I wanted to share a treat with you I found recently. It has become a favorite at my home. It is called Power Crunch Protein Energy Bar. Trust me when I say it is not like other protein bars. It is like a decadent desert.
This is not a sponsored post. I bought these bars on my own. The first bar I tried, I had purchased a box of them online. I was making a vitamin order and saw these on a huge sale in the fall and wanted to give them a try. They had several flavors, but the only flavor they had left in stock that day was “mocha”. So I ordered a small box of them to try. Wow! I was impressed. It reminded me of the Italian dessert called tiramisu.
Then I found a few of the flavors at our local grocery store. They didn’t have the “mocha” in stock, so I chose “original” chocolate, hoping it would be as good. Oh my! The “original” chocolate Power Crunch bar was even better than the “mocha” flavor. These have now become a regular item on my grocery list.
My favorite way to enjoy them is to take a few minutes of quiet “mommy” time, usually reading while enjoying the Power Crunch bar with a cup of coffee or hot tea. It is such a treat. They have a delicious chocolate wafer crunch and in between the crunchy layers are more layers filled with a soft creamy chocolate filling and the entire outside is covered in chocolate. It is like a gourmet desert!
I was eating one of these during my quiet mommy time today, and my son asked me to save him a bite. So I agreed and asked if he would do a taste test and tell my viewers what he thinks about them. He was more than willing.
From my son “These are delicious. It is sweet, crunchy, silky, and chocolaty. Can I have another one?”
Here are some the nutrition details:
- Serving: 1 Bar (1.4 ounces)
- Calories: 205
- Protein: 13g
- Fat: 13g
- Carbs: 10g
- Fiber: 1g
- Iron 7%
- Calcium 10%
These bars are low sugar with only 5g. The sweetness comes from a combination of sugar, stevia, fructose, and monk fruit. This combination provides just the right sweetness, but still keeps the sugar low. The rest of the ingredients are basically whey protein, cocoa, vitamin enriched wheat flour, barley flour, oil, salt, lecithin, and a couple other items. Here is a photo of the nutrition label on the box.
The texture and taste is hard to describe, it is clean tasting and enjoyable. It kind of reminds me somewhat of a cookie called a chocolate wafer and a candy bar we enjoyed in my childhood called a “whatchamacallit bar”. I haven’t had those treats for years. That is the closest thing I can think of to describe how wonderful these bars taste.
I know 1 bar is a serving, but trust me when I say, it is hard to stop with just one bar. They are so delicious, you will want to eat two!
