  • The Power In A Power Bar

    Oct 7, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: An inexpensive bar with a lot of vitamins.
    Cons: A lot of sugar and not enough protein.

    Summary: I am reviewing PowerBars and will start with this statement: What you are using this and any bar for is really more important than most people realize. If you are eating one for energy, it should have more carbohydrates than a low-carb bar will ... read more

    Feb 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: tasty - may cause cravings for more - good on the go
    Cons: too sweet, high glycemic index

    Summary: I was first introduced to the Power Bar 3 years back, hiking up a mountain at about 10,000 ft level. Those things surely tasted great up there. Now, no longer having to climb mountains, I take them with me on long trips where I know I don't want to buy ... read more

    Cons: melt easily; get rock hard easily

    Summary: I started buying power bars about 1.5 years ago for use on longer mountain hikes. They looked like a good source of calories for source endeavors. The taste is an acquired one, but it is not terrible - look for apple-cinammon, peanut butter, ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to find
    Cons: weird texture

    Summary: I found the Power Bar Vanilla Crisp bar to be the tastiest of all the non-Harvest-type Power Bars. I have tried several other flavours in the Power Bar lineup and was never very pleased about them but decided to give it a go and give them a try again ... read more

    Pros: Was reasonably priced
    Cons: tasted like vitamins, too chewy and not enough peanutty flavor...the list goes on

    Summary: I can’t tell you how many Epinion reviews I’ve read on energy bars. Who knows, I’ve quite possibly read all of them. Some of the members of epinions that I read frequently have even made it their life goal to try every energy bar on the market and ... read more

  • Power Bar - An Added Boost of Needed Energy

    May 27, 2001 by

    Cons: A little expensive and has a so-so taste

  • Don't eat a power bar if you want to keep your lunch down.

    May 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: If you are starving and in a rush, try it if you dare
    Cons: Disgusting!! I gagged with every bite!

    Summary: Power Bars have a bed taste and a texture that doesn't jive. The texture bothered me the worst. The taste was so terrible, that, although I was famished, I could not finish the bar. I literally almost threw up with every bite. The best description I ... read more

    Pros: Tatses good with lots of vitamins and protein!
    Cons: Wildberry taste like sour berries.

    Summary: Okay, You probably want to know what I'm doing writing an opinion on Powerbar. Well, I have a high metabolic rate and need help to get the calories in. (If you read my Boost article, this sentence may sound familiar!) Out of all bars, why Powerbar? ... read more

    Summary: I needed a solution. The demands of my job mean that I sometimes don't get to leave my desk for a bathroom break--let alone a lunch break. When I saw a case of Power Bars at our local bulk discount store (equivalent of Costco) I figured I'd found ... read more

    Cons: Hard to chew, yucky taste, price, high calories

    Summary: Nutrition Bars In General As a health specialist, I feel that you can accomplish just as much or more by simply eating right than by downing expensive bars. I also realize that for the athlete and average person who is on-the-go a lot, it's ... read more

    Cons: not weatherproof; expensive

    Pros: Variety of flavors, energy boost, tastes pretty good.
    Cons: Kind of expensive, some flvors taste bad, and kind of a cardboard texture.

    Summary: I found that PowerBars aren't the worst thing to eat when you want an energy boosting snack! I used to think that PowerBars taste bad and they don't do anything for you, but that was before I actually had one! I started to eat them, when I was ... read more
