PowerBar Performance bar £1.35

The original energy bar is an acquired taste

BikeRadar score 3/5

A high tech and highly refined concentrated source of carbohydrate. On cold days this very sweet slab can be hard to chew, so brush your teeth as soon as possible after eating one.

PowerBar is billed as a chewy cereal sportsbar with vitamins, minerals and amino acids. For many the orginal energy bar is an acquired taste, which explains its relatively low overall score - some people really like them though.

The packaging is notably tough, which makes PowerBars great emergency food - you can leave them in your bag for months and they'll still be edible.

PowerBars are also packed with vitamins and minerals - the supplementation is up to and over the RDA for many ingredients, which is probably why the packaging recommends you only eat one a day.

Flavours: Cookies & Cream, Caffeinated Coconut Crisp, Caffeinated Raspberry & Cream, Chocolate, Wild Berry, Banana, Apple-Cinnamon, Vanilla-Crisp
