If you caught any of Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette, you are well aware she's a self-proclaimed "cookie monster." But what happens to Hannah when she faces a line-up of protein cookies in place of suitors?
Before she trades in the Bachelor Mansion for the ballroom on Dancing With the Stars, Hannah offered her unfiltered opinion of protein cookies to Women's Health for our "Food Fight" video series. No surprise, she doesn't hold anything back when critiquing each bite.
Hannah starts with an optimistic attitude and a high bar. "I love cookies so much," she says. "I have the biggest sweet tooth. My mom makes the best chocolate chip cookies ever...but these are not her chocolate chip cookies."
The eight protein cookies set out before her are, um, a departure for Hannah. "I don't normally consume protein shakes or protein bars," she says. "I normally consume cookies though." Fair enough.
The protein cookies contain up to 16 grams of protein each, but Hannah is wary of the low sugar content. "You can't make a cookie a protein bar," Hannah says. "You don't have to put the protein in your cookie. Don't mess up something that's already so good."
Check out the full list of protein cookies that Hannah tried:
- Lenny & Larry’s Crunchy Chocolate Chip
- Lenny & Larry’s Birthday Cake
- Lenny & Larry’s White Chocolaty Macadamia
- Quest Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
- Lenny & Larry’s Oatmeal Raisin
- Quest Double Chocolate Chip
- Lenny & Larry’s Crunchy Double Chocolate
- Quest Peanut Butter
The protein cookies just about do her in. "I guess it's true protein makes you full because I'm full on these protein cookies," she says. Hannah is a good sport to the end, though. "I'm going to do one more because I care." She takes her last bite and gives her final verdict: "I think I'm out of this protein cookie game."
Watch the video to see which one of the protein cookies won this seriously tough critic over. (Unlike her tenure as The Bachelorette, she doesn't dump them all in the end—she does choose a victor.)
Still: "This might be the last time I ever eat a protein cookie," Hannah said. "I want real cookies, no protein, all sugar, all fat, all the bad things."
