Multicarbo Hi-Energy (13)
Multipower’s bar is distinctive right from the start. A tight wrapper that needs peeling off rather than the bar popping out makes it awkward on the bike too.
The bar inside is from the gym rather than deli side of the line. It chews down very quickly but leaves a very synthetic, chocolatesque taste that lingers longer than a lot of testers liked.
Guarana gives you mental pep but again our more straight-edged, low stimulant-dependent testers didn’t appreciate the sensation that added.
If you want a bar that you won’t ‘accidentally’ snack on, though, the carb and protein balance means a steady energy delivery that works for recovery too.
