PowerBar Protein Plus review
Lovely Jaffa Cake flavour and plenty of protein
Designed to enhance recovery straight after training or racing, PowerBar’s Protein Plus 30% Jaffa Cake bar provides a respectable 17.2g of protein, courtesy of casein and whey from milk, and a small amount of soy protein.

Each 55g bar also has over 18g of carbohydrate for muscle glycogen replenishment. Of course ingredients mean nothing if the taste doesn’t cut it and PowerBar’s new Jaffa Cake flavour doesn’t disappoint.
The thin chocolate coating, light fluffy texture and very authentic Jaffa Cake flavour were an instant hit, while the low fat content (4.1g) made it light on the stomach. It is on the sweet side, though – worth bearing in mind if you have a more savoury palette.
Verdict: Well formulated and very tasty at a competitive price, 91%
