the second week in a row. He
happened to acquire a two-week supply of Keto Bricks on this most recent June
run…Now that I think about it, maybe HE
was the one responsible for my little
solo brick disappearing from my cart! But
all is forgiven, because he saw my
Instagram story, and he was like, “Dude, I will send you a Brick so you can review it,
how’s that?” I was like, “Amazing!” So shout out to KetoBFray. His YouTube
channel is right up here. Check it out,
because not only has he hooked me up two
times in the past two weeks, but the guy has lost over 270 pounds in 14 months
on the keto diet, which is tough to fathom. That’s almost as much as I weighed when
I started keto. He’s lost me, basically. In
the last year. Insane. Well done, sir. And
thank you so much, again. Super-kind of
you. Super-generous to send me one of
your 14 Bricks. This review would not be
happening without you, my friend.
So Keto Brick! Product of Keto Savage.
I appreciate the branding. Colors on
brand. Black packaging. Cool, shiny black
packaging. Red sticker. I’m actually gonna
read you the nutrition information ahead
of time, because I have a feeling I’m
going to just mangle this bag. So before
I destroy this information, I’ll read
it to you. This is meant as a meal
replacement bar. There are a thousand
calories. Total fat: 90 grams. Saturated
fat: 58 grams. 900…
I’m sorry. 790 milligrams of sodium, 16
carbs, 12 dietary fiber, so that’s four net
carbs per brick. 31 grams of protein. It also has 130 milligrams of potassium, 20
milligrams of calcium, and a little bit —
0.8 milligrams of iron. Let’s check out
the ingredients. Raw organic cacao butter,
plant-based protein powder, which in
parentheses includes pea protein isolate,
organic brown rice protein concentrate,
natural chocolate mocha flavor, cocoa,
stevia leaf extract, gum blend (which is
cognac gum, guar gum, and tara gum). organic sacha inchi, sea salt, monk fruit extract,
and digestol, which is a vegan enzyme
blend. Then there’s MCT powder (which
contains MCT oil and achacha fiber),
golden flaxseed meal, raw organic
fermented cacao nibs, ground coffee beans, and Himalayan salt. Manufactured at
Little Rock Arkansas.
So there’s your macros. There’s your
nutrition information. Touted as shelf-stable. And Robert sent out a warning
when this latest batch went out, saying,
you know, “These may be sitting in mail
trucks, in 100-degree heat. There’s a
small chance you could receive a Keto
Blob instead of a Keto Brick. But pop it
in the fridge and it will be just as
fine. It may lose its shape a little bit,
but it’ll be just as delicious and
nutritious.” So I believe mine to still be
in brick shape. I can sort of feel it
through… the through the wrapper here, a
little bit. But yeah, perfect keto macros:
81.5% fat, 12.5% protein, 6.5% carbs. Poifect. So moment of
truth. Let’s dig in to it. It’s almost a
shame to rip into this bag, it’s so
pretty. But let’s rip across here. Oh, I’ve done
it wrong. I have done it wrong. Have I? No.
I guess we’re okay. And it’s a resealable
bag. Yay! Good job, Robert. There is Keto Brick. In brick form, I’m happy to say!
Look at that guy. Nice! Now the only thing missing from this, because this came from KetoBFray’s
14-pack — it does not contain the
cool Keto Savage wristband, which… when
you normally… when you buy one of these, it comes wrapped up in a wristband. This,
sadly, is without one. That’s okay.
Robert I’ll send you my address.
So, it’s got this cool foil.
There is the color. There. All right.
Mm-hmm. Oh, man.
Sweeter than I expected. Oh, that’s good.
Coffee’s coming through. Mocha is coming
through. It’s like a chocolate mocha. I
think I expected it to be chewier than
it is. It’s a little chalky, which is not
to say I don’t like that. I think that
that’s a really… I think it works well.
Mmm. Oh, yeah. Man, that is um… that’s really good. For some reason, the last thing I
expected was flavor.
You know, you think, “This is a bar that a
bodybuilder made, so that he could have
energy for the gym. Probably the last
thing on his mind is taste.” But this is
really good. The ground coffee beans are
my favorite part.
Yeah, there’s like… a really great
combination of coffee — the coffee is what
comes through most for me — there’s also like… a hot chocolatey kind of flavor. Wow.
Look at that guy.
So nice. I must say, I’m a fan of the Keto
Brick. It’s worth the wait.
What else is there to say? It tastes
fantastic. The texture is surprising, and
That’s really something. Robert and
Crystal, you’ve got a winner here. There’s
a reason these things are selling out
fast, and… Well, there are several reasons,
the first of which is that it’s the
perfect keto macros. But man, I was not
expecting it to taste as good as it
tastes. Well done, guys. I am so very, very
impressed. One more bite, here. I don’t
think I’m gonna finish the whole thing.
Mmm. Oh, that coffee flavor is really
coming through. So good. So there you have
it, guys. That’s my review of Keto Brick.
it is yet another product from another
keto-conscious company, run by great
people. So it’s amazing.
Get yourself a brick. Good luck getting
one. I know that they just finished — as of
this recording — they just finished a
relatively large run of bricks,
I think 850, Robert said in the in the
vlog that I just watched? So hopefully
you guys will be able to snag one of
these. They’re so worth the wait. Really
impressive. Very happy for these guys, and all the success that they’re having.
These things sell out so quickly. So
thank you, Robert and
Crystal, for this amazing product. So let
me know what you guys think of Keto
Brick, should you happen to get your
hands on one. I’d love to hear from you
in the comments. So that’s gonna wrap it
up for this video! Thank you again to
KetoBFray for hooking me up with this
bad boy. I hope you guys have a fantastic
day, and I will see you next time.
