PowerBar Triple Threat Layered Bar Review By Dave

POWERBAR TRIPLE THREAT (CARAMEL PEANUT FUSION)

The Claim:

"Fuels like a PowerBar, tastes like a candy bar, this great tasting snack will keep you going between meals, whether at work or play."

We'll touch on the taste in the category entitled "taste." 230 calories comprised of a blend of carbohydrates, protein and fats makes for a fulfilling in-between meal snack. Also, the array of vitamins and minerals present in PowerBar Triple Threat is a likeable addition.

"Layered for those who want a more nutritious "candy bar" experience. Delivers the nutritious energy you expect from PowerBar. For active guys who want the taste of a candy bar yet seek a nutritious energy snack to stave off hunger, PowerBar introduces new Powerbar Triple Threat Layered -- a line of four new energy snack bars that fuel like a Powerbar and taste like a candy bar."

Again, we'll specifically talk about the taste below in this article. However, there is truth to this claim. Keep in mind, as stated in the claim, this is a "snack" and is not meant to replace an actual meal. No supplement is preferable over a nutritious meal.

"Our consumer research is consistent when talking with guys who play sports or work out regularly and who think about personal nutrition: They feel they must trade off taste for nutrition when choosing an energy snack," said PowerBar Associate Brand Manager Todd Wehmann. "They acknowledge that healthier snacks exist; however, to them nothing tastes like a candy bar. Our new Triple Threat bars offer these guys a new snack alternative -- one that delivers the taste they want and the convenient energy and nutrition they need."

Being one of these individual's, I can attest to the often poor taste of protein/meal-replacement bars in comparison to candy/chocolate bars. We can't be fooled though, PowerBar Triple Threat contains its fair share of sugar (15 grams). However, when we consider that chocolate bars often have double this, or more, it's obvious which is the preference. Also, chocolate bars often lack an adequate amount of protein. All that being said, if you're on a low carbohydrate diet (especially if you're specifically trying to avoid simple carbohydrates) this may not be the bar for you.

"Backed by two decades of nutritional expertise, Powerbar Triple Threat Layered bars offer men more than great taste. Each 55-gram bar is fortified with sixteen vitamins and minerals and a balance of carbohydrates, protein and fiber. The bars provide 100 percent daily value of vitamins C and E, and ten grams of protein, four grams of fiber and 30 to 32 grams of carbohydrates. Designed to conveniently stash in an office desk drawer or a gym bag, Powerbar Triple Threat Layered bars can be eaten at any time of the day for a tasty and nutritious energy boost. The bars contain 220 to 230 calories and are free of trans fats."

All information stated above is accurate according to my minimal investigation. If you're worried about the fat content, I would consult the ingredients list to discover what fat is present, then search to see if these fats are healthful as a part of your personal diet.

In regards to the claim, I felt that PowerBar Triple Threat was honest for the most part. Therefore, I award PowerBar Triple Threat an 8/10 for the claim.

Taste:

PowerBar Triple Threat's claim constantly makes reference to the "candy bar" taste that PowerBar Triple Threat supposedly contains. I felt that this wasn't far from the truth. I found that PowerBar Triple Threat Caramel Peanut Fusion flavour had a tasty chocolate and sweet caramel taste, similar to that of a chocolate bar. Therefore, for taste, I award PowerBar Triple Threat a 9.5/10.

Texture:

I found that PowerBar Triple Threat had a soft and somewhat chewy texture with a slight crunch that I enjoyed thoroughly. Therefore, for texture, I award PowerBar Triple Threat a 9.5/10.

Overall Review:

I felt that the claim was in order. The taste was great and the texture was pleasing. The only improvement I would suggest is that it contain more protein. However, this would more than likely upset the taste. Overall, I was very pleased with the energy bar. Therefore, for an overall review, I award PowerBar Triple Threat Caramel Peanut Fusion a 9/10.
