PowerBars were on sale this week….here are the recent products I tried from them:
Double Latte gel
I admit that I was hesitant to down this one but I LOVED it. Perhaps it’s because I’ve reduced my coffee drinking from a pot a day to one cup a month? Needless to say that this flavour was met with accolades from my taste buds! I still want to try the Clif Shot Double Espresso gel since they have better ingredients.
Yet another energy bar targeted towards women. It looks like the Canadian ones and US ones differ slightly from browsing the site. I tried the chocolate crunch and peanut butter crunch. Both were good and consumed post workout. I liked the fact that they are only 170 calories so it’s good for short workout days. I still have a french vanilla one to try. What I don’t like about these are the chocolate coatings would melt easily if you’re out on a long day and that the ingredients aren’t whole.
I bought this because the only flavour choices at the grocery store were Double Latte, Chocolate, and the Strawberry Banana (which I am not fond of.) I was also wary of taking this gel. For good reason too I suppose because I HATED it so much I couldn’t even force myself to consume it. This gel was waaaay too thick which was very off-putting to me.
