Review: Powerbar Energize Mango Passion Fruit energy bar
A bit sticky but excellent formulation and taste – great value too
Containing 71.9% carbohydrate and just 3.7% fat, PowerBar’s Energize bar is designed for use before and during sport.
With a 2:1 ratio of glucose to fructose and added magnesium, it’s clear that PowerBar has made performance a priority with this bar’s formulation.
Fortunately, however, this is not at the expense of taste, which is authentic and noticeably ‘mangoey’. The texture is good too – very moist and light on the stomach, albeit rather sticky.
This stickiness makes it quite tricky to open the wrapper and chomp the bar on the move, but with a very competitive price of just £1 per bar, this is a minor issue.
