Power Bar Energy Bars Review

Power bars are one of the most popular energy bar on the market, with its great taste and nutrition contents. Power bar comes in several types: the original, protein plus, powerbar harvest, and power bar Pria, and each type comes in their own distinct flavors. This review is for the orginal powerbars, but you can find reviews for the other types on the site here as well. ;-)

Power Bar Taste Test

Powerbar energy bars come in a variety of flavors, more than most other brands of protein bars. They come in: peanut butter, chocolate, apple cinnamon, banana, chocolate peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, mocha chip and wild berry. I've tried the oatmeal raisin and chocolate flavors, and they both tasted great.

This is a very 'flexible" bar, in that it's very chewy and soft. It has a nice soft outter coating, and a slightly crunch and chewy inner filling. Very nice tasting.

Overall, I'd give them a 8.5 on a scale of 10. These energy bars have a nice moisture, and chewiness, and aren't too powdery or dry.

Being a energy bar, its only fitting that power bars are high in carbs - each bar contains 45g carbs, 230 calories, 2.5g fat, 3g dietary fiber, and just 10g of protein. The amount of protein in it may seem low for bodybuilders, but this bar isn't meant to target bodybuilders. Power bar has a "Protein Plus" bar that's more geared for weight lifters.

The carbs in power bar is maltodextrin, a complex carbohydrate that has the highest rating on the glycemic index of 100. Its a very light tasting powder, so the protein bar isn't overly sweet. Maltodextrin is commonly used in weight gainers, and also used in making post workout shakes. It helps restore glycogen stores, and raise insulin levels leading to greater nutrient absorption.

Another big plus of power bar is that its very nicely priced. For a box of 12 bars, retail costs you about $23, which is quite a bit cheaper than most other types of protein bars. Of course, keep in mind that this energy bar is high in carbs, and has just 10g of proteins. You can get them online for under $15, and that works out to less than $1.25 per bar. ;-)
